Miguel Almereyda
Original name: Eugene Bonaventure De Vigo
Birth: Jan. 5, 1883

Death: Aug. 13, 1917

Journalist, Social Radical. He was the founder and editor of the radical weekly journal "La Guerre Sociale"(1906 to 1913) and the socialist daily "Le Bonnet Rouge"(1913 to 1917), he made many enemies in the French government during World War I. On August 6, 1917, Almereyda was arrested for treason, allegedly for receiving funds from Germany in exchange for taking an anti-war position in his newspaper. One week later he was found dead in his jail cell, strangled with his own shoelaces. Authorities ruled his death a suicide but many believe it was a political assassination. Almereyda's controversial life and mysterious demise had a profound influence on his son, film director Jean Vigo, who is buried with him. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
