On page 388, this line in paragraph 2: “SAMAR, NORTHERN . The smallest of the three Samar provinces, Northern Samar was created on 9 June 1995 by virtue of Republic Act 4221.” is quite misleading. While Northern Samar was indeed created through Republic Act 4221, authored by then Congressman Eladio T. Balite, reliable and verifiable records show that said act was approved on June 19, 1965, on which date the division of Samar into three provinces came into effect. In fact, the Province of Northern Samar is preparing for her 50th Founding Anniversary Celebrations on June 19, 2015.
