“I dedicate this honor to the Externado”

When being sworn in as President of the Colombian Academy of Economic Sciences, Externado Professor Emeritus, Beethoven Herrera Valencia, dedicated the honor to this House of Studies.

Antonio José Cancino Moreno
July 13, 1940 – September 27, 2017

Since those distant ‘60s, when student Antonio Cancino was pursuing his Law studies at the old Santa Fe district site, he already displayed the Externadista temperament, taking advantage of the free environment offered by the Faculty of Law, to debate, dispute, place ideas, often bold, with an envied intelligence and ease of expression. Unsurprisingly, his leadership and outstanding personality led him to occupy high positions in student bodies.
