Aftermath, 2012.

aftermath

The other day, i needed to go back to find an article that was not online and not even microfilmed. This is what i found afterwards—it’s generally what happens when handling the original Hawaiian-Language Newspapers… You find flakes of newspaper left behind. No matter how carefully they are handled, most of the newspapers are now brittle, and it will inevitably happen. The worst thing i’ve seen, however, are pieces left behind with a letter or two or them.

They should be rescanned soon, so that clear images of each page can be easily accessible. After the pages crumble away like this, it will be too late. Or, are you satisfied with just knowing what a portion of the articles said…

What organizations can facilitate and help to fund this important project?
