For Immediate Release

The Heritage Center at the University of Hawai╩╗i at Hilo North Hawai╩╗i Education and Research Center (NHERC) presents a public lecture by Dr. Peter Mills and anthropology student Nicole Garcia titled ÔÇťAn Intimate Look at 19th Century Life in North Hawai╩╗iÔÇŁ on Thursday, March 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the NHERC Conference Room in Honoka`a.

The presentation will focus on the research done by Mills and Garcia on early store ledgers from Waimea and Honoka`a dating from the 1860s through the 1880s. Mills has been looking at ledgers from the Humu`ula Sheep Station store, while Garcia has been working in the Heritage Center archives on ledgers from Holmes Store (now the North Hawai╩╗i Community Federal Credit Union). What people were purchasing during this time period reflects the changing patterns in domestic life and material goods in North Hawai╩╗i.
