Ephemera

The ephemeral holdings related to the HWRD include a group of posters created by schoolchildren in the Territory of Hawaiʻi on various wartime campaigns such as war bonds and savings stamps, recycling, food, and nutrition. Two items come from the blackout experience in Hawaiʻi: a block warden’s helmet and a blackout light globe. Money printed for use in Hawaiʻi with the word “Hawaii” [sic] across the face; money printed by the Japanese for occupied Philippines; and money from Imperial Japan are other examples of ephemera in the HWRD.
