I am a graduate student at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), History Department. I am writing about ECALAS, a committee created in 1973, after the Chilean coup d'etat.

The committee was established in October 1973 by the LASA's Executive Council, worked closely with the Consejo Latinoamericano de Ciencias Sociales (CLACSO), and had financial support from Ford Foundation. I have been looking for archival material and it hasn't been easy to find any. I am interested in any documentation related to this topic.

Is there anyone out there that could help me?
