Named Buildings-University of Hawaii at Manoa

This site created and hosted by the UHM Library contains brief biographical records and related images for each of the personalities honored by having a building or architectural feature named after them on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Created to contribute to the UH Centennial Celebration, some of the data is borrowed from Victor Kobayashi’s book BUILDING A RAINBOW, published by Hui O Students, UHM, in 1983.

Russians in Hawaii album

Also known as the “Russian Passport Album” – it is one of the rarest and unique items in the Russian Northeast Asia Collection. The digitized pages are presented as thumbnails accompanied by an image of the text transcribed in Russian and an abbreviated English translation. A JPEG version of each image page is provided as a larger, “zoomable” view. The annotations are a rough translation by Amir Khisamutdinov, and provide some ability to search the image collection in English by names and geographic locations.

Digital Image Collections abound at UH Manoa Library

Ranging from the earliest digitization project Trust Territory of the Pacific Photographs in 1992 to the recently completed Polish Posters (2018) the mission of the Digital Collections and Repository Program (D-CARP) is to build distinctive and unique collections that benefit the University, people of Hawai‘i, and the world.  Explore historical and cultural materials here:
