Biographical Note

Very little is known of Mr. Barnette and even less is known with certainty. Robert E. McNicoll, Ph.D, former professor of Hispanic-American History at the University of Miami wrote the forewords for the two book-length manuscripts in this collection. Dr. McNicoll believes that Mr. Barnette lived in Miami, Florida for a period of about one year prior to World War II.
