His grandfather, Jaime Câmara, was born in 1909 in the Baixa Verde district (Currently João Câmara, after a um senador from RN), in Rio Grande do Norte. The Newspaper A Razão (‘The Reason’), defended 1930’s Revolution that put an end to the Old Republic in Brazil and took Getúlio Vargas into power. In the early 1930s, even before president Getúlio Vargas announced the March to the West, a New State initiative to encourage the occupation of the middle-west region of the country, he migrated to the former capital of Goiás, Vila Boa. In 1935, created, with Henrique Pinto Vieira, the stationary store and printing office J.Câmara & Co.. The control of the company was taken on by the brothers Jaime Câmara, Joaquim Câmara Filho and Vicente Rebouças Câmara in 1937, when it was transferred to the new capital, Goiânia, and became J. Câmara & Bros..
Jaime Câmara was elected mayor of Goiânia in 1958. In 1966, he was elected substitute Federal Deputy for Goiás under the Aliança Renovadora Nacional (‘National Renewing Alliance’ - ARENA) party. In 1968, was elected federal deputy under Arena, but had his tenure canceled by Institutional Act nº 5, in December 1968. In 1982, was elected under PDS. Both Arena and PDS were parties that supported the military regimen in Brazil.
