Ramon F. Magsaysay
Third President of the 3rd Republic
Dec. 30, 1953 - March 17, 1957
Born: Aug. 31, 1907 in Iba, Zambales
Died: March 17, 1957
First Lady: Luz Banson
Parents: Exequiel Magsaysay and Perfecta del Fiero
Education: B. S. Commerce, Jose Rizal College
Miscellaneous: Inarguably, the most well-loved Philippine president in history so far. As Defense Secretary under
Pres. Elpidio Quirino, he was very effective in suppressing the Huk insurrection; it catapulted him to the
presidency in 1953. Decidedly a strong sympathizer of America, he was also helped greatly
by the USA. He died, with most of his cabinet members, in a plane crash in Mt. Manunggal, Cebu.
