Governor General William Cameron Forbes was a great polo aficionado and it was during his term that the club was established. The original clubhouse was burned during World War II. In the 1950s a new clubhouse was built at Forbes Park in Makati where it currently stands.

In gathering information in this field, the considerations are: the different host coins for each country involved, the different types of pearl formation for each crown as well as the multitude of host years, mints and assayers for each host nation, archival mintages of each type, identification of the contemporary or modern counterfeits, specimen with chopmarks, holes and so on.

Although the dream plan was not fully implemented, some buildings for the proposed government center were constructed, including the Old Legislative Building (now National Museum of Fine Arts), and Finance Building (presently National Museum of Anthropology and Natural History).

The book generally explores the cultural role of religion, the relationship of Christianity and local cultures, and the specific development and history of institutions that have been fostered by evangelization.

The OFI Library  is a Philippine study center with a collection of nearly 21,000 books, serials, images, and documents relating to Philippine history with some dating back to the 17th century.
The OFI Library produced mobile photo exhibits of Filipiniana imagery of various themes which are brought to different schools, universities, local museums, churches and other public venues in Manila as well as the provinces. Interested parties may request for these exhibits. Other exhibits featuring original library materials from the collections are held within the foundation premises.
The foundation also hosts conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and other interdisciplinary events. The seminar and conference rooms provide the venue for our educational and cultural programs. These rooms are also available for rent for cultural, socio-civic, as well as corporate activities.
