Dr Daniel Nuñez del Prado

Dr. Daniel Nuñez del Prado (29 July 1840 in La Paz, Bolivia – 1891) was a revolutionary Bolivian doctor of medicine. His parents were Dr Maria José Nuñez del Prado and Isabel del Valle. His brother, Eduardo Nuñez del Prado, was also a doctor of medicine.

President Mariano Melgarejo expelled Nuñez del Prado from Bolivia.[1] The reason was that Rosa Zeballos Tomayo, the wife of Nuñez del Prado denied General Melgarejo access to her house during a parade. It is one of the historical buildings in the city of La Paz. Years later, Don Daniel urgently was requested to attend a patient who had been shot dead in Lima. The patient was General Melgarejo. The last confession from former president Melgarejo was that he was with Don Daniel Nuñez del Prado.
