New York Times: Gabriel García Márquez’s Archive Freely Available Online

New York Times: Gabriel García Márquez’s Archive Freely Available Online. “When Gabriel García Márquez’s archive was sold to the University of Texas two years ago, some decried the fact that the literary remains of Latin America’s foremost novelist — and a fierce critic of American imperialism — had come to rest in the United States. But now, the university’s Harry Ransom Center has digitized and made freely available about half of the collection, making some 27,000 page scans and other images visible to anyone in the world with an internet connection.”

Gabriel García Márquez Archive to Be Digitized

The University of Texas at Austin’s Harry Ransom Center has received a grant to digitize the Gabriel García Márquez archive. “Sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the award will take effect June 2016 in the form of an 18-month project. During this time, manuscripts, notebooks, scrapbooks, photographs, and other relics from the Colombian writer’s archive, which dates from 1950 through 2013, will be scanned and published online.”
