No Aloha for Our Ohana: The History of U.S. Army Chemical Weapons on Oahu

November 19, 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Virtual

Please join Professor Russell Hart (HPU) for a discussion of the history of U.S. Army chemical weapons on Oahu. That history begins during the interwar period, when the U.S. Government intended to use such dangerous weapons against a potential Japanese invasion across the Pacific, and the history continues after the war to include issues of health, the environment and relations between civilians and the military. What can this story tell us about U.S. strategic and military interests, as well as the history of relations between the U.S. military and the citizens of Hawaii? The talk is free and open to the public on Zoom. Please contact Professor Hoffenberg at peterh@hawaii.edu for the Zoom information.
