TLS: "Juan Perón" as President of Argentina, 1 page, 6½x7½. Buenos Aires, 1953 June 15. On imprinted Presidential letterhead to Ernesto R. Piaggio. In Spanish, translated. In full: "General Juan Perón Attentively salutes Charge d'affaires for Business of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, Mr. Ernesto R. Piaggio, [and] hereby conveys his appreciation for the condolences transmitted in his expressive telegram of date first [June] 1." Thin black line diagonally across upper left corner indicates mourning. In this letter, Argentina's President, Juan Perón (1895-1974) thanks Ernesto R. Piaggio, commercial charge d'affaires for Uruguay, for sending a telegram of condolences. Peron's wife, Eva, had died on July 26, 1952, less than a year prior to this telegram. Perón, who came to power from a career as an army officer, was part of the military coup d'etat that overthrew Argentina's government in 1943. He accepted the post of Secretary of Labor and Social Welfare and began to implement reforms. Perón became Vice-President and Minister of War in 1945, and he was elected President with 54% of the popular vote in February 1946. During his administration (1946-1955), Perón sought to establish Argentina's political and ideological hegemony over South America.Reelected in 1973, Perón faced growing unrest before his death on July 1, 1974. He was succeeded by his wife, Isabel, a former nightclub singer whom he had married in 1961 (she was disposed in a military coup in 1976). Lightly creased with mid-horizontal fold, not at signature. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 27x20.
