During his 87 years, Philippine native Carlos Romulo (1898-1985) was a journalist, statesman, diplomat, soldier and author of more than 20 books. He rose to the rank of general in both the Philippine and U.S. armies and served with Gen. Douglas MacArthur during World War II.
General Romulo was president of the United Nations General Assembly in 1949-1950 and four-time president of the U.N. Security Council. He was recognized by organizations, institutions and nations around the world. His honors included 74 honorary academic degrees and 144 awards and decorations, including the 1942 Pulitzer Prize for Correspondence and a 1952 nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The general’s grandson, Dr. Rodrigo Romulo, will tell us more on Wednesday, 11 May. He will present a narrative of the general’s personal experiences and eye-witness accounts of events on Corregidor and Bataan, Philippines, December 1941 to April 1942, excerpted from General Romulo’s memoirs, including conversations with General Douglas MacArthur, President Manuel Quezon and General Jonathan Wainwright.
