Marechal Juarez Távora (1898-1975) was one of Brazil's most popular military and political figures from 1922-1967. The collection contains Dr. Ann Tiller's research and collection of documents, letters and related materials that provide particular insight into Távora's actions, thoughts and opinions on Brazil's Tenente Revolt, the Aliança Liberal and the 1930 Brazilian Revolution, the early administration of Getúlio Vargas, the 1955 Presidential campaign and the military coup in 1964. Tiller's research was being used for a political biography on Távora, which was never completed due to her untimely death in 1981. Some specific items of interest include a twenty-six page autobiography Távora wrote in 1955, a comic book portrayal of his life from 1955, and a letter written in March 1975 where he outlines his chief actions and attitudes between 1922 and 1967.
