Julius Zeigner-Uriburu came to the United States from Argentina in 1908. An author, statesman and specialist in international law, he taught a course in "Latin American Literature" at the University of Southern California in 1916. He was the representative of Argentina and the Pan-American conference in Mexico City and was a graduate of the universities of Buenos Aires and Leipzig. At some point in time Dr. Zeigner-Ubriburu was named the consultor to the Argentinian consulate in Los Angeles, where he lived for 30 years until his death in 1948. Also, possibly related to Gen. Jose Uriburu, who lead a military coup in Argentina in 1930 -- same year this photo was taken -- and was president for two years. His first name is given as "Julio" in his Los Angeles Times obituary, but is given as "Julius" in his Declaration of Intention for Naturalization and in a 1916 Los Angeles Times article.
