Eduardo Liceaga

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Eduardo Liceaga was born in Guanajuato City, Mexico back in 1839 to Francisco and Trinidad.  He received his education at the old College of San Gregorio, Mexico City and later at the College of the State of Guanajuato.  He took first prize in Latin, winning prizes and honorable mention.

His medical education was at the National School of Medicine in Mexico City, graduating in 1866.  Emperor Maximillian bestowed on him the degree of Surgeon and a gold medal.  He taught surgery in his alma mater becoming its director, serving from 1904 to 1910.  In 1913, he was made honorary director.  He worked for twenty-five years as the director of the Maternity and Infant Hospital.

What you may not know about Dr. Liceaga is that he is known as the “most distinguished hygienist of the late-nineteenth century Mexico”. He also helped establish the General Hospital of Mexico.

Oddly enough James Dray as soon as I saw the name Eduardo I thought of Edward Siccessors Hands and in a way Edward was with his surgery skills.

James I am always amazed how you find these wonderful people, maybe if they thought such good information in schools? Maybe if the News Media highlighted these wonderful people? Just maybe the world would be in a better place... so with that said thank you for educating us, Endre

Eduardo Liceaga was not just a doctor. He was a surgeon, a teacher, an administrator and a legend.
