Acquired at intervals between 1958 and 2004, the Juan Domingo Perón papers in the Hoover Institution Archives consist primarily
of correspondence between Perón and his followers, conducted largely during the period of his exile in Madrid, Spain. Among
the correspondents are many of the major figures of the Peronist movement, including trade union leaders in Argentina and
exiled Peronist activists. The letters themselves contain detailed information about rivalries and intrigues among different
Peronist factions, and they record the efforts of Perón's lieutenants as they sought both to curry favor in the eyes of their
leader and to sustain the Peronist movement within Argentina. They also document the roles played by Isabel Perón and José
Lopez Rega in the last years of Juan Perón's life.
