The Hawaiʻi War Records Depository (HWRD) is an extensive collection of archival materials that document life in Hawaiʻi during World War II. In April of 1943, during its first session after the United States' entrance into World War II, the Hawaiʻi Territorial Legislature passed a joint resolution designating the University of Hawaiʻi as the official depository of material related to Hawaiʻi's part in the war. Over a five year period, individuals, organizations and agencies throughout the state donated or loaned correspondence, personal accounts, reports, photographs, scrapbooks, phonograph discs, maps, posters, artwork, pamphlets, newspapers, clippings, memorabilia and other materials.
