On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO), the Smithsonian Institution (Washington, D.C.) has reprinted an historic, hard-to-find reference on volcanic activity in Hawaii and around the world that was published at the observatory from 1925 to 1955. The Volcano Letter contains the definitive reports of many Hawaiian eruptions, such as activity in Halemaumau at Kilauea from the late 1920s to 1934 and the Mauna Loa eruptions of 1935 and the 1940s; accounts of the development of volcano-monitoring techniques at HVO; scholarly reports on historic activity at volcanos in Hawaii and around the world; and reports of seismicity in Hawaii and elsewhere.
