Abstract: While historical events that took place in the Territory of Hawaiʻi during World War II have been well-documented, little information is available about the disposition of millions of tons of surplus equipment and supplies that had been stockpiled in the Territory. Drawing on news articles, archival sources, and government documents, this study examines two aspects of disposal of surplus military property in the Territory of Hawaiʻi: the people who worked in surplus disposal, and the impact of this bonanza of surplus on people’s lives and the local economy.
