A previous find by a DumagueteInfo member of a postcard sent by Laura Hubbard back in 1911.. Silliman University was established in 1901 by Protestant missionaries of the Presbyterian church in the United States. The man burdened to give the initial seed money was Dr. Horace B. Silliman. The Presbyterian Board sent David Hubbard and his wife Laura, two Christian teachers to begin the school. It became the first Protestant school founded in the Philippines and the oldest Christian University in Asia. Seems like we ought to throw a party or something..
