The illustrated talk by researcher and author Don Hibbard is scheduled for Thursday, June 12, at 5:30 p.m., in the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s School of Architecture, Room 214.

“Hawai‘i Civic” showcases civic architecture which emerged in Hawai‘i at the turn of the 20th century through 1940, also known as the Territorial Period. Dr. Hibbard’s architectural history tells the story of civic design in the turbulent era through text and photos. Historic architect Tonia Moy is the project manager, with Viki Nasu overseeing design and production and Hawkins Biggins providing breathtaking photographs.
