José María Pino Suárez

Sep 8, 1869 - Feb 22, 1913

José María Pino Suárez was a Mexican statesman, lawyer, writer and newspaper proprietor who served as the seventh and last Vice President of Mexico from 1911 until his assassination in 1913, during the events of the Ten Tragic Days, one of the most violent periods of the Mexican Revolution.
He was born in Tenosique, Tabasco "almost by accident", since his family was among the most notable of Mérida, Yucatán; he was the great-grandson of Pedro Sáinz de Baranda, the founder of the Mexican Navy and a former Governor of Yucatán. At a very young age, Pino moved to Mérida to study under the Jesuits, later obtaining a Law degree from Instituto Literario de Yucatán in 1894. Two years later he married María Cámara Vales, a scion of the Cámara family, one of the most conspicuous of the Yucatecan aristocracy.
After his marriage, Pino practiced law both in Mérida and in Mexico City and also participated in several business ventures with his father in law, Raymundo Cámara Luján, a wealthy hacienda owner. By 1904, with the financial backing of the Cámara family, he ventured into journalism, becoming a newspaper proprietor after founding El Peninsular, an evening daily.
