Very Good. Herbert Eugene Bolton was an American historian who pioneered the study of the Spanish-American borderlands and was a prominent authority on Spanish-American history. Bolton maintained that the history of the United States must be understood in the context of the histories of other American nations; Bolton argued that the history of the Americas is best understood by trying to understand the ways in which the different colonial and precolonial contexts have interacted to produce the modern United States. Bolton served as chair of the history department at the University of California, Berkeley for 22 years and is credited with making the Bancroft Library the dominant research center it is today. Included with this offprint is a typed letter signed dated September 24, 1932 from Henry Raup Wagner (1862-1957), another distinguished scholar of California and Spanish America. Wagner made important contributions to the understanding of the Sixteenth Century in America with his "The Spanish Southwest," "Spanish Voyages to the Northwest Coast of America," "Sir Francis Drake's Voyage Around the World," "The Cartography of the Northwest Coast of America," "Juan Rodrigues Cabrillo," "The Discovery of the Yucatan," "The Discovery of New Spain," and "The Rise of Fernando Cortes."
