Who was the Honorable Luis Muñoz Marín?
José Luis Alberto Muñoz Marín, (February 18, 1898 – April 30, 1980), regarded as the “father of modern Puerto Rico,” was a poet, journalist and politician.
He was the first democratically elected Governor of Puerto Rico. He worked with the U.S. Congress towards the creation of a Constitution, which was a key element to change the status of Puerto Rico to Estado Libre Asociado or “commonwealth.” He was re-elected three times, serving a total of sixteen years as Governor.
