Recuerdo de B. Traven - La Jornada - The remembrance of B. Traven by Gabriel Figueroa, in Spanish. Contains a photo of the 1946 trip Esperanza and Henry Schnautz took to San Andres Tuxtla, They also quote from Judy Stone's book word for word without attribution, although probably inadvertently (from Gabriel Figueroa's lecture notes).

Pfemfert, Franz aka Und Gaday 1879-1954 - Henry Schnautz was a friend of Franz Pfemfert in Mexico. Franz Pfemfert probably knew Ret Marut in Germany. Their biographies were very similar. See the good article by James Goldwasser, the Early B. Traven, above. When Pfemfert got to Mexico he got in contact with Natalia Trotsky and opened a photo studio. Henry helped him build it and took Esperanza there.

La Quinta Columna - Columnistas - Personajes by Alfonso Diez - old 2008 columns written by a man in Mexico City which talk about the parentage of Adolfo Lopez Mateos, and to some extent of Esperanza Lopez Mateos. I wrote Senor Diez and started a brief conversation when I first started the website and knew nothing. He concluded, prematurely I think, that the letters I had from Esperanza were not genuine. In his defense he had only seen a couple.
