Abstract:

The Rita M. Cacas Filipino American Community Archives documents Filipino American communities in the Washington, D.C., Metro area (including Maryland and Northern Virginia) and in the state of Maryland more broadly. The collection also documents significant historic events related to the transition of U.S. occupation of the Philippines (1900-1947) to the country's independence, including Filipino military and government service under the U.S. in the two World Wars. Included are evidences of historic special events such as dances, celebrations and receptions, and social/professional clubs of D.C. area Filipinos. Family records include the Cacas, Fune-Palangdao, Panaganiban-Chapman, Quidangen-Sarmiento, and Toribio families among several others. Finally, the collection contains materials related to art, research, and publishing projects completed by Rita M. Cacas. Materials in the archive include photographs, correspondence, newspaper clippings, publications, ephemera, audiovisual materials, and electronic records. The Rita M. Cacas Foundation (RMCF) has partnered with the UMD Libraries to create this collection and supports the community archives in a variety of ways.
