José Figueres was President of Costa Rica on three occasions: 1948–1949, 1953–1958 and 1970–1974. During his first term in office he abolished the country's army, nationalized its banking sector, and granted women and blacks the right to vote.

He had an uneasy relationship with the CIA, who twice tried but failed to assassinate him.[1]
