Did you know: Felipe Calderon

Thursday, April 4, is the 145th birth anniversary of the late statesman Felipe Calderon, the author of the Malolos Constitution. Born in 1868, as a student of the then Ateneo de Municipal, Calderon was said to have had to walk to school barefooted because he was saving the only pair of slippers he had from being worn out. He graduated with honors and then pursued law. He died in Manila on July 6, 1908. Schatzi Quodala, Inquirer Research
