Document signed: "Perón" as Minister of War , 1 page, 8½x11½. Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1945 March 22. In Spanish. The Ministry of War finds no grounds for the appeal by Lieutenant Francisco Gomez of a decision not to promote him. Also signed on verso by Brigadier General Pedro B. Abadie Acuña, the Ministry's Director General of Personnel, and initialed by several military officials. 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 Peron lived in exile, 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. Lightly soiled. Small holes along blank left margin. Several official stamps and notations. Vertical and horizontal folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
