Third Person Typed Letter signed: Colonel "Juan Peron" as Secretary of Labor and Social Welfare, 1 page, 6½X9¼. Buenos Aires, 1944 April 21. On imprinted letterhead to D. José Carro, informing him that his request has been transmitted to the Inspector of the National Lottery to see if the writer's wishes can be satisfied. JUAN PERÓN (1895-1974) was part of a military junta, which seized power in 1943 and made him Secretary of Labor and Social Welfare (in which capacity he has signed here). Secretary of Labor and Social Welfare might not seem like a very powerful post in a military junta, but Perón used the office to develop a strong personal following in the labor movement, and among less affluent Argentines. 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. Horizontal and vertical folds. Lightly soiled and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
