James McGuire Collection

Hawaiian artifact collection of James Washington Lonoikauoali`i McGuire

James Washington Lonoikauoaliʻi McGuire (1862-1941) was born in Kainaliu, Kona on the island of Hawaii. His father was of Irish ancestry, and his maternal grandmother was Kilioe Kaheanaikeaokiekie of Oahu. As a young man, McGuire served as an attendant, or Special Equerry, to Queens Kapiʻolani and Liliʻuokalani. He served as the custodian of Iolani Palace for several years. Over his lifetime he acquired a variety of Hawaiian artifacts for his personal collection, which were itemized in his last will and testament. He deeded that collection to the Oahu Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in his will. Ownership of the artifacts was transferred to the Archives of the Church College of Hawaii, now BYU-Hawaii, in 1964.  The collection was initially curated by Hal Hunter.
