“Our first home was a two-story brick house on Wisconsin Avenue,” wrote Anita Magsaysay-Ho in An Artist’s Memoirs, her spare, elegant autobiography. Newly married, she and her husband Roberto moved from San Francisco to Washington in 1948 and lived a quiet life. In her memoirs there are stories about spending time with friends who worked at the Philippine Embassy and entertaining visitors, among them, her cousin and future Philippine president, Ramon Magsaysay, then a young congressman. “I was so happy I could prepare Filipino dishes for him,” she recalled. Some years later, her first daughter Helen was born at the Georgetown University Hospital and baptized at St. Ann’s Cathedral near their home.
