Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Encarnacion A. Alzona (March 23, 1895 - March 13, 2001) was a pioneering Filipino historian, educator and suffragette. The first Filipino woman to obtain a Ph.D, she was conferred in 1985 the rank and title of National Scientist of the Philippines. Alzona was born in Bi an, Laguna and grew up in Tayabas. Her father was a trial court judge and a distant relative of Jose Rizal. Both her parents were voracious readers, a circumstance that fostered her academic inclinations. She obtained a degree in history from the University of the Philippines in 1917, and a master's degree the following year from the same university. Her thesis was a historical survey on the school education of women in the Philippines, a theme that proved apt in light of her later activism as a suffragette.
