ABOUT EMILIO CUETO
Emilio Cueto is an expert in Cuban culture, especially colonial graphic art and music. He left Cuba at age 17, among the 14,000 children spirited out through Operation Peter Pan. Cueto was one of the first exiles to visit Cuba in the 1970s.
A retired attorney based in Washington D.C., Cueto previously worked for the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington, D.C.
As an avid seeker and guardian of Cuban memorabilia, he presently holds in his home one of the largest private collections in the world and a vast library of Cuban-related material, including, newspapers, maps, artworks, books, periodicals, LPs, videos, posters and more...
As Cueto has said: "If it's about Cuba it's here, it has to be here", adding, de todo como en botica, a Cuban phrase that means you can find a little bit of everything here, just like in a neighborhood drugstore. Cueto has written several books about Cuba, in both English and Spanish, he has also organized six concerts of Cuba-related music at Florida International University in Miami.
