The history of the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso is closely tied with that of Valparaiso, a city built by immigrants from all over the world. One of these was John Brown Diffin, who arrived from the United States to Valparaiso in 1832. There, he established a construction company of great renown. Years later, in 1845, this immigrant entrepreneur asked for the hand of Isabel Caces, a member of a wealthy local family. When Isabel Caces de Brown passed away in 1916, she left her daughters Isabel and Maria Teresa the task of administering charity work with their inheritance. The daughters debated how to best fulfill their mothers final wishes with father Ruben Castro Rojas and Rafael Ariztia (Maria Teresas husband). Within these conversations, the idea of constructing a business and polytechnical University in Valparaiso was slowly formed V its name would be the Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso. The purpose of this institution would be to educate the youth of the port city (as well as spread science, art, craft, technical knowledge, and business practices) in order to establish the region as a national standard.
