Clio Mathews Wetmore
Long Beach,, California
Biography:

Clio Mathews Wetmore was born in the Philippines March 29, 1912 in the village of Legaspi. Her par-ents and several relatives had emigrated from Greece in the early 1900s. When WWII came to the Philip-pines, she, her two brothers, and “Mum” were imprisoned at Santo Tomás along with nearly 4,000 other Europeans and Americans. For 37 months, these thousands slept in crowded rooms, most with no mat-tresses or bedding, and lived on rice with a thin, watery, vegetable “gravy.” Many did not survive this little-known WWII tragedy. Clio did, by luck, faith and determination. Hers is a truly inspiring story.
