Forestry College at Los Baños, Philippines

Written by Edward Beckwith on Sunday, July 21, 1940

Drove up the mountain and walked on the unfinished part of the road, taking a good many pictures. It rained later and Mrs. Curran brought lunch to the Kubo. The road up the mountain, still under construction was beautiful and bordered with a very interesting forest.

We had dinner with the Currans as usual and I took some flashlights of the family later, also tried some movies with Hugo’s camera using a photo flood.
