Bulletin of the American Historical Collection Vol. 39 nos. 1&2
(29 November 2012)
This double issued for 2011 features an article on Austin Craig, who was one of Jose Rizal's most dedicated biographers and rare photos from Craig's album. It also includes some fascinating notes and commentary by Mary Fee, who was an early Thomasite stationed on Panay. The issue has contributions on the early Filipino pensionados to America, the Manila Boat Club, and on the Peace Corps, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary in the Philippines. The intervening pages offer book reviews, poem, and recipes, some new and some from the AHC Library archives.
