Publications of Vicente Quesada (1830-1913) and Ernesto Quesada (1858-1934)

This collection contains the publications of two outstanding characters of Argentinian political and cultural life. Vicente Gregorio Quesada (1830-1913) was a member of the national Parliament and Minister of the government in the province of Buenos Aires; a diplomat; as well as director of the National Library and initiator of editorial projects. His son Ernesto (1858-1934) was a lawyer, historian and social scientist, held important academic positions and is today known as one of the founders of the social sciences in Argentina. Both were united by a strong interest in the social and political development of their country, contributed actively to its scientific and cultural institutions and published important papers. In 1927 Ernesto Quesada donated the private library he and his father had built over decades (82.000 volumes) to the then Prussian State.

This donation laid the groundwork for the foundation of the Ibero-American Institute (IAI) in 1930 in Berlin. After his death, the institute also received a collection of manuscripts, correspondence and personal documents which are kept today in his bequest at IAI.
