He and 13 other colonels and generals sign their names to a list of officers "not eligible for promotion in 1943." Perón found a less conventional means of getting "promoted" later that year: by overthrowing the government.
Document signed: "Juan Perón", 1 page, 8¾x12½. No place, circa 1943. In Spanish. A list of military officers not eligible for promotion in 1943. Peron's name appears at bottom of the left column of a list of 14 officers (6 generals and 8 colonels). Typed caption below Peron's signature: "Juan Domingo Perón/Coronel/Jefe Sec.M.G.". The other signers are generals Julio Sarmiento, Ernesto Florit, Manuel Savio, Pablo Davila, Baldomero Jose de Biedma and Alberto Guglielmone; and colonels Jose Suarez, Jose Humberto Sosa Molina, Roque Antonio Lanus, Carlos Kelso, Angel Solari, Julio Checchi and Isidro Martini. Peron (1895-1974) would receive a different kind of "promotion" in June 1943 as part of a military junta, which seized power and made Peron secretary of labor and social welfare. Promoted to Vice President in 1944 but purged by suspicious fellow officers in 1945, Peron was released after massive protests by the labor unions whose support he had cultivated. Juan 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. Staple holes in blank left margin. Lightly creased and soiled. Official stamps of the Ministry of War near top. Otherwise, fine condition.
