Name of creator
Luis Casero Guillén (1902-1998) was a Cuban politician, born in Santiago de Cuba. He was elected mayor of Santiago de Cuba in the 1940s and served as Minister of Public Works during the presidency of Carlos Prío Socarrás. In 1952, Casero Guillén was nomiated for Vice President on the Auténtico ticket along with Carlos Hevia for President, but the elections never took place due to the coup d'etat by Fulgencio Batista in March of 1952.
Casero Guillén became a member of the Rotary Club International in 1930 and he continued his involvement with this organization when he arrived in the United States in 1971 with the “Rotarios Cubanos Exiliados” (Cuban Exile Rotarians) until his death in 1998.
