Sons, Daughters and Labor Supply in Early Twentieth-Century Hawai'i

April 10, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Sakamaki Hall A201, UH Manoa History Department Library Add to Calendar

Prof Sumner J La Croix (Economics, UH Manoa) will explore how immigration to Hawai'i between 1864 and 1928 transformed its ethnic structure, population and work force. Could women negotiate better marriage terms? Could they allocate more household resources to daughters? Dr Sumner will use the four Territorial censuses between 1900 and 1930 to consider these important issues.
