Miguel Juárez Celman

Juárez Celman, Miguel (mēgĕlˈ hwäˈrās sĕlˈmän) [key], 1844–1909, president of Argentina (1886–90). After political service in the province of Córdoba, he became president for a six-year term. Speculation, flagrant under his predecessor Julio A. Roca, now reached its height, and the administration was notorious for corruption. Political opposition to his government increased after he left his party. A revolt in July, 1890, was suppressed, but Juárez Celman was forced to resign (Aug., 1890). He was succeeded by Carlos Pellegrini.
