NORA CRUZ QUEBRAL: WRITER AND THINKER PAR EXCELLENCE
Writing about Dr. Nora Cruz-Quebral, writer par excellence and pioneer of development communication in Asia, is one big hurdle as the prospect of your article not earning her smile of approval looms as a possibility. She would not have graduated with a BA in English magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines in1950 without basis. Writing has always been one of her forte, alongside her ability for sharp, critical analysis and conceptual thinking. It was this foresight and her sharp analysis of developments during her time that made her pioneer the development communication academic programs at the University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) in the early to mid-70s.
