Edgardo Enriquez Frodden was a Chilean physician, academic and minister of education under the Salvador Allende government.

He married the lawyer Raquel Espinoza Townsend with whom he had four children: his youngest child Miguel Enriquez (1944 1974) followed him into the field of medicine and became the legendary revolutionary figure who founded the MIR and headed the resistance against the Pinochet dictatorship.

Enriquez Frodden (with his wife Raquel) spent the rest of their lives campaigning for the disappeared and denouncing the human rights abuses that were committed by the Pinochet regime. Two of his sons Miguel Enriquez, and Edgardo Enriquez along with his son in law Juan Bautista von Schouwen (all three leading members of the MIR) were assassinated in the first period of the Pinochet dictatorship.
