My Father's Picture in Tau Alpha Fraternity, UP

 I got this message from Chris Doctor in response to my blog entry, The Schools I Attended - Part 2, UP & Maryknoll.  I was very happy to see the picture of my father, front, seated, fifth from right, in a dark suit.

Because World War II destroyed many pictures of my parents, I saw only one other picture of my father before the War, so this is very special. Thank you Chris Doctor and regards to Tau Alpha Frat

Dear Cecilia,
Prof. Mariano Manguerra was Tau Alpha's first faculty adviser. He was a professor in civil engineering.

We have photo of him on our Tau Alpha Facebook Page.

Go to the bottom of the page and click on the photo.

"Prof. Mariano F. Manguerra and his wife, the former Concepcion Cuenco of Cebu, were the kindest and most understanding of advisers. They were second parents to the ingenious and idealistic kids (yes, we were kids!) that were always ready for us. Our relationship with them was close and continued even after college years."  ~ Excerpt by Angel Francisco Gutierrez de Jesus, Batch 32 Tau Alpha
