Oral History and Archive Project (OHAP)


The Department's 75th anniversary inspired collection of oral historical and archival materials on the department's history. This involved gathering stories as well as visual and written materials about Anthropology at UH Manoa from faculty, students and friends of the department past and present. Much of the material is available in a digital archive of the Anthropology department in coordination with the Graduate Library and Reading room as well as Hamilton library and Scholar Space.

Please click here for the OHAP page or contact the Department Chair <anthchr@hawaii.edu> for more information.
