18 October - Sociologist's Day in Dominican Republic
By means of Law No. 43 of November 3, 1982, the Congress of the Dominican Republic set aside October 18 of each year to celebrate the day of Bonó, the first sociologist of the country, which is why this day is celebrated as the national day of the Dominican sociologist. This law was published in the Official Gazette No. 9600 of November 16, 1982.
Pedro Francisco Bonó is considered the first Dominican sociologist. He was born in the northern province of Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, on October 18, 1828.
He studied law and practiced as a lawyer, writer and politician. He held several public positions in the judiciary of his hometown. He was also Senator of the Republic and Deputy to the Constituent Congress of 1857 in Moca. General Gregorio Luperón offered him the presidency of the Republic on three occasions, but he never accepted.
