Lic. Victor Hugo Gonzalez Rosas

Victor Hugo Gonzalez Rosas was born in Manzanillo, Colima in 1969.

He was graduated from the University of Colima with honors, and majored in political science and history.

As a local historian and former reporter for the local newspaper, "El Correo," he gained experience so he could go on to compile one of the most complete collections of photographs of Manzanillo's history.

Collecting and restoring old photos, and documenting Manzanillo's history has been a project for Sr. Gonzales Rosas for more than 17 years.

He recently was presented with the prestigious "Citizen of the Year" award by Mayor Martha Sosa, for his efforts in recording Manzanillo's history, totally without remuneration.

Gonzalez Rosas is currently writing a book entitled, "The Photographic History of Manzanillo," to be published at the end of this year.

Many photos included in our text on the "History of Manzanillo" page have been donated to our web site,, by Sr. Gonzalez Rosas. His current efforts are to raise funds to open a museum with photos, documents and other artifacts from Manzanillo's history. For more information, contact
