John Bedan is a graduate student in the UO Department of History. His CLLAS-supported research project, “The Price of Progress: Guatemala and the United States in the 1960s,” seeks to examine how the Guatemalan state transformed during the Alliance for Progress era. The research will explain how the idealism of the Alliance for Progress gave way to the realities of Cold War confrontation in Guatemala.
