From the back cover of Filipino Writers in English:
Florentino B. Valeros was professor of English and head, Department of English, University of the East. Earlier he served as head of the Department of English, American, Philippine literature, and educational research. At the NTC, he introduced the first 3-unit course in Philippine literature-- in the beginning as an elective (1946), but subsequently the Bureau of Private Schools with Dr. Jesus Perpiñan as director made it a required subject for B.S.E. students with major or minor in English. Also at the NTC, he introduced and taught Oriental Literature (in English translations).
