William Henry Scott (historian)


William Henry Scott (historian)

William Henry Scott (1921–1993) was an anthropologist and leading historian on the Cordilleras and prehispanic Philippines.

He is perhaps best known for debunking the Kalantiaw legend in 1968, in his book "Prehispanic Source Materials for the Study of Philippine History". Datu Kalantiaw was the main character in a historical novel written in 1913 by Jose E. Marco. Through a series of faulty citations, the invented legend was mistakenly thought to be actual history. As a result of Scott's work, Kalantiaw is no longer a part of the standard history texts in the Philippines. [ [http://www.mts.net/~pmorrow/kalant_e.htm Kalantiaw, the Hoax ] ]

In 1994, the Ateneo de Manila posthumously gave Scott the Tanglaw ng Lahi Award for a lifetime "spent in teaching not only in the classroom, but also the outside world by means of the broad reaches of his contacts and communication, and most of all through his hundreds of published scholarly articles and inspirationals which continue to disseminate and teach honest Philippine history to succeeding generations of Filipinos."cn|date=August 2008

Scott's book Prehispanic Source Materials for the Study of Philippine History was first published by the University of Santo Tomas Press, after first being presented as a dissertation on the prehispanic Philippines in 1968. A revised and expanded second edition was published in 1984.
