Aims and objectives
The aim of this project is to preserve the archives of a group of mutual aid societies in Santiago, Chile. These organisations were part of the first worker’s associations in Chile that provided social security (pensions and health insurance) before the advent of compulsory welfare programmes in the early 20th century. These societies are today in a precarious financial situation and, therefore, their archives, given their age and conditions, are endangered.
The records copied by this project have been catalogued as:
- EAP1283/1 Sociedad Mutualista Juan Miguel Dávila Baeza (Jan 1929-Feb 1936)
- EAP1283/2 Sociedad Mutualista Fermín Vivaceta (Dec 1883-Jul 1922)
- EAP1283/3 Sociedad Mutualista Igualdad y Trabajo (May 1894-Dec 1895)
- EAP1283/4 Sociedad Mutualista Empleados de Comercio (Aug 1887-Jun 1889)
