The document described above is apparently a type of visa or exit permit from Guatemala. It is signed by the General Administrator Don Domingo Modiano B. and names the bearer, Juan Antonio Franco of Zacapa. The permit allows him to travel to Spain for the purpose of delivering 5 containers of ink.
Much of the collection consists of photographs depicting structures at Uxmal and Chichen Itza. Also included are photographs of T. Dale Stewart and his family, excavations, and modern buildings. There are also lists of captions for a 1949 trip to Peru, though the photographs are not included in the collection.
