This is a selection of books and magazines from the Puerto Rican Collection, formerly known as the Géigel Family Collection or Géigel Collection, that have been digitized. The originals are housed in the UConn Libraries' Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. This collection was created and maintain by the Géigel Family from Puerto Rico for 3 generations. The collection was started by José (Pepe) Géigel Zenón, a reporter and well known Puerto Rican intellectual, a relative of the writer Manuel Zenón Gandía and personal friend of the writer Alejandro Tapia y Rivera, among many others. His son, Fernando Géigel, continued building up the collection, and later on by Luisa Géigel, grandaughter of José and daughter of Fernando Géigel. UConn in the 1980s acquired this collection from Luisa Géigel, who had organized and maintaned it for many years, with the help of historian Francisco Scarano, who worked at the university at the time.
