The Philippines were declared a Commonwealth in 1935, and the governing of the island nation was largely turned over to the Philippine people. The office of the U. S. High Commissioner was established to represent American interests in the Philippines until well after Philippine independence was declared in 1946, although the functions of this office were transferred to the Department of the Interior in 1942. The annual reports began with a volume covering 1935 and 1936 together. For some years, the Annual Reports of the President of the Philippines also appeared in the U. S. Congressional Serial Set alongside the reports from the U. S. High Commissioner. (Andriot 785, NARA web site)
