NUNEZ, Jorge Alberto. Juan José O'Connor (1890-1942): mind, soul and nerve of the argentine prison system. Rev. hist. derecho [online]. 2018, n.56, pp.75-104. ISSN 1853-1784.

This paper examines the figure of Juan José O'Connor, promoter of the sanction of Law 11.833 of Prison Organization and Penalty Regime (which created the current Argentine penitentiary system), first General Director of Penitentiary Institutes and Juvenile Judge, among other positions held.

Despite his importance for the Argentinean prison system, O'Connor has not been the object of attention in the social and legal historiography that studies the administration of state punishment. We do not have any academic work that analyzes in depth O'Connor's work in the field of prisons.

Therefore, on this occasion, we will investigate the vindication of O'Connor made by the prison corporation from his death to the present day; we will present also a brief biographical sketch on O'Connor and the details of the sanction of Law 11.833.

Palabras clave : O'Connor; Prison system; Argentina.
