Typed Letter signed: "Juan Perón" as President, 1 page, 6¾x8½. Buenos Aires,1949 April 21. To Dr. Stanley D. Tylman, Chicago. In Spanish, loosely translated. Perón states that he appreciates very much the greeting that Dr. Tylman and his wife sent on the occasion of the anniversary which most fervently recalls the Christian spirit of the [Argentine] people [probably Easter, which fell on April 17 in 1949], and gives Perón the opportunity to wish Tylman the best in his personal venture and to send him a big hug ("un gran abrazo"). JUAN 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. STANLEY D. TYLMAN (1893-1982), Professor of Dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago for over 40 years (1920-1962), was a renowned authority on crown and bridge prosthetics. His 1940 textbook on the subject is referred to as "Tylman's Bible." Tylman treated prominent dental patients worldwide, including President and Mrs. Perón. Lightly creased, staple holes. With soiled envelope. Two items.
