Jose Figueroa Alcorta


Jose Figueroa Alcorta was President of Argentina from 12 March 1906 to 12 October 1910.

Figueroa Alcorta was born in Cordoba as the son of Jose Figueroa and Teodosia Alcorta. He was elected a National Deputy for Cordoba before becoming Governor of the province in 1895. In 1898 he returned to the Argentine Congress as a Senator. In 1904 he became Vice-President of Argentina and in 1906 succeeded Manuel Quintana as President.

He is the only Argentinian President to date to have held office in - and presided - the three powers of democratic government: Legislative, as Deputy (1892) and Senator (1898); Executive, as President (1906); and Judiciary, as Justice of the Supreme Court (1915) and then President of the same (1929).
