From 1888 he contributed to the newspapers El Siglo and El Tiempo. He took an active part in the reform of the educational system in the late 19th century. He was rector of the University of the Republic of Uruguay in 1904–06, minister of industry in 1911–12, director of the state bank in 1914–24, general director of elementary and pedagogical schools in 1925–29, and president of state administration of combustibles, alcohol, and cement production in 1931–33.
