Photograph signed: "Galo Plaza/1975" in black ink. 8x10. Galo Lincoln Plaza Lasso de la Vega (1906-1987) was an Ecuadorian politician and statesman. He is the son of former Ecuadorian President Leonidas Plaza. In 1938, Plaza was appointed the Minister of War of Ecuador. In 1940, he founded the Colegio Americano de Quito. In 1944, he was appointed as Ecuador's Ambassador to the U.S. In 1948, after forming a liberal political group in Ecuador, he was elected President of Ecuador. Galo Plaza's most important contribution to Ecuadorian political culture was his commitment to the principles and practices of democracy. Galo Plaza endorsed such democratic guarantees as freedom of the press and the freedom of opponents to voice their opinions, to assemble for political purposes without fear of being jailed or worse, and to be elected to the legislature without fear of being defrauded or arbitrarily dismissed. Unable to succeed himself, he left his office in 1952 as the first president in 28 years to complete his term in office. Corners slightly rounded. Paperclip indentation in upper left margin. Rust stains on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
