Photography: War

Photography of Hawaii During the War

Welcome to our collection of photography of Hawaii during the war. The greatest effect of war is less in altering national boundaries than in effecting fundamental and lasting changes in society. The Second World War changed the economic and political landscape of Hawai’i from one dominated by a white Republican sugar-baron oligarchy and the Big Five missionary firms to one dominated by local folks.
