  • Abstract

    Civil service documents of the teaching career of a Welsh-born American (b.1874) in various Philippine Islands schools, ca. 1900-1925.

    In 1903 a young couple, Adam and Agnes Derkum, left Los Angeles to work as teachers in the Philippine Islands. A quarter of a century later, having held a number of different assignments in various provincial schools, the Derkums returned to this city with the four children they had raised overseas. Adam Derkum, who had studied at USC, later gave a collection of letters and documents about their Philippine years to the University.
