THE Lopez Museum and Library will hold the second lecture of its Off the Pages Lecture Series. The lecture, “Inhabit,” which discusses the impact of infectious diseases in military operations during the Philippine American War (1899-1902), will be held on Sept. 16, 2 p.m.-4 p.m., at the Lopez Museum and Library.

During the US colonization period in the Philippines, infectious diseases became commonplace within military regiments when conducting tours within tropical countries. And in attempting to control the epidemic, quarantine came surveillance. What else came at the expense of public health? Prof. David Lozada discusses the impact of infectious diseases on military operations during the Philippine American War.
