LAMP has acquired a set of 109 reels of microfilm containing approximately 88,000 manuscript pages of songs, legends, nursery rhymes, and traditional stories from rural Argentina. The materials were compiled by Argentine elementary school teachers in 1921, from elderly residents of many rural areas in Argentina. The first three reels of the collection contain a catalog of the collection by Ricardo Rojas. The collection was acquired from Argentina’s Centro de Estudios Hist́oricos e Informacíon Parque de Espãna.
