The 75th anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) was celebrated during January 1987. The festivities began on January 9 with the opening in Hilo of a major exhibit at the Wailoa Center on the current work of HVO, its history, and its special relationship to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. In addition to spectacular photographs of volcanic activity and HVO field work, the exhibit featured continuous showings of underwater footage taken during the recent eruptive activity (December 1986) and a computer monitor that displayed the activity of HVO seismic net in real time. The exhibit, which was coordinated by HVO librarian/photo archivist Taeko Jane Takahashi and which featured the professional work of HVO photographer J . D. Griggs, was well received and will probably form the core of a future traveling exhibit.
