Guerrilla Recognition Files: Accessing the New Digital Archive

Join the Filipino & Philippine Studies Working Group for a talk on the Guerrilla Recognition Files from the Brigadier-General Francisco H. Licuanan, Jr. Collection. The recently digitized collection at the U.S. National Archives contains 280,000 primary source materials on guerrilla activities, unit histories, and civilian life during World War II. Project convener Marie Vallejo will discuss the materials and will provide a demonstration on how to access the rich content now publicly available to scholars, students, and all interested in this period of Philippine history. 

The digitized collection and this talk are made possible through support from the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office, Filipino War Veterans Foundation, and GeoState Development Corporation.
