Sociedad Económica de Amigos del País en Puerto Rico

The Sociedad Económica de Amigos del País en Puerto Rico (1813–1899) was a learned society in Spanish colonial San Juan, Puerto Rico, modelled after the Sociedad Económica de los Amigos del País in Spain.[1] The society published a newspaper, the short-lived Diario Económico de Puerto Rico (1814–1815),[2] and organized a library in 1843. Members included Alejandro Ramírez (a founder)[3] and Manuel Gregorio Tavárez.[4]
