Biographical Note

Jorge Mañach (1898-1961) was a Cuban lawyer, philosopher and writer. Mañach graduated from Harvard University in 1920 with a degree in philosophy and continued his studies in France and Cuba. While in exile during the 1930s, Mañach taught at Columbia University in New York City, until returning to Cuba in 1939. Upon his return to Cuba, he continued his teaching career at University of Havana, and was also creator and contributor to Universidad del Aire, a radio instruction program.

Mañach participated in revolutionary activities against the Fulgencio Batista government in the 1930s and was exiled at various points of his adult life to Spain and the United States for political reasons. In 1960, he was forced into exile to Puerto Rico because of his dissent of the government of Fidel Castro. He died in Puerto Rico in 1961. He was married to Margot Baños and had one son, Dr. Jorge Mañach-Baños.
