Talk summary

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.
