SALAZAR, Jose Maria, Colombian poet, born in Antioquia in 1785; died in Paris, France, in February, 1828. He was graduated as LL.D. in the College of San Bartolome, soon afterward composed two theatrical pieces, which were performed at the theatre of Bogota, and also published several articles in the "Semanario." When the revolution of 1810 began he occupied the place of vice-rector of the College of Nompos, which he abandoned and entered public life. The civil war that followed the revolution obliged him to move to Caracas, where he was well received by General Miranda, who appointed him minister to the government of Cartagena. In that city he conducted the paper "EL Mensajero," and on the arrival of Morillo he emigrated to Trinidad, where he practised as a lawyer. In 1820 he was appointed minister of the supreme tribunal of Venezuela, and in 1827 he was sent as minister plenipotentiary to the United States. During his stay in New York he published a political pamphlet in English and Spanish about the reforms that ought to be introduced in the constitution of Colombia. He also wrote a poem, " Colombiada," which many years afterward was printed in Caracas by his widow. On account of the civil disturbances of his country, he went to Paris to educate his children, but after his death his family returned to Caracas. He wrote "El Soliloquio de Eneas" and "El Sacrificio de Ido-meneo," two dramas (Bogota, 1802); "Placer p6b-lico de Bogot£" (1808); "Memoria biografica de Cundinamarca "(Trinidad, 1817); and "La campana de Bogota," a heroic poem (ISIS).
