Americans in The Philippines

I love these images depicting the lives of The Coast and Geodetic Survey's members based in the Philippines. After the Spanish-American war, the Philippines became US territory, and several officers were sent to explore the country's culture, biology, and life. Stay posted for images of the several tribes the Americans encountered.
