Was A Citrus Named After Senator Juan Gaerlan?
During the American colonial period, the U.S. government hired Americans to staff critical positions in various government departments or bureaus in the Philippines.

Lyon, from the Bureau of Agriculture, where he didn’t waste time building his own “garden” of various trees and plants.
