Biographical Note

Rosa M. Abella was an exiled Cuban librarian who worked at the University of Miami Otto G. Richter Library.

A native of Havana, Abella received her library technician degree in 1955 and a doctor of philosophy in 1958. She served as the head of the circulation department for the National Library of Cuba from 1960 to 1961, at which point she left the island for Miami, Florida, as a political refugee. She worked as a librarian at Assumption Academy until she was hired as an acquisitions librarian for the Otto G. Richter Library in 1962, specializing in Spanish and Hispanic materials.

Abella was instrumental in the preservation of Cuban materials and the founding of the library's Cuban Heritage Collection.
