Notes: The fifteenth and final volume of this guide to American life and to Hawaii, followed by a directory of the Japanese American residents of Hawaii. This directory was published in February 1941, just over nine months before the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese air force. It includes a list of community organizations, a directory of businesses, production statistics, results of sporting events, a list of government officials, and a guide to US immigration procedures.
The directory of residents has separately paginated sections for each island with a map of the island inserted before the directory entries. Each entry includes the city where they were born and their profession.
