Arthur Goodfriend Papers

In his lifetime, Dr. Arthur Goodfriend (1907-1998) played many different roles: artist, author, soldier, journalist, diplomat, academic and educator. From the age of 21, he faithfully created illustrated, holographic journals which captured his experiences and recorded his thoughts.

Arthur Goodfriend was both an observer and participant in a significant number of critical periods in history. His journals contain first-hand accounting of these events and are accompanied by original illustrations. His was an incredible journey that spanned 90 years, with all of his personal "scraps" meticulously recorded in roughly 35 journals. These illustrated journals are a unique and invaluable record of the 20th century. Such conscientious and thorough documentation is extremely rare in this day and age, especially of such a remarkably interesting and reflective life.

All of Goodriend's journals, publications, papers, and supporting materials are housed in the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Library.
