A documentary on former governor Paul Calvo has been completed by Rlene “Live” Productions.
Titled “TRIBUTE: Paul McDonald Calvo,” the show is a video documentary of Calvo’s political life and his dedication and commitment to CHamoru self-determination.
Oral historian Rlene Steffy, who produced the documentary, said the documentary was commissioned by the children of Paul McDonald Calvo and Calvo Enterprises Inc. for their admiration and gratitude to him for all that he has done for the family and the whole of Guam.
In one portion of the documentary, Steffy asked the former governor: “So, on Guam, what really determines who wins and who loses?”
Calvo answered: “I think it’s what you do, and how you are perceived in the community. And, when you’re in, what did you accomplish.”
Paul McDonald Calvo was born on July 25, 1934, the eldest of three sons of Eduardo Torres Calvo and Veronica Mariano McDonald. Calvo was the third elected governor of Guam and the second of five Republican governors in Guam’s political history.
According to Steffy, this is not the first time that Paul McDonald Calvo is recognized for his accomplishments, but this time he participates in telling the story.
Joining Calvo in the hour-long documentary, recalling the historical highlights of his administration are Joseph Franklin Ada, J. George Bamba, Thomas Victor Camacho Tanaka, Philip Joseph Flores, Joaquin Garrido Blaz, and Peter Felix Perez.
