Abstract: A history of leptospirosis research in Hawaii is presented, beginning with the first published work in 1937. This account traces the leading researchers who described the organism and the disease, the diagnostic tests developed and used, the reservoir animals identified, methods of disease transmission discovered, prevention programs developed in the state, and research into more effective disease detection and prevention.
