Colonel Romulo with his boyhood hero President Manuel L. Quezon. Based on Romulo’s autobiography and other sources, this photo was probably taken in Quezon’s room at the Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC, on January 1, 1943, when Quezon gave him the cabinet position of Secretary of Information and Public Relations. The following year President Osmeña gave him an additional job as the Philippines’ Resident Commissioner to the US Congress, a position he served until 1946.
