Among the countless objects of interest in Special Collections is a set of some 80 photographs of Philippine peoples taken in the early 20th century by a professional photographer. Though unstated, the photographer may have been Charles Martin, a prominent government photographer of that period. The photographs form part of the large manuscript collection of Howard and Anna Brinton (Coll. no. 1189, box 50), and were most likely brought to the U.S. by Anna Brinton’s uncle, Alvin J. Cox who traveled to the Philippines in 1917 as Director in the Bureau of Science in the Department of Agriculture. The photographs are of people in the mountainous region of northern Luzon, Philippines, as well of Muslim people from the Lanao region in Mindanao in the southern Philippines. Anyone interested in seeing these photographs is welcome to do so in Special Collections.
