Dr. Manuel Ferraz de Campos Sales (Portuguese pronunciation: [manuˈew feˈʁas di ˈkɐpus ˈsalis]; 15 February 1841 – 28 June 1913) was a Brazilian lawyer, coffee farmer and politician. He served as a provincial deputy three times, general-deputy once, and also as minister of justice (1889-1891), senator and governor of São Paulo (1896–1897). The pinnacle of his political career was his election as president of Brazil, an office he held between 1898 and 1902. Austere financial reforms were adopted during his tenure.
