On November 15, 1950, Mindoro was divided into two provinces: Oriental Mindoro and OCCIDENTAL MINDORO.
San Jose was made the provincial capital of the latter until January 1, 1961, when the seat of government was transferred to Mamburao.
From the original number of eight towns, Occidental Mindoro is now composed of eleven municipalities.
