Original impressionistic ink drawing.
Éamon de Valera was born on 14 October 1882 in New York City, the son of Catherine Coll an Irishwoman originally from Bruree, County Limerick—and Juan Vivion de Valera, described on the birth certificate as an artist born in Spain.
De Valera was a leader in the War of Independence and of the anti-Treaty opposition in the ensuing Irish Civil War (1922–1923). After leaving Sinn Féin in 1926 due to its policy of abstentionism, he founded Fianna Fáil, and was head of government (President of the Executive Council, later Taoiseach) from 1932 to 1948, 1951 to 1954, and 1957 to 1959, when he resigned after being elected as President of Ireland. His political creed evolved from militant republicanism to social and cultural conservatism.
