The ‘Iolani School Archives collects, organizes, preserves and provides access to historical records of ‘Iolani School.
These documents, memorabilia, and other materials promote an understanding of and appreciation for the history of the school and the individuals who laid its foundations and nurtured its development.
The materials are available for use by faculty, staff, students, alumni, and other interested researchers.
The 'Iolani School Archives contains materials, information, videos, images, etc., that may be considered sensitive or offensive according to today's standards. These items are indicative of societal attitudes at particular points in time. Such materials are retained and preserved in an effort to adequately represent the historical record.
In addition to acquiring and caring for historical records – which were created or used by the school or people associated with it – some of our activities include helping with requests for information, assisting visiting researchers, and arranging displays.
The archives has a wealth of material on the history of the school. If you have a class project and think you may need to use archival materials, please contact the archives staff to determine if the archives has resources to meet your needs.
Archives are "the non-current records of individuals, groups, institutions, and governments that contain information of enduring value."
