Herberto Dumé (1929-2003) directed the Teatro Nacional de Cuba from 1959 until he left the island in exile. In New York, he founded the Dumé Spanish Theater in 1969. Dumé is best known for his theatrical direction and one-man poetry recitals. The Dumé Papers document Dume's work, primarily during his years in exile from Cuba, and include the scripts of plays that he directed along with photographs, clippings, programs, and reviews and records related to the Dumé Spanish Theater.
