Rick Hendricks and Dr. Claude Fouillade, a retired French professor at New Mexico State University, have been working on a project to translate and edit a selection of Jean-Baptiste Lamy’s letters.
Lamy wrote in French, Spanish, English, and Latin over the course of his career. Reading the letters in their entirety gives a new understanding of Lamy’s life and times. The letters also present a different view of certain events than one gets from reading Paul Horgan’s Lamy of Santa Fe, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1976. In this talk, Rick will show how Horgan used Lamy’s correspondence to construct his narrative history.
Rick Hendricks is the New Mexico State Records Administrator.

After the conclusion of the Vargas Project, he worked at New Mexico State University on the Durango Cathedral Microfilming Project and taught courses in colonial Latin America and Mexican history. He has written extensively on the history of the American Southwest and Mexico.
