Voices from the Past
Robert J. Torrez

New Mexico’s State Archives offer a rich collection of documents from the Spanish, Mexican and Territorial periods. Former State Historian Robert J. Torrez has mined this collection to bring four centuries of New Mexico history to life. This lecture will present stories of brave New Mexicans who settled a vast frontier and of the conflicts and accommodations between the peoples who came into contact with each other during the process.

This program is made possible by the New Mexico Humanities Council, which is supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the N.M. Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library. The program is free and open to the public.
