([[Spain]], [[1930]]) Spanish journalist and writer

== Biography ==
He was born in Onda, Castellon, Spain, in 1930, the youngest child of a humble farming and ranching family.

He earned a technical accounting degree from the Official Schools of Technical Qualified Accountants of Melilla and Málaga and a journalism degree from the old Oficial Journalism School of Madrid. He started his journalism career as a correspondent for the ‘Telegrama del Rif ’ and later worked for the weekly ‘Signo,’ ‘La Actualidad Económica,’ the old daily ‘El Alcazar’ published by PESA, the Mexican news bureau AMEX, and the Spanish news bureau EFE, during 17 years, in different positions, like first managing editor of the newly open local bureau of EFE for the Valencia region (Comunidad Valenciana) and editor of national information; later he became the editor of the religion news magazine Vida Nueva.

In the seventies, and as secondary focus, he taught several classes of Journalism Writing en the newly founded School of Journalism of the University of Valencia.
In 1982, he founded the Catholic Union of Media Professionals and Journalist (Unión Católica de Informadores y Periodistas — UCIP), an organization for Catholic journalist and media professional that includes a considerable number of Spanish professionals in that field.

In the years of the Francoist regime, he was part of the small group of demochristian activist opposed to the regime. In 1960 he founded, with former members of the Catholic organization JOC (Spanish acronyms of the Catholic Workers Youth), the Unionist Federation of Workers (Federación Sindical de Trabajadores — FST), an underground union of Christian ideals; the union later folded in the Unionist Workers Association (Unión Sindical Obrera — USO). In 1964 Mr. Alejandro-Guillamón joined the socialist group that was trying to articulate the Spanish Socialist Party (Partido Socialista Obrero Español — PSOE) of that era. He abandoned the socialist party in 1977 after he became disillusioned with the path taken by this party and his uneasiness with the socialists’ Marxism, even if moderate, given his upbringing and personal believes rooted in the tradition of the Spanish political and classical liberalism. It is important to notice that his grandfather and father where big supporters of the Spanish liberal movement. His grandfather was a supporter of the Liberal Party of Sagasta. His father, born in Santa Fe, Isla de Pinos (Cuba), started as a militant of the mentioned Liberal Party, with whom he run and was elected mayor of his small town, Espadilla (Castellón), and later, after the party disappeared during the republic regime, joined the Radical Party of Alejandro Leroux.

The author understands the meaning of person from the Christian point of view, gives to each person individually the supreme dignity, without subordinating one to another, as opposed to what Mounier and Maritain, defended, by saying that the community personalism is like saying that the human acquires its being as part of the group by being a member of the community, instead of by him or herself.
