Interrogating Presidential Papers: The Ferdinand Marcos Diaries

September 1, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, John A. Burns Hall, Room 4111, 1601 East-West Road

Please join us for a Public Seminar with Professor Ambeth Ocampo of Ateneo de Manila University

These handwritten diaries, spanning the years 1969-1984, were left behind by Ferdinand Marcos and his family when they fled the presidential palace in February 1986. Since then, they have been in the custody of the Presidential Commission on Good Government. Professor Ocampo is preparing the diaries for publication, collating from different manuscript sources, and annotating from newspapers and the Official Gazette. He will present an assessment of Marcos’ own view of events during years chronicled by the diaries.

Ambeth Ocampo is a professor at the Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City, Philippines. He is the Philippines’ top scholar on Philippines’ national hero José Rizal about whom he has written several books. He writes a column on Philippine history for the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
