Interns, under the guide of the archivist, will take an extensive inventory of the C.M. Cooke Papers collection. The inventory will be used throughout the course of processing the collection, and it will be published online along with the finding aid at the end of processing. After the inventory is created, interns will digitize the material. Each item will be scanned and added to Omeka.
Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives holds over 3,000 pieces of material culture and more than 12,000 books, manuscripts, original letters, diaries, journals, illustrations and church records relating to 19th century life of missionaries in Hawaii. Currently we are looking for help processing the C.M. Cooke Papers (1860-1909) which focuses on life of the Provisional Government advisory council member, Charles Montague Cooke (b. 1849 – d. 1909).
