The Conde de Montemar project is a product of multiple units at the University of Illinois Library. Many people have been involved in this project in one way or another. This page and the list below, serve as an acknowledgement of their contribution and as a note of sincere appreciation. Although all contributors are important, a special appreciation goes to Silvia Escanilla Huertas who for nearly two years transcribed, encoded, researched, and wrote significant portions of this site, and worked closely with other Library units. Financial support to carry forward this project was provided by a grant from the Latin Americanist Research Resources Project (LARRP) at the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, for which we are deeply thankful.
