Luis Alberto Félix Sánchez Sánchez (* Lima, October 12, 1900 - Lima, February 6, 1994) was a Peruvian lawyer, jurist, philosopher, historian, writer and politician. A historic member of the Peruvian Aprista Party, he became a Senator and member of two Constitutional Assembly's, in which the second one (1978-1980), he occupied the Vice-Presidency of the Assembly and the Presidency of the Constitution Committee. During the Presidency of Alan García (1985-1990), he was his Vice President and was appointed for a short period as Prime Minister of Peru. In Congress he served as President of the Senate two non consecutive times (1965-1966; 1985-1986)

The figure of Luis Alberto Sanchez covers most of the century. Was three times Provost of the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. Together with Raúl Porras Barrenechea and Jorge Guillermo Leguia was one of the leading figures of the Conversation University founded in 1919 with the participation, among others, Victor Raul Haya de la Torre Jorge Basadre Carlos Paz Soldan Moreyra, Ricardo Garcia and Jose Luis Vegas Llosa Belaunde.

Among his literary works and news articles we have a large amount from Garcilaso Inca de la Vega, first Creole (1939), Aladdin or life and work of Jose Santos Chocano (1960), process and content of the Latin American novel (1968), comparative History of American literature (1973-1976), to Indianism and Indigenism in Peruvian literature (1981).

But his main work and the dearest was dedicated to Manuel González Prada, which took shape with titles like 'Don Manuel' (1930), 'Myth and Reality of Gonzalez Prada' (1976), 'Our lives are the rivers ... History and legend of González Prada' (1977) and a substantial variety of editions of the work of González Prada. As a politician, was a prominent figure of the Peruvian Aprista Party and scored the second most votes, after Victor Raul Haya de la Torre, during the general elections to constitute the Constituent Assembly in 1979. At the end of his life, in 1990 he was elected Senator and served until the closing of Congress by the self-coup of Alberto Fujimori. He died shortly in 1994, dedicating his last days for writing.
