Wednesday, August 15, 2018

PHILIPPINE DAILY INQUIRER (PHILIPPINES) -- Dawn Bohulano Mabalon, a tenured professor and scholar at San Francisco State University, who wrote passionately for the inclusion of the Filipino story in American History, and fought for the preservation of her hometown community’s soul as a co-founder of the Stockton’s Little Manila Foundation, died on Friday.

“This is a great loss for all of us, as she gave the world to her family, friends, and our community,” said Allyson Tintangco-Cubales, a close colleague and fellow professor at San Francisco State University, in a Facebook post.

Mabalon did give her readers, a vivid and comprehensive representation of post-colonial Filipino life in the U.S. in her book, Little Manila is in the Heart: The Making of the Filipina/o American Community in Stockton, California.
