Nov. 22, 1965: Santa Fe Postmaster Eleuterio J. Martinez has been a resident of this city all his life.
He was born Sept. 22, 1906, in Santa Fe, the son of the late Florencio Martinez and Marina Rael Martinez.
On completion of his high school education, Martinez entered the teaching profession. He taught in elementary and high schools in New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana. He completed his college education at Loyola University of the South in New Orleans, La., and at Manhattan College, New York.
In 1932 Martinez returned to Santa Fe, taught for another year and was appointed county clerk.
He married the then Miss Frances Ortiz, a school teacher. They are the parents of 10 children.

Martinez, Eleuterio J. [MC???? RIP]
[JR: I assume that he’d be 109 that he’s passed. If not, I’d like someone to interview him about Alma Mater back in the day.]

Good Evening All,
From Jasper Jottings, We share a remembrance of Fellow Jasper, Eleuterio J. Martinez of Santa Fe New Mexico and a resident of Santa Fe. He was born on September 22, 1906 which puts him at the young age of 109. As John Reinke says, it would be nice to interview him about back in the day at Manhattan. We do not know if he is still living and in Santa Fe but I will look into it. A prayer in remembering Mr. Martinez is appreciated. Thank you. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
