Eusebio Guiteras y Font
Birth: Mar. 5, 1823, Cuba
Death: Dec. 24, 1893
Philadelphia
Philadelphia County
Pennsylvania, USA

Poet, Author. Founded the Lyceum of Matanzas, the principal literary center of that city. His books include "Lectura Graduada," "Gramatica y Religion," "Un Invierno en New York," and "Romance Cubano." After he returned to Cuba in 1850, he became headmaster of La Empresa School in Matanzas. Eusebio was arrested for being a conspirator in the Cuban independence movement and left for political exile in Boston on May 28, 1853. The family moved to Philadelphia the following year. They returned to Matanzas in 1858 after a general amnesty, and Eusebio went back to being headmaster of La Empresa School for the next decade. The Cuban Ten Years' War for Independence forced the Guiteras family into exile again after La Empresa was closed for political reasons in 1869 by the Spanish colonial government. The Guiteras family resided in Philadelphia, where Eusebio and his brothers Antonio, Pedro Jose and Ramon, actively participated in the Cuban separatist cause. Eusebio wrote school books until his death in Philadelphia in 1893. (bio by: Antonio de la Cova)
