Malacañan Palace: Readings and Pictures
The National Geographic documentary Inside Malacañang has received a wide viewership (see the President’s Speech and my Statement). My overview of the Palace in the documentary is derived from my essay, Prize, Pulpit, and Stage, From Malacañan Palace: The Official Illustrated History by Manuel L. Quezon III, Jeremy Barns, and Paolo Alcazaren, Studio 5 Publishing, Manila, 2005.
Visit the Presidential Museum and Library website. There you can find an Overview of the History of Malacañan Palace, a description of the State Rooms and Historic Rooms. See the Official Gazette for a Briefer on Bahay Pangarap and Malacañang Park.You can also read about Malacañan Palace in the Time of Rizal, while he Diary of Francis Burton Harrison in The Philippine Diary Project, contains entries on official life in the Palace in the 1930s. In the Palace of the People, by Yay Marking, takes the reader from the 1930s to the early 1960s.
