Gray Love: The Career of Gov. John Early in the Cordilleras


Unlike the usual portrayals of racism of American colonial officials in the Philippines, this article explores the career of John Early, a mid-level official who rose to become the governor of the Mountain Province in 1922 until his death in 1932.

The article asserts the complex nature of human motives.
