Donald Warrin Collection

Author and historian Donald Warrin has donated his research materials to the Ferreira-Mendes Portuguese-American Archives. This collection is composed of copies of the primary and secondary sources that were used in the writing of So Ends This Day: The Portuguese in American Whaling, 1765–1927 and Land, As Far As the Eye Can See: Portuguese in the Old West both published by Tagus Press of the Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture at UMD. The collection contains materials that were not included in their respective books, Dr. Warrin’s personal documents regarding the materials, and auxiliary information regarding Portuguese immigrants in the United States.

Land, As Far as the Eye Can See: Portuguese in the Old West was recently reprinted and is described by the publisher as “An entertaining and innovative account of pioneering Portuguese men and women who settled the vast frontier of the American West”. It tells the story of enterprising Portuguese immigrants into the wider story of the Old West with biographies that include those who stood out and glimpses of obscure yet important settlers.

The collection will be available for public consultation in the next couple of months.
