ALAMAN, Lucas (ah-la-man'), Mexican statesman, born in the state of Guanajuato, 18 October 1792; died in Mexico, 2 June 1853. He was educated at the College of La Concepcion and at the school of mines of Mexico, and afterward traveled all over Europe. After the fall of iturbide he became minister of foreign affairs, retiring when Iturbide returned to power in 1825. At this period he founded the museum of antiquities and natural history. Under Bustamente, Alamin became foreign minister again in 1830 and in 1837. He introduced European machinery and established a bank for the encouragement of industrial undertakings. He allied himself with Santa Anna when the latter returned to power in 1853, and became minister for foreign affairs and the chief instrument in the reactionary policy of fettering the press, restoring the property of the Jesuits and imposing insupportable burdens on the people. He was the author of the famous "Historia de Mejico" (1849-'52).
