Hardcover xl - from a library, clean, normal library wear and markings Emilio Bacardi Moreau (1844-1922) was a Cuban industrialist, politician, and writer who managed the Bacardi Rum Company and served as mayor of Santiago. Emilio was the son of Facundo Bacardi and his wife Amalia Moreau. His father was a businessman who in 1862 founded the Bacardi distilling company that would grow into today's international corporation. However, before finding stability in the rum business, Facundo and his young family experienced some of tragedies of the day. For instance, in 1852 a major earthquake struck Santiago and the family briefly returned to Spain to escape the ensuing epidemics of cholera (epidemics which claimed some of Emilio's siblings). Upon his return, Facundo found that the general store he had been running was looted and its customers had fled. Within a few years he was bankrupt. In some ways, Emilio was protected from the turbulence by distance: the family's return to Cuba was completed without him, who stayed behind with a family friend in Spain. He received instruction in literary and political topics and grew to appreciate the arts and the liberal politics of the day (including abolition of slavery, criticism of organized religion, nationalism, and democracy). By the time he returned to Cuba at the age of 17, his interests lay more in political and poetic activism than business. However, as the first-born son of his father, he was given a growing and important role in the fledgling company. Throughout the 1870s, 80's, and 90's, Emilio's dual identity as business magnate and subversive political activist grew. The rum business continued to grow under his leadership, which was made official in 1877 when Don Facundo retired and named him president of the company. At the same time, Emilio became more and more involved in Cuba's nationalistic resistance to the Spanish Empire. He was repeatedly arrested and imprisoned on suspicion of helping the rebels. These suspicions were well founded, as Emilio used his respectable business activities and connections as a cover for developing a financial network which channelled resources to the rebel guerilla army Eusebio Delfín Figueroa (Palmira, 1 April 1893 - Havana, 28 April 1965) was a Cuban trovador musician: a composer, guitarist and singer. He came from a prominent family but with many economical problems, and was trained as an accountant in Cienfuegos, where his family had moved. He also studied guitar and song, and sang in public for the first time in 1916 at the Terry Theatre in Cienfuegos. lfín became Director of the Banco Comercial, and married Amalia Bacardi y Cape, a daughter of Emilio Bacardí, the rum magnate, author and an ex-mayor of Santiago de Cuba.
