At the Bancroft, a rare Mexico exhibit

Thursday, September 2, 2010

image For aficionados of Mexican history, an exhibit opening today at UC Berkeley’s Bancroft Library offers rarely-seen items from the library’s renowned Mexican history archives. (Among them, a rare 1916 Pancho Villa “wanted” poster.) “Celebrating Mexico,” which runs through Jan. 14, is unusual in another way: It’s a first-ever collaboration with Stanford, whose parallel Mexican history exhibit opens Sept. 20 at the Cecil H. Green Library. UC press release has details.
