Blue plaque commemorates life of Salvador de Madariaga (1886-1978)

A plaque has been unveiled to mark the Oxford residence of Salvador de Madariaga (1886-1978), who became an honorary fellow of Exeter College in 1942.

Salvador de Madariaga was a Spanish writer, diplomat and pacifist. He was made the King Alfonso XIII Chair of Spanish Studies at Oxford in 1928 and was one of the principal authors of the Oxford Manifesto, a document which describes the basic political principles of the Liberal International.

The plaque was unveiled earlier this month, in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Oxford and members of Salvador de Madariaga’s family. It is situated at Box Tree House, 3 St Andrew’s Road, Old Headington, Oxford and commemorates the 35 years that Salvador de Madariaga lived there.
