Surprising new information on Pancho Villa comes to light in obscure Wells Fargo files at UC Berkeley


Berkeley - Documents recently acquired by The Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley, reveal new information on the one-time bandit and famed Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa.

The records indicate that at a critical point in Villa's career - when he had only a few men under his command but was soon to add thousands more to assemble the dreaded "Division of the North" - a hushed-up ransom payment secretly arranged by Wells Fargo Express bankrolled Villa's resurgence. The existence of the ransom payment was not previously known.
