In 2018, the Environmental Center Project (ECP) was established to preserve the unique and crucial documents accumulated by the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Environmental Center (EC) since its inception in 1970. Through hard work and a logistically challenging process, the ECP—lead by Kieko Matteson, Associate Professor of Environmental and French History in the UH History Department; Dr. Sara Bolduc, an urban planner; and their four student assistants—have made substantial progress in this massive undertaking. While much more work needs to be done, at least a third of the 1,400 historically significant hardcopies have been preserved, converted, and uploaded on the web to enable present and future generations free access to the information.
