A. Cabral
Cabral, Amílcar (Lopes) (b. Sept. 12, 1924, Bafatá, Portuguese Guinea - d. Jan. 20, 1973, Conakry, Guinea), Guinea-Bissau politician. Already determined to find ways of working for his country's independence, he served for two years in the colonial administration of Portuguese Guinea. His opinions became offensive to the governor of the colony, and Cabral transferred to Angola. There, late in 1956, he helped to form, with Agostinho Neto, the earliest important nationalist grouping of that colony, the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA). A few months earlier, during a visit to Bissau, he also formed with five others the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde (Partido Africano da Independência da Guiné e Cabo Verde; PAIGC) and became its secretary-general. This small clandestine grouping pressed for political concessions by organizing strikes and demonstrations, but decided in September 1959, after the particularly violent repression of a strike in the Bissau docks, to prepare for armed action. It was from this period that Cabral began to demonstrate the personal qualities of patience, courage, and political farsightedness which were soon to make him, as well as the movement that he led, into a most formidable opponent of continued Portuguese colonial rule. The armed uprising of the PAIGC was launched in January 1963 and survived all Portuguese efforts at repression. In the late 1960s Cabral was the de facto ruler of the parts of Portuguese Guinea not occupied by army units from Portugal. In 1972 he established a Guinean People's National Assembly as a step toward independence. He was assassinated outside his home in Conakry, where his party had established its headquarters.

He became active in the trade union movement and the movement to liberate Portuguese Guinea from the colonial government. He was a founder of the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC) with Amílcar Cabral in 1956. Luís went into exile in 1960 to escape arrest from the colonial authorities. He served on PAIGC's Council of War from 1965 and took part in the guerrilla struggle. He was placed in charge of the reconstruction of liberated areas in Guinea-Bissau in 1970. By 1972 the PAIGC claimed to have won control over two-thirds of the country. Luís Cabral succeeded as PAIGC's leader following Amílcar's assassination on Jan. 20, 1973. He served as head of state after Guinea-Bissau's self-proclaimed independence from Sept. 26, 1973, acknowledged by Portugal the following year. He was deposed in a coup led by João Bernardo Vieira in November 1980. He was imprisoned until Jan. 1, 1982; he then went into exile in Cape Verde and later in Cuba and Portugal.

With permission from King Louis XIV, Cadillac established a Great Lakes fur-trading post and founded Fort-Pontchartrain du Détroit (1701), later called Detroit. He governed there until 1710, when his enemies in Quebec and Paris forced his removal to the new French colony of Louisiana (where he arrived in 1713). Increasingly unpopular there and himself dissatisfied with his appointment, Cadillac was recalled to France and was briefly confined in the Bastille (1717-18). He lived the rest of his life in retirement in Languedoc. The city of Cadillac, Mich.; Cadillac Mountain, Maine; and the Cadillac automobile are named for him.

He served with Finance Minister António Salazar (later prime minister) in 1929 and helped to draft the constitution of 1933 and other legal documents of the "New State." In 1940 he became head of Mocidade Portuguesa, the national youth movement. He was vice-president of the Corporative Chamber, the upper house, and served as minister of the colonies (1944-47). Between 1950 and 1955 he was president of the Chamber, and in 1955 Salazar chose him as his right-hand man as minister of the presidency, a post he filled for three years. Despite his occasional disputes with Salazar, he wholeheartedly supported the latter's right-wing policies. When Salazar suffered a stroke in 1968, Caetano was appointed prime minister. He admitted an opposition and rectified the constitution. While Salazar rarely moved from Lisbon, Caetano made frequent trips abroad - to Africa, Latin America, the United States, and Europe. In 1970 he became the first prime minister to visit the Portuguese African territories. But Africa was at the centre of his downfall. The major part of the armed forces were engaged in policing the colonies and fighting guerrilla wars at an enormous cost to the nation. World opinion was against colonialism and there was universal concern at reports in 1973 that Portuguese troops had massacred 400 in Mozambique. Dissatisfaction in the army led to the "Revolution of the Flowers," which in 1974 overthrew the New State and drove Caetano into exile. He settled in Brazil.

In Congress, he was active in passage of the Civil Rights Act as a member of the House Judiciary Committee. He was a liberal Republican, pro-union and active in urban causes. He once singled out Richard Nixon for not paying more attention to domestic problems such as the urban decay affecting Newark. Cahill broke with fellow Republicans at times, praising students who protested Nixon's decision to invade Cambodia during the Vietnam War, and pushing to soften penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana. As governor, he focused on the environment (the Department of Environmental Protection was created during his term), raised the state sales tax from 3% to 5% to balance the budget shortly after taking office, and also presided over introduction of a state lottery. But he lost an attempt to get voter approval of a state income tax recommended by a commission he had appointed. Opposition to his tax proposals and corruption charges against associates limited Cahill to one term as governor. Seeking a second term, he was defeated in the Republican primary - the only time he lost an election for public office.

He was also minister of finance (1899-1902, 1906-09, 1911, 1913-14, 1925, 1926, 1935) and interior and worship (1911-12) and president of the Radical Party (1913-14). He had to resign as finance minister in 1914 after his wife assassinated the editor of the Figaro, Gaston Calmette, who had led a press campaign against him. She was subsequently acquitted. During World War I he was himself arrested because of his advocacy of a negotiated peace; he was convicted in 1920 for wartime communication with the enemy and deprived of political rights for 10 years. Following an amnesty he returned to politics in 1925.

Cairns, Don(ald Hunter) (b. Oct. 29, 1946), administrator of the British Indian Ocean Territory (1992-94).

J. Cairns
Cairns, Jim, byname of James Ford Cairns (b. Oct. 4, 1914, Carlton, near Melbourne, Vic. - d. Oct. 12, 2003, Narre Warren East, near Melbourne), Australian politician. He entered federal politics as the member for Yarra in 1955. He played a large role in keeping Catholic anti-Communists within the Victorian Labor Party at bay. He rose through the ranks particularly by his anti-Vietnam War stance. While the Labor Party remained ambivalent in the early years of the war, Cairns was quick to denounce Australia's strong support for the United States. It culminated in him leading huge antiwar marches, and in Labor's decision to oppose conscription and the war. He also opposed the White Australia policy. His strong position also aroused anger and in 1969 he and his family were bashed in their home, one of his attackers saying, "Who do you think you are - God?" Cairns took months to recover. He was defeated for the party leadership in 1966 when Arthur Calwell was replaced by Gough Whitlam as leader. Two years later, when Whitlam resigned the leadership in an internal squabble, Cairns lost again, falling six votes short of Whitlam. When Labor gained power in 1972 with Whitlam at the helm, Cairns was made trade and secondary industry minister. Among his achievements was a trade deal with China and closer links with the Middle East. Following the economic problems that confounded the government, he was made treasurer and deputy prime minister in 1974. In 1975, he was sacked as treasurer for allegedly misleading parliament over his involvement in overseas loan-raising, but within Labor the move was seen as punishment for an improper relationship with his office coordinator Junie Morosi. He spent a short period as environment minister before the Whitlam government was swept from office in 1975. In 1977 he retired.

Cairns, Sir William Wellington (b. 1828, Ireland - d. July 9, 1888, London, England), lieutenant governor of Malacca (1867-69), Saint Christopher (1869-70), and British Honduras (1870-74) and governor of Trinidad (1874), Queensland (1875-77), and South Australia (1877); knighted 1877. The city of Cairns in Queensland is named after him.

Cairoli, Carlos Molinari (b. Sept. 15, 1917, Uruguaiana, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil), acting justice and interior minister of Brazil (1962, 1963).

Caix (de Saint-Aymour), Robert de (b. Feb. 5, 1869, Paris, France - d. March 12, 1970), acting high commissioner of Syria and Lebanon (1922-23).

Cajander, Aimo Kaarlo (b. April 4, 1879, Nystad [now Uusikaupunki], Finland - d. Jan. 21, 1943, Helsinki, Finland), prime minister (1922, 1924, 1937-39) and defense minister (1928-29) of Finland.

Cakaj, Gent (b. July 6, 1990, Pristina, Kosovo, Serbia), acting foreign minister of Albania (2019-20).

Çakmak, (Mustafa) Fevzi, until Jan. 1, 1935, Mustafa Fevzi Pasha (b. Jan. 12, 1876, Istanbul - d. April 10, 1950, Istanbul), Turkish politician. A lieutenant in 1895, he was made lieutenant colonel and appointed chief of staff of an army corps in 1910. He fought in the Balkan Wars of 1912-13 as commander of a division, and in World War I as commander of an army corps and (in 1917-18) of an army. War minister in 1920, he resigned the commission and office granted him by the sultan and joined Kemal Atatürk's "rebellion" in Ankara. There he was made prime minister and minister of defense. Promoted to the rank of full general during the Greek invasion of Anatolia, he resigned his premiership in 1922 and became deputy to Ismet Inönü, then chief of staff. After the victorious conclusion of the War of Liberation, he was promoted as the new republic's first marshal and appointed chief of staff, holding this position for 20 years. With Atatürk and Inönü, he was one of the three statesmen who created modern Turkey. In the 1946 elections he stood as an independent and was elected with a great majority. In 1948 he accepted the honorary leadership of the Nation's (conservative) Party.

Çakmakoglu, Sabahattin (b. Nov. 25, 1930, Incesu, Kayseri, Turkey), interior minister (1991) and defense minister (1999-2002) of Turkey. He was also governor of Gümüshane (1972-75), Isparta (1975-78), Edirne (1978), Gaziantep (1979-80), and Mersin (1984-88).

Cakobau, Ratu Sir George (Kadavulevu), Vunivalu of Bau (b. Nov. 6, 1912, Bau island, Fiji - d. Nov. 25, 1989, Suva, Fiji), governor-general of Fiji (1973-83); knighted 1973; great-grandson of Ratu Seru Epenisa Cakobau. He was the first Fijian nobleman to be sent abroad for his education, studying in Australia and New Zealand. During World War II he served with distinction as an officer in the Fiji Military Forces fighting the Japanese in the Pacific islands. He was installed as Vunivalu, the traditional paramount chief, in 1959. Deeply attached to everything British, he was widely believed to be opposed to independence from Britain. But the large Indian population of the islands, outnumbering native Fijians, won the day. He served as minister for Fijian affairs and local government in 1970-71. In 1973, three years after independence, he became the first locally-born governor-general. In 1987 he received newly elected prime minister Timoci Bavadra, indicating his support for the new interracial government. He remained largely silent in the wake of the two military coups that followed in 1987, and the establishment of a republic in Fiji by military decree and the consequent severance of those links with the crown which he so cherished. However, when in March 1988 Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara, without apparently consulting Cakobau beforehand, set off for London to try to persuade the queen to retain the title of Tui Viti which was passed to Queen Victoria in 1874, Cakobau was outraged, saying, "The title came back to me when Fiji became independent in 1970. I have no plans to abdicate. The title is not Ratu Mara's to give away."

Cakobau, Ratu Seru Epenisa (b. 1815, Lakeba island, Fiji - d. February 1883), ruler (Vunivalu) of Bau (1852-74), president of the General Assembly of the Confederacy of Independent Kingdoms of Viti (1865-67), king of Bau (1867-69) and of Viti (1871-74). He embraced Christianity and later led chiefs across the island group to cede sovereignty to Queen Victoria and become part of the British Empire in 1874, thus ending years of bloody tribal warfare.

Cakste, Janis (b. Sept. 14, 1859, Lielsesava, Russia [now in Latvia] - d. March 14, 1927, Riga, Latvia), president of Latvia (1922-25, 1925-27). He edited a Latvian newspaper, Tevija ("Fatherland"), served on a committee appointed by the local administration to inquire into agricultural conditions in Courland (1902), and was frequently a member of Russian imperial government committees. He was elected to the first Russian Duma (assembly) in March 1906, and was one of those who signed the Viborg protest against its dissolution in July, losing his political privileges in consequence. When the German invasion of Courland (July 1915) in World War I obliged him to leave Jelgava, he moved to Petrograd, where he was one of the founders of the Latvian Refugees Committee, which, in addition to its relief work, supported Latvian autonomy. He went to Stockholm in 1916 to promote the cause of Latvian independence and wrote Die Letten und ihre Latwija (1917; "The Letts and Their Latvia"). Elected chairman of the Latvian People's Council in 1918, he was later the head of the delegation sent to London and to the Paris Peace Conference to secure the recognition of the Latvian republic. While he was absent on that mission, Cakste was elected president of the People's Council (1918); he was later elected president of the Constitutional Assembly (1920) and, when the first Saeima (parliament) convened, president of the Republic of Latvia (Nov. 14, 1922). He was reelected in November 1925 and died in office.

Calasans, João José de Bittencourt (b. June 12, 1811, Santa Luzia [now Santa Luzia do Itanhi], Sergipe, Brazil - d. Aug. 18, 1870, Santa Luzia), acting president of Sergipe (1847).

R. Caldera
Caldera (Rodríguez), Rafael (Antonio) (b. Jan. 24, 1916, San Felipe, Yaracuy, Venezuela - d. Dec. 24, 2009, Caracas, Venezuela), president of Venezuela (1969-74, 1994-99). He entered politics in the 1930s, and in 1946 founded the Social-Christian COPEI party, a movement grounded in the middle class. He helped revive democracy as one of the three signers of the Punto Fijo pact, which organized elections after the fall of dictator Gen. Marcos Pérez Jiménez in 1958. Under the pact, COPEI and Rómulo Betancourt's Democratic Action party shared power for 40 years. Viewed by many as the grandfather of Venezuelan politics, Caldera ran in six presidential elections and won twice, in 1969 and 1993. Tough with political adversaries and inclined toward populism, he was also known for living simply and for integrity in a country where corruption was common. Caldera's supporters said his second term, during which he grew increasingly frail to the point of infirmity, brought relative political stability to Venezuela. The country had been buffeted by 1989 price riots, two 1992 military coup attempts, and the 1993 dismissal of a president who later was tried and convicted on corruption charges. Caldera's critics argued that he fell short on his promises to restructure and modernize an inefficient state apparatus. They noted that he presided over two devaluations in three years and left Latin America's fourth-largest economy in deep recession. In 1994, Caldera pardoned Hugo Chávez, who was jailed for leading one of the failed coups two years earlier. But Caldera was later deeply at odds with Chávez, who came to succeed him as president.

Calderón (Hinojosa), Felipe (de Jesús) (b. Aug. 18, 1962, Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico), president of Mexico (2006-12). His father, Luis Calderón Vega, had been among the founding members of the pro-business National Action Party (PAN) in 1939. From a young age Felipe Calderón helped in political campaigns. He rose through the ranks of PAN, becoming the leader of its youth movement in 1986 and then secretary-general (1993-95) and president (1996-99) of the party. Meanwhile he was elected to the legislative assembly of the Distrito Federal (1988-91) and to the federal Chamber of Deputies (1991-94). He ran unsuccessfully for governor of Michoacán in 1995. Returning to the Chamber of Deputies in 2000, he was designated as coordinator of the PAN parliamentary group. Vicente Fox, the first PAN candidate to be elected president of Mexico (2000-06), named him director-general of the national development bank (Banobras) in 2003 and then appointed him to the cabinet as energy minister (2003-04). Calderón unexpectedly ran for the PAN presidential nomination in the 2005 primaries and defeated Fox's preferred candidate, Santiago Creel. In the presidential election of July 2, 2006, Calderón finished first with 35.9% of the vote, leading Andrés Manuel López Obrador of the left-wing Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), by a mere 0.6% of the vote. López Obrador refused to concede the election, demanded a full recount, and initiated a series of massive street demonstrations that continued for weeks. After a partial recount, the Federal Electoral Tribunal declared Calderón president-elect on September 5. Calderón was inaugurated in the Congress building on December 1, while PRD legislators blew whistles in the chamber and up to 100,000 protesters demonstrated outside. The following week - in an effort to undermine López Obrador's support by appropriating his key issues - he announced plans to reduce salaries for himself and other top government officials and to increase spending for education, health insurance for the poor, housing, and public safety. He oversaw the passage of legislation to reform Mexico's judicial system and worked to strengthen the energy sector, increase the number of jobs, and fight crime and drug cartels. But drug-related violence only got worse, some 60,000 people being killed during his presidency.

Calderón, Pedro José (b. 1832, Lima, Peru - d. 1885), foreign minister (1864-65, 1879-81) and prime minister (1865) of Peru. He was also minister to Germany and Austria-Hungary (1871-72).

S.M. Calderón
Calderón (Serra de Cantero Frau), Sila María (b. Sept. 23, 1942, San Juan), governor of Puerto Rico (2001-05). When Luis Silva Recio, a former professor of Calderón's, was chosen as Puerto Rico's secretary of labour in 1973, she became his executive assistant. In 1984 she served as the special assistant to Gov. Rafael Hernández Colón, who the following year appointed her chief of staff, and she then served as secretary of the interior before becoming secretary of state in 1988. She was elected mayor of San Juan in 1996 and was later chosen as head of the Popular Democratic Party. In the 1998 referendum on statehood organized by pro-statehood governor Pedro Rosselló, she led the pro-commonwealth campaign; her efforts were rewarded when the majority voted in favour of commonwealth status. In running for governor in 2000, she promised to end corruption and the U.S. Navy's bombing exercises on Vieques, an island off the east coast of the main island of Puerto Rico that had been used for naval exercises since 1941. Her strong antibombing stance, plus the killing of a security officer by an errant bomb in 1999 and the island's alarmingly high cancer rate (which many attributed to the exercises), brought her the victory. Immediately after her inauguration she vowed to step up efforts to end the military use of the island. On April 24, 2001, she launched legal action against the U.S. government, basing the suit on the Noise Control Act of 1972. Although U.S. president George W. Bush initially resisted ending the exercises, in June his administration announced that the bombings would be permanently halted in 2003. Having divorced her longtime husband Adolfo Krans soon after taking office, she married her former secretary of economic development, Ramón Cantero Frau, in 2003.

Calderón Berti, Humberto (b. Oct. 21, 1941, Boconó, Trujillo state, Venezuela), foreign minister of Venezuela (1992). He was also minister of energy and mines (1979-83). In 2019 he was ambassador to Colombia for the Juan Guaidó government.

Calhoun, John C(aldwell) (b. March 18, 1782, near Calhoun Mills [now Mount Carmel], S.C. - d. March 31, 1850, Washington, D.C.), U.S. secretary of war (1817-25), vice president (1825-32), and secretary of state (1844-45). He was elected to South Carolina's state legislature in 1808 and the U.S. House of Representatives in 1810. There he soon became acting chairman of the committee on foreign affairs, supported the measures which led to the War of 1812 (1812-15) with Great Britain, and promoted the protective tariff. In 1817 he joined Pres. James Monroe's cabinet and reorganized the War Department. He eagerly sought the presidency for himself but was never successful, becoming, however, vice president under both John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson. His Address to the People of South Carolina (1831) set forth his theory of state rights. On the passing by South Carolina in 1832 of the nullification ordinance he resigned the vice presidency, and entered the Senate, becoming a leader of the states-rights movement, working to unite the South against the abolitionist attack on slavery, an institution he defended as a "positive good." Resigning from the Senate in 1843, he became secretary of state under Pres. John Tyler in 1844, in which role he signed a treaty annexing Texas. Elected to the Senate again in 1845, he strenuously opposed the Mexican War of 1846-47. His last effort was a vigorous protest against the Compromise of 1850, introduced by Henry Clay to avert a crisis between North and South. Calhoun, Clay, and Daniel Webster were known as the "great triumvirate" of U.S. political orators.

Calhoun, William Lowndes (b. Nov. 21, 1837, Decatur, Ga. - d. Nov. 16, 1908, Atlanta, Ga.), mayor of Atlanta (1879-80); son of James M. Calhoun.

Caliguiri, Richard S. (b. Oct. 20, 1931, Pittsburgh, Pa. - d. May 6, 1988, Pittsburgh), mayor of Pittsburgh (1977-88).

Calimachi-Catargi, Nicolae, also spelled Calimachi-Catargiu (b. Feb. 3, 1831 [or Feb. 24, 1830], Iasi, Moldavia [now in Romania] - d. Feb. 9, 1882, Paris, France), foreign minister of Romania (1869-70, 1870-71). He was also diplomatic agent to France (1877-80) and the United Kingdom (1880-81).

Calinescu, Armand (Mihai) (b. June 3 [May 22, O.S.], 1893, Pitesti, Romania - d. Sept. 21, 1939, Bucharest, Romania), prime minister of Romania (1939). He was an organizer for the National Peasant Party and in 1919 entered on a public political career as general secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture. In 1926 he was elected to parliament. In 1930 he was made undersecretary of state of the Ministry of the Interior. In December 1937 he became minister of interior in the National Christian cabinet of Octavian Goga. In February 1938 Romania was on the verge of serious disturbances, and Calinescu told King Carol that he could not guarantee the maintenance of order during the elections which were about to be held as the anti-Semitic partisans of Alexandru C. Cuza had gotten out of hand in the provinces. On the other hand, the Iron Guard, an equally anti-Semitic and conspiratorial body guilty of a long list of political assassinations, seemed almost certain to be returned in such a strength as to entitle it to office. King Carol dismissed Goga, entrusting the formation of a new cabinet to the Orthodox patriarch Miron Cristea. Calinescu remained interior minister and became in fact the driving force of the government, carrying on the fight against the Iron Guards, bringing them up to trial and subsequently obtaining from the courts heavy sentences on their leaders. When Cristea's health failed, Calinescu was appointed vice premier and war minister, and he became premier on the patriarch's death (March 1939). He was one of the sponsors of the Romanian National Renaissance Front, aiming at uniting in one group all the Romanian political parties. But his plans were cut short when he was assassinated by Guardist terrorists.

Call, Guillermo (Antonio) (b. March 11, 1940), governor of Monagas (1986-87, 1989-95, 2000-04).

Call, Richard K(eith) (b. Oct. 24, 1792, Prince George county, Va. - d. Sept. 14, 1862, Tallahassee, Fla.), governor of Florida (1836-39, 1841-44).

Callaghan of Cardiff, (Leonard) James Callaghan, Baron (b. March 27, 1912, Portsmouth, Hampshire, England - d. March 26, 2005, Ringmer, East Sussex, England), prime minister of the United Kingdom (1976-79). By 1936 he had become a full-time trade-union official. He entered Parliament in 1945, representing the Welsh constituency of Cardiff South. Between 1947 and 1951 Callaghan held junior posts at the Ministry of Transport and at the Admiralty. When Harold Wilson's Labour government was formed in 1964, Callaghan was named chancellor of the exchequer. In this capacity he helped secure in 1966-67 international agreement to a system called Special Drawing Rights, which in effect created a new kind of international money. He resigned from the exchequer in 1967, when he was forced to devalue the pound sterling. He then served as home secretary until 1970. In Wilson's second government in 1974, Callaghan was named foreign secretary; and in 1976, upon Wilson's resignation, Callaghan succeeded him as prime minister, largely because the Parliamentary Labour Party considered him the least divisive candidate. A moderate within the party, he tried to stem the increasingly vociferous demands of Britain's trade unions. He also had to secure the passage of unpopular spending cuts early in his ministry. His reassuring public manner came to be criticized as complacency when a series of labour strikes in 1978-79 paralyzed hospital care, refuse collection, and other essential services. In March 1979 his government was brought down by a vote of no confidence passed in the House of Commons, the first such occurrence since 1924. At the subsequent general election, Labour was defeated. On Oct. 15, 1980, he resigned as party leader, to be succeeded by Michael Foot. He was knighted and shortly afterward created a life peer in 1987.

Callbeck, Catherine S(ophia) (b. July 25, 1939, Central Bedeque, P.E.I.), premier of Prince Edward Island (1993-96). Callbeck's political career began with her election to the island legislature in 1974, where she served until 1978. She was elected to parliament in 1988, but resigned in November 1992 to seek the Liberal leadership in the province, which she won in January 1993. She led the Liberals to victory in every seat but one in the March 1993 election. She became the first woman elected to lead a Canadian provincial government. (Canada's first female premier was Rita Johnston in British Columbia, who took over after a resignation but was then defeated in elections.) Callbeck, who could have remained in office until early 1998, resigned on Aug. 6, 1996. The unexpected resignation followed reports of dissension within her Liberal Party after she decided against calling an early election in June. Opposition leaders said Callbeck backed off because support for her government had fallen. Callbeck also quit the Liberal Party leadership. On Sept. 23, 1997, she was called to the Senate of Canada.

Calle Restrepo, Diego (b. July 18, 1926, Ciudad Bolívar, Antioquia, Colombia - d. Oct. 20, 1985, Medellín, Colombia), finance minister of Colombia (1964-65). He was also ambassador to Canada (1965-66) and governor of Antioquia (1970-73).

P.E. Calles
Calles, Plutarco Elías, original name Francisco Plutarco Elías Campuzano (b. Sept. 25, 1877, Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico - d. Oct. 19, 1945, Mexico City, Mexico), president of Mexico (1924-28). He joined the struggle of Francisco Madero against the dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz in 1910. Calles was an extremely gifted organizer and leader and a general in the battles, first against Victoriano Huerta, who had assassinated Madero, and then against Pancho Villa and his rebel forces. In 1917-19 (and provisionally in 1915-16) Calles was governor of Sonora. Appointed secretary of commerce, labour, and industry under Pres. Venustiano Carranza, he resigned to support the candidacy of Álvaro Obregón and was instrumental in overthrowing Carranza in 1920. Calles served as secretary of war under Adolfo de la Huerta (1920) and then as secretary of the interior under Obregón (1920-24). In 1924 Calles was elected president. Although becoming increasingly conservative, he sponsored agrarian, labour, and educational reforms. His term was marked also by difficulties with the Roman Catholic Church and the United States. President-elect Obregón was assassinated in 1928, and for the next six years Calles was the real power behind three puppet presidents, besides holding office as secretary of war (1929, 1931-32) and finance and public credit (1933-34). His base was the Partido Nacional Revolucionario (PNR), which he organized in 1929; its support of a candidate was tantamount to election. In those six years the more radical aspects of the revolution were methodically curbed. But by 1934, left-wing groups had begun to control the PNR, and Calles had to support their candidate for president, Lázaro Cárdenas. This deteriorated into an open break, and Calles was forced into exile in 1936. He lived in California until 1941, when he was permitted to return.

Calles (Rojas), Rafael (José) (b. Sept. 4, 1970, Guanare, Portuguesa, Venezuela), governor of Portuguesa (2017-21).

Calonder, Felix (Louis) (b. Dec. 7, 1863, Scuol, Graubünden, Switzerland - d. June 14, 1952, Zürich), president of the Council of States (1911-12), interior minister (1913-17), foreign minister (1918-19), and president (1918) of Switzerland.

Calonge (y Fenollet), Eusebio (b. Dec. 15, 1814, Vitoria, Spain - d. October 1873, Madrid, Spain), foreign minister of Spain (1866-67). He was also captain-general of the Canary Islands (1852) and Navarra (1852-54) and minister of navy (1866).

Calonne, Charles Alexandre de (b. Jan. 20, 1734, Douai, France - d. Oct. 29, 1802, Paris, France), French statesman. He held various posts in French Flanders and in Artois before becoming intendant of Metz (1768) and of Lille (1774). His financial genius and court connections led to his appointment as controller general of finance in November 1783. At that time the French government was heavily in debt. Calonne reconstituted a sinking fund (1784) to pay off the debt, and in 1785 he reformed the gold coinage. He soon discovered, however, that major reforms were necessary to save France from bankruptcy. In August 1786 he submitted to King Louis XVI a far-reaching plan of reform that involved increasing the taxation of the privileged noble and clerical orders through a proportional tax on land. Recognizing that the Parlements (high courts of justice) would reject his proposals, Calonne submitted them instead to a special Assembly of Notables - nobles, clergy, and magistrates - which convened on Feb. 22, 1787. Nevertheless, the intrigues of his political opponents and the antagonism of the higher clergy and magistrates in the assembly thwarted his efforts. His revelation of the annual deficit of more than 100,000,000 livres and the failure of his reform schemes ensured the summons of the Estates-General in August 1788, which in turn led directly to the French Revolution. In April 1787 Louis XVI dismissed Calonne from office, and four months later he withdrew to England. After the Revolution began, Calonne devoted himself to the cause of counterrevolution. He was chief adviser to the émigrés (nobles in exile) from December 1790 until the fall of the monarchy in August 1792. In 1802, during Napoléon Bonaparte's Consulate regime, he returned to France. He died soon thereafter.

Calvo Sotelo, José, posthumously (from 1948) duque de Calvo Sotelo (b. May 6, 1893, Tuy, Pontevedra, Spain - d. [assassinated] July 13, 1936, Madrid, Spain), finance minister of Spain (1925-30). He was also civil governor of Valencia (1921-22).

Calvo-Sotelo y Bustelo, Leopoldo (Ramón Pedro), from June 24, 2002, marqués de la Ría de Ribadeo (b. April 14, 1926, Madrid, Spain - d. May 3, 2008, Pozuelo, Spain), prime minister of Spain (1981-82); nephew of José Calvo Sotelo. Although he held ministerial office from the end of the Franco era, he first gained political prominence for his role in helping to organize the Christian Democrats and groups further to the right into the Unión Centro Democrático (UCD) in time to win the June 1977 elections. In the subsequent administration he was rewarded with the post of minister without portfolio, in charge of negotiating Spain's accession to the European Communities (EC). Following the resignation of Premier Adolfo Suárez González and the abortive coup of Feb. 23-24, 1981, Deputy Premier Calvo-Sotelo took over the premiership on February 25 and with it the task of guiding Spain's uneasy transition from the authoritarianism of the Franco regime to Western European-style democracy. His task was rendered more difficult by conflict within the ruling UCD between right-wing Christian Democrats and "Suaristas" (followers of former premier Suárez). Calvo-Sotelo's election as UCD president in November, replacing Agustín Rodríguez Sahagún (Suárez's brother-in-law) would, it was hoped, consolidate the party under his leadership. Calvo-Sotelo was regarded as a superb administrator and surrounded himself with able technocrats. If his political talents were less marked than those of his predecessor, his credibility with the private sector and trade unions enabled him to achieve the lowest wage settlement in Spain's recent history. His critics faulted him for his lack of success, initially at least, in demonstrating his independence from the preceding government and for his lack of progress (through little fault of his own) in negotiating an agreement with the EC.

Calzada Rovirosa, José (Eduardo) (b. Aug. 21, 1964, Querétaro, Querétaro, Mexico), governor of Querétaro (2009-15); son of Antonio Calzada Urquiza. He was also Mexican minister of agriculture (2015-18).

In June 1878 he was appointed prefect of Constantine (Algeria) and then served as secretary-general of the prefecture of Paris and prefect of the départements of Nord (1882-87) and Rhône (1887-91). In January 1891 he returned to Algeria as governor-general. After a conspicuously successful term in Algeria, he was appointed ambassador to the United States (October 1897) and helped negotiate the peace after the Spanish-American War (1898). As ambassador to Spain (1902-07) and to Germany (1907-14), he was concerned in the disputes between France and Germany at Algeciras (1906) and after the Agadir crisis (1911). Together with his brother Paul, who was ambassador to Great Britain, he laboured to avoid war with Germany. When the hostilities began (1914), he returned to Paris to become secretary-general of the Foreign Ministry (1915). During the Versailles peace conferences, he served as chairman of the commissions for Greek, Czech, and Polish matters. In 1918 he was elected to the French Academy. At the end of the Versailles peace conference (1919) Georges Clemenceau appointed him to preside over the Council of Ambassadors, which was designed to supervise the application of the peace agreements, and he held this post until March 1922.

D. Cameron
Cameron, David (William Donald) (b. Oct. 9, 1966, London, England), British prime minister (2010-16); great-great-great-great-great-grandson of William IV. The first step of his political career was a job in the Conservative Party research department. After a spell seconded to No. 10 Downing Street where he helped brief John Major for Prime Minister's Questions, he was talent-spotted by Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont who made him his special adviser. After unsuccessfully standing in Stafford in the 1997 general election, he entered Parliament in 2001 as MP for Witney, northwest of London. He became the leading light of the so-called "Notting Hill set" of young modernizers who grouped themselves around Michael Howard after he became leader in 2003. After only two years in Parliament, Cameron was appointed to the Conservative front bench. Howard entrusted him with the key task of policy coordinator in the run-up to the 2005 election. After the Conservatives were defeated and Howard resigned, Cameron was elected party leader, defeating David Davis in the final vote. In the 2010 general election he built the Tory campaign around the concept of the "Big Society" - a far cry (at least rhetorically) from the days of Margaret Thatcher, who said there was no such thing as society. His "green" credentials took a knock when it was disclosed that he was followed on his bicycle ride to work by a driver taking his papers and other belongings. The Conservatives emerged as the strongest party, but short of a majority, and he formed a government together with the Liberal Democrats, the first coalition government since World War II. At 43 he became the youngest prime minister in almost 200 years, being a few months younger than Tony Blair was on taking office in 1997. In 2015 he won a majority for the Conservatives alone. Having promised an "in-out" referendum on EU membership to mollify Euroskeptics, this was duly held in June 2016, and although he campaigned for the "Remain" side, "Leave" won 52%-48%. He then said he would resign before the autumn; he was succeeded by Theresa May in July. In September he also resigned as MP.

Campagnolo, Iona, née Hardy (b. Oct. 18, 1932, Galiano Island, B.C.), lieutenant governor of British Columbia (2001-07). She first entered politics in 1966, as a school board trustee, and later as alderman, in the city of Prince Rupert. In 1973 she decided to enter federal politics and was elected as a Liberal in the Skeena riding. She soon became a popular figure in the party, and Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau appointed her minister of fitness and amateur sport (1976-79). In 1982 she was elected as the first woman president of the Liberal Party. She resigned from politics after the Liberals' electoral defeat in 1984, and returned to British Columbia to pursue her career in broadcasting, as well as a brief stint as founding chancellor of the University of Northern British Columbia. In 2001 Governor-General Adrienne Clarkson appointed her as the first female lieutenant governor of British Columbia. She received the Order of Canada in 1973 and the Order of British Columbia in 1998.

G. Campbell
Campbell, Gordon (Muir) (b. Jan. 12, 1948, Vancouver, B.C.), premier of British Columbia (2001-11). He first entered politics in the 1970s serving as an executive assistant to Vancouver mayor Art Phillips. Campbell was elected city councillor in 1984 and mayor in 1986. As mayor, the former real-estate executive earned a reputation as the "developer's mayor" and eliminated many of the city's cultural attractions that were seen at the time as being non-profitable. In 1993, he ran for the leadership of the newly reformed B.C. Liberal Party and won, beating incumbent leader Gordon Wilson. The party became badly divided, and Wilson, clearly bitter over his defeat, formed his own party, the Progressive Democratic Alliance, and began to siphon support from Campbell's Liberals. When the ruling New Democratic Party called a provincial election in 1996, the split in the conservative vote due to the PDA and the Reform Party caused Campbell to narrowly lose the election, even though he won a plurality of the popular vote. He remained as opposition leader during the days of the Glen Clark government, and public support for his party began to increase as the NDP became bogged down in numerous scandals. In 2001 Premier Ujjal Dosanjh called a late election, and Campbell easily rode a wave of public support to the biggest provincial majority in British Columbian history, winning 77 seats to the NDP's 2. Reelected in 2005 and 2009, he resigned in 2011 and later that year became Canadian high commissioner to the United Kingdom (until 2016).

He was a Marine during World War II, an FBI agent, and speaker of the New Mexico state House. A Democrat, he served two terms as governor of New Mexico (1963-67), enforcing a nonpartisan civil service for state employees and modernizing services for the mentally ill. He was the first New Mexico governor to appoint a science adviser. He had a wide interest in space and technology and served on several boards that promoted development in those areas.

K. Campbell
Campbell, Kim, byname of Avril Phaedra Douglas Campbell (b. March 10, 1947, Port Alberni, B.C.), prime minister of Canada (1993). In British Columbian provincial politics, she was associated with the Social Credit Party and served as key policy adviser to Premier Bill Bennett. She ran unsuccessfully for the provincial legislature in 1983 and in May 1986 was defeated in a bid for the Social Credit provincial leadership. In October 1986, however, she won a seat in the Legislative Assembly for a Vancouver riding. Turning her attention to federal politics and the Progressive Conservative Party, she was elected to the House of Commons in 1988 for the British Columbian riding of Vancouver Centre. Her mentor, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, saw her as a possible successor and fostered her career. She was appointed minister for Indian affairs and northern development in 1989. In 1990 she became justice minister and attorney general; her tenure was marked by several legislative successes, including strengthening Canada's gun-control laws and passing a tough rape law. Mulroney brought her into the inner cabinet in 1990 as a member of the Expenditure Review Committee. Her appointment as defense minister in January 1993 was seen as a signal of Mulroney's confidence in her political future, especially when he announced his own retirement shortly thereafter. She was selected by a party convention to replace Mulroney on June 13, and became Canada's first woman and first West Coast prime minister on June 25. Her tenure, however, was brief. Her party suffered a crushing defeat in the October 25 general elections. Campbell herself lost her seat. She left office in November, and on December 13 she resigned as party leader. In 1996-2000 she was consul general in Los Angeles.

Campbell, Lewis (Davis) (b. Aug. 9, 1811, Franklin, Ohio - d. Nov. 26, 1882, Hamilton, Ohio), U.S. politician. He was a member of the House of Representatives in 1849-58 and 1871-73.

He was first elected to the P.E.I. legislature in 1970 and held several portfolios, including education and finance. He succeeded Alexander Bradshaw Campbell (no relation) as leader of the P.E.I. Liberals and premier in 1978, but the Conservatives defeated his caretaker government a year later. He made a successful jump to federal politics in 1981 and served as veterans affairs minister until losing his seat in 1984.

Campbell-Bannerman, Sir Henry, original name Henry Campbell (b. Sept. 7, 1836, Glasgow, Scotland - d. April 22, 1908, London, England), British prime minister (1905-08). A member of the House of Commons from 1868, Campbell-Bannerman (who in 1871 added his mother's family surname to that of his father) was financial secretary to the War Office (1871-74, 1880-82), parliamentary and financial secretary to the Admiralty and spokesman for the Admiralty in the Commons (1882-84), chief secretary for Ireland (1884-85), and secretary of state for war (1886, 1892-95). On June 21, 1895, he induced the Duke of Cambridge to retire as commander in chief of the armed forces. During his 39-year tenure the duke had blocked army reform, and the queen, recognizing the necessity of the change, rewarded Campbell-Bannerman with a knighthood. On Feb. 6, 1899, Campbell-Bannerman was elected leader in the Commons of the badly divided Liberal Party. During the South African War he at first pursued a middle course between the imperialists and the antiwar "pro-Boers" among the Liberals, but on June 14, 1901, he exacerbated party disunity by condemning the British "methods of barbarism in South Africa." The Liberal imperialists' threatened secession from the party was averted, and the end of the war a year later eased party tensions, as did Campbell-Bannerman's "step by step" approach to the divisive issue of Irish Home Rule. He became prime minister after Arthur James Balfour's resignation late in 1905. The general election of January 1906 produced a large Liberal majority in the Commons, but much of his legislative program was nullified by the House of Lords. In 1907 his health began to fail, and, 17 days before his death, he resigned in favour of H.H. Asquith.

Canning, George (b. April 11, 1770, London, England - d. Aug. 8, 1827, Chiswick, near London), British prime minister (1827). In July 1792, he came under the influence of the prime minister, William Pitt, who undertook to find him a seat in Parliament. He was elected for the privately controlled borough of Newtown, Isle of Wight, in July 1793 and quickly became recognized as one of the rising men on the government side of the House. Pitt further procured for him the undersecretaryship of state for foreign affairs in 1796. In 1799 he left the foreign office and was appointed a commissioner of the Board of Control for the government of India. In May 1800 he was promoted to the office of joint paymaster of the forces and was made a privy councillor. When Pitt resigned in 1801, Canning, too, left office. On the formation of Pitt's last ministry in May 1804, Canning became treasurer of the navy, but his unpopularity (his biting wit made him many enemies) kept him out of the cabinet. He became foreign secretary in 1807. Holding Viscount Castlereagh, the war secretary, responsible for disasters in the Peninsular War, Canning in 1809 insisted on his dismissal. They quarreled and fought a duel on September 21, in which Canning was wounded in the thigh. Both had already resigned, Canning because of the nonfulfillment by Prime Minister William Bentinck of his promise that Castlereagh should be removed from the War Department. After Castlereagh committed suicide (Aug. 12, 1822), King George IV reluctantly acquiesced in Canning's succession to the "whole inheritance" - the foreign secretaryship and the leadership of the House of Commons. In April 1827 he became prime minister. But his health broke down, and his ministry lasted only four months.

He became a leader of the Zhili Military Group after the death of Gen. Feng Guozhang. Having defeated Duan Qirui in 1920 together with Zhang Zuolin, and then defeated his ally Zhang in 1922, he forced Pres. Xu Shichang to resign, and revived the parliament, which elected Li Yuanhong president again. But soon after that, he grew a strong desire to be the chief of state himself, so he first bought off the speaker of the House of Representatives, Wu Jinglian, who persuaded the MPs to "impeach" President Li. After Li left, Cao managed to get the MPs to elect him as president by bribery (5,000 yuan per congressman vote).

China's failure in diplomacy at the Paris conference of 1919, which, in accordance with the Twenty-one Demands, transferred all the German interests in China to Japan instead of restoring them to China, despite the fact that China was a victorious nation of World War I, led to the famous "May 4 Movement."

Caperton, W. Gaston, in full William Gaston Caperton III (b. Feb. 21, 1940, Charleston, W.Va.), governor of West Virginia (1989-97). Running for governor in 1988, the Democrat won 38% in a seven-candidate primary; in the general, he faced Arch Moore, elected in 1968, 1972, and 1984, but under a cloud on corruption charges for which in 1990 he was sentenced to five years in jail; Caperton won 59%-41%. Once in office, Caperton's job rating plunged when he broke his no-new-taxes pledge and steered to passage a $392 million tax increase, restoring the food sales tax former governor (now Senator) Jay Rockefeller had repealed. Then came a soap opera episode, as his wife divorced him and ran for state treasurer. But he had positive achievements, including an ethics bill, a road building package, and, most important, an education bill that raised teacher pay, set performance standards, and promised a computer for every classroom. Caperton won the 1992 Democratic primary, but led "coal miner's daughter" Charlotte Pritt by only 43%-35%. But he beat state Agriculture Secretary Cleve Benedict 56%-37% in the general, and afterwards his popularity seemed to rise as the West Virginia economy grew and new jobs were created. He claimed credit for reorganizing, rationalizing, and cutting state government; but he failed to get his Health Care Authority bill through the legislature in 1995. Caperton was not eligible for reelection in 1996.

Feb. 6, 1899, Skyren, Brandenburg, Prussia, Germany [now Skórzyn, Poland]), chancellor of Germany (1890-94). He entered the army in 1849 and took part in the Austrian campaign of 1866. In 1870-71, in the Franco-German War, he was chief of staff to the X Army Corps (part of the II Army) and took part in battles before Metz as well as in those around Orléans. In 1883 he was made chief of the admiralty, in which post he commanded the fleet and represented the department in the Reichstag. He resigned in 1888 and was appointed commander of the X Army Corps. Chancellor Otto von Bismarck had already referred to Caprivi as a possible successor, for Caprivi had shown great administrative ability and was unconnected with any political party, and in March 1890 he was appointed chancellor, foreign minister, and Prussian prime minister. His first achievement as chancellor was the conclusion in July 1890 of a general agreement with Great Britain regarding the spheres of influence of the two countries in Africa. But the abandonment of an aggressive policy in East Africa and Nigeria and the withdrawal of German claims to Zanzibar (in exchange for Helgoland) aroused the hostility of the colonial parties. He was given the title of count (Graf) in 1891. His position was seriously compromised in 1892 when an education bill that he had defended by saying that the question at issue was Christianity or atheism failed to carry, and he resigned the Prussian prime ministry, which was then given to Count Eulenburg. In 1894 a difference arose between Eulenburg and Caprivi concerning the bill for an amendment of the criminal code (the Umsturzvorlage), and in October the emperor dismissed both.

Hugh instead joined the civil administrative service (1929) and was posted to Palestine (1929-39) and then to Transjordan (1939-43), where he joined the Army as a lieutenant colonel in charge of the military administration of Cyrenaica (1943). He was named colonial secretary of Cyprus (1943-45) and then, having established a record of ruling under turmoil, was dispatched to Jamaica (1945-47) as colonial secretary. Next he was sent to Nigeria (1947-50), where he was a steadying presence as the idea of independence grew. He returned to Jamaica in 1951 and stayed until 1957 as captain general and governor in chief. He then accepted the post of governor of Cyprus, where he championed conciliation between Greeks and Turks and a plan for peaceable independent rule, which Cyprus achieved in 1960. Foot was made (1961) Britain's representative to the UN and appointed principal adviser on emerging countries. He resigned (1962) over Britain's policy on Rhodesia, but in 1963 he returned to the UN as a special adviser on African development and inquirer into apartheid in South Africa. In 1964, with the return of a Labour government, Foot was created a life peer and appointed permanent U.K. representative to the UN. He left that post in 1970 but continued as a consultant (1970-75) to the UN Development Program. He was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1939.

H.O. Caraway
Caraway, Hattie Ophelia, née Wyatt (b. Feb. 1, 1878, near Bakerville, Tenn. - d. Dec. 21, 1950, Falls Church, Va.), U.S. politician. In 1902 she married Thaddeus H. Caraway, who subsequently became U.S. senator for Arkansas. When he died in November 1931, his widow was appointed to his seat by the state's governor, and she subsequently won a special election (January 1932) to fill the few remaining months of her late husband's term. She thus became the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate. She won reelection to the seat later in 1932 with the help of Louisiana governor Huey Long, who campaigned for her. Caraway was reelected again in 1938, after a primary victory over Rep. John L. McClellan, but failed in her bid for a third term in 1944, being defeated in the Democratic primary by Rep. J. William Fulbright. In her 13 years in the Senate, she was the first woman to preside over a session of that body and the first to serve as a committee chairman. She supported prohibition, labour unions' and women's rights, and most of the New Deal legislation.

R. Carazo
Carazo Odio, Rodrigo (José Ramón Francisco de Jesús) (b. Dec. 27, 1926, Cartago, Costa Rica - d. Dec. 9, 2009, San José, Costa Rica), president of Costa Rica (1978-82); great-grandson-in-law of Saturnino Lizano. Through the 1950s and 1960s he was active in the Partido de Liberación Nacional (PLN) and served as director of the National Institute of Housing and Urbanization (1954-59) and the Central Bank of Costa Rica (1960-65). He resigned from the party in 1969 and became a leader of the political opposition. He was an unsuccessful presidential candidate for Renovación Democrática in 1974. In a stunning upset, Carazo defeated the candidate of the dominant PLN to capture the presidency in February 1978. His triumph was in part due to the PLN's ties with fugitive U.S. financier Robert Vesco. Carazo campaigned on a reform platform as candidate of a four-party opposition coalition. Speaking from a balcony in downtown San José following announcement of his narrow victory (Carazo captured slightly more than half of the 755,000 votes cast), he pledged, as he had throughout the campaign, to get rid of "waste and corruption." Indeed, Carazo's campaign had focused not so much on opponent Luis Alberto Monge as on his opponent's party. Appealing to what he sensed was the nation's "enormous desire for change," he lashed out at the government's expanding bureaucracy and budget. But when Carazo talked about getting rid of corruption, he usually meant expelling Vesco, the accused expatriate embezzler. He viewed Vesco's activities in Costa Rica, especially his close association with former president and PLN founder José Figueres Ferrer and with outgoing president Daniel Oduber Quirós, as reprehensible. Carazo charged that Vesco had been involved in government corruption in Costa Rica, and he vowed that he would be asked to leave Costa Rica "as quickly as possible." Vesco's application for Costa Rican citizenship was turned down in August.

He rose from the ranks to become the political leader of a partisan army division during Albania's fight against the Italian fascist and Nazi occupiers during World War II. A member of the Communist party as early as a year after its creation in November 1941, he became a member of the 11-member Politburo in 1961. He was minister of industry (1951-53), industry and mines (1955-60), and mines and geology (1960-65), a deputy premier (1965-74), and first deputy premier (1974-82). The avuncular Çarçani became premier following the mysterious death of Prime Minister Mehmet Shehu in December 1981. His government fell after crowds tore down the statue of Enver Hoxha in central Tiranë in February 1991. He was later elected to parliament and made the opening speech of Albania's first freely-elected parliament in April 1991. In 1994 he was found guilty of abuse of power and embezzlement and was sentenced to five years in jail which were commuted to house arrest because he was too ill to serve.

C. Cárdenas
Cárdenas (Solórzano), Cuauhtémoc (b. May 1, 1934, Mexico City, Mexico), chief of government of the Distrito Federal (mayor of Mexico City; 1997-99); son of Lázaro Cárdenas. He was elected to the Senate in 1976. In 1980, as a member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), he began a six-year term as governor of Michoacán. Disillusioned with PRI manoeuvres to undo reforms instituted by his father, Cárdenas split with the party in 1987. The following year he headed a coalition comprising Socialists and former Communists and made a bid for the presidency. In what Cárdenas believed to be an act of intimidation, his top campaign aide was murdered shortly before the election. While ballots were being tabulated, the government abruptly ended the count, declaring PRI candidate Carlos Salinas de Gortari president. In October 1988 he announced the formation of a new party, the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD). Cárdenas ran third in the 1994 presidential election. In retaliation for his outspoken stand against government privatization and the North American Free Trade Agreement, Salinas's government targeted Cárdenas and his supporters. From 1988 to 1994 approximately 500 activists affiliated with the PRD were murdered. Cárdenas returned, however, to clinch the 1997 Mexico City race for mayor. Promising to tackle problems never before addressed by PRI leaders, he campaigned against poverty, corruption, crime, and pollution. He won the July 6 election in a landslide, with 47% of the vote, the largest margin of victory by an opposition leader since 1929. The PRI polled 26% of the vote, followed by the right-wing National Action Party with 16%. In December he was sworn in as the first-ever elected mayor of North America's largest city. Previously, the president of Mexico had appointed the mayor. Cárdenas made a third unsuccessful attempt for the presidency in 2000. In later years he often clashed with the PRD leadership, and he resigned from the party in 2014.

Cárdenas, Jesús, governor of Tamaulipas (1848-51, 1851-52). In 1840 he was president of the "Republic of Rio Grande" which declared independence at Laredo, Texas, in January and claimed extensive territory of northern Mexico before collapsing in November.

L. Cárdenas
Cárdenas (del Río), Lázaro (b. May 21, 1895, Jiquilpan, Michoacán, Mexico - d. Oct. 19, 1970, Mexico City, Mexico), president of Mexico (1934-40). At the age of 18, he joined a branch of the revolutionary army led by Gen. Guillermo García Aragón, and within a year he had risen to the rank of captain. When the revolutionary forces split into opposing factions, he remained loyal to Venustiano Carranza, whose army triumphed in 1920. In that year Cárdenas was appointed general, the highest rank in the Mexican army, and continued to participate in military campaigns until 1929. In 1928, he was elected governor of his native state of Michoacán, serving in that position for a full term, until 1932. Cárdenas also played an important role in forming the Partido Nacional Revolucionario (PNR) in 1929, and in the following year he was chosen to be the party's president. He was minister of the interior for six weeks in 1931 and minister of war and marine for five months in 1933. It was from the latter job that he retired to become the PNR's candidate for president in the 1934 election. Although his election was assured, he spent the year between his nomination and polling day carrying out an intensive campaign. Once elected president, he moved cautiously at first. The army, the civil administration, and much of the political structure of the regime remained under the control of former president Plutarco Elías Calles. In 1936, Cárdenas felt strong enough to have Calles sent into exile in the United States. Under his agrarian reform program, Cárdenas distributed nearly twice as much land to peasants as had all of his predecessors combined. His presidential term ended in 1940, but he returned to public office to serve as minister of national defense (1943-45). A supporter of Cuba's Fidel Castro, he left the ruling party in 1961.

He was also head of the military cabinet (1951-52).

F.H. Cardoso
Cardoso, Fernando Henrique ("FHC") (b. June 18, 1931, Rio de Janeiro), president of Brazil (1995-2003). Not long after the military took control of the government in Brazil in 1964, he went into exile. He returned in 1968. Cardoso entered politics in 1986 when he won a seat as senator from São Paulo; he gained a reputation as a centrist who was willing to compromise. In 1988 he co-founded the centre-left Party of Brazilian Social Democracy, which ran on a clean-government platform. In 1992, after Pres. Fernando Collor de Mello was impeached on corruption charges and Itamar Franco took over, Cardoso resigned his Senate seat and joined the cabinet as foreign minister. In May 1993 Cardoso allowed himself to be drafted as finance minister - the fourth in 13 months. He oversaw the complicated political negotiations that produced the Real Plan, an anti-inflation package that introduced a new currency, the real. In March 1994 Cardoso announced his bid for the presidency, and he stepped down from his post as finance minister. Inflation was running at 45% in June, and when the Real Plan went into effect on July 1, Cardoso was trailing his closest opponent by 20 points. As inflation plummeted to less than 2% in September, however, his popularity soared. Many observers suspected that the business sector had held a lid on prices to boost Cardoso's campaign and, further, that painful economic restructuring loomed after the election. During his campaign Cardoso called for moving Brazil away from a state-dominated economy and toward increased foreign investment, more rapid privatization of state-owned companies, and large-scale funding of education and social services.

Carías Andino, Tiburcio (b. March 15, 1876, Tegucigalpa, Honduras - d. Dec. 23, 1969, Tegucigalpa), president of Honduras (1933-49). Active in the right-wing National Party from its inception in 1902, Carías spent parts of the following two decades in exile in El Salvador and Guatemala, but he served as governor of Copán (1907-08) and Cortés (1908-10) and was a delegate to the Federal Convention of Central America in 1921. He secured a plurality of votes in the 1923 presidential election; the Congress failed to decide the election and a brief civil war ensued in 1924, during which he claimed the executive power for some time as "first chief of the liberating revolution" (pending the taking office of Fausto Dávila as provisional president, which never occurred), but, following an interim government in which Carías was interior and justice minister, ultimately Miguel Paz Baraona, who had been his running mate, was chosen in new elections. Carías became president of the National Congress (1926-29, 1930-31). After defeat in the 1928 presidential election, he finally had success in 1932, defeating Ángel Zuñiga Huete. However, he assumed power at a time of political instability and economic depression, which he reacted to with political repression and retrenchment. During his presidency press and labour union freedoms were curtailed. A new constitution was introduced in 1936 that allowed for Carías to remain in office until 1943. Several years later his term of office was extended until 1949. He chose not to contest the 1948 presidential elections, which were won by his protégé Juan Manuel Gálvez. He attempted a comeback in the 1954 elections, but received less than a third of the vote.

Carl XII (b. June 27 [June 17, O.S.], 1682, Stockholm, Sweden - d. Dec. 11 [Nov. 30, O.S.], 1718, Fredrikshald [now Halden], Norway), king of Sweden (1697-1718). He was the son of Carl XI of Sweden and Ulrika Eleonora "the Elder" of Denmark. He assumed the throne at the age of 15, having been declared of age. In 1700 the Great Northern War broke out, with a joint invasion of Swedish territory by Denmark and Saxony. Carl initially had no desire for war himself, but when Russia joined the alliance later in the year he counter-attacked by invading Denmark, forcing them to sue for peace. He defeated a Russian army at Narva, and in the following year gained a costly victory over the Saxons on the river Dvina. Next he defeated the Saxons at Kliszow in 1702, and dethroned King Augustus II of Poland in 1704 in favour of his ally Stanislaw Leszczynski. His victories were consolidated at the Peace of Altranstädt in 1706. Carl's grand design for total Swedish dominion of the Baltic was not realized. A surprise invasion of Russia in 1707, although he almost captured the tsar, Pyotr I, resulted in a heavy defeat at Poltava in June 1709. The Swedish army surrendered and Carl retired to Turkey. He tried in vain to convince the Turks to declare war on the Russians. In 1714 he made an incognito journey across half of Europe, covering 2,000 km on horseback in 15 days to the Baltic port of Stralsund. Cornered there by a ring of enemies for a year, he escaped in December 1715 to Lund in Sweden, 15 years after he had left his homeland. Undaunted, he raised a new army to keep the Russians at bay, and in 1716 launched a preliminary attack on Norway. He now formed an ambitious plan: he would be given freedom by Russia to conquer Norway in exchange for the Baltic provinces of Sweden, and then land in Scotland to put the Jacobite James Edward Stuart, the "Old Pretender," on the British throne. But having made his treaty with the Russians and invaded Norway again in 1718, he was fatally struck by a bullet of unknown origin during the siege of the border fortress of Fredriksten, at Fredrikshald. He died unmarried, and was succeeded by his younger sister, Queen Ulrica Eleonora.

Carl XIII (b. Oct. 7, 1748, Stockholm, Sweden - d. Feb. 5, 1818, Stockholm), king of Sweden (1809-18) and (as Carl II) Norway (1814-18); son of Adolf Fredrik.

Carl XIV Johan, original name Jean-Baptiste (Jules) Bernadotte, also called (1806-10) prince de Ponte-Corvo (b. Jan. 26, 1763, Pau [now in Pyrénées-Atlantiques département], France - d. March 8, 1844, Stockholm, Sweden), king of Sweden and (as Carl III Johan) Norway (1818-44); husband of sister-in-law of José I Napoleón. He was also French ambassador to Austria (1798) and minister of war (1799).

Carl Gustaf
Carl XVI Gustaf, in full Carl Gustaf Folke Hubertus (b. April 30, 1946, Haga palace, Stockholm, Sweden), king of Sweden (1973- ). The only son of King Gustaf VI Adolf's eldest son, Prince Gustaf Adolf (who died in an air crash in 1947), Carl Gustaf became crown prince in 1950, when his grandfather acceded to the throne. He studied at military cadet schools, at the University of Uppsala, and in France and was commissioned as a naval officer in 1968. At the 1972 Munich Olympic Games he met Silvia Sommerlath (b. Dec. 23, 1943, Heidelberg, Germany), whom he married on June 19, 1976, three years after his accession, which occurred at a time when the role of the Swedish monarchy was being radically altered. Under the constitution prior to 1975, the king played a formal role in the administration of the country; for example, he presided over councils of state, signed government decisions, commanded the armed forces, and appointed someone to form a new government upon the resignation of the current administration. The new constitutional laws, enacted in 1973 and made effective on Jan. 1, 1975, relieved the king of all these duties, leaving him with a solely symbolic function. The king has three children. According to the Act of Succession of 1980, which superseded that of 1810, the eldest child of the king and queen is heir to the throne, regardless of gender. Accordingly, Crown Princess Victoria (b. July 14, 1977, Stockholm) is heir to the throne. The other children are Prince Carl Philip (b. May 13, 1979, Stockholm) and Princess Madeleine (b. June 10, 1982, Drottningholm).

Carlos I, in full Carlos Fernando Luís Maria Víctor Miguel Rafael Gabriel Gonzaga Xavier Francisco de Assis José Simão (b. Sept. 28, 1863, Lisbon, Portugal - d. Feb. 1, 1908, Lisbon), king of Portugal (1889-1908). The son of King Luís and of Maria Pia of Savoy, daughter of Vittorio Emanuele II of Italy, he married Marie Amélie of Orléans, a granddaughter of the French king Louis-Philippe, in 1886 and succeeded his father on Oct. 19, 1889. Forces generated by mistakes made before his time proved to be the undoing of this talented and intelligent man, who was also known for his paintings and oceanographical studies. At home, republicans, disaffected monarchists, and Freemasons kept up a running opposition. Popular indignation over the British ultimatum of 1890 demanding Portuguese withdrawal from certain African territories resulted in the republican revolt at Oporto (January 1891). In an effort to surmount political difficulties and bring about economic and administrative reform after a series of strikes and revolts, Carlos appointed João Franco as prime minister in May 1906 and allowed him to assume dictatorial powers soon thereafter. Although some useful reforms were effected, strong opposition was aroused by governmental coercion and controversies over extravagances and the private life of Carlos. While driving through the streets of Lisbon, the king and his eldest son, Luís Filipe, were assassinated. Carlos was succeeded by another son, Manuel II.

Carlos II, in full Carlos José Joaquín Leonardo Severo Benito Melchor Antonio Francisco Ignacio Domingo Diego Juan Félix Eusebio Vicente Agustín Isidro, byname Carlos el Hechizado (Charles the Mad) (b. Nov. 6, 1661, Madrid, Spain - d. Nov. 1, 1700, Madrid), king of Spain (1665-1700).

Carlos IV, in full Carlos Antonio Pascual Francisco Javier Juan Nepomuceno José Genaro Serafín Diego de Borbón y Sajonia (b. Nov. 11, 1748, Portici, Kingdom of Naples [now in Italy] - d. Jan. 20, 1819, Rome, Papal State [now in Italy]), king of Spain (1788-1808); son of Carlos III.

Carlos, Adelino da Palma (b. March 3, 1905, Faro, Portugal - d. Oct. 25, 1992, Lisbon, Portugal), prime minister of Portugal (1974).

Carlot, Alfred (Rolland) (b. June 11, 1959), foreign minister of Vanuatu (2011, 2011-13); nephew of Maxime Carlot Korman. He was also chargé d'affaires at the United Nations (2001-05) and minister of justice (2010-11, 2014-15), lands and natural resources (2011), and education (2015).

Carlot Korman, Maxime (b. April 26, 1941, Erakor village, Efate island, New Hebrides [now Vanuatu]), prime minister (1991-95, 1996), foreign minister (1993-95), deputy prime minister (2004), and acting president (2009) of Vanuatu. He was speaker of parliament in 1980-83, 1995-96, 2009-10, and 2010-11 and was also minister of lands and mineral resources (1999-2001, 2007-08), agriculture (2004), and infrastructure and public utilities (2004-05). Korman is an honorific title given to him by his home village in 1992.

Carlsköld, Carl, originally Carl Hultman (b. Sept. 3, 1699, Norrköping, Östergötland, Sweden - d. July 4, 1788, Västerås, Västmanland, Sweden), governor of Västmanland (1772-84). He was ennobled under the name Carlsköld in 1743.

Carlson, Arne (Helge) (b. Sept. 24, 1934, New York City), governor of Minnesota (1991-99). The Republican spent eight years in the state legislature and 12 as elected state auditor until he ran for governor in 1990. He bypassed the convention, already solidly conservative and anti-abortion, and lost to its designee Jon Grunseth in the primary 49%-32%. But in mid-October the Minneapolis Star-Tribune charged Grunseth with sexual improprieties; Grunseth hesitated, then withdrew. A Republican delegation named Carlson as the party's nominee, and for two weeks he ran against embattled Democratic incumbent Rudy Perpich. Carlson won the general 51%-47%, carrying the Twin Cities metro area, losing the rest of the state. In office, he made a liberal record, signing HealthRight, wetlands preservation, and gay rights legislation. He succeeded in keeping the Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team in Minnesota by buying the Target Center arena for $55 million. He boasted of spending more for education and cutting taxes. His personal life was often the subject of his former wife Barbara Carlson, a radio talk show host, who occasionally broadcast her program while in a hot tub. In 1994, Carlson was opposed by farmer and former legislator Allen Quist, a strong abortion opponent. Quist was endorsed by the Republican convention 69%-29%, but Carlson won the primary 66%-34%. The DFL convention endorsed John Marty, who displayed less than overwhelming strength in the primary, winning 38% to 36% for Mike Hatch and 25% for Tony Bouza. Carlson won the general 62%-33%. On his agenda for a second term were welfare reform, scaling back workmen's compensation, term limits and more education spending.

Carlsson, Bernt (Wilmar) (b. Nov. 21, 1938, Stockholm, Sweden - d. [plane crash] Dec. 21, 1988, Lockerbie, Scotland), secretary-general of the Socialist International (1976-83) and UN commissioner for Namibia (1987-88).

I. Carlsson
Carlsson, Ingvar (Gösta) (b. Nov. 9, 1934, Borås, Västra Götaland county, western Sweden), prime minister of Sweden (1986-91, 1994-96). During the period 1958-60 he was, like Olof Palme, one of "Erlander's boys," part of the group of bright young men working with Prime Minister Tage Erlander. After spending a year in the U.S. in 1961, Carlsson returned to Sweden to become chairman of the Social Democratic Youth Movement. He was elected to the Riksdag (parliament) in 1964 and three years later he graduated to the post of undersecretary in the Cabinet Office. He served in Palme's governments as minister of education (1969-73) and minister of housing (1973-76). When the Social Democrats lost power after 44 years in office, Palme gave Carlsson the job of orchestrating the party's return to power, coupled with the task of preparing a master plan to put the economy on a sounder footing. When the party returned to power in 1982, Carlsson received his reward. He became deputy prime minister and, as Palme's personal troubleshooter, occupied himself with a study of possible future strategies for the Social Democrats. When the party won again in 1985, he was appointed minister of the environment. On Palme's assassination in February 1986, Carlsson replaced him as party leader and prime minister. He pursued a predictably cautious path, his biggest triumph being victory over public-sector labour union militancy in late 1986. He lost his majority in September 1991 and resigned, but was returned in September 1994 at the head of a minority government. In 1995 he announced his intention to resign March 1996, citing personal reasons.

Carlsson, (Tord Erland) Roine (b. Dec. 10, 1937, Norrtälje, Stockholm county, Sweden - d. Aug. 25, 2020, Gustavsberg, Stockholm county), defense minister of Sweden (1985-91).

Carlsson, Stefan (Lennart) (b. April 22, 1954), governor of Kalmar (2012-16).

Carlucci, Frank (Charles, III) (b. Oct. 18, 1930, Scranton, Pa. - d. June 3, 2018, McLean, Va.), U.S. politician. He joined the U.S. Department of State as a foreign service officer in 1956. While serving in Congo (Kinshasa), he used his athletic ability to rescue U.S. citizens from mobs. In 1969 he accidentally encountered Donald Rumsfeld, director of the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) in the administration of Pres. Richard Nixon, and accepted Rumsfeld's offer of a job at OEO. He succeeded Rumsfeld as director in 1970. In 1971 he became associate director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and he was named deputy director in 1972. Caspar Weinberger, director of the OMB, came to appreciate Carlucci's skills. In 1973 Carlucci became undersecretary of health, education, and welfare - by invitation of Weinberger, who had become secretary. Carlucci later returned to the State Department as ambassador to Portugal (1975-78). He established ties with military officers who were leftist but not pro-Soviet and apparently helped them to defeat a plot by pro-Soviet officers to take over the government. In 1978 he became deputy to the director of central intelligence. Weinberger became secretary of defense in the Ronald Reagan administration in 1981 and insisted on having Carlucci as his deputy. In December 1986 Reagan appointed Carlucci as assistant for national security affairs. Carlucci tried to mediate rivalries between government agencies. On Nov. 23, 1987, Carlucci succeeded Weinberger as secretary of defense, having been nominated by Reagan on November 5 and confirmed by the Senate by a vote of 91-1 on November 20. He was considered less of a hardliner than Weinberger, and before taking office had secured the resignation of one of Weinberger's most vocally anti-Soviet aides.

Carlzon, Thomas (Gustav) (b. Sept. 15, 1955), governor of Kalmar (2017- ).

A. Carmona

A.Ó. Carmona
Carmona, Anthony (Thomas Aquinas) (b. March 7, 1953, Palo Seco, Trinidad and Tobago), president of Trinidad and Tobago (2013-18).

Carmona, António Óscar de Fragoso (b. Nov. 24, 1869, Lisbon, Portugal - d. April 18, 1951, Lisbon), war minister (1923, 1926), foreign minister (1926), prime minister (1926-28), and president (1926-51) of Portugal.

P. Carmona
Carmona Estanga, Pedro (Francisco) (b. July 6, 1941, Barquisimeto, Lara state, Venezuela), president of Venezuela (2002). As head of Venezuela's largest business association, Fedecámaras, from 2001, he often clashed with left-leaning president Hugo Chávez. Carmona was installed as president in a short-lived coup in April 2002 by rebel military officers. When Chávez was restored to power, Carmona was put under house arrest and faced trial for rebellion and conspiracy. He escaped house arrest and fled to the Colombian ambassador's residence in Caracas. Colombia, which had stood virtually alone among Latin American countries in applauding the coup, granted him asylum on May 26; he arrived in Bogotá on May 29. In 2007 Venezuela requested his extradition.

Carnahan, A(lbert) S(idney) J(ohnson) (b. Jan. 9, 1897, near Ellsinore, Mo. - d. March 24, 1968, Rochester, Minn.), U.S. politician. He was a member of the House of Representatives (1945-47, 1949-61) and ambassador to Sierra Leone (1961-63).

M. Carnahan
Carnahan, Mel(vin Eugene) (b. Feb. 11, 1934, Birchtree, Mo. - d. Oct. 16, 2000, Jefferson County, Mo.), governor of Missouri (1993-2000); son of A.S.J. Carnahan. The Democrat was elected to the legislature in 1962, and was majority leader in 1965-67. In 1980, he was elected state treasurer and served four years; in 1988, he was elected lieutenant governor. In 1992, he won the Democratic gubernatorial primary over St. Louis Mayor Vince Schoemehl, 55%-34%. In the general, Carnahan won over Republican William Webster 59%-41%. There is a certain similarity between Carnahan's record as an executive and Bill Clinton's as president. In 1993, Carnahan got his education reform and tax increase through the Democratic legislature; in 1994 the legislature rejected his attempt to require health insurers to disregard preexisting conditions and make policies portable between jobs. He spent much effort on avoiding federal control, to counter what some considered draconian federal sanctions imposed on the St. Louis area under the Clean Air Act. But his attempt to negotiate with the EPA proved unsuccessful, and the state attorney general took the case to court. Carnahan's job rating in early 1995 was much higher than Clinton's and one well-known challenger, former secretary of state Roy Blunt, decided not to run. His 1996 opponent was Auditor Margaret Kelly. In 2000 Carnahan, his son Randy, and aide Chris Sifford died in a plane crash while heading to a campaign event for Carnahan's closely watched race for the U.S. Senate. Carnahan's name remained on the ballot because a deadline for changes had passed and ballots were being printed. In the election, Carnahan became the first dead person to be elected to the Senate. His widow Jean was appointed to take his seat.

Carnarvon, Henry Howard Molyneux Herbert, (4th) Earl of (b. June 24, 1831, London, England - d. June 28, 1890, London), lord lieutenant of Ireland (1885-86). He was also British secretary of state for the colonies (1866-67, 1874-78). He succeeded as earl in 1849.

[now Yekaterinburg, Russia]), foreign minister of Lithuania (1924-25).

Carnell, Kate, byname of Anne Katherine Carnell (b. May 30, 1955, Brisbane, Qld.), chief minister of the Australian Capital Territory (1995-2000). She joined the Liberal Party in 1991, was elected to the Legislative Assembly from Molonglo on March 20, 1992 (reelected on March 2, 1995), and became leader of the Liberal Party (and thus leader of the opposition) on April 21, 1993. On March 9, 1995, she became chief minister, and on March 15 also treasurer and minister for health and community care; on Feb. 3, 1997, she took the additional portfolio of minister for business and employment.

Aug. 2, 1823, Magdeburg, Prussia [now in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany]), member of the Committee of Public Safety (1794, 1794-95) and president (1794) of the National Convention, member (1795-97) and president (1796, 1797) of the Executive Directory, minister of war (1800) and interior (1815), and member of the Commission of Government (1815) of France. He was made comte (count) in 1815.

S. Carnot
Carnot, (Marie François) Sadi (b. Aug. 11, 1837, Limoges, France - d. June 25, 1894, Lyon, France), president of France (1887-94); grandnephew of Pierre-Antoine, comte Dupont de l'Étang. He was the son of Hippolyte Carnot, a leftist deputy who was a vigorous opponent of the July Monarchy (after 1830), and grandson of Lazare Carnot, the famous "Organizer of Victory" of the French Revolution. After service as a government engineer at Annecy, he was named commissioner of Normandy with responsibility for organizing resistance there in the Franco-German War (1870-71). After a brief term as prefect of Seine-Inférieure he was elected to the National Assembly from the Côte-d'Or département, and later to the Chamber of Deputies from Beaune. Sitting with the Left Republicans, he concentrated on issues concerning public works and railroad development. In October 1878 he was appointed undersecretary of public works, and in 1880-81 he was minister. He served as vice president of the Chamber in 1883-85, and thereafter served as minister of commerce and finance. After the resignation of Jules Grévy in 1887, he was elected president of the republic without actively aspiring to the office. The Carnot presidency was marked by the plots of the political adventurer Gen. Georges Boulanger, labour agitation, anarchist movements, and the Panama Canal scandals (1892). Yet he managed to retain his popularity through 10 different governments formed in the course of seven years. On June 24, 1894, after delivering a speech at a Lyon exposition, he was fatally stabbed by the Italian anarchist Sante Caserio (though he did not die until past midnight).

Carnot-Feulins, Claude (Marie) Carnot, dit (b. July 15, 1755, Nolay [now in Côte-d'Or département], France - d. July 17, 1836, Autun, Saône-et-Loire, France), interior minister of France (1815); brother of Lazare, comte Carnot.

Carol I, original name Karl Eitel Friedrich Zephyrin Ludwig Prinz von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (b. April 20, 1839, Sigmaringen, Prussia [now in Baden-Württemberg, Germany] - d. Oct. 10, 1914, Sinaia, Romania), prince (1866-81) and king (1881-1914) of Romania. In 1864 he served as an officer of the Prussian army in the war against Denmark. With the tacit approval of his cousin, the French emperor Napoléon III, he was offered the throne of Romania after the deposition of the reigning prince, Alexandru Ioan I (February 1866), and in April 1866 was elected prince by plebiscite. In 1869 he married the princess Elisabeth of Wied, who later gained fame as a prolific writer under the pseudonym Carmen Sylva. His Germanophile sentiments caused him to be domestically unpopular during the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71), and in 1871 unrest almost forced his abdication. In 1877, Romania joined Russia in a war against the Ottoman Empire, and he regained popular support for his military leadership at the Battle of Plevna. Despite previous assurances to the contrary, Russia at the Congress of Berlin (1878) took southern Bessarabia from Romania, allowing her in return the poorer Dobruja. However, Romania was now declared fully independent of the Ottoman Empire, and in May 1881 he was crowned as Romania's first king. In 1883 he concluded an alliance with Germany and Austria-Hungary, which remained a closely guarded state secret until the outbreak of World War I. In internal politics, he cooperated with the Liberal Party leader Ion Bratianu until 1888, but thereafter Liberals and Conservatives alternated in office. He successfully promoted urban industrial development and financial interests and built up the military establishment, but neglected rural problems and crushed a peasant rebellion in 1907 at the cost of several thousand lives. He favoured entrance into World War I on the side of the Central Powers but accepted the decision of the Crown Council to declare neutrality; his successor (his nephew King Ferdinand I) declared for the Allies in 1916.

Carol II (b. Oct. 15, 1893, Sinaia, Romania - d. April 4, 1953, Estoril, Portugal), king of Romania (1930-40); son of Ferdinand I (1865-1927).

Caron, Sir (Joseph Philippe René) Adolphe (b. Dec. 24, 1843, Québec, Canada East [now Quebec] - d. April 20, 1908, Montreal, Que.), defence minister of Canada (1880-92); knighted 1885. He was also postmaster-general (1892-96).

Carossino, Angelo (b. Feb. 21, 1929, Genoa, Italy - d. July 25, 2020), president of Liguria (1975-79).

Carp, Petre P. (b. June 29, 1837, Iasi, Moldavia [now in Romania] - d. June 19, 1919, Tibanesti, Vaslui county, Romania), foreign minister (1870, 1888-89) and prime minister and finance minister (1900-01, 1910-12) of Romania. He was also minister of culture and education (1870, 1876) and agriculture, industry, commerce, and domains (1888, 1891-95), diplomatic agent to Austria-Hungary (1871-73) and Italy (1873), and minister to Austria-Hungary (1882-84).

Carpelan, Johan Fredrik friherre (b. Dec. 14, 1745, Halikko socken [now part of Salo], Finland - d. Dec. 27, 1808, Göteborg, Sweden), governor of Uleåborg (1785-1800) and Göteborg och Bohus (1800-08); brother of Simon Wilhelm friherre Carpelan. He was made friherre (baron) in 1790.

Carper, Tom, byname of Thomas Richard Carper (b. Jan. 23, 1947, Beckley, W.Va.), governor of Delaware (1993-2001). In 1976, the Democrat was elected state treasurer; he ran for Congress in 1982 and beat a scandal-tarred incumbent. In the House, Carper had a moderate voting record and worked to let banks into the securities business and to prevent ocean sludge dumping, both causes supported by Delaware constituencies. After 10 years in Congress, Carper was the favourite for governor when Republican Mike Castle had to step down in 1992 after two terms; with Castle elected to Congress, these two politicians of different parties changed places, seemingly postponing their inevitable showdown for a Senate seat. Carper won his primary with 89% and the general with 65% and pledged a partnership with Democratic Lieutenant Governor Ruth Ann Minner. After two years, he was proud that 20,000 more Delawareans had health insurance, and he also claimed credit for placing 2,400 welfare recipients in full- or part-time employment and removing 1,300 people from the rolls altogether. He took an active approach to creating and preserving Delaware jobs, lobbying General Motors to keep its Boxwood plant, which employed 3,000 people, open and quadrupling the state's economic development fund. In 1996 he beat Republican state treasurer Janet Rzewnicki for a second term, despite a smear campaign from an out-of-state GOP group that alleged Carper beat his wife and was planning a divorce. In 2000 he was elected to the U.S. Senate.

V. Carranza
Carranza (de la Garza), Venustiano (b. Dec. 29, 1859, Cuatro Ciénegas, Mexico - d. May 21, 1920, Tlaxcalantongo, Mexico), president of Mexico (1915-20). He became active in local and state politics in 1877. In 1910, as governor of Coahuila, he joined the struggle of Francisco Madero against Porfirio Díaz and in 1913 led the forces against Victoriano Huerta. After Huerta fled in 1914, Carranza's Constitutionalist Army began to splinter. Rebels led by Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata opposed his provisional government, demanding immediate social reforms. He secured his position as provisional president, however, when his army, led by Gen. Álvaro Obregón, defeated Villa's forces at Celaya in April 1915. Only reluctantly did Carranza accept the provisions of the 1917 constitution establishing basic reforms in landownership, control of natural resources, and labour and social legislation. When he became the constitutional president on May 1, 1917, he did little to effectuate those provisions, and his term was marked by continued difficulties with Villa and Zapata, serious financial problems, and general social unrest brought on by his reluctance to institute far-reaching reforms. An ardent nationalist, he was involved in serious controversies with the U.S. He was instrumental in keeping Mexico neutral in World War I. In 1920 he attempted to force the election of his chosen successor, Ignacio Bonillas, despite opposition from his more radical generals. Obregón led an armed rebellion in April, and Carranza fled the capital before the rebels entered it on May 7. When he headed for Veracruz with government records and treasure, his train was attacked. With a few followers, he fled on horseback into the mountains. On the night of May 20/21 he was betrayed and murdered.

Carrera (Turcios), José Rafael (b. Oct. 25, 1814, Guatemala City, New Spain [now in Guatemala] - d. April 14, 1865, Guatemala City), president of Guatemala (1844-48, 1851-65). He attained prominence as leader of an insurrection against liberal governments in Guatemala and the Central American Federation, headed, respectively, by Mariano Gálvez and Francisco Morazán. The original grievance was a succession of unpopular reforms, especially anti-clerical measures, which alienated the rural population and brought to their support elements of the clergy and of the old aristocracy. Certain disaffected liberals cooperated with the rebels to force Gálvez from office in 1838. Carrera followed nationalistic policies. On April 17, 1839, Guatemala withdrew from the federation. In March 1840 at Guatemala City, Carrera defeated Morazán's last desperate effort to reassert federal control and drove him into exile. Separatist movements within the state, however, he crushed mercilessly, overwhelming the armies of Los Altos (the western departments of the country which had seceded and formed a sixth Central American state) in 1840. He first exerted his influence through nominal heads of state, but in December 1844 an obedient council elected him president. Liberals briefly forced him to resign in 1848, but they were unable to consolidate their position. Conservatives managed Carrera's return from exile in 1849 and reinstalled him as president in 1851. In 1854 he was given life tenure with the privilege of choosing his successor. His period of dominance, known as "the thirty-year regime," was an unrelieved absolutism. He ameliorated Guatemala's position with foreign creditors and improved roads and ports, but had only moderate success in diversifying Guatemala's commercial monoculture (cochineal) and allowed education to languish. He restored the church to its ancient position of power and prestige; in 1852 he made Guatemala the first independent Latin American nation to sign a concordat with the Holy See. He intervened repeatedly in neighbouring countries to eliminate unfriendly liberal governments, and in turn he had to defend his own regime against their attacks, singly or in combination. In 1859 he reached an agreement with Britain on the boundaries of British Honduras, the interpretation of which remained disputed.

Carrillo (Solares), Santiago (José) (b. Jan. 18, 1915, Gijón, Spain - d. Sept. 18, 2012, Madrid, Spain), secretary-general of the Spanish Communist Party (1960-82). He joined the party at the time of the Popular Front's electoral victory in Spain in 1936. He was in charge of public order in Madrid, and some held him responsible for the massacre of prisoners at Paracuellos in November of that year. After the Spanish Civil War he went to the Americas, and he later spent many years in Paris. He participated in the founding (July 1974) of the Junta Democrática Española, which partially united the opposition to the Franco regime, and in March 1977 he helped found the Coordinación Democrática, which incorporated the opposition parties and Spain's regional autonomy movements. After its legalization in 1977, the Spanish Communist Party maintained a low profile while winning votes and parliamentary seats. Carrillo received wide publicity from his book "Eurocomunismo" y Estado (1977; "Eurocommunism" and the State), which espoused the independence of national Communist parties. He cooperated in the drafting of Spain's new constitution and supported the government in its attempts to cope with economic difficulties and to overcome terrorism. He favoured working for "a plurality of political parties and for democratic alternation between the majority and the minority," and he supported the Basque and Catalan sections of the Communist Party in their desire to take an independent stance based on the needs of their own regions.

He has also been ambassador of Trinidad and Tobago to the Caribbean Community (2011- ). He was knighted by Antigua and Barbuda in 2010.

Baron Carrington
Carrington (of Upton), Peter Alexander Rupert Carington, (6th) Baron (1797 U.K. peerage), (6th) Baron Carrington (of Bulcot Lodge) (1796 Irish peerage), Baron Carington of Upton (1999 life peerage) (b. June 6, 1919, London, England - d. July 9, 2018), British politician; grandnephew of Charles Robert Wynn-Carrington, Marquess of Lincolnshire. In 1938 he inherited a peerage and a place in the House of Lords. After service in World War II, he became a junior minister under Winston Churchill. He was high commissioner to Australia (1956-59) and first lord of the Admiralty (1959-63). He entered Alexander Douglas-Home's cabinet in 1963 as minister without portfolio and, after the Conservative defeat in the general election of 1964, led the opposition in the House of Lords. With the Conservatives back in power in 1970, he became defense secretary and, in the last days of the Edward Heath government, energy secretary (1974). One of Heath's closest confidants, he was described as "Ted's troubleshooter." When a Conservative government under Margaret Thatcher was formed in 1979, Carrington became foreign secretary. His charm and diplomatic skills, not least with the prime minister herself, enabled him to achieve a negotiated independence for Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and an end to the bloody civil war there in 1979-80. He then turned his attention to the Middle East and at the same time sought negotiated solutions to Britain's residual colonial problems, which included the Falkland Islands. While his back was turned in April 1982, the Argentines invaded the Falklands. He resigned his post amid harsh criticism of his misreading of the intentions of the Argentine government. Carrington became secretary-general of NATO on June 25, 1984, and served until 1988. He emphasized the importance of communication with the Soviet Union, believing that issue to be central to the restoration of public confidence in NATO.

Carrión (Mora), (Manuel) Benjamín (b. April 20, 1897, Loja, Ecuador - d. March 8, 1979, Quito, Ecuador), Ecuadorian politician. Also known as a writer, he was minister of education (1932-33) and ambassador to Mexico (1933-34, 1968), Colombia (1937-39), and Chile (1948-49).

Carstens, Karl (Walter) (b. Dec. 14, 1914, Bremen, Germany - d. May 30, 1992, Meckenheim, Germany), president of West Germany (1979-84). He joined the Nazi party in 1940 but never was an active member of the party; he also had been a member of the SA, the Nazi paramilitary organization, in 1933-35. He served in an army anti-aircraft unit in World War II, and after the war he was cleared by an Allied denazification court. He represented Bremen in the new central government from 1949 until 1954, when he was chosen to represent West Germany in the Council of Europe. Three years later he was one of the architects of the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Economic Community. As a member of Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), Carstens served as state secretary of foreign affairs (1960-66), deputy defense minister (1966-67), and head of the chancellor's office (1968-69). In 1972 he was elected to the Bundestag (parliament), where he served as chairman of the joint parliamentary group of Christian Democrat and Christian Social Union (CSU) members (1973-76). He occupied a position in the CDU somewhat to the right of centre. His conservatism put him on good terms with the Bavarian CSU - an asset at all times, but especially when the two parties were on the brink of breaking their alliance. In December 1976 he was elected president, or speaker, of the Bundestag, a post he held until he became chief of state in 1979. Despite controversy over his nomination because of his Nazi affiliation, he was an effective and popular president. He retired from public office in 1984 at the end of his term.

Jimmy Carter
Carter, Jimmy, byname of James Earl Carter, Jr. (b. Oct. 1, 1924, Plains, Ga.), president of the United States (1977-81). The Democrat won election to the Georgia state Senate in 1962 and was reelected in 1964. He won the governorship of Georgia in 1970. In his inaugural address he announced that "the time for racial discrimination is over" and proceeded to open Georgia's government offices to blacks and women. He announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president in 1974, just before his term as governor ended. Though lacking a national political base or major backing, he managed through tireless and systematic campaigning to assemble a broad constituency whose votes enabled him to win the Democratic nomination in July 1976. He chose the liberal U.S. senator Walter F. Mondale of Minnesota as his running mate and defeated the incumbent Republican president, Gerald R. Ford, in November 1976, winning 51% of the popular vote and garnering 297 electoral votes to Ford's 240. In foreign affairs, although Carter's championship of international human rights received prominent attention, his major achievements were on the more pragmatic level of patient diplomacy. Despite the apparent failure of his domestic policies and the ongoing Iran hostage crisis, Carter won the Democratic nomination in 1980. But public confidence in Carter's executive abilities had fallen to an irretrievable low, and in the elections held that November he was overwhelmingly defeated by Republican nominee Ronald Reagan, winning only 41% of the popular vote. Carter later served as a sort of diplomat-without-portfolio in various conflicts in a number of countries - including Nicaragua, Panama, Ethiopia, and Haiti - and was known for his work with the housing charity Habitat for Humanity. He was awarded the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize. In 2019, at 94, he became the longest-living U.S. president ever.

In a 1998 speech in committee he was talking about "stunts" pulled by the Labour opposition and, when trying to say "cunning stunt," made a spoonerism of it which had the chairman almost fall out of his chair. In 2013 he resigned the high commissioner's post to run for mayor of Far North district; he was elected to a third term in 2019.

Carter, Sir John (Gregorio) (b. Jan. 27, 1919, Cane Grove Village, East Coast Demerara, British Guiana [now Guyana] - d. Feb. 23, 2005, Bethesda, Md.), Guyanese diplomat; knighted 1966.

He was commissioned second lieutenant of the U.S. Army in 1930, and advanced through the ranks to major general in 1953. He was a combat engineer in World War II and was chief engineer of the II Corps in the Mediterranean under Gen. Omar Bradley and chief engineer of the 1st Army for Normandy invasion and European campaign. Carter was appointed chief engineer of the 3rd U.S. Army from 1948 to 1951. He served as Canal Zone governor for a short year and a half. During that time, he carried forward a number of programs begun by his predecessors. A project to widen the Panama Canal continued, the Thatcher Ferry bridge took shape, the first of the new locks towing locomotives arrived, three new towboats were ordered and plans were made to convert the canal's Marine Traffic Control Center to an electronic operation. Under his tenure, new methods of locks overhauls were studied to reduce time lost while chambers were drained for maintenance. A very visible leader, Carter traveled widely throughout Panama seeking to improve U.S. relations with the Panamanian people and their leaders. A group of Panamanian friends presented him with a gold medal and hailed him as a "Friend of Panama." Carter earned a Distinguished Service Medal. After retiring from active duty, he was senior engineering adviser of the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington, D.C.

Elected in 1896 to the Belgian House of Representatives as a member of the Catholic Party's reform-oriented left wing, he served as minister of justice (1911-18) and helped secure passage of child-welfare legislation (1912). Subsequently, he served as prime minister and interior minister (1920-21) and minister of social welfare (1932-34). He was later appointed president of the Supreme Court of the Belgian-Luxembourg Economic Council and was the Belgian delegate to the League of Nations (1928-35). In 1945 he reorganized the Catholic Party as the Social Christian Party. Serving as minister without portfolio (1949-50) and minister of justice (1950), he devoted much effort to an unsuccessful attempt to return the exiled Belgian king Léopold III to power.

Carvel, Elbert N(ostrand) (b. Feb. 9, 1910, Shelter Island, N.Y. - d. Feb. 6, 2005, Laurel, Del.), governor of Delaware (1949-53, 1961-65). In 1944 he ran for lieutenant governor and won. Four years later, he ran for governor, campaigning on the need for more and better schools, along with better roads and state infrastructure. He defeated Hyland F. George and became only the second Democratic governor to win election in Delaware in the 20th century. There were some milestones in Carvel's first term - the first span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge opened to traffic, and the state Supreme Court was established in 1951 - but he found it difficult to advance his objectives in a Republican-controlled legislature. When he sought reelection in 1952, he and many of his fellow Democrats nationwide were swamped by the incoming Republican tide led by Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was elected president. Carvel lost the gubernatorial race to J. Caleb Boggs, and he suffered another defeat when he took on U.S. Sen. John Williams in 1958. But in 1960 he was elected governor once more, defeating Lt.Gov. John Rollins, amid the Democratic tide that sent John F. Kennedy to the White House. A champion of civil rights at a time when many supported segregation, he appointed the first Human Relations Commission, which recommended a public-accommodations law that Carvel pushed through a reluctant General Assembly in 1963.

Carver, John (b. c. 1576, Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire, England - d. April 15, 1621, Plymouth, Mass.), governor of Plymouth (1620-21). He joined the Separatists, a Puritan religious group. They were critical of the Church of England and also believed that the government was too tolerant towards those who were guilty of adultery, drunkenness, and breaching the Sabbath. The Separatists were persecuted, and in 1608 Carver and others decided to emigrate to Holland, which had a reputation of tolerance towards dissenters. But Carver and his friends soon became disillusioned with their new home, and in 1620 they decided to emigrate to North America. Carver obtained financial backing for the trip and chartered the Mayflower, which was boarded by 102 people in Delft harbour. After crossing the Atlantic they decided to settle at a place they called Plymouth in Massachusetts Bay. He was elected governor on Nov. 21, 1620, after the signing of the Mayflower Compact. His major accomplishment was the establishment of a treaty of alliance between the Indian chief Massasoit and James I of England.

Baron Carver
Carver (of Shackleford), (Richard) Michael (Power) Carver, Baron (b. April 24, 1915, Bletchingley, Surrey - d. Dec. 9, 2001, Fareham, Hampshire), British military officer. He began moving up the ranks with a commission in the Royal Tank Corps in 1935 and went on to become chief of the General Staff (1971-73) and chief of the Defence Staff (1973-76). He was chief of staff in Kenya in 1954 during the Mau Mau rebellion, which led to Kenya's independence from Britain in 1963. He commanded UN peacekeeping forces in Cyprus in 1964, but later criticized them as impeding progress toward a political settlement. He was Britain's resident commissioner in Rhodesia in 1977-78. As a member of the House of Lords, he opposed Britain's decision to buy Trident submarines with nuclear-armed missiles. In a Lords debate on Britain's nuclear weapons in 1997, he tartly asked a government minister "who is supposed to be deterred by the deterrent to which she referred, and from doing what?" He was a member of the Canberra Commission on the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, created by the Australian government, which released a report in 1996 outlining a plan for nuclear disarmament. "The destructiveness of nuclear weapons is so great, and their use so catastrophic, that they have no military utility against a comparably equipped opponent other than the belief that they deter such an opponent from using his nuclear weapons," he said. "Therefore, their elimination would remove that justification for their retention. Their use against a non-nuclear opponent is politically and morally indefensible, as history has shown." He was also a critic of NATO. In a Lords debate he urged abolition of the NATO command, saying it existed only to camouflage the reality that the United States commands the allied forces. He was knighted in 1966 and created a life peer in 1977.

Casa Irujo, Carlos Fernando Martínez de Irujo y Tacón (Erice y Gámiz), (I) marqués de (b. Nov. 4, 1763, Cartagena, Spain - d.

He was also minister of transport, communications, tourism, and sport (1993-98), territory, environment, and agriculture (1998-2000), and justice, information, and research (2008-12) and secretary-general of the Socialist Party (1999-2002).

Casardi, Alberico (Aubrey) (b. Feb. 3, 1903, Siena, Italy - d. 1979), Italian diplomat. He was permanent representative to the United Nations (1955-56), acting secretary-general of NATO (1961), and ambassador to Belgium (1963-65) and Japan (1965-68).

Casaroli, Agostino Cardinal (b. Nov. 24, 1914, Castel San Giovanni, Piacenza province, Italy - d. June 9, 1998, Rome, Italy), secretary of the Council for the Public Affairs of the Church (1967-79) and secretary of state (1979-90) of Vatican City. He went to the Accademia Pontificia, the school for Vatican diplomats. The breakthrough in his career came in 1961, when Pope John XXIII, detecting signs of détente in Communist attitudes, sought ways of entering into contact. Casaroli was sent to Vienna to head the Vatican delegation at a conference on diplomatic relations; he was back again two years later for another conference on consular relations. He made his first contacts with Communist diplomats and henceforward was identified with the Vatican's Ostpolitik. Some of the landmarks along the way were the negotiation of a modus vivendi with Yugoslavia in 1966, the signing of the Treaty on the Non-proliferation of Nuclear Weapons in Moscow in 1971, and a notable speech at the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe at Helsinki in July 1973. He visited Eastern Europe many times, concentrating on establishing the freedom of the church to appoint its own bishops and then on the right to teach religion to children and students. Casaroli was sometimes accused of weakness in his dealings with Communists, but the election of a Polish pope in October 1978 changed the situation. John Paul II could not be accused of weakness, and his appointment (April 30, 1979) of Casaroli as secretary of state, the number-two post in the Vatican, was a mark of confidence. Casaroli was made a cardinal at the consistory of June 30, 1979.

Casas (Castañeda), José Joaquín (b. Feb. 24, 1866, Chiquinquirá, Boyacá, Colombia - d. Oct. 8, 1951, Bogotá, Colombia), acting foreign minister of Colombia (1902). He was minister of education (1901-03).

Baron Casey
Casembroot, Guus de, byname of Auguste François Charles de Casembroot (b. Dec. 17, 1906, Middelburg - d. Feb. 10, 1965, Utrecht), queen's commissioner of Zeeland (1944-45, 1948-65).

Casey, Albert V(incent) (b. Feb. 28, 1920, Boston, Mass. - d. July 10, 2004, Dallas, Texas), U.S. postmaster general (1986). He was CEO of American Airlines in 1974-85.

Casey, Bob, byname of Robert Patrick Casey, Jr. (b. April 13, 1960, Scranton, Pa.), U.S. politician; son of Robert P. Casey. He has been U.S. senator from Pennsylvania (2007- ).

Casey (of Berwick in the State of Victoria and Commonwealth of Australia and of the City of Westminster), Richard Gardiner Casey, Baron (b. Aug. 29, 1890, Brisbane, Qld. - d. June 17, 1976, Berwick, Vic.), governor of Bengal (1944-46) and foreign minister (1951-60) and governor-general (1965-69) of Australia. He was created a life peer in 1960 and knighted (G.C.M.G.) in 1965.

R.P. Casey
Casey, Robert P(atrick) (b. Jan. 9, 1932, Jackson Heights, Queens, New York City - d. May 30, 2000, Scranton, Pa.), governor of Pennsylvania (1987-95). He started his public career in 1962 when he was elected to the state Senate at age 31. He was endorsed for governor for the 1966 primary but lost. In 1968, Casey was elected state auditor general and in 1970 again received the party nod for governor, but again lost the primary. Despite gaining a reputation as a watchdog for taxpayers while auditor general between 1969 and 1977, Casey could not convert that trust to a gubernatorial victory. He lost in the 1978 primary while another Bob Casey, a Pittsburgh school teacher, apparently fooled voters and won the lieutenant governor's primary. In 1986, Casey finally exorcized the ghosts of primaries past and defeated Philadelphia District Attorney Ed Rendell for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. With the help of a then unknown political consultant, Casey used a bitingly negative television ad to ensure a narrow gubernatorial win that November. The consultant, James Carville, went on to help Bill Clinton win the presidency in 1992. Casey was reelected handily in 1990. He was ineligible to run for a third consecutive term in 1994. As governor, Casey prided himself on overseeing a frugal government with a caring touch. He relentlessly berated his party and its 1992 presidential candidate, Clinton, for abandoning its traditional constituencies with what Casey called an abortion-on-demand philosophy. He made headlines in 1992 when he was denied a chance to speak at the Democratic National Convention. And in March 1995, he formed an exploratory committee to challenge Clinton for the 1996 nomination, only to drop the effort a month later.

W. Casey
Casey, William (Joseph) (b. March 13, 1913, Elmhurst, Queens, New York City - d. May 6, 1987, Glen Cove, N.Y.), CIA director (1981-87). During World War II he worked in Europe (1941-46) with the Office of Strategic Studies (forerunner of the CIA) to drop agents behind Nazi lines. After conducting research for Richard M. Nixon's 1968 presidential campaign, Casey helped the new president by establishing the Citizens Committee for Peace with Security. Casey later served as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (1971-73), under secretary of state for economic affairs (1973-74), president and chairman of the Export-Import Bank (1974-75), and a member of the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (1976). He served as manager of Ronald Reagan's presidential campaign in 1980. He was named director of central intelligence in 1981, and under his leadership the agency built up its ability to act militarily and politically outside the U.S. Covert action increased in places such as Afghanistan, Central America, and Angola, and the agency stepped up its support for various anti-Communist insurgent organizations. During his tenure the agency began providing the contras with military assistance and clandestine training before such aid was outlawed by Congress in 1984. He was viewed as a pivotal figure in detailing the role of the CIA in the Iran-contra affair, in which weapons were sold by the U.S. to Iran and money from the sale was funneled to the Nicaraguan contras (in possible violation of U.S. law). Due to illness, his crucial testimony was never heard, and his death occurred less than 24 hours after the congressional hearings on the affair began.

Cash, Sir Gerald (Christopher) (b. May 28, 1917, Nassau, Bahamas - d. Jan. 6, 2003), governor-general of The Bahamas (1979-88); knighted 1977.

Cashin, Sir Michael Patrick (b. Sept. 29, 1864, Cape Broyle, Newfoundland - d. Aug. 30, 1926, St. John's, Newfoundland), prime minister of Newfoundland (1919). He began his political career in 1893 with his election as an independent Member of the House of Assembly for Ferryland District. He was reelected in 1897. In 1900 and 1904 Cashin ran as a Liberal and was again elected in Ferryland. In the elections of 1908, 1909, and 1913 Cashin was elected as a member of the People's Party for Ferryland. From March 1909 Cashin served as minister of finance and customs. He was knighted in 1918. On May 22, 1919, Cashin was asked by the governor to form a new administration. As well as accepting the office of prime minister, Cashin retained his cabinet post of finance and customs. For the next election Cashin changed the name of his party from the People's Party to the Liberal-Progressives. His major opponent, Richard A. Squires, resigned his Legislative Council seat to lead the Liberal Reform Party, which he was instrumental in forming. The election was held on Nov. 3, 1919, and Cashin was elected in Ferryland for the eighth time. His party was elected to 12 seats and the Squires party elected 13. From 1919 to 1923 Cashin was opposition leader and a vocal critic of the administration. It was only in 1923, because of ill-health, that he surrendered the leadership of the Liberal-Progressive Party to John R. Bennett. After representing Ferryland for over 25 years Cashin chose to run in 1923 as a Liberal-Labour-Progressive candidate for the district of St. John's West, to try to break the Liberal administration's hold over the district. He was elected, and his son Peter Cashin was elected in his father's old district of Ferryland. Continuing ill-health forced Cashin to retire in 1924.

Casimir, Fernand Georges Gaston (Émile Robert) (b. Sept. 4, 1896, Arces, Charente-Inférieure [now Charente-Maritime], France - d. Aug. 24, 1985, Châteaulin, Finistère, France), resident commissioner of the New Hebrides (1935-37) and acting lieutenant governor of Niger (1952-53).

P.R. Casimir

J. Casimir-Perier
Casimir-Perier, Jean (Paul Pierre), original surname (until March 14, 1874) Perier (b. Nov. 8, 1847, Paris, France - d. March 11, 1907, Paris), prime minister and foreign minister (1893-94) and president (1894-95) of France; son of Auguste Casimir-Perier. He served as a captain during the Franco-German War (1870-71). In 1876 he was elected to the Chamber of Deputies as a Left Republican from Aube département, serving as the chamber's vice president (1890-92) and president (1893). In December 1893, he formed his own cabinet, which fell within six months because of his inability to cope with anarchist terrorism and the vexing church-state issue. Casimir-Perier returned to the presidency of the chamber (June 1894) and in the wake of the assassination of Sadi Carnot was elected (June 27, 1894) president of the Third Republic. Unable to control his premier, Charles Dupuy, and faced with the mounting fury of the Dreyfus affair, he quickly became a target for the political left. His most vigorous assailant, the journalist Alfred Gérault-Richard, was convicted of slander, but then the Socialist leader Jean Jaurès picked up the cudgel. Gérault-Richard's release by the Chamber of Deputies proved so embarrassing that, after only six months in office, Casimir-Perier resigned.

Casimiro Castro, Pablo R(afael) (b. June 29, 1933, Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic - d. Jan. 19, 2010, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic), Dominican Republic diplomat. He was permanent representative to the United Nations (1978).

Cass, Lewis (b. Oct. 9, 1782, Exeter, N.H. - d. June 17, 1866, Detroit, Mich.), U.S. presidential candidate (1848). In 1806 he was elected to the Ohio legislature. During the War of 1812 he rose from the rank of colonel of volunteers to brigadier general in the regular army. He was governor of Michigan Territory from 1813 to 1831. As such he was also superintendent of Indian affairs for the territory, and this remained for several years the most important part of his duties. As secretary of war in Pres. Andrew Jackson's cabinet (1831-36), he directed the conduct of the Black Hawk and Seminole wars. For the next six years he served as minister to France. As a member of the U.S. Senate (1845-48, 1849-57), Cass became a leader of the 1846 bloc demanding the "reannexation" of all the Oregon country south of latitude 54°40´ N or war with England. He supported Pres. James K. Polk's administration during the Mexican War (1846-48) and opposed the Wilmot Proviso, an anti-slavery proposal applying to land acquired from Mexico. In the 1848 presidential campaign, Cass was the Democratic nominee but was defeated by the Whig candidate, Zachary Taylor. He served as secretary of state (1857-60) under Pres. James Buchanan, but he retired from the post when the president refused to take a firmer stance against the secession of the Southern states.

Entering the army in 1921, he was chief of operations of the Brazilian expeditionary force in Italy during World War II. In 1962 he became a full general. As army chief of staff, he was responsible for coordinating the military conspiracy of 1964 against Pres. João Goulart. The coup leaders ordered Congress to elect a new president, and he was chosen. Linked to other veteran officers in the Escola Superior da Guerra, founded in the 1940s in Rio de Janeiro, his foreign policy was anti-Communist, and he believed that short-term technocratic measures should be taken to create the conditions for democracy. His government succeeded in stabilizing the economy, reorganizing the financial system, and renegotiating foreign debt, but failed to alter traditional patterns of authority and prevent the emergence of hardline factions amongst the military, which established the "tutelary regime" that survived until 1985. When the October 1965 state elections went against the regime, the hardliners forced Castelo Branco to modify the constitution to dissolve all existing political parties, provide for election of the president by Congress instead of by the people, reinstate the right of the president to remove key government officials and to cancel citizens' civil rights, and provide for packing the Supreme Court. His term was scheduled to end on Jan. 31, 1966, but was extended to March 15, 1967, when he was succeeded by his war minister Artur da Costa e Silva. He died in an airplane accident.

Castilla (y Marquesado), Ramón (b. Aug. 27, 1797, Tarapacá, Peru - d. May 25, 1867, Arica, Peru [now in Chile]), president of Peru (1845-51, 1855-62). As a young man he fought for the Spaniards until he was captured by the Chilean patriots. He then fought against the Spaniards in Peru, performing heroically with José de San Martín and Simón Bolívar. In 1839 he was named minister of war and treasury in the government of Pres. Agustín Gamarra. Acting as minister of the treasury, he arranged the first contract (1841) with British capitalists to exploit guano, a fertilizer made from bird dung that accumulated on islands near the coast. In the anarchy that followed the death of Gamarra in 1841, Castilla assumed power and was elected president in 1845. He served until 1851 and then overthrew the next president, José Rufino Echenique, in 1855. When Castilla seized power, Peru had been racked by disorder and rebellions for almost 20 years. A strong and skillful leader, he had the good fortune to be in power when huge supplies of guano and sodium nitrate were discovered. The income from these resources helped him bring about economic improvements, reduce the nation's debt, build schools, improve transportation, and foster domestic business. He also abolished Negro slavery and the head tax on Indians, and, although he was a strong supporter of the church, he eliminated the church courts and the compulsory tithe. In 1860 he supported Peru's new constitution, which narrowed the franchise, gave wide powers to the president, and recognized the Roman Catholic Church exclusively; it remained in force until 1920. When Castilla's paternal despotism ended in 1862, the nation once again lapsed into 20 years of chaos and rebellion.

He was minister of economy, industry, and commerce (1971-72), first vice president and minister of the presidency (1974-78), and executive president of the Central Bank (1982-84, 1994-95). Castillo was one of the founders of the social-democratic National Liberation Party.

As vice president from 1938, he became acting president for the incapacitated Pres. Roberto M. Ortiz in 1940; he succeeded as president on Ortiz's resignation in 1942 but was deposed in 1943.
1 He was named Ramón Antonio Castillo Barrionuevo (Ramón alone at birth; Antonio added at confirmation) before he adopted the initial S.; the meaning is undocumented, though it has been suggested that it stands for Santiago.

Castillo Armas, Carlos (b. Nov. 4, 1914, Santa Lucía Cotzumalguapa, Escuintla department, Guatemala - d. July 26, 1957, Guatemala City), president of Guatemala (1954-57). He participated in the revolt that ousted Pres. Jorge Ubico in July 1944 and supported the ouster of Ubico's successor, Gen. Federico Ponce, in October 1944. Castillo was a supporter of Col. Francisco Araña, the armed forces chief of staff who was assassinated in July 1949. Imprisoned after a failed coup attempt in 1950, he escaped to the Colombian embassy in 1951 and was allowed to leave the country. He went into exile in Honduras, where he remained an opponent of the left-wing regime of Jacobo Arbenz. He launched an invasion, supported by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, in June 1954 to "liberate" Guatemala, and Arbenz was forced to resign. A military junta led by Col. Élfego Monzón took power on June 29, and Castillo agreed to join the junta on July 2. He became head of the junta on July 8 and was installed as president on September 1. In October he won a plebiscite in which the electors had to appear in person before the polling committees and answer publicly "yes" or "no" to the question: "Do you wish Colonel Castillo Armas to continue as president of the republic?" With other political parties banned, his National Democratic Movement also won the December 1955 assembly elections. Arbenz's land reforms were reversed and a crackdown was launched against Communist and trade-union activity, before Castillo was assassinated in the presidential palace by a guard who then killed himself.

Castle of Blackburn (of Ibstone in the County of Buckinghamshire), Barbara (Anne) Castle, Baroness, née Betts (b. Oct. 6, 1910, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England - d. May 3, 2002, Ibstone, Buckinghamshire, England), British politician. She was committed to the Labour Party's traditional left-wing philosophy, favouring a welfare state that fought for the interests of pensioners and the disabled. She was a parliamentarian for 31 years (1945-79) and served as a cabinet minister under Harold Wilson, becoming the first woman in some posts. She first became minister of overseas development (1964-65), then minister of transport (1965-68) and secretary of state for employment and productivity (1968-70). She remained in the shadow cabinet during the Conservative government of the early 1970s and when Labour regained power in 1974 she became secretary of state for social services. However, when James Callaghan replaced Wilson as prime minister in 1976, Castle was banished to the back benches. She was the architect of legislation promoting equal pay for women and fighting drunken driving. However, she failed to rein in Britain's powerful unions in an effort to stop their unofficial strikes, which often undermined the British economy and Labour governments. She was once expected to become Britain's first female prime minister, a landmark achieved by Conservative Margaret Thatcher in 1979 when Labour was voted out of office. Castle left Westminster that year to begin a 10-year career as a member of the European Parliament, where she led the British Labour group until 1985 and was vice chairman of the Socialist group until 1986. She was granted a life peerage in 1990. She criticized Tony Blair's Labour government when his policies began moving the party from the left to the centre.

He was governor of Táchira (1888-89) but was exiled to Colombia when the government in Caracas was overthrown in 1892. In Colombia he recruited a private army of cowboys, with which he successfully attacked Caracas in 1899. Known as the Lion of the Andes, he became the first man from the mountains to rule a nation that had been dominated by plainsmen and city dwellers from Caracas. When he refused to pay off foreign debts in 1902, British, German, and Italian ships blockaded the country, leaving the nation almost bankrupt. The issue was eventually resolved through arbitration. He is renowned for being one of the most corrupt leaders in South American history. He was constantly involved in uprisings, duels over mistresses, and the imprisonment of political rivals. He was ultimately deposed by his more ruthless lieutenant, Juan Vicente Gómez. Castro remained an exile for the rest of his life, mostly in Puerto Rico, unsuccessfully plotting his return to Venezuela.

F. Castro
Castro (Ruz), Fidel (Alejandro)1 (b. Aug. 13, 1926?2, near Birán, Cuba - d. Nov. 25, 2016, Havana, Cuba), Cuban premier (1959-76) and president of the Councils of State and Ministers (1976-2008). He became a member of the Cuban People's Party (called Ortodoxos) in 1947 and was their candidate for a parliamentary seat in elections scheduled for 1952. But on March 10, 1952, Gen. Fulgencio Batista overthrew the government of Pres. Carlos Prío Socarrás and canceled the elections. Castro began to organize a revolution early in 1953. On July 26 he led a small group against the Moncada military barracks in Santiago, but he was arrested. Upon his release from prison in 1955, he went to Mexico to organize the next step in the revolution, heading an organization called the 26th of July Movement. On Dec. 2, 1956, he led a group that landed in Cuba aboard the yacht Granma. Meeting initial setbacks, Castro, his brother Raúl, Che Guevara, and others retreated into the Sierra Maestra to wage guerrilla warfare against Batista's demoralized forces. Batista finally fled the country on Dec. 31, 1958. In February 1959 Castro became premier. His movement was merged with other groups in 1961 and became the Communist Party of Cuba in 1965, with him as first secretary. His government vastly expanded educational opportunities and redistributed economic wealth and access to health facilities. The U.S. equipped thousands of Cuban exiles to overthrow Castro, but their Bay of Pigs Invasion in April 1961 failed. In 1962 the Soviet Union stationed ballistic missiles in Cuba, and the world came close to nuclear war. The crisis ended when the Soviet Union agreed to withdraw its missiles in exchange for a pledge that the U.S. would no longer seek to overthrow the Cuban government. Still, the CIA continued for some time to plot to assassinate Castro. In 2006, for health reasons, he put his leading posts in charge of Raúl, and he did not stand for reelection as president in 2008 or as party chief in 2011.
1 Originally Fidel Hipólito Ruz. He was recognized by his father - and perhaps legitimated - in 1943.
2 His official birthday is Aug. 13, 1926, but some of his siblings told biographers that he was actually born in 1927 and that his parents falsified his age so that he could attend school a year earlier. In a letter he wrote to U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt in November 1940, congratulating him on his reelection, he said he was twelve years old which would suggest the birth year 1928.

Raúl Castro
Castro (Ruz), Raúl (Modesto), originally Raúl Ruz (b. June 3, 1931, Birán, Cuba), Cuban politician. He stood alongside his brother Fidel Castro since 1953. After the successful revolution he was armed forces (defense) minister from 1959 to 2008. As second secretary of the Communist Party from 1965 and first vice president of the Council of State and Council of Ministers from 1976, he was Fidel's designated successor. Although he was thought to be the more traditional Communist of the two, he demonstrated greater interest in economic reform than his brother. While Fidel was the charismatic public face of the revolution, Raúl appeared quiet and reserved. His wife Vilma Espín (1930-2007) was also an important senior party figure. In 2006 Fidel, because of ill health, delegated his leading positions to Raúl. Fidel was not able to take them up again, and Raúl officially succeeded him as president in 2008 and as first secretary of the Communist Party in 2011. He implemented various liberalizing reforms, mainly with regard to private property rights, without loosening the party's power monopoly. In December 2014 he and U.S. president Barack Obama announced that the two countries would reestablish diplomatic ties. That opening reached its zenith in March 2016, when Obama visited Havana. He left the presidency in 2018, when Miguel Díaz-Canel became the first non-Castro to lead Cuba in 59 years. In 2021 he also passed the party leadership to Díaz-Canel.

Under Prince Grigore Ghica (1849-56), he rose to be prefect of police at Iasi. In 1858 he served on the Moldavian divan ad hoc (representative commission) formed to determine the future political organization of the Danubian principalities - Moldavia and Walachia - and in 1859 was the Conservative candidate for the throne of Moldavia. After the unification of the principalities, he joined the secret committee that successfully planned the overthrow of the first prince of united Romania, Alexandru Ioan, and his replacement by Prince Karl of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen (1866), thereafter prince, and later (1881) King Carol I. From February 1866 until the accession of Carol in May, he served on the three-member governing regency and, from May to July 1866, headed his first cabinet. During the anti-dynastic agitation of 1871, he was called to form another government. His policy, which averted revolution and revived the popularity of the crown, was regarded as unpatriotic and reactionary by the Liberals, who resumed office in 1876, and a proposal to impeach the whole Catargiu cabinet was only withdrawn in 1878. In opposition, he led his Conservative Party in violent attacks against the ruling Liberals, until in 1889 he formed another cabinet, but this administration fell after seven months. In office again in 1891-95, he was responsible for several useful reforms, chiefly financial and commercial. He held the interior portfolio in all his administrations as well as in Ioan Emanoil Florescu's ministry in 1891; he also was war minister (1894) and president of the Chamber of Deputies (1866-67, 1888-89).

Cato, (Robert) Milton (b. June 3, 1915, Saint Vincent island - d. Feb. 10, 1997, Kingstown, Saint Vincent), prime minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (1979-84). Having joined the Canadian army, he saw active service in Europe in World War II. Back in St. Vincent, he began to identify himself with local political aspirations. He was elected a parliamentary member of the short-lived West Indies Federation. In 1955 he, along with others, founded the St. Vincent Labour Party (SVLP). He became leader of the opposition in 1961. In May 1967, as leader of the SVLP, he became chief minister, and in 1969 premier when the island moved from dependency status to associated statehood. In 1972 his party lost to an opposition coalition, but in 1974, in an extraordinary turnabout, he led it to victory in conjunction with the island's other main political party. By 1976 this coalition had collapsed, but Cato retained the position of premier as the SVLP still had a majority in the legislative assembly. When St. Vincent cast loose its links of association with Britain on Oct. 27, 1979, Cato became its first prime minister under the new constitution, a position that was confirmed in elections on December 5. Cato was one of the few remaining Caribbean heads of government of the old school. Though a socialist, his political convictions did not embrace modern regional interpretations, let alone Marxism-Leninism. He had been highly critical, in both public and private, of the effect of the revolution in neighbouring Grenada and developments in Jamaica and Guyana. Instead he preferred to establish closer links with the relatively conservative governments of Trinidad and Barbados, both at an economic level and through the establishment of a joint coast guard and a fisheries protection service with Barbados. He was also minister of finance (1968-72, 1975-84) and information and Grenadines affairs (1980-84). The SVLP was defeated in July 1984 elections, and in November he announced his retirement from politics.

Catroux, Georges (Albert Julien) (b. Jan. 29, 1877, Limoges, Haute-Vienne, France - d. Dec. 21, 1969, Paris, France), French administrator. He served in World War I, was wounded and taken prisoner in 1916 at which time he met another wounded POW, Charles de Gaulle. He was promoted to general in 1931, led a pacification campaign in Morocco, and commanded an army corps in Algeria. Appointed acting governor-general of Indochina in 1939, he was dismissed by the Vichy government in 1940 and joined General de Gaulle's Free French movement. He was tried in absentia and sentenced to death by Vichy in 1941. De Gaulle gave him the command of the French forces in the Syrian campaign in 1941 and he was delegate-general of Syria and Lebanon in 1941-43 where his tact and negotiating ability took some of the edge off quarrels between the British and Free French. He restored calm after a disastrous Free French decision to arrest the president and the government of Lebanon in 1943. He was governor-general of Algeria in 1943-44, minister for North Africa in the French provisional government in 1944, and French ambassador to the Soviet Union in 1945-48. He was a member of the Grand Council of de Gaulle's Rassemblement du Peuple Français but left it in 1952. He remained in close contact with de Gaulle and, like him, protested against the forced exile of the sultan of Morocco in 1953. In September 1955, when Prime Minister Edgar Faure was undoing the work of French reactionaries, it was Catroux who was sent to Madagascar for talks with the exiled Muhammad V and who brought him back to France. He was appointed resident minister of Algeria in 1956, but his reputation as a liberal and friend of Muslims caused an outcry among the Europeans in Algeria and he quickly resigned.

L.E. Cavaignac
Cavaignac, Louis Eugène (b. Oct. 15, 1802, Paris, France - d. Oct. 28, 1857, Ourne, Sarthe, France), chief executive of France (1848). Cavaignac's father, Jean-Baptiste, was a Jacobin member of the Committee of General Security during the French Revolution (1789-92), and Louis retained his father's strong republican beliefs. His uncle, Jacques-Marie, served the Bourbons and the July Monarchy, which ruled France in 1830-48, and helped Cavaignac regain his appointment in the army, from which he had been dismissed in 1831 because of his republicanism. Nevertheless, he was sent to the relative isolation of Algeria. Cavaignac performed with distinction during the French conquest of Algeria in the 1840s, and in 1848 he was appointed governor-general. Amid the revolutionary activity of that year, he was elected to the legislature in France and appointed minister of war by the provisional government of the newly formed Second Republic. That June there was a large workers' revolt in Paris to protest the expulsion of Socialist leaders from the National Assembly and the closing of the national workshops (government-sponsored employment centres). Cavaignac directed the suppression of the revolt, for which he became known as "the butcher of June." On June 28 the National Assembly named him chief executive of France, but he lost the presidential election to Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte (later Emperor Napoléon III) that December. Cavaignac remained a leader of the opposition to Bonaparte. He was arrested in 1851, but the next year he was elected to the Corps Législatif. He refused, however, to take an oath of allegiance to the new emperor and thus was denied his seat in the legislature both then and again in 1857.

Cavaleiros, Rodrigo José (António) de Meneses e Castro, conde de (b. Nov. 12, 1750, Santa Maria dos Olivais, Portugal - d. May 13, 1807, Óbidos, Portugal), governor of Minas Gerais (1780-83) and governor-general of Bahia (1784-88). He was made conde de Cavaleiros in 1802.

Cavallo, Domingo (Felipe) (b. July 21, 1946, San Francisco, Córdoba province, Argentina), Argentine politician. He was foreign minister in 1989-91 and then became economy minister. When inflation ran around 5,000%, he pegged the peso to the U.S. dollar and ushered in a period of economic stability and growth for Latin America's third-largest economy. Under the Peronist administration of Pres. Carlos Menem, he oversaw the mass privatization of Argentina's inefficient state-owned companies. The country became a darling of Wall Street investors. Legend has it Cavallo was greeted like a sports hero when he stepped into the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange in 1995 amid a market meltdown across Latin America. As traders chanted his nickname "Mingo" to the cadence usually reserved for soccer stars, Argentine stocks rebounded, if only for a moment. In July 1996, he left Menem's administration after he ruffled feathers by alleging the existence of crime rings in the government. Cavallo began the Action for the Republic party and won a seat in Congress. Since then, he made an effort to remain in the public eye at home and abroad. He gave advice to crisis-torn Ecuador and even his old boss was proud to see a countryman on the world stage in 1998 when Russia sought his advice on its debt crisis. Cavallo ran for president in 1999 but got only about 10% of the vote. He also ran for mayor of Buenos Aires, and lost. In March 2001 he again became economy minister. He stepped down as head of his party in May 2001, saying he wanted to concentrate on rescuing the ailing economy - this time without success. He had to quit along with de la Rúa in December after their economic policies triggered bloody riots. He was jailed from April to June 2002 in connection with an arms-smuggling scandal.

Cavara, Marinko (b. Feb. 2, 1967, Busovaca [now in Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina]), president of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (2015- ).

Cave, George Cave, (1st) Viscount (b. Feb. 23, 1856, London, England - d. March 29, 1928, Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, England), British home secretary (1916-19) and lord chancellor (1922-24, 1924-28). He was knighted in 1915 and created viscount in 1918.

Cavelier de Cuverville, Jules Marie Armand, comte de (b. July 28, 1834, Allineuc, Côtes-du-Nord [now Côtes-d'Armor], France - d. March 14, 1912, Paris, France), commandant of the Naval Division of the Western Coasts of Africa (1884-86).

June 17, 1839, Paris, France), governor of Madras (1803-07) and governor-general of India (1828-35); son of William Henry Cavendish Cavendish-Bentinck, Duke of Portland. He was also British minister to the Two Sicilies (1811-14).

Caveri, Severino, French Séverin Caveri (b. May 29, 1908 - d. Dec. 19, 1977), president of Valle d'Aosta (1946-54, 1963-66).

Cavero (y Cárdenas), Ignacio (b. between June 23 and 29, 1757, Merida, Yucatán, Mexico - d. Aug. 17 or 22, 1834, Cartagena, Colombia), president of the Supreme Junta of Government of Cartagena (1811-12).

Cavero (Ovalle), José Salvador (b. Feb. 19, 1850, Huanta, Peru - d. Feb. 19, 1940, Lima, Peru), prime minister of Peru (1910). He was also minister of finance (1893-94), justice (1894, 1910), and interior (1894-95) and first vice president (1904-08).

Cavero Lataillade, Íñigo, barón de Carondelet y de la Torre, marqués del Castillo de Aysa (b. Aug. 1, 1929, San Sebastián, Spain - d. Dec. 25, 2002, Madrid, Spain), justice minister of Spain (1979-80). He was also minister of education and science (1977-79) and culture (1980-81) and president of the Council of State (1996-2002). He succeeded to the marqués title in 1968, as barón de Carondelet in 1971, and as barón de la Torre in 1972.

Cavina, Sergio (b. May 5, 1929, Ravenna, Italy - d. Dec. 22, 1977, Bologna, Italy), president of Emilia-Romagna (1976-77).

Cavour, Camillo Benso, conte di (b. Aug. 10, 1810, Turin, France [now in Italy] - d. June 6, 1861, Turin), prime minister of Sardinia (1852-59, 1860-61) and Italy (1861). In 1847 he founded a progressive journal, Il Risorgimento ("The Resurgence," the name subsequently given to the Italian unification movement). He entered Sardinian politics in 1849, and held various ministerial posts under Massimo Taparelli, marchese d'Azeglio, before replacing him as prime minister. He was minister of agriculture and commerce (1850-52), finance (1851-52, 1852-58), foreign affairs (1855, 1856-59, 1860-61), and interior (1858-59, 1860) of Sardinia and foreign minister of Italy (1861). Cavour's early policy was based on the economic development and modernization of the Kingdom of Sardinia, fostering commerce, ending restrictions on banking, and improving communications. From 1855, however, he concentrated increasingly on foreign affairs, entering the Crimean War against Russia and perhaps achieving his greatest success with the Plombières Agreement with France which laid the basis for the acquisition of Lombardy from Austria. In 1860 the Expedition of the Thousand to Sicily and Giuseppe Garibaldi's subsequent victories in the Mezzogiorno made Cavour fear that the latter might establish a republican government in the south or attempt to capture Rome, which would jeopardize good relations with France. He consequently tried to place the south under more moderate leadership. Having failed to achieve this, he sent troops through the Papal States (annexing Umbria and the Marche en route) to block Garibaldi's northward advance. Much to his relief, Garibaldi happily surrendered his conquests to King Vittorio Emanuele II, and the Kingdom of Sardinia became the Kingdom of Italy in March 1861. In the last months of his life, Cavour made an abortive attempt to secure Rome through purchase and diplomacy.

Çavusoglu, Mevlüt (b. Feb. 5, 1968, Alanya, Turkey), foreign minister of Turkey (2014-15, 2015- ). He was also minister for EU affairs (2013-14).

Caxias, Luiz Alves de Lima e Silva, barão, conde, marquês e duque de (b. Aug. 25, 1803, Taquaraçu [now part of Duque de Caxias], Rio de Janeiro captaincy [now state], Brazil - d. May 7, 1880, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), chairman of the Council of Ministers of Brazil (1856-57, 1861-62, 1875-78); son of Francisco de Lima e Silva, barão de Barra Grande. Joining the military service at age 14, he took part in the independence campaigns and fought in Uruguay in 1825 against Juan Antonio Lavalleja. In April 1831, following the abdication of Pedro I, he was called upon to organize a national guard to maintain order in Rio de Janeiro and its environs. During the hectic regency period he methodically extinguished insurrections in rebellious provinces. He was president of Maranhão (1840-41) and Rio Grande do Sul (1842-46, 1851). The latter province was still racked by the War of the Farrapos, begun in 1835, when he was made president of the province and commander of imperial forces in 1842; he forced the insurgents to a peace settlement 3 years later. In 1852 he led the Brazilian army at the victorious battle of Monte Caseros against Argentina's Juan Manuel de Rosas. Caxias's military genius and sense of political moderation were highly regarded by conservatives. He was called into government - serving also as war minister (1855-57, 1861-62) - in a traditional ploy of the monarchy to placate powerful military figures. In 1866 he was recalled to active duty to command the Brazilian army in the Paraguayan War against Francisco Solano López. Caxias replaced Argentina's Bartolomé Mitre as commander in chief of the allied armies in 1868. By the end of 1868 he dealt López's army a crushing defeat at Itá-Ibaté and proclaimed the war's end. He neglected to cut off López's escape, however, and the enemy continued to fight. On Jan. 12, 1869, he returned to Rio to face a Senate investigation for his conduct of the war, and was absolved of all charges. After the Paraguayan War perhaps only the influence of Caxias subordinated the increasingly arrogant military to civilian control. His death unleashed the militarism which Brazil had been able to escape for over half a century. Caxias is remembered as the "Pacifier" and "Patron of the Army," and his birthday is celebrated as the Dia do Soldado. He was made baron in 1841, count in 1845, marquess in 1852, and duke (the only in Brazil's history) in 1869.

Caycedo (y Sanz de Santamaría), Domingo (b. Aug. 4, 1783, Bogotá, New Granada [now in Colombia] - d. July 1, 1843, Puente Aranda [now part of Bogotá], New Granada), interior minister (1829-30) and foreign minister (1830) of Colombia, acting president of Colombia (1830, 1831) and New Granada (1831, 1841), and vice president of New Granada (1837-43).

A.P. Cayetano
Cayetano, Alan Peter (Schramm) (b. Oct. 28, 1970, Mandaluyong, Philippines), foreign secretary of the Philippines (2017-18). He was also a vice presidential candidate (2016) and speaker of the House of Representatives (2019-20).

B. Cayetano
Cayetano, Ben(jamin Jerome) (b. Nov. 14, 1939, Honolulu, Hawaii), governor of Hawaii (1994-2002). After serving in the state's House of Representatives (1975-78) and Senate (1979-86), the Democrat became lieutenant governor of Hawaii (1986-94). Cayetano's election as governor in 1994 was due less to the strength of his Democratic machine than to the weakness and division of his opponents. Former Congresswoman Pat Saiki, a strong though losing candidate against Senator Daniel Akaka in 1990, and of Japanese descent, seemed as potent a candidate as Republicans could field. But she split the anti-Democratic vote with Frank Fasi, longtime (1968-80, 1984-94) mayor of Honolulu. In 1994, Fasi formed his own The Best party, raised money from city employees and was endorsed by the carpenters' union; meanwhile, Cayetano beat state healthcare program director Jack Lewin by only 55%-38% in the September primary. Cayetano said he was more concerned about education than prisons, and argued that Democrats' programs benefited ordinary people; Saiki talked tough on crime and promised a better business climate to "grow" the economy; Fasi combatively stressed his get-things-done record as mayor. Cayetano, relying on a half-hour ad telling his personal story, won with 37% of the vote; Saiki had 31% and Fasi 29%. In office, Cayetano reluctantly cut spending increases sharply and declined to raise taxes: in tandem with mainland politics.

Cayla, Léon (Henri Charles) (b. Nov. 17, 1881, Oran, Algeria - d. April 25, 1965, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Seine-et-Oise [now in Yvelines], France), governor of the Alawite Territory (1925) and Lebanon (1925-26) and governor-general of Madagascar (1930-39, 1940-41) and French West Africa (1939-40).

Caylus, Charles de Thubières, marquis de (b. 1698 - d. 1750?), governor of Martinique (1744-50). He mysteriously disappeared while he was in office, being no more seen in Martinique after May 12, 1750. It is not known whether he died or left the island.

July 6, 1850, Paris, France), first secretary of state (1824-25, 1832-34) and foreign minister (1849) of Spain. He was also chargé d'affaires in Russia (1812-20) and minister to the Ottoman Empire (1820-23), the United Kingdom (1823-24, 1828-32), Saxony (1826-28), and Portugal (1848-50).

She was also chair of the National Council for Science and Technology (1979-89). She was executed with her husband.

N. Ceausescu
Ceausescu, Nicolae (Andruta) (b. Jan. 26, 1918, Scornicesti, Romania - d. Dec. 25, 1989, Tîrgoviste [now Târgoviste], near Bucharest, Romania), Romanian Communist Party leader (1965-89). A prominent member of the Romanian Communist youth movement during the early 1930s, he was twice imprisoned for his Communist Party activities. While in prison he became a protégé of his cell mate, the Communist leader Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej. After the Communists' full accession to power in 1947, he was agriculture minister (1948-50) and deputy minister of the armed forces (1950-54). With the death of Gheorghiu-Dej in March 1965, he succeeded to the Communist Party leadership as first secretary (general secretary from July 1965) and became president of the State Council in December 1967. He was elected to the newly created post of president of Romania in 1974. While following an independent policy in foreign relations, he adhered ever more closely to the Communist orthodoxy of centralized administration at home. He instituted an extensive personality cult and appointed his wife, Elena, and many members of his extended family to high government and party posts. Among his grandiose and impractical schemes was a plan to bulldoze thousands of villages and move their residents into new apartment buildings. His regime collapsed after he ordered his security forces to fire on anti-government demonstrators in Timisoara on Dec. 17, 1989. The demonstrations spread to Bucharest, and on December 22 the army defected to the demonstrators. That same day Ceausescu and his wife fled the capital in a helicopter but were captured by the armed forces. On December 25 they were hurriedly tried and convicted by a special military tribunal on charges of mass murder and other crimes and were then shot by a firing squad.

Viscount Cecil
Cecil of Chelwood, (Edgar Algernon) Robert (Gascoyne-)Cecil, (1st) Viscount (b. Sept. 14, 1864, London, England - d. Nov. 24, 1958, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England), British statesman; son of Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil, Marquess of Salisbury. He entered Parliament in 1906 where he remained, with one brief interruption, until 1923. During World War I, he was successively undersecretary of state for foreign affairs (1915-16), minister of blockade (1916-18), and assistant secretary of state for foreign affairs (1918). As early as 1916 he began to draw up an international peacekeeping agreement, and in 1919, when he was sent to the peace conference in Paris, his ideas proved generally compatible with those of U.S. president Woodrow Wilson and South African Field Marshal Jan Christian Smuts, the other prominent advocates of the League. Like Smuts, Cecil believed in a world order determined by the white nations; he successfully opposed a provision for absolute racial equality among League member states. In 1923 he was created lord privy seal, a post which gave him the opportunity to devote himself to affairs at Geneva, and later the same year he was elevated to the peerage. In 1924 he became chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. As the principal British delegate to the disarmament conference at Geneva (1926-27), Cecil disagreed with the instructions given him and resigned from Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin's government. During the 1930s he unsuccessfully argued for League measures against aggression by Japan in Manchuria and by Italy in Ethiopia. In 1937 his efforts were rewarded with the Nobel Prize for Peace. He was one of the few in Parliament to vote against the concessions made to Nazi Germany at Munich in 1938.

He led an unsuccessful revolt against Pres. Lázaro Cárdenas in 1938.

Cédras, (Joseph) Raoul (b. July 9, 1949, Jérémie, Haiti), Haitian coup leader. He entered the Military Academy in August 1971 and was commissioned as a sublieutenant in January 1973. He spent almost all his career in the Military Academy, where he became a cadet commander in 1978, training officer in 1983, and director of the Academy in 1988. In 1986, he was commander of the Recruit Training Centre, and in 1990 he was named president of the Coordinating Committee for Election Security. He did this job well, which earned him the esteem of Jean-Bertrand Aristide who swept Haiti's first fully democratic elections with almost 70% of the vote. The very day of Aristide's inaugural, Feb. 7, 1991, Cédras was promoted to chief of the army general staff. After the resignation of the commander-in-chief of the army, Hérard Abraham, Aristide appointed Cédras as interim commander-in-chief, July 2. He took part in the coup ousting Aristide in September, and parliament subsequently confirmed his appointment as commander-in-chief for three years. Before the coup, Cédras, one of the few mulatto officers in the army, was perceived by public opinion as a moderate, but the favourable opinions of him were reversed following the coup, which he called "a democratic correction." He supported repressive actions of the army and paramilitary groups and did what he could to frustrate various international accords designed to return Aristide to power. He remained Haiti's de facto leader until October 1994, when a U.S. intervention ended his regime. He went into exile in Panama. In November 2000, a Haitian court sentenced Cédras and 36 army officers in absentia to life in prison with hard labour for their roles in an April 1994 massacre at Raboteau, a seaside shantytown.

Cem (Ipekçi1), Ismail (b. 1940, Istanbul, Turkey - d. Jan. 24, 2007, Istanbul), foreign minister of Turkey (1997-2002). He came to national attention in 1974 when he was appointed head of the state broadcasting company TRT and brightened up notoriously conservative radio and television broadcasts with a reformist administration he set up. Ousted from his post after a change of government, he published the left-leaning daily Politika, which was one of the most influential newspapers of its day. He was elected to parliament in 1987 for the Social Democratic People's Party and served as culture minister in a 1995 coalition government. The same year, he joined Bülent Ecevit's Democratic Left Party (DSP) and in December was reelected to parliament from the central province of Kayseri, his ancestral home; he was the first leftist legislator to be elected from the conservative stronghold. He was named foreign minister in 1997 in a minority coalition headed by the centre-right Motherland Party and retained his post after the April 1999 elections from which the DSP came out ahead to cobble together a three-party coalition. He won domestic praise for the resolution of a diplomatic row with Damascus over Syria's alleged support for Kurdish rebels. In 1999, he spearheaded an unprecedented rapprochement with Greece. In December 1999, the pro-European Cem saw Turkey granted candidacy for EU membership. He resigned in June 2002 amid a severe political crisis triggered by disagreement between coalition partners over reforms demanded by the EU and Ecevit's long absence from office due to bad health. He set up a new political group, the New Turkey Party, but failed to obtain any seats in the November 2002 election that propelled the Islamist-rooted Justice and Development Party to power.
1 He dropped his original surname Ipekçi in the 1970s to distance himself from his relative Abdi Ipekçi, who was editor of Milliyet, and avoid possible accusations of favouritism.

N. Cenac
Cen Chunxuan (b. April 2, 1861, Xilin, Guangxi, China - d. April 27, 1933, Shanghai, China), governor-general of Sichuan (1902-03, 1907-08), Liangguang (1903-06), and Yungui (1906-07) and chairman of the Governing Committee of the Military Government of China (1918-20). He was under the protection of Gen. Lu Rongting after the revolution of 1916; he founded the Military Bureau in Zhaoqing, Guangdong, together with Liang Qichao, who opposed Pres. Yuan Shikai. In 1917, he took part in the Constitutional Movement launched by Sun Yat-sen against Premier Duan Qirui. In 1918 he became one of seven members, and then the chairman, of the Governing Committee of the southern government. He helped to push Sun Yat-sen out of the government, but he himself was expelled by the Guangdong army in 1920 and then left politics.

Cenac, Sir (Emmanuel) Neville (b. Nov. 24, 1939, Castries, Saint Lucia), foreign minister (1987-92) and governor-general (2018-21) of Saint Lucia; knighted 2018; brother of Winston Cenac. He was also mayor of Castries (1981-82), leader of the opposition (1982-87), and president of the Senate (1993-97).

W. Cenac
Cenac, Winston (Francis) (b. Sept. 14, 1925 - d. Sept. 23, 2004, Castries, Saint Lucia), prime minister of Saint Lucia (1981-82). After a number of legal appointments during 1962-67, he was successively attorney general of St. Lucia, St. Vincent, and Grenada. In 1967 he was appointed to the post of director of public prosecutions in Grenada. In 1969 he returned to St. Lucia and entered private practice, and in 1971 he was appointed to act as puisne judge in St. Vincent. In 1972 he was appointed puisne judge for St. Kitts-Nevis and the British Virgin Islands. Following the failure of Allan Louisy, prime minister since the 1979 general election, to pass his budget through parliament, a constitutional crisis developed. After attempts by the anti-Louisy faction in the Labour Party to form their own government, Cenac emerged as a compromise candidate. By offering the major portfolios - foreign affairs, trade and industry, and tourism - to his remaining principal rival within the Labour Party, Peter Josie, he was able to secure the support of enough members of his party in parliament to obtain a wafer-thin overall majority of one. By nature Cenac was not a politician. Though he was able to bring to St. Lucia a public aura of calm after the bitter political infighting, those who knew him well indicated that, though personally charming, he lacked the grasp of the complex local and regional issues that others with years of political experience had. He resigned in January 1982 after strikes and street protests broke out when his government tried to pass a law that would have exonerated a member of parliament accused of benefiting financially from a government contract. Cenac often claimed his resignation saved St. Lucia from spiraling into civil strife and bloodshed.

He was also president of the Council of State of Vaud (1864) and minister of finance (1870-71), military (1872), and justice and police (1874-75).

Cerezo Arévalo, Marco Vinicio (b. Dec. 26, 1942, Guatemala City, Guatemala), president of Guatemala (1986-90). The son of a member of Guatemala's Supreme Court, he began his own rise to political prominence in the Christian Democratic party (DCG). He eventually became his party's national organization secretary, traveling extensively throughout the country. For several generations Cerezo's family had actively opposed military dictatorship, and his determination to see his country restored to stable democratic rule was fired at the age of 11, when he witnessed the coup aided by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in 1954. While Cerezo described himself as an independently minded liberal not bound by party orthodoxy, his right-wing opponents perceived him as a leftist. Since 1980 three attempts on his life were made by the notorious death squads - a reminder of the power wielded by Guatemala's military and paramilitary. Presidential and congressional elections held on Nov. 3, 1985, showed Cerezo to be the most popular candidate, although he failed to gain the 50% majority required to secure the presidency; a second round on December 8 proved conclusive when he won 68% of the vote. On Jan. 14, 1986, he took office as Guatemala's first freely elected civilian president since 1970 (and only the second since 1954). The most notable achievements of this witty and debonair president were in the field of international and regional relations. On a trip to Washington in December 1985, he won the respect of the U.S. administration, ensuring the resumption of U.S. economic assistance, and a tour of Western European countries late in 1986 was equally successful. The formation of a Central American parliament, aimed at resolving regional conflict, was the result of a Cerezo initiative. In 2017 he became secretary-general of the Central American Integration System.

Cerník, Oldrich (b. Oct. 27, 1921, Ostrava, Czechoslovakia [now in Czech Republic] - d. Oct. 19, 1994, Prague, Czech Republic), prime minister of Czechoslovakia (1968-70). He joined the Communist Party in 1945 and by 1956 he had become a member of the party's Central Committee. Cerník gained a reputation as an able technocrat, and in 1960 he was named minister of fuel. He joined forces with others who believed in the decentralization of the state's economy and worked as a behind-the-scenes player in attempts to advance reform. In 1966 he was elected to the party's Presidium. In April 1968 he was appointed premier by party president Alexander Dubcek. Cerník was considered a centrist and a master at conciliation. After Warsaw Pact troops occupied Prague in August, he and a handful of other politicians were handcuffed and led away to the Soviet Union. Upon his return, he tried to maintain a balancing act, calling upon his countrymen to cooperate and publicly supporting the country's accord with Moscow while also promising to continue economic reform. He actively disassociated himself from the "errors" that he and others had committed. His about-face was insufficient; in January 1970 he was forced out as premier and by the end of the year expelled from the party. His attempts to rekindle his political career after the fall of the Communist regime in 1989 were unsuccessful.

He later joined the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA) and led a commando that occupied the Japanese ambassador's residence in Lima on Dec. 17, 1996, taking all the guests at a reception in honour of Japan's emperor hostage. Most of the hostages were soon released, but the commando continued to hold 72 people, including the brother of President Alberto Fujimori, several generals and heads of police divisions, Peru's foreign minister, Supreme Court judges, members of Congress from the ruling party, and the ambassadors from Japan and Bolivia. On April 22, 1997, a raid was launched on the embassy compound by U.S.-trained Peruvian special forces. All 14 members of the MRTA's "Commando Edgar Sánchez," including Cerpa, were killed.
