Summary
Commemorative album of photographs of village scenes, and views of the countryside and native peoples of Northern Luzon in the Philippines, dated August 1910.
Biographical or historical data
Dean C. Worcester was born in Thetford, Vermont on Oct. 1, 1866, and received his degree from the University of Michigan in 1889. Worcester was first introduced to the Philippines in 1887 while exploring the islands with a group of students from the University, under the direction of Professor Joseph B. Steere. After graduation, he returned to the Philippines under the sponsorship of the Minnesota Academy of Natural Science, and spent the next three years studying and traveling through the islands, becoming an expert on Philippine affairs. When the United States took control of the Philippines in 1899, President McKinley, recognizing Worcester's expertise, appointed him to the first Philippine Commission, and renewed his appointment to the second Commission as well. Worcester also served as Secretary of the Interior for the Insular Government (1901-1913), and Superintendent of Public Instruction. Worcester was the author of numerous articles on Philippine culture, including two articles for National Geographic (vol. 23, no. 9 (September 1912); and vol. 24, no. 11 (November 1913), and was a sensitive and highly skilled photographer.

Summary expansion
The album was presented by Cameron Forbes, Governor General of the Philippines, to Isabel and Larz Anderson, who were accompanying U.S. Secretary of War J.M. Dickinson on a four-month long world tour, which included a six-week visit to the Philippines. In one photo, Larz Anderson poses with a group of young Philipino girls. Photographs were taken by Dean C. Worcester, Secretary of the Interior of the Insular Government, authority on the Philippines, and zoologist. Worcester's photos may have been part of those he prepared for his National Geographic articles of 1912 and 1913. There are portraits, many full-page, of Philippine native peoples, including Muslims, known as Moros, Kalingas, Bontoc Igorots, Ifugaos, and Benguet-Lepanto Igorots, both men and women, showing their costumes and adornments, pottery and weapons, dancing and daily activities. The intricate tattoo marks of the Bontoc Igorots are shown in several photographs, made visible by a special treatment of the negatives. In addition to village scenes, there are views of the countryside, terraced rice fields, mountains and streams, and flowering plants. One very large photo portrays the officers connected with the Mountain Province, 11 of 12 of them identified. Also included are two large stock photos from the Camera Supply Company of Manila, one identified as the "Zig zag on the Benguet Road," the other, a large elegant hilltop house, is unidentified
