    Will try to make it for your lecture. I did some research on Joseph Kamel SJ and this came out in the UP centennial book on Essays in science and development

    I wonder if you can tell me anything about my grandmother’s cousin, Tom Cannon, S.J.,
    who was a member (possibly the head) of the Philippine mission in the 1960s.

    Thanks.

    Hi Lucy,

    I searched his name in the web. I found some tidbits. His full name is Fr. Thomas B. Cannon, S.J. He was the Dean of Journalism in Ateneo de Manila University, and also became a Director for Vocations. He wrote a history book, “Jesuits in the Philippines (1899-1934).”

    I shall inform you if I found other things about Fr. Tom.

    Quirino
