Biographical Note

Operation Pedro Pan Group, Inc. is the charitable organization founded in 1991 by the unaccompanied minors who came to the United States from Cuba from 1960-1962. Operation Pedro Pan was the largest migration of unaccompanied minors in history, totaling more than 14,000 children who immigrated to the United States under the auspices of the Catholic Welfare Bureau. Masterminded by Monsignor Bryan O. Walsh, James Baker with Cuban notables Ramon and Polita Grau among many others, they worked to secure visa waivers for the children to leave Cuba. Once in the United States, Monsignor Walsh organized the housing of those children with no family or friends to stay with, resulting in various notable Camps around the Miami Area, most notably Camp Matecumbe. Operation Pedro Pan Group, Inc.’s mission to repay the kindness shown to them motivates their continuing events and charities.
