Biographical Note

Alberto Arredondo Gutiérrez was a journalist and economist born on August 28, 1912, in Havana, Cuba.

Arredondo owned a daily newspaper in Havana and was active in the study of Cuba’s economy, focusing especially on agriculture. He served as head of the Departamento de Economía Interna of the Consejo Nacional de Economía in 1958 and, later, as the Cuban delegate to the VII Inter-American Conference on Agriculture and the VI Conference of the Pan American Institute of Geography and History. He also served as an economic advisor to the Comisión de Fomento Nacional of Cuba and as the director of economic research for the Confederación de Trabajadores del Cuba (CTC).

Arredondo went into exile in 1960 and was a professor of agricultural economics at the Centro Interamericano de Estudios Económicos y Sociales (CIDES) in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, from 1963 to 1964. He later moved to Miami, where he remained active in several professional and political organizations. He also worked as a researcher for the Cuban Economics Research Project at the University of Miami.

Arredondo authored several conference papers, economic studies, and books. Some of his works include El Negro en Cuba (1939), Cuba, Tierra Indefensa (1945), and La historia secreta del comunismo cubano y sus purgas (1965).

Alberto Arredondo died in Miami on April 17, 1968.
