Biography

After the Spanish-American War, the United States continued its military presence in the Philippines. The Philippine-American War of 1899-1902 grew out of tension surrounding that presence as well as the policy of the US government not to recognize the sovereignty of the Philippines' new government. The collection is comprised of material from both sides of the conflict.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Harry Dey series contains documents, photographs, records, and memorabilia related to American military presence in the Philippines before and during the war. It also contains photographs related to military life in and around San Francisco, CA. The Leyte and Samar Revolutionary Papers series contains documents, records, and correspondence from Philippine military sources, including Mariano Pacheco and Ambrosio Moxica.
