Regarding Adrian Recinos Born in this House. Adrián Recinos (1886–1962) was a Guatemalan historian, essayist, Maya scholar and translator, and diplomat. Recinos was a great student of Guatemalan history, mainly of the Maya civilization and the ancient history of the K'iche' and Kaqchikel people. He made the first Spanish translation of the Popol Vuh, based on his translation of the manuscript found in the Newberry Library, Chicago. He also published translations of other ancient Mayan manuscripts, including the Anales de los Cakchiqueles.
