The PEN Club of Paraguay, founded in 1943, has a file on the inauguration, which contains the names of the 29 founders and the first governing board, as well as the statutes drafted in 1943. Subsequent documents are missing and others were burned in the fire at the president’s residence in the 1980s. Other archives are reduced to newspaper clippings dating from the 1960s. PEN Paraguay currently has 54 members.
