José Justo Corro

Lifespan: (1786 – 1864)
Profession: Lawyer, Politician, Acting President


José Justo Corro (1786?-1864) was a Mexican lawyer and politician. He was acting president of Mexico between 2 March 1836 and 19 April 1837. Although sources vary considerably as to his date of birth, ranging from 1786-1800, we know he was born in Guadalajara where he studied law before he moved to Mexico City. Here he became well-known as a lawyer; he was a conservative and a supporter of Antonio López de Santa Anna. Corro was actually known as the saint due to his devout religious outlook which dominated his political activity. During the interim presidency of Miguel Barragán 18 March 1835-26 February 1836, Corro was minister of justice and ecclesiastical affairs. He formally took over the office of interim presidency on 2 March 1836 after Barragán suffered a fatal bout of typhus on 1 March 1836 with Santa Anna absent fighting rebels in Texas. Santa Anna was captured by the Texan rebels during Corro’s term of office which lasted until 19 April 1837. In response to Santa Ana’s imprisonment, Corro held public masses in aid of his release also attempting to sustain the fighting against the rebels in Texas. During his term in office, both Spain and the Vatican finally recognized Mexican Independence in 1836. It was also under Corro that the 1836 centralist constitution, the Siete Leyes was approved. Corro was thought to be a weak president and he lost popularity due to lack of military and political decisiveness. General Anastasio Bustamente took over the presidency on 19 April 1837. Corro returned to Guadalajara where he died in 1864.
