Description
Peruvian writer and editor, active in the literary and artistic avant-garde in Peru and Mexico. Letters, manuscripts, drawings, clippings, and ephemera document the work of Westphalen and the surrealist Peruvian poet César Moro (1903-1956). Many files relate to Las Moradas (1947-1949) and Amaru (1967-1971), journals published by Westphalen.

He began the journal Las Moradas in 1947, publishing poets and writers, artists, and articles on politics, philosophy and anthropology. He published the work of Spanish writers in exile, as well as Americans, and Europeans.
