The reference "binder" is/was a loose-leaf binder which was discarded in 1996 by an unknown component of the County Manager's Office, Dade County, Florida containing a collection of documents from printed and official sources pertaining to Cuban exile organizations that may pose disruptive activities within the area. The "binder" carries no official logo, seal or other identifying information.  The latest item in the "binder" is dated 1993.

The "binder" contains 31 sections.  The original contents page was less than descriptive.  A better table of contents follows.


The binder contains excellent historical documentation although there are some sections which were written, by persons unknown, who had little insight into the Cuban revolution, the migration and the general history of Cuba and the Cuban community.  Sections 5 and 6 are poorly written.  The group categories are weak and incomplete.  In section 15, the photocopying was sloppy with pages chopped off with some words smeared while copied hastily.  Section 21, as well as other sections, has no references for the information presented.

There are a great many records which were produced by other agencies which are excellent. The OCB material is within this category. (OCB stands for Organized Crime Bureau and was the Intelligence Unit for the Dade County Public Safety Department {PSD}.  The OCB was formed in 1957 and continues today under a different title.)

The binder is out of date today but gives an historical perspective on what County government considered the roots of the Cuban community and the problems.  It shows how "out of touch" the County was with reality.
