Guatemala: In Words and Images exhibits materials from The Guatemala Collection: Government and Church Documents for Sacatepéquez: 1587-1991, and is the culmination of four years of work by USM students Chriss Sutherland and Lucas Desmond who were responsible for arranging and describing the collection. Some of the documents from this collection informed the new publication Distilling the Influence of Alcohol, edited by David Carey Jr., USM Professor of History and CAHS Associate Dean.

The Guatemala Collection: Government and Church Documents for Sacatepéquez: 1587-1991.

This collection spans an extensive historical period and comprehensively represents the demographic, social, and political reality of one of Guatemala’s most important departments. By providing evidence of the colonial and neocolonial structures of the Guatemalan government and Catholic Church, this collection shines a historic light on the present situation in Sacatepéquez and Guatemala more broadly. Guatemalan scholar and activist Christopher Lutz and two native Guatemalan archivists Eddy Gaytán and Héctor Concohá Ch’et assembled the collection throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s. The materials are photocopies of original documents from the Archivo General de Centro América, the Archivo Histórico Arquidiocesano Francisco de Paula García Pelaez, both located in Guatemala City, and the Archivo General de Indias in Seville, Spain.

Distilling the Influence of Alcohol: Aguardiente in Guatemalan History.

book cover Distilling the Influence of AlcoholSugar, coffee, corn, and chocolate have long dominated the study of Central American commerce, so much so that researchers tend to overlook one other equally significant commodity: alcohol. Often illicitly produced and consumed, aguardiente (distilled sugar cane spirits or rum) was central to Guatemalan daily life. Alcohol helped build family livelihoods, boost local economies, and forge the nation. It also shaped Guatemala's turbulent categories of ethnicity, race, class, and gender. Drawing from archival documents, oral histories, and ethnographic sources, the contributors to this volume investigate aguardiente's role from the colonial era to the twentieth century. Topics include women in the alcohol trade, taverns as places of social unrest, and tension between Maya and State authorities. By tracing Guatemala's past, people, and national development through the channel of an alcoholic beverage, Distilling the Influence of Alcohol opens new directions for Central American historical and anthropological research.

Randy Pierce & Quinn

                       Randy Pierce and his guide “Quinn” climb Mount Monroe

The USM Office of Support for Students with Disabilities and The Maine Region of Guiding Eyes for the Blind invite you to an evening of adventure and inspiration as Randy and Quinn tell their tale of triumph!

“I didn’t plan to go blind; I didn’t plan to go into a wheelchair. But none of that is what defines my life, because we have full power to choose how we respond. The only thing a blind person can’t do is see.” Randy Pierce.

The White Mountain National Forest is home to 48 peaks over 4,000 feet in elevation. With heights ranging from 4003' to 6288', these craggy summits are known for their steep, rocky terrain and impressive views. Hiking in the White Mountains can be a daunting task for the heartiest among us but Randy Pierce doesn’t see a thing. Following the silent cues from his yellow lab, “The Mighty Quinn,” and feeling, listening, and visualizing the trails, he became the first blind person to climb all 48 of the 4,000 foot peaks in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.

Randy Pierce grew up fully sighted, but at age 22, within the span of two weeks, he lost all the vision in his right eye, and half in his left. For several years, he endured tunnel vision, the dark closing in from the edges. In September 2000, he went totally blind. It was at this time that Randy was given a life altering gift. “Ostend,” a handsome golden retriever from Guiding Eyes for the Blind opened up a whole new, independent world to Randy.  In 2003 the neurological disorder that claimed his vision, incapacitated Randy and he was in a wheel chair for almost two years.   Tragically at this time, Ostend died of cancer. Randy did not give up. He received the gift of Quinn from Guiding Eyes, a magnificent yellow Labrador retriever.   Quinn was especially chosen and trained to assist Randy as both a guide for mobility and sight.  Randy's perseverance and motivation along with the dedication and support of friends and professionals helped him to walk and run and to find a new passion in hiking.

Randy's overwhelming gratitude, led him to found 2020 VISION QUEST.

The evening with Randy Pierce and the “Mighty” Quinn is generously sponsored by:

Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!
