Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Amalia Bacardí Collection contains documents and correspondence related to Sir Lambton Loraine, known for his involvement in the Cuban Insurrection against Spain (1868-1878).

The collection contains documents regarding Sir Lambton Loraine, commander of the H.M.S. Niobe, whose negotiations stopped the execution of Cuban revolutionaries involved in the Ten Years' War between Cuba and Spain (1868-1878). The Cuban captives were taken by the Spaniards from the American vessel Virginius to Santiago de Cuba in November 1873.

The collection also contains photostatic copies of reports received from Loraine relative to the action taken in connection with the protection of the Virginius captives; these documents were presented to Emilio Bacardí Moreau by the Lords Comissioners of the Admiralty. The collection also includes a menu for a 1922 banquet inaugurating the bust of Commander Loraine; Emilio Bacardí Moreau's invitation to said banquet; and correspondence and photographs from Mr. Ernest P.V. Brice, British Consul, to Mrs. Elvira Cape Viuda de Bacardí.
