Gustavo Silva Pizarro was a Chilean lawyer, political scientist and the 6th Mayor of the commune of Pichilemu, office which he held for nine years between May 1915 and May 1924.

Biography[edit]

Gustavo Silva Pizarro obtained a degree in Law and Political Sciences from the University of Chile on 15 November 1909, subsequently becoming a lawyer.[1]

He married Lucía Silva Henríquez, sister of Catholic Cardinal Raúl Silva Henríquez, with whom he had nine children: Raúl, Lucía, Teresa, Patricio, Enrique, Ricardo, Bernardo (married with Mónica Donoso Flores), Andrés (married with Yolanda Oelkers Robles), and Mercedes (married with Hugo Donoso Donoso).[2]

Political career and mayorship of Pichilemu[edit]

Gustavo Silva Pizarro was elected mayor (primer alcalde) of Pichilemu in 1915 for a three-year term, and re-elected for the 1918–21 and 1921–24 terms. In the 1924 election, Luis Barahona Fornés was elected mayor and Silva Pizarro was relegated to a regidor office for the 1924–1927 term.[3][4]

During Silva Pizarro's tenure as mayor of Pichilemu, on 2 January 1919, the municipality contracted for the first time a doctor, Joaquín Browne, to provide health services for the commune.[5]
