Jose Napoleon Duarte
Birth: Nov. 23, 1925
Death: Feb. 23, 1990

El Salvadorian President. A Christian Democrat, he was mayor of San Salvador (196470). In 1972, Duarte was elected president, but was exiled by the army. He was allowed to return (1979), and in 1980 was named to the ruling military junta, which later named him president. He was forced from office (1982) when the government turned to the far right. With strong U.S. backing, he became president again (1984), but failed in his promises to achieve land reform, stem death squad activity, and negotiate with the leftist rebels. He died of cancer shortly after leaving office. (bio by: Erik Lander)
