Hawaii Times

Hawaii Times / 布哇タイムス, (Honolulu, HI)

Hawaii Times Masthead

The Nippu Jiji continued to publish under US government censorship during WWII after having been temporarily shut down from December 11, 1941 until January 8, 1942. The Nippu Jiji was renamed to the Hawaii Times on November 2, 1942. President Yasutarō Sōga’s son Shigeo became the new president and the editor in chief on December 8, 1942. Although the Hawaii Times closed down in 1985, the Hawaii Times Photo Archives Foundation salvaged the publisher’s photo archives consisting of approximately 25,0000 photographs and related information.

For the publisher’s history, please refer to the Hawaii Times 60th Anniversary 1895–1955 published on October 1, 1955.
