Maui resident David Lindsay also remembered the general location of the Haiku Camp as the existing Horizon's Academy building located at 740 Haiku Road that may have been part of the Old Haiku Pineapple Company.\n  <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref3_3-0\">\n   <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref3-3\">\n    [3]\n   </a>\n  </sup>\n  During the war, Swedish Vice-Council G.W. Olson reported on September 23, 1943 that Haiku Camp was \"the best of all the internment camps in the territory\" noting that as it was a \"most delightful place . . . I would have stayed there than return to the hotel in Wailuku.\"\n  <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref4_4-0\">\n   <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref4-4\">\n    [4]\n   </a>\n  </sup>\n  At the time of Olson's visit on September 8, 1943, there were only four internees, only one of whom was a Japanese citizen.\n </p>\n <p>\n  The current area that the camp was likely located in is now a residential area that has no trace of its use as an incarceration site during World War II. The Horizon's Academy building that was the officers' club has been extensively remodeled although the general structure appears to be original. Further research is needed on this and other Maui incarceration sites to determine its exact use, prisoner population, and duration of operation.\n </p>\n <div id=\"authorByline\">\n  <b>\n   Authored by\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Kelli_Y._Nakamura/\" title=\"Kelli Y.
