Deena Stryker Photographs of Cuba

Deena Stryker Photographs of Cuba, 1963-1964 and undated
This digital collection from Duke University Libraries includes more than 1800 photographs. The journalist, then known as Deena Boyer, interviewed and photographed Fidel Castro, Raúl Castro, and other major figures in the Cuban Revolution (e.g., Celia Sánchez Manduley) during her second visit to Cuba. Although "Women" is not a subject heading in the records for these photographs, searches for the following terms will retrieve relevant records: Ana Betancourt students, Carnaval, cousins, mother, teachers, woman, and women. Researchers can also find photographs of specific women: Edith Gombos, Celia Sánchez Manduley, and Palma Soriano.

Karen Glynn, Visual Materials Archivist at Duke University, provides an overview of the collection in the latest edition of VIEWS: The Newsletter of the Visual Materials Section of the Society of American Archivists.
