The Thomas P. Gill Papers

About The Papers

Tom Gill Button

Thomas P. Gill donated 86 record center boxes of material to the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library in May 2001. The bulk of the papers cover Gill’s two years in Congress and four years in the Hawaii Lt. Governor’s office. The collection is rich in material documenting his enthusiastic political life and his concerns about nuclear power; the environment; land development, especially on the Big Island; social and economic justice; and the high cost of living in Hawaii. There is a smaller amount of material from his pre- and post-Congressional life.

The papers are arranged in five series:

--Political Offices (held by Gill), 1955-1970

--Politics (Democratic Party, Hawaii and National), 1952-1972

--Personal (election campaigns and biographical material), 1939-2001

--Memorabilia (mostly election campaigns), 1940-2005; bulk 1958-1980

--Audiovisual (audiotapes, films, photographs; primarily election campaigns and Big Island development), 1958-1974

The papers were arranged and described from July 2005 through March 2006 and are available to researchers by appointment (808/944-7656). Please consult the Finding Aid (PDF) for a timeline, series descriptions, and specific topics covered in the collection.
