Had forgotten about that article. It gives the name of the two women who tutored him, who I was told were missionaries,,,,One certainly wasn’t
Both women were part of the LAUBACH literacy movement.
LAUBACH appears on the kenynan's immigration documents.
Laubach had a deep interest in the Philippines. He wrote a biography of the Filipino national hero, Jose Rizal: Man and Martyr, published in Manila in 1936. He also translated the hero's valedictory poem, "Mi Ultimo Adios" (My Last Farewell.) His version is ranked second in ideas, content, rhyme and style among the 35 English translations in a collection.
He was considered[who?] a pioneer mover of Maranao literature. He wrote:
"The Moros of Lake Lanao have amazingly rich literature, all the more amazing since it exists only in the memories of the people and had just begun to be recorded in writing. It consists of lyric and poetry with the epic greatly predominating."
THE MOROS ARE MUSLIM.
