As President of Argentina, he forwards a secret document.
Document signed: "Perón" as President, 1 page, 8¾x12½. Buenos Aires, 1947 October 7. On National Executive Power letterhead, with ink stamp "Secret" at top margin. Also signed [Col.] "Roberto Sosa Molina". In Spanish, loosely translated. Having been presented with a secret document (#132/47) proposed by the Minister of War, Perón decrees the following: 1) He designates Sergeant Coronel D. Gunther Maria Arturo Kuttnig, Head of the 4th Division of the General Personnel Department to implement the document; 2) To communicate this decision through the military bulletin to assist in completing this order. 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. File holes at left. Creased at lower margin. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
