SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
F
ilipinos have been a part of the history of the United States and San
Diego for over 400 years. The Manila-Acapulco galleon trade ships
included Filipinos on sailing expeditions to California, including the
port of San Diego. After the Philippines became a territory of the United
States in 1898, many Filipinos began immigrating to San Diego. The
community grew rapidly, particularly in the 1920s and 1930s. After World
War II, Filipino veterans returned with their war brides and the community
began to further build. The Immigration Act of 1965 increased Filipino
immigration into San Diego to include military personnel, especially
those enlisted in the U.S. Navy, as well as professionals. Today Filipino
Americans are the largest Asian American ethnic group in San Diego.
Dr. Judy Patacsil is a second-generation Filipina American born in
San Diego to pioneering immigrant parents. Dr. Rudy Guevarra Jr. is a
fourth-generation Filipino American, born and raised in San Diego, and
is a descendant of pioneering Filipino great-grandparents. Professor Felix
Tuyay has taught Asian American Studies and Filipino American History
for over 30 years. The San Diego chapter of the Filipino American National
Historical Society (FANHS) is an active community organization. The
mission of FANHS is to promote understanding, education, enlightenment,
appreciation, and enrichment through the identification, gathering,
preservation, and dissemination of the history and culture of Filipino
Americans in the United States.
The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods,
towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title
presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of
the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of
local heritage, making history available to all.
