Proceeds from this event support the Preservation Honor Awards and other programs of Historic Hawaii Foundation.

The Preservation Honor Awards are Hawaii’s highest recognition of preservation projects that perpetuate, rehabilitate, restore or interpret the state’s architectural, archaeological and/or cultural heritage. Presented annually by Historic Hawaii Foundation since 1975, the Honor Awards recognize exceptional preservation projects and programs from across the state.

Awards are given to projects that exhibit excellence in planning, implementation, and follow-through of work that demonstrates historic preservation as a strategy for the protection, understanding, revitalization, use or celebration of Hawai‘i’s historic and cultural sites.

Categories include honors presented for specific preservation or rehabilitation projects; printed publications or visual presentations which interpret the history or preservation of a site; and for engaging in efforts that support preservation.

Preservation Honor Awards 2017 - HONOREES

9th Annual Frank Haines Award

Don Hibbard, PhD, Architectural Historian

Dr. Don Hibbard has been involved in preservation of Hawaii's historic sites since moving permanently to Hawaii in the late 1970s. He graduated with his MA in American Studies in 1968 and with his PhD in 1976. He was the first Administrator of the newly established State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) in 1991 and continued to serve until 2002. Prior to that, he worked as Director of Preservation within the State Parks Division. Dr. Hibbard has been instrumental in many of the preservation programs we now take for granted, such as establishing the Rules for the SHPD, establishing the three branches of the Division and helping to write Hawaii Revised Statutes, Chapter 6E. His previous work between his degrees and before permanently moving to Hawaii included a job in the Idaho State Historical Society. The highly collectible and accessible DLNR calendar is the brain child of Dr. Hibbard which he continues to produce till today as a volunteer. Retirement has not slowed down his interest and commitment to the preservation of Hawaii's historic resources.
