Subject Index

About this collection

The Hawaii State Archives Subject Index provides subject access to records and letterbooks of the Hawaii Interior Department and Foreign Office and Executive, some private collections, library books, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers and periodicals. It is the most complete for the Interior Department and the Foreign Office and Executive records. Newspapers (1836-1950) include the Advertiser, Star Bulletin, Polynesian, Hawaiian Gazette, and the Friend, but none of them are completely indexed.

The index entries refer to records in the Hawaii State Archives. To see the records, visit Hawaii State Archives at 364 S. King Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813 during business hours. If you are unable to visit the Archives but would like copies of records referenced by this index, email the Archives at or call 808-586-0329.
