Happy Birthday to Martin Luis Guzman

The inspired life of writer, journalist, and politician Martin Luis Guzman began in Chihuahua, Mexico, on October 6, 1887.  Guzman’s literary works centered on the Mexican Revolution of 1910, which he supported and advanced.  His most famous novel, “El Aguila y la Serpient” (“The Eagle and the Serpent”) is a classic memoir of his experience of the revolution.  His portrait of Pancho Villa’s revolutionary leadership in “Memorias de Pancho Villa” was critically acclaimed as well.  Guzman returned to politics later in life, as Mexico’s ambassador to the United Nations in 1951.
