About the Philippine Diary Project

diary |ˈdīərē|

noun ( pl. diaries )

a book in which one keeps a daily record of events and experiences: I resolved to keep a diary of events during the war.

• a datebook.

ORIGIN late 16th cent.: from Latin diarium, from dies ‘day.’

This project aims to make diaries written by both famous and unknown Filipinos, and foreigners writing about the Philippines, available to the public. It is a non-profit site. As much as possible, diaries that are out of print,  released only in limited print runs, or or which were published online in defunct websites, have been included in order to more fully disseminate those diaries. This diary also features diaries that have never been published either in part or in full.

We welcome committed volunteers and those willing to lend assistance scanning, encoding, and proofreading entries.

This site was set up in April, 2008 and is owned, and managed, by Manuel L. Quezon III. It transferred from WordPress to its own domain in September, 2013.

    My grandfather, Rafael Bonanza was supposedly part of the crew on this ship. Please let me know where I can find the list of crew members. My search has been unsuccessful. Thank you for your assistance.

    Dear Mr Quezon
    The website page for Francis Harrison for 29th September 1943 mentions two telegrams from MacArthur to Quezon apparently dated 25th and 27th September. I am researching MacArthur and would very much like to get copies of these if extant. Do you have these or know where copies may be obtained?
    Many thanks
