Historical Background

Armando de Maria y Campos was born in Mexico City on May 23, 1897. He attended the Instituto CientĆfico de México and in 1914 began a career in journalism by collaborating on El Estudiante and Churubusco. In 1915, he worked as a reporter for EL LIBERAL; founded EL UNIVERSAL; managed MEFISTOFELES, EL HERALDO DE MEXICO, and EL ECO TAURINO. In addition to his activities as a chronicler of Mexican theater, Maria y Campos also wrote poetry, novels, and plays. After 1940, he became better known as a biographer and essayist. His service to the Mexican stage and theater won him a gold medal from the Asociación Nacional de Actores in 1958.
