First Govenor of Alta California while under Mexican rule and the only one under the Mexican empire. Don Luis Antonio Arguello was a member of a large and influential family and was govenor of California from November 1822 until November 1825. Arguello had been a military Captain under the Spanish government. He was also the first native Californian called to serve in this capacity. He had gained some notability because of an exploring expedition into the unknown northern parts of California. While in office he was led into numerous dealings with the Russians and his policy toward them was highly liberal, even dangerous. He published his diary "The Dairy of Captain Arguello: The Last Spanish Expedition in California, October 17-November 17, 1821." in 1821.
