A year after the death of what is considered the greatest historian of the Portuguese expansion abroad, the Foundation gave the East printed the work Charles R. Boxer - An Uncommon Life. Prof. Dauril Alden unveils the unusual personality of the historian, soldier, teacher, collector, and traveler who has built since the 30s to the 80s of the twentieth century, a unique work: 355 books and articles, a library of rare books (printed and manuscripts) and hundreds of letters, the result of correspondence with researchers from around the world. Committed to making known the whole work of Boxer, the Orient Foundation in 1989 began publishing them in Portuguese. The five volumes published until 1993 were added in 2001, three more volumes of a total of 15 designated Opera Minora and bringing together the scattered work of the historian.
