"He died at 9:40PM on the night of April 21st, 1965. Dozens of family members, friends and admirers of Don Pedro Albizu Campos waited since early in the afternoon his inevitable passing, at the Hato Rey home where he lived. When doctor Ricardo Cordero announced his death, there was general commotion among the uneasy group. Men and women; the young and the old, embraced indicating reciprocal condolences."
