As the United States began to cede control over the vast cultural area known as Micronesia, there was great concern over what would become of the vast archival materials produced during the post-World War II period by a variety of governmental agencies. In the early 1980s, Sam McPhetres, in collaboration with the University of Hawaii Library, began to document and microfilm these governmental files, with the hope that many of these materials will be made publicly available to researchers and other interested parties. While many of the government documents themselves have yet to materialize on this site, visitors will find hundreds of archival photographs here for their consideration. These images cover such topics as school graduations, gatherings of chiefs, agricultural projects, and the Micronesian Olympics. For convenience, visitors can browse the photographs by reel or through searching the photograph description files.
