A Mi Patria Joins Silent O and Ultimo Adios in Gallaudet University Archives

August 3, 2013

Last July 29, my family and I went to Gallaudet University located in Florida Avenue, Washington, D. C. to meet Ms. Diana Moore, the university Deaf Librarian Collections and Archives Head to donate a copy of “A mi Patria — 5 Selected Poems of Jose Rizal in Filipino Sign Language.” I also gave a copy of “Collection Building: Filipininana,” a compilation of my brother’s writings on Filipiniana. Ms. Moore toured us around the library and showed the exhibit on Peace Corps featuring the works of Deaf volunteers.

With A mi Patria, I also gave Gallaudet’s Library a copy of “Collection Building: Filipiniana,” the last book I published on my brother’s compilation of writings on Filipiniana.
