FINAL COMMENTS: From what little I could glean from the internet, Bayanihan was a company based in Massachusetts and founded in 1974 by W. Thomas Burns (deceased) who had worked for the Peace Corps in the Philippines. His retro modern designs found favor with many a customer due to their flawless execution and design. "Bayanihan" is a word which means "spirit of communal unity/working together."
