Dorothy Cordova Dorothy Cordova, 89, is the single most important person in preserving the region’s Filipino American History. At a small office in a vacant school building in Seattle’s Central District, she has collated decades worth of material and started a national historical society, with 36 chapters across the country. ((The Filipino American National Historical Society/FANHS is now 39 years old.)) She went to school in Seattle with the late community leader Bob Santos, and said she took on this project because, “The term we use is ‘forgotten Asian Americans,’ which we are. There was very little written about us."
