“Mark Rice, professor and chair of American studies at St. John Fisher College, in Rochester, New York, rightly thanks his institution for the support needed to investigate — across a number of US institutions, the vast American colonial Philippine archive of more than twenty thousand negatives, prints, lantern slides, and some film, all produced, assembled, and sold in large chunks of prints between 1887 and 1915 by the zoologist turned anthropologist, writer, photographer, and US Insular Government official Dean Conant Worcester (1866–1924), D.Sc. (hon.), FRGS. Dr. Rice’s interest in the Philippines evolved from his experiences as a Peace Corps volunteer in the 1980s. This lucidly written and well-referenced case study has been published by Worcester’s alma mater, the University of Michigan.” Gael Newton • Trans-Asia Photography Review
