UHM Hawaii Peace Corps Banners on display at the Library of Congress in DC
Earlier this month, Hamilton Library arranged for the Hawaii Peace Corps Banner collection to be sent to the Library of Congress in Washington DC for display during the Daniel K. Inouye Distinguished Lecture Series on May 18, 2017. This year’s lecture “Inspiring a Sense of Service and Idealism” focused on public service and civic engagement, for which the Peace Corps work in Hawaii perfectly exemplifies. The event was streamed live at the Richardson School of Law. A thank-you note from Daniel K. Inouye Institute expressed “They made quite a statement as people entered the auditorium, and provided the perfect context and backdrop for our discussion.”

The Hawaii Peace Corps Banner loan was made possible with the work of Myra Waddell, Chair of the Library Exhibits Committee, Jennifer Sabas and Sara Hamakawa from Daniel K. Inouye Institute and Hawaii Community Foundation, and Asako Shiba, Archivist for University Records.
