Francisco García Calderón's bound manuscript (1896) entitled "Replica al Alegato del Ecuador" and two preliminary drafts were
compiled between 1892 and 1896 to document the history of border disputes between Peru and Ecuador over the provinces of Mainas,
Jaen and Tumbes. Also included is a bound file (1876-1909) related to a contract between the Peruvian government and Nicolas
Federic Barbier and Tranquille Stanislas Fenestre, French citizens, for the construction of lighthouses along the Peruvian
coast. The collection is arranged in two series: 1) BORDER DISPUTES and 2) LIGHTHOUSE DISPUTE.
Francisco García Calderón was born in Arequipa, Peru, in 1834. After finishing a degree in law, he pursued a career in public
service and worked in the Ministerio de Hacienda, served as president of Arequipa's constitutional congress, and was a key
figure in the final peace accords between Peru and Chile.
