On a day like today, but in 1865, the city of Rawson, capital of the province of Chubut, was founded in homage to Dr. Guillermo Rawson. History says that Enrique Libanus Jones was always at the service of British companies that had the intention of forming colonies anywhere in the Argentine Republic. What he never thought is that those “hovels” that he would build, on the north bank of the Chubut River, would become the starting point for the definitive settlement of the Province of Chubut, when an important contingent of Welsh people would temporarily settle there; thus giving rise to one of the most important epics of the second half of the 19th century, in Patagonian territory. That place, where he himself raised the Argentine flag, like Julián Murga later, is what the colonists called “Old Fort. ”, where the town of Rawson will be born later. From this city, I want to send a special greeting to all San Juan people, since in that beautiful province this great founder of the Argentine Red Cross was born, a politician and scientist who did a lot of good for the country.
