In Pursuit of Honor and Power: Noblemen of the Southern Cross in Nineteenth Century in Brazil

By Eul - Soo Pang | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

Various Brazilian and North American scholars, genealogists, and archivists were of invaluable assistance to me while I was writing this book. José Gabriel da Costa Pinto, Rui Vieira da Cunha, Jaime Antunes da Silva, and Hamilton de Mattos Monteiro, all of the Arquivo Nacional, in Rio de Janeiro (and the latter a professor of history at the Universidade de Brasília since 1979), provided special guidance in archival materials and in tracking down descendants of old families. Staff members of the Instituto Histórico e Geográfico Brasileiro, the Biblioteca Nacional, and the Itamarati Library, in Rio, were of considerable help as well. Maria Amélia dos Miguéis, formerly of the Museu Imperial and now with Casa Rui Barbosa, granted me access to numerous personal archives of the imperial household in Petrópolis.

My research was also conducted in São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Brasília, Bahia, Pernambuco, and Goiás, all of which contained many of the vital materials that went into this book. It was a particular pleasure to research outside such metropolises as Rio and São Paulo. My fondest memories of good "hunts" occurred not in the well organized archives and historical institutes of the large cities, but in courthouses in Valença, Santo Amaro, Leopoldina, Itu, Goiás Velho, and Goiânia. Many of the archival staffs of these places were walking deposits of local history, myths, and oral traditions that they were willing to share with me. Although I cannot possibly name them all, I extend my deep appreciation for their assistance.

My original field trip to Brazil for this project was financed by a National Endowment for the Humanities Research Fellowship in 1977.
