A Time Capsule of Ke Kalahea
Photo story by Alexi Jimeno
Ke Kalahea has been spreading UH Hilo news to the students and faculty for decades. The earliest copies of these issues our team has found, date all the way back to 1974. Throughout the decades, our newspaper has taken on the names “Ka Leo,” “Vulcan News,” as well as “uh hilo news.” No matter the name, each issue has covered different campus events, important local news, the student voice/perspective, etc. It’s not much different to what Ke Kalahea covers now. However, we release monthly issues while in the past they released weekly issues. It’s quite interesting to note the difference or similarities between the photos, layout choices, graphic designs, and writing styles from back then compared to now. Take a look at the past versions of Ke Kalahea!
