Graciela Nemes Papers
Graciela Palau de Nemes (1919 -- ), a well-known critic of the works of Juan Ramon Jimenez, began teaching at the University of Maryland 1953 and remained there until her retirement in 1989 as Professor Emerita in the Foreign Languages Department. Nemes received her master's degree (1949) and doctoral degree (1952) from Maryland, where Jimenez served as her unofficial mentor at the university. This collection documents Nemes' scholarly interest in Jimenez and primarily consists of books and poems by Jimenez and other Latin American authors, as well as monographs and periodicals about Jimenez. Other materials include brochures, pamphlets, teaching notes, and posters.
