This site is dedicated to preserving the memory of my grandfather Dr. Jaime Laico, a "pioneering Filipino scientist" and the surgeon who introduced plastic surgery to the Philippines.  The articles come from the fragile yellow newsclippings from his own scrapbook.  By scanning the images and publishing the articles in hypertext, I hope to free them from the physical limitations of paper and preserve them for the "postliterate" age -- Andrew, September 1, 1996
