This chapter focuses on Emilio Rabasa' final years until his death on 25 April 1930. Although virtually blind, Rabasa published several articles in Excelsior in the year before his death. His final articles, “El Desprestigio de la vicepresidencia,” appeared on the third and fourth of that month. Although he probably had given up his work as a lawyer by 1925, he continued to teach constitutional law at the Escuela Libre de Derecho at least through 1928, as well as acting as rector of the institution at the time of his death. The chapter also considers Rabasa's political ideas, which were based on the transformed liberalism of the late nineteenth century, consisting of scientific politics, derived from positivism, and historical constitutionalism, also of European origin but thoroughly rooted in earlier Mexican history. Both strands of transformed liberalism emerged with the first term of Porfirio Díaz in 1878 and came together in the program of the National Liberal Union in 1892, followed by the great debate of 1893 over reforms to the Constitution.
