Manuel Ugarte ( Argentina 1875 - 1951 France) was an Argentine author, writer and member of the Socialist Party.
Manuel Baldomero Ugarte was born in San Jose de Flores, now part of the City of Buenos Aires, on 27 February 1875. His father was Floro Ugarte and his mother Sabina Rivero. His only brother, Floro Meliton Ugarte, born 9 years later, was a music composer and director of the famous Colon Theatre in Buenos Aires.
Manuel Ugarte spent all his life fighting for the unity of Latin America. Among Argentines at the time, he was doing the most for the political unification of the Spanish American continent. His preaching (nationalist anti-imperialism and Hispanicism with socialist touches) was spread in the press throughout the Americas and Europe. He began his public life alongside Lugones, Payro, Gerchunoff, Galvez and Ingenieros. He founded La Revista Literaria, which, among others, published the works of Ruben Dario and Ricardo Jaimes Freyre.
