Appendix 2 Sources
This study has been crafted from many sources. Apart from the censuses, the
electoral results, public opinion polls, the interviews conducted by media
sources, and some documents of a personal nature, such as private diaries or
correspondence, two other types of materials inform the analysis that I con-
duct in this study: interviews and cultural goods. See the introduction re-
garding the former. Regarding the latter, I considered those directed to (and
consumed by) middle- class sectors. I focused on those that had the largest
audience and had the greatest impact on public opinion. In terms of politi-
cal information, I worked primarily with the daily La Capital for Correa, La
Gaceta for Tucumán, and political analysis magazines from the metropolitan
area (Panorama, Análisis, Confirmado, Primera Plana, Extra, El Burgués, Carta Política,
and Cuestionario) also consumed in the rest of the country.1 I also consulted
other sources, such as the dailies Noticias and El Pueblo in Tucumán; the news-
papers Clarín, La Nación,2 La Razón, La Opinión,3 and La Prensa in Buenos Aires;
two Correa publications, La Voz de Correa and El Sentir del Pueblo, and one from
Cañada de Gómez, La Estrella. I placed great importance on general interest
magazines that combined information about the entertainment world with
political articles.4 Gente stands out among this type of magazine, as it had
widespread readership and a national scope.5 With regard to magazines di-
rected toward a male readership: I analyzed the sports magazines El Gráfico
and Corsa, and Autoclub—a magazine published by the Argentine Automo-
bile Club (Automóvil Club Argentino).6 Of those oriented toward women,
I worked with Para Ti, the oldest of this genre, and Claudia, targeted toward
upper- middle-class women.7 Of the humor magazines, I considered Satiricón,
Tío Landrú, and Humor, as well as the books of the most important humorists
of this period.8
