HONOLULU — Ferdinand Marcos and his family left behind handwritten diaries, spanning the years 1969-1984, when they fled the presidential palace in February 1986.

Since then, these papers have been in the custody of the Presidential Commission on Good Government.

Ambeth Ocampo is a professor at the Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City, Philippines. He is the Philippines’ top scholar on national hero José Rizal about whom he has written several books. He writes a column on Philippine history for the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
