Bryan, Jr. Â—then, manager of the Bishop Museum in HonoluluÂ—and his staff at the museumÂ’s Paci c Scienti c Information Center prepared an in-depth guide to the geography, biodiversity and history of the Marshall Islands and the cultural practices, lifestyles and histories of the Marshallese people. Written specially for Kwajalein Hourglass readers, the 24part series appeared over the course of two years and was titled Â“The Marshalls and the Paci c.Â” Uncovered at the Grace Sherwood Library, it comprises a literal bounty of professionally-curated essays that take the reader on a profound tour of knowledge on everything from marine shell identi cation and the etymology of atoll names, to the traditional division of labor in the Marshallese household and explanations on how atolls are formed. What follows in coming Hourglass issues are excerpts from the timeless Â“Marshalls and the Paci cÂ” series. Enjoy. *Continued from July 2, 2016 SEE Â“CLIMATE,Â” PAGE 7
