Honolulu Record

In 1948, Koji Ariyoshi, a social activist, published a labor focused newspaper called the Honolulu Record. Founded to promote social change, Koji wanted to present another view on local and world issues, especially issues that affected the working class people of Hawaii. The Center for Labor understands the importance of this type of resource when researching historical events. Believing in multi-media approach, the Center hopes to re-tell the stories in a manner that brings them to life. With a gracious donation from the Arthur Rutledge Endowment and a grant from the Hawaii Council for the Humanities, the Center is able to provide the public with this digitization project.
The Honolulu Record was published nearly every Thursday from July 1st, 1948 to July 3rd, 1958 and was available for purchase at 10 cents an issue or a subscription cost of 5 dollars per year.
