History and profile[edit]

Sur was first published in 1931,[1][2] with the assistance of a multidisciplinary team of collaborators. Its founder and main backer was Victoria Ocampo,[2] and it was supported intellectually by the Spanish philosopher José Ortega y Gasset. Many of the earliest editions of Sur carry the colophon of Ortega's Revista de Occidente. Notable contributors and sometime editors included Jorge Luis Borges, H.A. Murena, Adolfo Bioy Casares and Borges' Spanish brother-in-law Guillermo de Torre.[3] The last issue was published in 1992.[1][4]
