We at the PRLS mourns the passing of a Professor, author, and historian, Dr. Samuel K. Tan, one of the great scholars of Bangsamoro Studies. Dr. Tan was Born in Siasi, Sulu in 1933, authored more than 20 books, and has devoted his life in the study of the History of Sulu and the Philippine history thereby awarding him the Lifetime Achievement Award for History by The Philippine National Historical Society (PNHS).
Inna Lillahi Wa inna Ilaihi Raji’un. Dimagpak pa pangatayan namu in kasusahan, sabar iban kasila pa mga ahli iban kakampungan hi Dr. Tan.
Condolences to the bereaved family.
