Kol de Alvarenga (1892-1967), agricultural engineer and author, a native of Lisbon, occupied important official posts, mostly in the Ministrio da Agricultura. Frequent contributor to newspapers and reviews devoted to agriculture, he was also a critic of art and literature. His library was sold at auction by Soares & Mendona, with Manuel Ferreira as expert in 1968 and a preface by Pedro Veiga, the catalogue consisting of three volumes, containing over 8,000 lots.Renascena Portuguesa was a cultural and civic group founded in 1911 by Teixeira de Pascoaes, Jaime Corteso, Ral Proena, Antnio Srgio, Leonardo Coimbra, çlvaro Pinto, Augusto Casimiro, and others. The group's literary review, ç Aguia, continued publication until 1932. Pascoaes, Proena, and Srgio soon disagreed on the long-term goals of Renascena Portuguesa, and the movement became the mouthpiece of Saudosismo. The educational influence of the Renascena Portuguesa continued to be felt through its Universidades Populares and hundreds of publications under the Renascena Portuguesa imprint on history, law, economy, literature, etc. On Renascena Portuguesa, see Mrio Garcia in Biblos IV, 694.*** See Guerra Andrade, Dicionrio de pseudnimos e iniciais p. 190; Grande enciclopdia, II, 196; Actualizao, I, 255.
