Title: United States Archives in the Philippines, 1898-1921 
Author: Beredo, Cheryl
Date: 2010-09-13
Description: Cheryl Beredo chronicles the establishment and growth of the Bureau of Archives, a part of the United States' government in the Philippines. Exploring its rich, complex, and understudied history within the context of the colonial administration in the islands, Beredo, an archivist by training, asks: "If roads brought economic development of the Philippines, schools molded model citizens, civil service trained skilled laborers, and a bicameral legislature transformed natives into self-governable subjects, what did the state archive offer?"

A graduate of Cornell University and the University of Pittsburgh, Ms. Beredo is completing her doctorate in American Studies at the University of Hawai’i. She worked as an archivist at Cornell and Harvard universities and was a fellow at the Massachusetts Historical Society. Over the past year, she conducted archival research in the Philippines and the continental U.S.

Co-sponsored by the Association of Hawaii Archivists, Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program, and UHM Library. Video only available to the UH Community.
