Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum’s Government and Governance Digital Initiative, 2012.

I was at a presentation tonight by DeSoto Brown of the Bishop Museum on some of their treasures held in the Museum’s archives. Of particular interest to you all might be the number of new material that is available online and is word searchable!

Here is the search page for their Government and Governance: A Digital Initiative page.

One of the great many topics of interest is Leprosy.
