Short biographies of prominent deceased Cubans. Sketches vary from several lines to several pages and lack bibliographic references beyond the subject's own publications.  

 

Vols. 1-11 were a re-issue (1951-60), in mimeographed form, of a collection of Cuban biographies which originally appeared in {i}El mundo{/i} (Havana). Because information files for the project were destroyed after the Communist takeover in Cuba, the original scheme of the publication had to be abandoned. Contents: v. 1-7, Abad-Z; v. 8-11, A-Iz; Vol. 12 offers a new series of biographies in alphabetical sequence, A-L, plus a general index to v. 1-12; v. 13-14 each presents new biographies in a complete alphabet. Index to Volumes 1-7 appeared in the Cuban Genealogical Society's {i} Revista{/i}  (vol. 2, no. 2 (April, 1989)).

A companion work,  {i} Personalidades cubanas{/i}, gives brief sketches of living persons. Vol. 10 includes a general alphabetical index to the series. Vols. 1-7 are reprints of volumes publ. in Havana by Ediciones Anuario Biobibliográfico Cubana, 1957-59; v. 8-10 have subtitle {i}Cuba en el exilio{/i}.
