Opening Hours On Prof. Woodrow Wilson Borah

Prof. Borah studied Latin American History at the University of California, Berkeley. He became a leading scholar in the field of Colonial Latin America, and was known for his innovative research on the historical demography of Colonial Mexico. His close association, for a period of about twenty years, with his colleague, Berkeley physiologist, Sherburne B. Cook, yielded an ambitious reconstruction of the demographic history of Central Mexico of the pre- and post-conquest era.
