Two important online resources for researching the history of Filipinos in Hawaii

With the help of the UH-M Library's Desktop Networking Services department, an important, unpublished manuscript has been digitized and mounted online as part of the library's Open Access Initiative. Ruben Alcantara's "Filipino History in Hawaii before 1946: The Sakada Years of Filipinos in Hawaii," which he'd previously donated to the Hawaiian Collection, can now be accessed online via Scholarspace, at the URL:
http://scholarspace.manoa.hawaii.edu/handle/10125/17651

The photograph illustrating his manuscript (which is also reproduced here) is from the Hawaiian Collection's other digitized collection on Filipinos in Hawaii, "Filipino Workers in Hawaii 1926" at http://digicoll.manoa.hawaii.edu/fil-labor/index.php
