Emilio Cueto is a retired attorney who serves as an expert guide for Smithsonian Journeys tours in Cuba. A well known expert on Cuban culture, Cuban history and Cuban art, he collects memorabilia from his birthplace of Cuba.

Emilio came to the United States in 1961 as part of the Peter Pan Project shortly after Fidel Castro came into power. The federally funded project was executed mostly by the Catholic Church, and Cuban youth were allowed to enter the United States with their parents permission.

Mr. Cueto has returned many times to Cuba to learn about the culture from which he came. He has written a number of books in both English and Spanish about all things Cuban, and his collection of Cuban memorabilia, according to his articles in the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post, impresses visitors to his apartment.
