On August 10, 1898, Lorenzo Martinez Tañada, the longest-serving senator in Philippine history, with 24 years of service, was born in Gumaca, Quezon.

Tañada, often called as the "grand old man of the Philippine politics", dedicated his life to the untiring struggle for nationalism, independence and sovereignty in the country.

Notably, he was at the forefront of several battles that shaped the history of the nation, including the fight against the dictatorship and the dismantling of Subic Naval Base in 1991, which was the last American military installation in the Philippines.

He earned his college diploma and law degrees from the University of the Philippines and proceeded with his masteral degree at Harvard University. He also got his doctorate for Civil Law from the University of Santo Tomas.

On his birthday in 1986, Tañada received the Philippine Legion of Honor, the country’s highest award, from President Corazon Aquino for opposing the presence of American troops in the country.

He died on August 9, 1992 at the age of 93.
