History and Establishment of the Post
Upon the liberation of Guam from Japanese occupation in 1944, the United States Naval Administration, then in-charge of government affairs of the island, turned to the Philippines for skilled manpower to help in the immediate rehabilitation and reconstruction of Guam. Filipino workers came in droves to perform all kinds of work. At one time, there were around 20,000 Filipino workers on the island.
Due to the large presence of Filipino workers on Guam, the Philippine Government felt the need to establish a field office that would oversee the affairs of these workers and attend to their needs. Initially, an honorary consulate was established and Mr. Eduardo Xauduro was appointed Honorary Consul in 1945. Mr. Xauduro served in that capacity until 1952 when the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs appointed Mr. Bartolome A. Umayam as the first career Consul and Principal Officer to Guam to supervise a permanent Consulate which was elevated to a Consulate General in 1964.
Following are the list of Consuls/Principal Officers and Consuls General who headed the Consulate since its establishment in 1952:
Hon. Patrick John U. Hilado
