In honor of Pearl Harbor Day, here’s a long-neglected story by Elizabeth McIntosh, a reporter for the Hololulu Star-Bulletin who covered the attack. It’s an excellent account written by a woman who was there.

Here’s a video interview with Ms. McIntosh done by The Washington Post when she was 97. She’s a star.

(Thanks to Eric Skaar for bringing Ms. McIntosh’s story to my attention.)

Also, here’s President Roosevelt’s “Day of Infamy” address to Congress, delivered on December 8th.
