Robert F. Walden Collection

The Robert F. Walden Collection documents the wartime operations of the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard. The collection focuses on work done to salvage ships damaged in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, and throughout the course of the war, as well as the development of Civilian Housing Area III (CHAIII), where thousands of Yard workers lived.

The Walden Collection includes photographs, reports, war diaries, correspondence, speeches, clippings, personnel and administrative records, and Robert F. Walden biographical materials. Most of the materials were compiled at the end of the war and left with Walden by his friend H. L. Stickney, Jr. The materials were then donated to the University of Hawaii Library by Walden's widow, along with memorabilia saved by Walden and documentation concerning Walden's life and naval career.
