Kenneth Kingrey, a much respected educator and award-winning artist and graphic designer, was a professor of art at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. This exhibit comprises a selection of his photographs taken in the 1950s in cities throughout Europe, including Rome, Venice, Zurich, Milan, and Paris. The photographs are part of the Hawaii Artists and Architects Collection at the University of Hawaii at Manoa's Hamilton Library. The exhibit was curated by Jack Kormos, University Archives and Manuscripts Department, Hamilton Library.
During the 1960s through the early 1970s, the University of Hawai'i administered a training center for the Peace Corps and sent thousands of volunteers to Asian and Pacific countries. Hawai'i's strategic, as well as isolated, location in the middle of the Pacific, the diversity of Asian and Pacific cultures and languages represented, and the varied topography provided a logical location to prepare Americans for life abroad.
This exhibit highlights the history of the Peace Corps training in Hawai'i, with photos and other materials from the UH Peace Corps Training Center Records. The collection is housed in the University Archives & Manuscripts Department of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Library.
