The Douglas Oliver Collection WELCOME TO THE DOUGLAS OLIVER COLLECTION. Douglas Oliver (Feb. 10, 1913 - October 30, 2009) completed a B.A. at Harvard in 1934 and and a DPhil in Ethnology at the University of Vienna in 1935. Between 1936 and 1941, he was a research associate on the staff of Harvard's Peabody Museum of Ethnology and Archaeology. Between 1938 and 1939, Oliver conducted research on Bougainville, among the Siwai (a.k.a. Siuai) people. The majority of these images derive from that period, and were donated to the Pacific Collection following Dr. Oliver's death in 2009.

Dakin Fire Insurance Maps WELCOME TO DAKIN FIRE INSURANCE MAPS. Welcome to Digitized Dakin Fire Insurance Maps The production of fire insurance plans of North American cities was dominated by two companies, the Sanborn Map Company of New York and the Charles E. Goad Company of London. The stories of other publishers, for the most part, have not been adequately told. The West, includ[ing] Hawaii, had a number of individuals and institutions which produced insurance plans. One of the more successful of them was the Dakin Publishing Company of San Francisco. Dakin was in existence from about 1885 until the early 1960's, and actively produced insurance maps from its beginning until the second decade of the 20th Century. * * Hoehn, R.
Within the vast body of literature on Asia held by the Asia Collection at the University of Hawaii are fascinating illustrations of the people of Asia and the environment in which they live. These images are a visual record of the lives of the people and their surroundings. The sheer number of illustrations makes digitizing all of them an impossible task, so we have decided to concentrate on the theme "Asia at Work." Work is the activity by which so many of us identify ourselves. The tools we use, the human interaction and cooperation that occurs in the course of its performance, and the skills we employ all, to a great extent, help define who we are. Images are arranged by country.
