Mexican politician and a revolutionary during the Mexican Revolution, who helped co-found the Partido Liberal ("Liberal Party") and the Casa del Obrero Mundial (House of the World Worker).
He was also the secretary and vice president of the Liberal Club Ponciano Arriaga (named after the 19th century lawyer) and was imprisoned by the regime of Porfirio Díaz for his activities, and later forced into exile in United States. While there he published a liberal newspaper in El Paso, Social Reform with an editorial agenda which opposed the Diaz dictatorship.
He died in Mexico City on 14 March 1967, aged 87; one of the few major figures of the Mexican Revolution to have died a natural death.
