Hilario Fernandez Long


Hilario Fernandez Long was an Argentine structural engineer and educator.

Besides his teaching activities in several universities, he was the dean of the Engineering School and Rector (i.e. President) of the University of Buenos Aires. After Juan Carlos Ongania's coup d'etat in 1966, he resigned as the University autonomy was violated in the Noche de los Bastones Largos (Long Stick's Night) when the police entered by force in the campuses, beating students and professors, effectively ending the so-called "Golden Age" of the Buenos Aires University. His political commitment was reaffirmed when President Raul Alfonsin nominated him as a member of the CONADEP commission that investigated the fate of the desaparecidos.
