Legacies of Imperialism: An Examination of U.S. Destabilization Efforts in Chile


U.S. imperialism in Chile


In 1973 Chile experienced a violent shift in power from the democratically elected socialist president Salvador Allende to a military dictatorship headed by General Augusto Pinochet. Following patterns of U.S. Cold War imperial efforts abroad The United States provided weapons and training to the military junta set to overthrow Allende. This collection highlights an interview with late president Salvador Allende, a glimpse of student led protest against U.S. imperialism in Latin America, and an article detailing a Chile-Texas exchange program that existed in the years prior to Pinochet’s reign. All archives presented here are a part of the "Guide to the Alice Embree Papers" collection in the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History. Alice Embree is a native Austinite and UT alumnae. While a student at the University of Texas she was involved in Students for a Democratic Society as well as a part of UT's exchange program with Chile. She was an influential activist at UT writing extensively against imperialism during and following the Vietnam War.
