Wikipedia:
Isidro Ramon Antonio Ayora Cueva (August 31, 1879 – March 22, 1978) was an Ecuadorian political figure. He served as the 22nd President of Ecuador from 1926 to 1931.

**********

Making his early studies in his hometown, he made career in medicine at the Central University of Quito, where he graduated in medicine and surgery with the thesis "Biological laws and their applications". He completed his training in Germany, where he specialized in obstetrics and Gynecology, at the University of Berlin. After returning to Ecuador, he was dedicated to the practice of his profession and teaching: Isidro Ayora addressed motherhood; he founded a nurses' school at the San Juan de Dios Hospital. He also founded, together with Drs. Ángel Sáenz and Ricardo Villavicencio, a surgical clinic; and he was the second President of the Ecuadorian Red Cross. He served as professor of obstetrics at the Central University, becoming Dean of the Faculty of medicine and then, from 1925, as Rector of the Central University.

**********

Isidro Ayora withdrew from the field of politics, and returned to the exercise of their profession in the clinic. In 1955 the University of Berlin awarded him an honorary doctorate.

From the point view of the scientist, he was one of the first to practice modern obstetrics in Quito.
