Dicaeum trigonostigma isidroi Rand & Rabor, 1969 OD here.

This new race is named in honor of Dr. Antonio Isidro, president of Mindanao State University, and in appreciation of his great interest in biological research.

The Eponym Dictionary of Birds claims

Dr Antonio Isidro y Santos (1901–at least 1969) was a Filipino biologist and educator. The University of Chicago awarded his doctorate. He was the founder and first President of Mindanao State University (1961), having been Vice President for Academic Affairs in the University of the Philippines. He wrote many papers and longer works on education.

The old key had him as:

Dr Antonio Isidro y Santos (b. 1901) Filipino biologist, first President of Mindanao State University (subsp. Dicaeum trigonostigma).

Maybe here it is possible to solve when he died?
