This essay is dedicated to Noranians and/or Sharonians in my life (who may or may not share my views!): Joya Escobar, Val Lim, Joi Barrios, Joel David, Napoleon Lustre, Anya Leonardia, Kelly Wolf, Chammy Uy, Blanca Ocampo-Lim, Marlene Oviedo-Marmo, and Ninay Santos-Morales. My research for this article would not have been possible without the valuable Filipiniana periodical archives at the Main Library of the University of the Philippines (UP), Diliman, and the Rizal Library of the Ateneo de Manila University. My thanks to the Reference and Filipiniana librarians of the Rizal Library at Ateneo and to Regina Murillo and Wilma Azarcon of the UP Main Library. I am also grateful to Margot Orendain and Lulu Reyes for facilitating my summer 2009 visiting professorship with the Ateneo de Manila Department of English, during which I conducted archival research for this essay at the Rizal library.
