Manuel Sadosky was an Argentine mathematician, born in Buenos Aires to Jewish Russian immigrants fleeing the pogroms. He is widely considered the father of computer science studies in Argentina.
Son of a shoemaker, Sadosky studied at the Mariano Acosta teachers school. Noted novelist Julio Cortazar was his classmate there, and remained a longtime friend.
Sadosky graduated as a Doctor in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Buenos Aires in 1940. He then moved to the Henri Poincare Institute in Paris to pursue postdoctoral studies on a scholarship granted by the French Government. After another year in Italy, he returned to Argentina, where he faced complicated employment options because of his opposition to the Peronist regime.
