Biographical Note

Born in Havana, María Luisa Guerrero received a doctoral degree from the University of Havana. Guerrero taught at several schools in the Havana area, including Ceiba del Agua in Rancho Boyeros and Jose Marti in Maríanao. In the 1930s, she served on the Board of Directors of the Lyceum and Lawn Tennis Club, a women’s organization dedicated to the promotion of Cuban culture and the role of women in the intellectual development of Cuba. During this time she also met Elena Mederos with whom she undertook many projects focusing on social welfare issues.

Guerrero was active in several political groups. She served on the Executive Committee of the Movimiento de Resistencia Civica (Civic Resistance Movement) and joined the Movimiento Revolucionario del Pueblo (People’s Revolutionary Movement) upon its foundation in 1959 and was a member of its National Executive Committee through 1961, when she left Cuba as an exile. In the United States, María Luisa worked in UNICEF with Elena Mederos, and in 1967, she returned to teaching as a Spanish professor and head of the Language Department in Paul VI Regional High School, Clifton, New Jersey.
