This annotated bibliography on Filipinos in Hawaii is the sixth in the Hawaii Series, a research and publication program devoted to the tracing, compilation and evaluation of the existing literature on the various peoples and cultures in these islands. The Hawaii Series is a program of the University of Hawaii's Social Sciences and Linguistics Institute (SSLI). The Filipino bibliography project was initiated in 1971, with partial funding from the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. The following year the preliminary report on this project, "The Filipinos in Hawaii, an Annotated Bibliography, " was prepared. This report was largely a cooperative endeavor, with my self as project director. Nancy S. Alconcel, a professional librarian, set up a master file of entries that would possibly be relevant to the bibliography: Cesar S. Wycoco, a graduate assistant, located the materials and collected notes for the annotation. The preliminary report consisted mainly of publications in the libraries of the University of Hawaii. After the publication of the preliminary report in 1972, further work on this bibliography project was made possible largely by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation to the Department of American Studies of the University of Hawaii. Additional support came from the Japanese American Research Center. Two graduate assistants, Rochelle A. MacArthur and John Berger, helped locate entries in the various libraries on Oahu and collected notes for the annotations. This Filipino bibliography project, therefore, is largely the result of the work, support, and encouragement of all involved. Several others deserve our special gratitude for making this publication possible. David Kittleson, the curator of the Hawaiian and Pacific Collection at the University of Hawaii, helped locate the materials and brought new publications to our attention. Seymour Lutzky, chairman of the American Studies Department, provided encouragement and assistance throughout all the stages of the project. To them and to many others we express our gratitude. This annotated bibliography contains only the entries pertinent to the Hawaii Filipino experience. We did not include materials regarding Filipinos on the United States mainland, as several such bibliographies are available. We have listed only the materials that are readily accessible to researchers and scholars. We were successful in locating a number of unpublished manuscripts and conference papers, and we have annotated these only if we received the author's permission to deposit a copy in a library collection. We have not listed separately all the news items about Hawaii Filipinos that appeared in the two major newspapers on Oahu inasmuch as students and researchers can handily consult the Index to the Honolulu Advertiser and Star-Bulletin (1929-68, with annual updating).
