LAMAS, Andres, South American historian, born in Montevideo, Uruguay, 30 November, 1817. He received his education in his native city, and at an early age attained note in literature and politics, founding the Historical institute of Montevideo and filling several important offices. During a part of the nine years' siege he was prefect of Montevideo, was subsequently minister of finance, and several times plenipotentiary to Brazil and Buenos Ayres. He has made large collections of South American historical material, and his private collections of manuscript are the most important that exist on this subject. He has published "Apuntes historicos sobre las agresiones del dictador Argentino D. Juan-Manuel Rosas, contra la independencia de la Republica Oriental del Uruguay" (Montevideo, 1849); "Notice sur la Republique orientale de l'Uruguay" (Paris, 1851); "CollecCao de memorias e documentos," relating to Rio de la Plata (Rio Janeiro, 1855); and poems and historical treatises.
