25 original documents, published during the visit of former president Porfirio Díaz Mori to Mérida in 1906, will be on display startng on Tuesday July 17 at the Yucatan Library.
José Miguel Rosado Pat, Head of the Department of Cultural Heritage of the State Secretariat of Culture and the Arts, said that this sample to be presented in summer is part of documents belonging to the Reserved Fund of the Yucatan Library and Crescencio Carrillo and Ancona.
He said that one of the objectives of this exhibition is to open spaces for teachers, students and researchers on the extensive and valuable documentation stored in these files.
He explained that the holiday season is an opportunity for students to visit these cultural spaces and learn more about the history and events that took place in our state more than a century ago.
Rosado Pat explained that the documents that are exhibited in this presentation are hemerographic, published, letters and documents and photographs of the time that were published after the visit of General President Porfirio Díaz Mori to Mérida in 1906.
During these events, the historical visit of General Díaz in the month of February of 1906 was documented.
For six days, the then president of the Republic fulfilled his fourth mandate at the head of the Mexican government and visited the Yucatan capital where he was received as a national hero, offering parties, feasts, dances and parades in his honor, both in the city of Merida, as in different Yucatecan haciendas.
The building of the Yucatan Library, in the Historic Center of the city, will host this exhibition, which will be held from July 17 to July 30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and access will be free.
Rosado Pat pointed out that once again, that the Yucatecan society has to learn a little more about its history, with information and documentation about transcendental facts and aspects of the social, political and cultural context that prevailed in Mérida during the first decade the last century.
All the documents that will be presented were made in Yucatan by writers, photographers, authors and journalists from Yucatan, which also makes reference to the different perspectives and visions that were held at that time about the presence of the Oaxacan politician. But also about the conditions that marked the development of the henequen industry in the power of a relatively small group of businessmen, whose lifestyle contrasted against the Yucatecan peasants and ejidatarios.
The exhibition also includes new works, specifically the book published by the historian Hector Victoria Ojeda, a broad expert on this period of history in Yucatan and who published his book providing information and detailed aspects of the socio-political conditions of our state in the last century.
