HSPA (Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association) Plantation Archives
A unique collection of records from plantations on the Hawaiian islands of Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Maui and Hawaiʻi island. It is a rich resource, providing detailed insight into plantation life and the sugar industry in Hawaiʻi, spanning the years of 1850 to 1991. Researchers in the fields of history, business, agriculture, sociology, literature and many others, using the HSPA Plantation Archives for a wide variety of projects, have made this the most heavily used of the UHM Library Hawaiian Collection's manuscript and archive collections.
Archives of the Hawaiian Pineapple Company/Dole Corporation.
Records in the archives span the years 1901-1988, years when
pineapple as a signature product of Hawaii, touched the
lives of many individuals who worked in the fields and the
canneries. Also included are records of Dole Corporation's
international activities and relations with other Hawaiʻi
companies and organizations.
