This chapter discusses two major programs that developed between the Golden State and Chile during the Cold War era. One was the Chile California Program, an intercontinental initiative signed by President John F. Kennedy shortly before his 1963 assassination and subsidized by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The program focused on developing Chilean agriculture, education, water resources, highway transportation, and fiscal planning. The other program, known as the Convenio, was a formal academic agreement between the University of Chile and the University of California. The University of California at Los Angeles served as the Convenio's coordinating institution, arranging for student and faculty exchanges, facilitating shared course credits, and organizing mutual recognition of academic degrees from participating Chilean and Californian universities.
