He is efficient, although re- garded as having only fair,ability.. His long residence in England is reflected in his speech and mannerisms He is a cousin of Juan Bautista de Lavalle.,. Peru's Ambassador' to the Organization of ?Anier- ican States, and on his father's side is related to several prominent Colombian families. I/ Holguin is a career diplomat who has attained his present position after some thirty years in the service. Although it is believed that he does not have any great influence in Peru, he is known to have been very close to Manuel de Freyre y Santander, Peruvian Ambassador to the United States for many years under whom he served in the Tacna-Arica Plebiscite Commission; to ex-President Benevides, under whom he served when the latter was Minister in London; to ex-President Prado and more recently to ex-President Bustamante. Holguin is noted for his cautiousness in expressing himself on in- ternational questions and for this reason, little is known of his true views with countries other than the United States, toward which he is very friendly; Spain toward which he is probably friendly in view of his Spanish background, and Chile. He is said to have been strongly anti-Chilean during the 1920's. 1/ At the General Assembly in New York in 1947 Holguin was exception- ally cooperative and friendly with U.S. delegates. He seemed to agree with all U.S. positions and was willing to give any information re- garding the stand of his own delegation.
