The parents of Socrates Nolasco (as he is usually called) were Juliana Nolasco and Manuel Henriquez y Carvajal. Some of his formative years, from 1906 to 1913, were spent in Cuba, in the city of Santiago de Cuba, and he later returned to that nearby country, to Havana, living there from 1951 to 1954.
