JUAN D. PERÓN (ARGENTINA)While exiled in Spain, the once and future Argentine President inscribes a small photo. Photograph inscribed and signed in Spanish, with English translation: "To Señor D. Kenneth E. Crouch with great affection/Juan Perón/Madrid, 15 November 1968". B/w, 4½x7 overall, image 4x5½ (one surface). JuanD. Perón (1895-1974) was part of a military junta, which seized power in 1943 and made him Secretary of Labor and Social Welfare. Promoted to Vice President and Minister of War in 1944 but purged by suspicious fellow officers in 1945, Perón was released after massive protests by the labor unions whose support he had cultivated. Perón was elected President in 1946, serving until overthrown in a military coup (1956). Peron ruled with authoritarian methods, but his program of nationalism and economic justice appealed to many of his countrymen. While Perón lived in exile in Spain, his Peronista movement remained a powerful force in Argentine politics. He once again served as President from 1973 until his death. His first wife, Maria Eva Duarte (1919-1952), affectionately called Evita, helped him as de facto Minister of Health and Labor, acquiring a mass following of her own. Infamously,Peron's government kept Nazi war criminals safe after WWII, protecting them from international leaders who wanted to try them for their horrific crimes. Creased. Paper clip impression at top edge, mounting remnant at upper left corner. Ink note on verso, unknown hand (no show-through). Otherwise, fine condition.
