El Autor de los "Ojos Tristes"En esta casa vivió su infancia el laureado escritor y poeta Don Alfredo Aguilar Alfaro, quien naciera en la población de Calotmul, Yucatán el 20 de Octubre de 1902; sus primeros estudios los realizó en Valladolid hasta que, a la llegada de Salvador Alvarado a Yucatán, su familia se trasladó a Mérida. Sus primeros libros fuerton "De mis Senderos" y "La Divina Ociosidad" editados ambos en la Ciudad de México, el primero en 1928 y el segundo en 1940. En el año de 1943 obtuvo el primer lugar de los Juegos Florales de Valladolid con su "Canto a Valladolid". Fueron muy pocos los versos de Alfredo Aguilar Alfaro que fueron convertidos en canción, siendo el tema más conocido "Ojos tristes" que fue musicalizado por Guty Cárdenas. Otras canciones con letra suya son "En un Minuto de Ilusión" musicalizada por Ricardo Palmerín y a la que Guty pensaba ponerle música, cosa que no llegó a ocurrir debido a su inesperado asesinato. Este mismo poema fue musicalizado por Ermilio Padrón, José Diaz Bolio y José Antonio Castillo. Jesús Haro y Tamariz musicalizó su poema "Ya Nunca Más"; El Chel Solís, "Solamente Una Vez"; Héctor Aguilar Quiroz, "Sublime Visión"; Fausto Cámara Zavala "Beso
Santo"; Carlos Cadena, "Como Blancas Magnolias"; Manuel López Barbeito "Como Pétalo en la Flor" y "Dos Luceros"; Ricardo Pasos Peniche, "Los Bucles de tu Pelo"; Pepe Dominguez, "Por el Camino y la Huella".English:The Author of "Ojos Tristes" (Sad Eyes)Laureate writer and poet Don Alfredo Aguilar Alfaro lived in this house during his childhood.
