Center for Oral History

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa's Center for Oral History has conducted dozens of oral history projects, focusing on Hawaiʻi's ethnic groups, industries and historical events.

Transcripts of the interviews are available to the public via the Center for Oral History's community in the UHM institutional repository ScholarSpace. If you prefer hard copy of the transcripts, they are available at UH System libraries, and the Hawaiʻi State Public Library System.
