Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection consists of approximately 350 photographs of Mexican revolutionary and President Venustiano Carranza, including depictions of Carranza on national tours and in areas being attacked by Revolutionaries during his time as Mexico's president (1917-20). Photographs in the collection also include portraits of Carranza and other prominent Mexican figures, including Isidro Fabela and Álvaro Obregón.
Venustiano Carranza Garza was born in 1859 in Cuatro Ciénegas, Coahuila, Mexico, to a wealthy cattle-ranching family. He attended good schools and used his wealth to rise in the political scene, where he gave his support to Francisco Madero's revolution in 1910 and became Madero's Minister of War in 1911. Carranza returned later that year to Coahuila, where he was elected governor and implemented a wide array of judicial, labor and tax reforms.
