Mario Anibal Gonzalez

This weekend I was honored to meet this amazing person, Mario Anibal González. Mr. González, 84, from Quetzaltenango, is the founder of the University of San Carlos in Quetzaltenango. His grandson, Giovanni González commented that Mr. González is an economist, politician, columnist for La Hora, the author of the municipal law and most importantly a humanist, who is recognized in the country.

Additionally he is the owner of a big library, that he already donated the half of it to public library in Xela and Guatemala City. Currently, where he lives he only has half of his books, which fill a room. Among those, he has books as old as 154 years old.
