Huerta, Adolfo de la

Adolfo de la Huerta (ädôl´fō ŧħā lä wār´tä), c.1882–1955, Mexican revolutionist and president (May–Dec., 1920). As governor of Sonora, he broke with President Carranza and declared the secession of the state (1920). This was a signal for the successful revolt against Carranza led by Obregón and supported by Calles. After Carranza's murder, de la Huerta was provisional president until Obregón took office by election; during his tenure a settlement was reached with Villa. He was minister of finance under Obregón. Upon the designation of Calles as official presidential candidate, de la Huerta revolted (Dec., 1923); the uprising was crushed by Obregón in the spring of 1924, and de la Huerta was sent into exile in the United States. He was recalled (1935) by Lázaro Cárdenas to serve in diplomatic posts.
