The Sen. Spark M. Matsunaga Papers

About the Papers

Spark Matsunaga Button

The Sen. Spark M. Matsunaga Papers form a cornerstone of the Hawaii Congressional Papers Collection--a major part of Hawaii's documentary heritage--at the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library.

In 1997 Sen. Matsunaga's widow donated his papers to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. There were approximately 1200 boxes of material including documents, photographs, videos, and memorabilia from his 28 years in Congress. Also in the papers are professional and personal materials from his pre-Congressional life; especially noteworthy are documents, letters, photographs, and memorabilia from his Army service in the 100th Infantry Battalion.

Approximately 3000 books, journals, published reports, and state and federal government documents accompanied his papers. A few were kept with the papers and others were added to the library collections of UH Manoa, other UH campuses, or academic institutions in the Pacific region.

The Papers have been processed and are open for research. Please consult the Finding Aid (PDF) for a timeline, series descriptions, and topics covered in the collection.
