Introduction
Luis Echeverria Alvarez (1922-) was president of Mexico from 1970–1976. As a member of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary party, he held numerous party and government posts beginning in the 1940s. As secretary of the interior (1964–69), he gained prominence for his stern handling of student demonstrations during the 1968 Olympic games in Mexico City, but much later (2003) he was implicated in a cover-up of the government’s responsibility for the massacre of demonstrators in Oct., 1968. Although he faced no strong challenge in the presidential election, he campaigned strenuously. As president, he introduced agricultural technical assistance programs, promoted public works, and furthered Mexican control of industries by placing limits on foreign investment. In Dec., 1976, Echeverría Álvarez was succeeded as president by José López Portillo.
