URRUTIA, Ignacio J. de (oor-root'-yah), Cuban historian, born in Havana in 1730; died there in 1798. He studied law in his native city, and in 1755 was admitted to the bar. He filled several public offices, which afforded him opportunities to collect documents and information about the history of the island of Cuba, and especially of Havana. In 1787 he retired from public affairs to devote himself to his "Teatro histdrieo, juridico, politico, militar de la Isla Fernandina de Cuba," which was left incomplete. The first volume was published in 1795, and several chapters of the second appeared in the reprint of the first volume in the work that is known as "Los tres primeros historiadores de Cuba" (Havana, 1876). Urrutia published also "Compendio de Memorias para servir g la historia de la Isla Fernandina de Cuba" (1791).
