Poster for the exhibit: "Mapping the Territory: Maps from the Romanzo Adams Social Research Laboratory Collection

August 31, 2016-June 29, 2017
Location: Moir Reading Room

Mapping the Territory featured material from the Romanzo Adams Social Research Laboratory (RASRL) Collection. This Collection was named for Romanzo Adams who founded the Department of Sociology and studied race and race relations in the Territory from 1920 to 1942. These maps are community studies and illustrate streets, neighborhood, or towns. Other maps focus on specific social problems or issues. All the maps, in some way or another, deal with race and ethnic diversity, and all were meant to measure and document how local communities evolved during an important era of social change. The RASRL Collection is part of the University Archives. Co-curated by Lori Pearce, Associate Professor, DePaul University and Christine Kirk-Kuwaye, PhD, University of Hawaii
