Abstract: This inventory is one of the results of Phase I of the Hawaii Newspaper Project. The list was produced using the University of Hawaii Computer Center SCRIPT program. Funding for computer time was granted by the University of Hawaii Library. In compiling this list we have attempted to include all known newspaper titles published in Hawaii since 1834, and to indicate locations of surviving files. For this preliminary inventory, we have included only the location of the one most complete file. Our work notes have more complete holding information which could be included in future print-outs of our computerized list. When we examined many titles, we found that they are not true "newspapers" according to national standards. To avoid having to repeat this evaluation, we have retained many of these titles in this preliminary inventory with the note "exclude". Some of our notes in this preliminary edition are informal and internal in nature. We will standardize information in future print-outs.
Information about the plantation papers is sketchy since we were not able to physically examine these papers.
Description: Please treat this list as a working tool and make additions and corrections to your copies as necessary. We will include these corrections in future print-outs.
At the end of the inventory appears a list of the newspaper titles arranged chronologically by decade. The order of information about titles is as follows: title, dates of publication history when known, imprint, frequency (abbreviated), and location of best file.
Codes for holding institutions are as follows:
AH = Archives of Hawaii;
BM = Bishop Museum;
HHS = Hawaiian Historical Society;
HMCS = Hawaiian Mission Children's Society;
HSL = Hawaii State Library;
HSPA = Hawaii Sugar Planters Association;
KCC = Kauai Community College;
KRL = Kauai Regional Library;
MCC = Maui Community College;
MRL = Maui Regional Library;
UH = University of Hawaii at Manoa;
UHH = University of Hawaii at Hilo
Sponsorship: Funded by the National Newspaper Program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Many people contributed to the project, and we thank them for their assistance. We especially acknowledge the work of Agnes Conrad, whose work sheets formed the core of this inventory.
