Background
In September 1945, the Office of War Information was transferred to the State Department. Operating under the name of the United States Information Service (USIS), the function of the Philippine branch became that of furnishing information about America and American policy to the Filipino people, with the aim of creating among them a better understanding of America’s foreign policy. USIS employed the media of news, libraries, moving pictures, radio, and the exchange of persons between the two countries, with the mission of explaining U.S. policies, ideals, and society in terms meaningful to Filipinos and in such a way as to create better feelings and more understanding between the two nations.
