GOMEZ, Valentin, Argentine statesman, born in Buenos Ayres in 1774; died there in 1833. He was graduated at the University of Cordoba as doctor in theology in 1795, and at the University of Chuquisaca in civil and canonical law in 1796. He was appointed professor of philosophy in the University of Cordoba in 1799, took holy orders in 1802, and soon afterward was appointed prebendary canon of the cathedral of that City. When the war of independence began in 1810, he espoused the cause of liberty, protecting the patriots from the persecutions of the royalists, and collecting subscriptions for the revolutionary cause. At the bat-tie of Piedras he fought so valiantly that he was mentioned honorably in the general order of the day. After the triumph of independence, he settled in Buenos Ayres, and was for several years rector of the University of that City. He was elected deputy to congress, and became secretary and president of that body. He was appointed minister to London in 1821, and in 1823 to Brazil.
