Liljestrand Foundation is pleased to present
Hawaii From 1945 to 1970: Architecturally and Otherwise

Join us at the Liljestrand House with historian DeSoto Brown as he shares treasures from his personal archive detailing Hawaii’s mid-twentieth century architectural history. 


DeSoto Brown is the Bishop Museum Historian and Curator of the Archives. He’s been employed there for nearly 34 years, and has participated in exhibits and public programs in addition to archival work. He has written a variety of books and articles on different aspects of Hawaiian history of the twentieth century. In addition, he has amassed a very large collection of Hawaiian-themed paper ephemera over the last 50 years, mostly connected to tourism and advertising promotion.

Thank you for opening this beautiful home and keeping the legacy and details alive.
