This small collection contains handwritten and typed manuscripts of Stephen Fredman's translation and adaptation of the play,
San Diego de Alcalá, by the prolific Spanish baroque playwright and poet, Lope de Vega (1562-1635). The little-known play's American premiere,
about the patron saint of Mission San Diego, was part of the University of California, San Diego's contribution to the bicentennial
activities of Fronteras 1976 (a trans-border study group), in addition to a symposium (October - 1976) on the Spanish colonization
of California. Included in the collection is a small amount of correspondence regarding the project.
