In the 1940 election in Mexico, General Manuel Avila Camacho defeated General JUAN ANDREW ALMAZÁN, a revolutionary soldier turned millionaire industrialist, in a disputed election which caused Almazán to flee to Cuba after making accusations of fraud. He eventually returned to Mexico and retired to private life. Creased. Folds, which are shaded touching text but not signature.
