Andres Eloy Blanco

Andres Eloy Blanco Meano was an important Venezuelan poet, politician, member of the Generacion del 28, and one of the founders of Accion Democratica (AD).

Blanco spent his childhood in the state of Nueva Esparta (Margarita Island), until he moved to Caracas in 1908 to attend the National School. He graduated from the Central University of Venezuela with a law degree in 1918. In 1943, he married Lilina Iturbe, with whom had two sons, Luis Felipe and Andres Eloy Blanco Iturbe.

In 1973, the Venezuelan Congress issued a ten-volume edition of his complete works, five of which gathered his journalistic work, containing short chronicles and texts. His speeches were also contained in this edition. Andres Eloy Blanco was a great orator, perhaps the best of the Venezuelan XX century. His remains lay at the National Pantheon, since 2 July 1981.
