Name: Varona, Manuel Antonio "Tony" (1908-1992)


Historical Note: Tony Varona was a major figure, both in Cuba, and later in the Cuban exile community in the United States. He was a loyal supporter of President Carlos Prio and served as Prime Minister of Cuba from 1948-1950. When the Cuban Revolution began, he worked with Prio and the Central Intelligence Agency to instigate a counter-revolution, ultimately having to flee to Miami. He co-founded Movimiento de Recuperacion Revolucionario (MRR) and later headed Consejo Revolucionario Cuba, the Cuban government-in-exile. He was a notable anti-Castro leader in the United States.
