Book offers history of Silliman Masscom
A COFFEE table book, “Grassroots Journalism: Early History of the Silliman College of Mass Communication,” was launched on August 25 in Silliman University, Dumaguete City on the occasion of the golden jubilee of the first journalism school outside Metro Manila.
The 32nd book authored and edited by Dr. Crispin C. Maslog, first permanent director of the College of Mass Communication, and published by Silliman University, documents the history of the college founded in 1967. Dr. Maslog is now chair of the board, Asian Media Information Centre (AMIC), a regional organization of media institutions.
The foreword is written by Dr. Florangel R. Braid, president emeritus of Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication. The 261-page book in glossy paper is hard bound and contains hundreds of rare photos from the early years of the school.
All proceeds from the sale of the book would be donated to a trust fund for scholarships for Silliman Mass Communication students and for faculty research and professorial lectures.
The book sells for P1,200. For inquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
