The research and content developmen on the early American (1898-1941) and post-World War II periods in Guam for the online encyclopedia, Guampedia.

The Guam Humanities Council is developing an online encyclopedia about the island of Guam, a U.S. territory. A main content area of the encyclopedia is the long and complex history of America in Guam. This project will entail conducting research on the early American (1898-1941) and post World War II periods (1945-1970) in Guam to fully document through written entries, historical documents, photographs, video, audio and maps the important influence of America on the island and its people.
