Hawaii’s Historical English-Language Newspapers Exhibit, 2012.

Hawaii Digital Newspaper Project

Check out the new exhibit at Hamilton Library on the 5th floor in the Hawaiian/Pacific Collections, of articles from Hawaii’s historical English-Language Newspapers. It sounds fun and informative. I will be headed over to check it out soon!

[Maybe there should be one done of the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers as well!]

Death notice, 1912.

[Found under: “Local News”]

This past Tuesday [1/30/1912], Waihokaea Waiwaiole (f) expired, at 51 years of age, at Manamana. She is a blood relative of Captain Duke Kahanamoku.

[Notice that in the previous Vital Statistics column, it gives “Waihoikaea” passing away on Aloe Lane, January 30. Here, the name given is “Waihokaea Waiwaiole.” To get all possible information, it is important to look at all the different newspapers available, because you never know what additional information will be given. Name variations like the one here are also tricky…]

More drought on Maui, 1912.

[Found under: “Local News”]

According to the news from Hana, Maui, this is one of those years that great drought is seen there, and being that there are no rivers flowing down from the mountains to bring satiating water, the people there are facing serious trouble.
