56. QUEZONIANA Collection (Pres. Manuel L. Quezon Memorabilia)

Manuel L Quezon's photos during his early 20's
By collecting Pres. Quezon’s memorabilia I pay homage to this foremost statesman, patriot, and leader. It is my hope that our people will continue to remember the great Pres. Quezon through these items, in the years to come and will forever bear in our mind his love for freedom and independence.

President Quezon left many important legacies to us Filipinos. Some of which worth mentioning were his courage in fighting for our freedom and independence in peace or war. He was a brilliant young practicing lawyer; he strongly campaigned for Philippine independence in the U.S.A, he had wisdom in the performance of his duties and responsibilities as Senate President and subsequently President of the Philippines, he had a dynamic and inspiring leadership not only of his political party but also of the country, He was a passionate nationalist, he had unquestionable honesty and integrity as a public official, and he was very loyal and had total dedication to the welfare and happiness of his beloved Fatherland.  We are heirs to the visions and struggles of Quezon and must protect our freedom that he fought for.

I hope that these memorabilia would inspire us and that we may lead a life just like our beloved President Quezon.

Banquet in Honor of Manuel L Quezon for his success in having the Jones Bill passed by the Congress of the United States.
The Jones Bill provides that the grant of independence would come only "as soon as a stable government can be established", which gave the United States Government the power to determine when this "stable government" has been achieved. It aimed at providing the Filipino people broader domestic autonomy, though it reserved certain privileges to the United States  to protect their sovereign rights and interests.
