  1. Mary, This is Collis Davis. You may remember me from many years ago, perhaps when I was still living in the States (Columbus, OH) or between Fulbrights (1995-96 and 2000-2001) I just read your article on Walter Loving. Excellent work! I came across it while attempting to locate any recordings of the Phil Constabulary Band. I did find one recording of his composition,”My Beloved Philippines” at the Filipinas Library which I can easily get. What may be more difficult is locating older recordngs of the PC band playing marching fare, even an American anthem, etc. Have any clue about whether such recordings exist? Such material may be used support a segment on William Jones, the anthropologist, in my documentary, Headhunting William Jones. Your discussion about Sousa’s repugnance to Ragtime is hilarious. Good stuff! I thought Loving’s asawa was white, but apparently an African-American of light complexion like many in my family. I think I read in a biography of Loving by his son or a grandchild (I’m not sure) that Ge.n Yamashita personally beheaded Loving at the entrance to the Manila Hotel when Loving told Yamashita to “go to hell” or something to that effect. So, Yamashita unsheathed his samurai sword to severed Loving’s head.

    Paul Kramer, whom you cited, is one of my interview subjects.
