Spanish doctor and politician. Zaragoza was one of the founders of the Spanish University Syndicate (SEU), and José Antonio Primo de Rivera's friend. During the Spanish Civil War, he joined the Franco Army as a medical lieutenant. In 1940, he was appointed local leader of the Spanish Falangist Movement in Altea, and provincial secretary of the National Movement. Later on, he worked as a volunteer in the Blue Division. In 1948, Zaragoza ran as Attorney at the Courts through the military aristocracy, but he wasn't elected. Two years later, in 1951, he was appointed vice-president of the Medical School of Alicante, being also member of the Franco Guard, the president of the Anonymous Society of Valencian Studies (EVASA) and leader of the Executive Board of Alicante (province). From 1960, Zaragoza began to be integrated into the close circle of Juan de Borbón. In 1977 he joined UCD, being elected deputy for Alicante in the Constituent Legislature, and second vice-president of the Permanent Council at the Congress of Deputies. On January 1978 he resigned from his post, when he was named director of the National Institute of Welfare. He was re-elected in the I Legislature (1979-1982). In 1982, Zaragoza was a regional deputy at the Valencian Courts, and after UCD's dissolution, he was one of the driving forces to create Provincial Union of Alicante (UFRA). His last political activity was in the 1987 regional elections, when he ran with Valencian Electoral Coalition unsuccessfully.
