Casado, Carlos (1833–1899)

Carlos Casado (b. 16 March 1833; d. 29 June 1899). Born in Valencia, Spain, Casado immigrated to Argentina in 1857 and opened a business in the city of Rosario in Santa Fe Province. He also established a private bank that became one of the foundations for the offices of the Bank of London and the Río de la Plata that opened in Rosario in 1868. In 1870 he set up the Candelaria agricultural colony, promoting the immigration of European agricultural workers and realizing the first major export shipment of wheat to Europe. Casado organized a company of wheat mills, promoted the construction of docks in the Rosario port, and was a founder and president of the Banco de Santa Fe, a leading commercial bank. He was also elected counselor of the city government of Rosario.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
