Isauro Gabaldon
Birth: Dec. 8, 1875
Central Luzon, Philippines
Death: Dec. 21, 1942
Manila
National Capital, Philippines

Philippine Statesman. He was educated in Spain, received a law degree from Manila's Saint Thomas University in 1900, and became an attorney. He served as Governor of Nueva Ecija Province in 1906, and a member of the Philippines House of Representatives from 1907 to 1911. He served as Governor again from 1912 to 1916, and then became a member of the Philippines Senate, serving until 1919. Gabaldon earned a reputation throughout the Philippines as an education activist, authoring laws to construct new facilities ("Gabaldon Schools") throughout the country to replace schools destroyed in the 1890s during the fight for independence from Spain and the Spanish-American War. He was also known as an advocate for the rights of tenant farmers and laborers. In 1919 Gabaldon was the successful Nationalist candidate to serve as the Philippines Resident Commissioner to the US House of Representatives. He was reelected in 1923 and 1925, and served from March, 1920 until he resigned in July, 1928. Gabaldon decided to end his term because the Coolidge administration did not support Philippines independence, and he returned home to continue advocating for full autonomy. He also became active in several businesses, which included sugar plantations, an oil company, and gold mines. (bio by: Bill McKern)
