Scope and Contents Note

Postcards (1921-1928) document publishing activities primarily of the Hispanic Society of America. Showing significant landmarks and sense of everyday life, the postcards visually document life in several Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries during the early twentieth century. The postcards are arranged into twelve series based on individual countries. Each series is divided into numerous subseries regarding geographical entities such as cities or lakes. Item-level description presents the narrative title or label printed on each postcard. The first nine series contain unused postcards produced by the Hispanic Society of America (1928).

The last three series are general postcards by unknown publishers donated by Pearl Cashell Jackson. The Miscellaneous postcards and those from Mexico are ones that were actually mailed, and contain brief correspondence.


Arrangement

Postcards are arranged alphabetically by geographic region. Within each geographic unit the postcards are arranged according to the Item No. given by the Hispanic Society of America (e.g. H-123).
