About Walter William Marquardt

Walter William Marquardt came to the Philippines as a pioneering teacher in 1902, and was first assigned to Tanauan, Leyte. He was 5'7" and had grey eyes and brown hair.

In his early years in the barrio, upon introduction of gardening, he related how his students brought their servants to tend to the plots -- a reminder of the class system the Spanish institutionalized. He served as a regent of the University of the Philippines. He spent 18 years in the country -- his three sons were all born in Manila.

In 1921, he penned a pamphlet called "What Filipino Students Coming to America Ought to Know", which became an important guide for government pensionados.

One of his sons, Frederick S. Marquardt wrote an essay about the life of early American teachers in the Philippines, which was included in the anthology "Tales of the American Teachers in the Philippines" published in 1959.
