Repository Spotlight: ‘Iolani School Archives

Thanks to the hard work of Barbara Dunn, Janel Quirante and Mary Louise Haraguchi, the 5th Edition of the Directory of Historical Records Repositories in Hawai‘i was released earlier this year.  Included are 48 repositories, each special in its own unique way.  A couple of the board members thought it would be fun to feature a repository each month and learn more about the wonderful collections to be found.

This month, let’s peek into the ‘Iolani School Archives.

The ‘Iolani School Archives is located on the second floor of the Sullivan Center for Innovation and Leadership, next to the upper school library.  Their collection includes school publications (the student newspaper, the annual yearbook, and the alumni magazine), photographs, video recordings, books, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings slides, oral histories and artifacts – treasures sharing the 151-year history of the school.    Holdings also include special collections on Sun Yat-sen, Father Kenneth A. Bray, and Harold Keables.

Archivist Rosemarie Panko has served as the lone arranger here for over a decade and will retire this summer.  The archive is open Monday – Friday, 12:30 – 4pm if you’d like to pop in and wish her well!
