Eduardo Casey

Eduardo Casey was an Argentine born of Irish parents in 1847 in Buenos Aires. In 1880 he purchased 1,700 square miles (4,400 km2) of land in Santa Fe Province and founded there the present-day city of Venado Tuerto, named after a one-eyed deer that alerted early settlers to attacks by local Indians. He also helped in the founding and funding of the Argentine town of Pigüé, Saavedra in 1884.
