It was the world's fair in America that had hosted the most foreign exhibitors at that time, including China and Japan.[5] Henry A. Peirce was the Special Commissioner for the Hawaii (then Kingdom of Hawaii) exhibition.[1]

Although a locally organized exhibition, Congress sanctioned the inclusion of exhibits without duty.[5]

Morris & Co exhibited and occupied six rooms (total space forty-five feet by thirty feet) showing tapestries and carpets.[4]
