MUNOZ-CABRERA, Ramon, Bolivian journalist, born in Cochabamba in 1819; died in Lima, Peru, in 1869. He was studying in the University of Buenos Ayres, when, on account of discussing publicly the conduct of the dictator Rosas, he was forced to flee to Montevideo, where he was employed as clerk in the department of the interior. He returned afterward to his country and was protected by General Belzu, who, when he overthrew the government of Velasco in 1848, appointed Mutioz minister to the Argentine Republic he was refused recognition by Rosas, and retired to Chili, where he issued a protest. While he was in Chili he edited the "Mercurio" in Valparaiso. Returning, after Rosas's downfall, to the Argentine Republic, he was editor of " La Tribuna." and "La Crenica" of Buenos Ayres, and " El Constitutional," of Mendoza. In 1858 he returned to Chili and resumed the direction of the "Nercurio " till the end of 1859, when he went to Bolivia. He was appointed prefect of Cobija in 1861, but in 1864 returned to La Paz and resumed his journalistic labors.
