New Facility in Cuba for Hemingway Papers

The Boston-based Finca Vigia Foundation will ship nearly $900,000 in supplies to build a state-of-the-art facility to preserve Ernest Hemingway’s books, letters and photos — the first major export of construction materials to Cuba since President Obama loosened the trade embargo on the island.
The building materials will be used to construct a 2,400-square-foot, two-story laboratory where thousands of photos, roughly 9,000 books and a huge number of letters to and from Hemingway can be treated and preserved.
TV home improvement expert Bob Vila, a Finca Vigia Foundation board member who is Cuban-American and speaks fluent Spanish, will help oversee the project.
