Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dr. Arnulfo Arias Madrid (August 15, 1901 in Penonom, Cocl Province, Panama- August 10, 1988 in Miami, Florida) was president of Panama on three occasions: 1940-41, 1949-51, and for two weeks in October 1968. He never served a full term, being deposed by military coups on each occasion. Arias was born in Penonom, the capital of Cocl province in western Panama. He was the son of Antonio Arias and Carmen Madrid, of provincial middle class origins. Contrary to certain information in several publications, Arnulfo Arias is not related to the Arias family that had participated in Panama's independence movement. He wrote his first letters with the French Christian Brothers in his native city. He studied medicine and surgery at Harvard University. Later, he specialized in psychiatry, obstetrics and endocrinology.
