From all the history lessons they have taken, Filipinos are well aware of Manuel L. Quezon — a statesman, soldier and politician who served as President of the Commonwealth of the Philippines from 1935 to 1944. He was the first Filipino to head a government of the entire country and is considered to be the second president of the Phi­lippines, after Emilio Aguinaldo.
