About Hipólito Yrigoyen

  • Juan Hipólito del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús Yrigoyen (12 July 1852 – 3 July 1933) was an Argentine politician, important figure in the Radical Civic Union, and two-time President of Argentina who served his first term from 1916 to 1922 and his second term from 1928 to 1930.
  • He was the first president elected democratically by means of the secret and mandatory male suffrage established by the Sáenz Peña Law of 1912.
  • His activism was the prime impetus behind the passage of that law in Argentina. Known as "the father of the poor," Yrigoyen presided over a rise in the standard of living of Argentina's working class together with the passage of a number of progressive social reforms, including improvements in factory conditions, regulation of working hours, compulsory pensions, and the introduction of a universally accessible public education system.
