The University of Hawaii at Manoa and Hilo played vital roles in early Peace Corps volunteer training in the 1960s. Many returning volunteers reside in Hawaii and contribute to the islands in any ways. The exhibit includes historical film footage of President Kennedy and Sargent Shriver, archived photos including the Hilo Training Center, the Waipio Valley training village, personal photos and journals, Peace Corps memorabilia and artifacts provided by local Returned Peace Corps Volunteers. The exhibit is admission free and open to the public during UHM Hamilton Library building hours during the Spring 2011 semester.
