Warwick in the Philippines

Warwick of Liberty

Warwick presented the keynote address at the 5th International Conference on the History of Medicine in Southeast Asia, Ateneo de Manila University, 9-11 January.

Here, he has a shot at La Liberté éclairant le monde – à Baguio. This statue stands in the grounds of Camp John Hay, formerly US military base and Japanese concentration camp, now a recreational complex outside Baguio City. This replica of the grander statue in New York Harbour was gifted to the Filipinos by the Americans in 1981, though  Filipinos were generally not admitted to the Camp until the site was returned by the US a decade later.
