This chapter introduces the concept of progressivist imperialism through the figure of Frank Murphy, the mayor of Detroit during the Great Depression and then the last American governor-general of the Philippines, who transposed his earlier work on the New Deal into the Philippine colonial context. This chapter focuses on his and his sister Marguerite Murphy Teahan’s accumulation of Philippine souvenirs and tribute collected in the family’s house-turned-museum, and it also examines Filipino responses to American progressivist colonial governance.
