Alumni Weekend in the Library


On June 1, Dorothy Tanck De Estrada of the class of 1963, a renowned scholar of Mexican history, attended her 50th class reunion at Trinity, returning to the campus from her current home in Mexico. As part of her visit, she donated four of her books to our library, which we’re thrilled to have!

Look for the following titles in our collection soon! Dr. de Estrada either wrote or contributed to each of them.

  • Independencia y educación: Cultura cívica, educación indígena y literatura infantil

  • Historia mínima ilustrada:  La educación en México

  • Fábulas mexicanas de José Ignacio Basurto

  • Derechos, tierras y visión del mundo de los pueblos indígenas en la cartografía e ilustraciones novohispanas del Siglo XVI al Siglo XVII
