Honolulu Town: From Settlement to StatehoodOctober 4, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Manoa Campus, Henke 325
Honolulu Town is a joint effort by Laura Ruby and Ross W. Stephenson to document social, rather than economic or political, histories within Honolulu.
Both authors have lived here most of their lives and wished to record people's personal experiences that help to identify our neighborhoods. Subjects include the evolution of the waterfront; development of churches and other community assistance organizations; evolution of the school systems; and the challenges that faced us in our efforts to improve our quality of life. The book's format uses photographs from public and private organizations and individuals, coupled with background descriptions, to document scenes and institutions within the area bounded roughly by the harbor, Pālama, the Ko‘olau Mountains, and Thomas Square.
Laura Ruby is the editor of Mō‘ili‘ili–The Life of a Community, the 2008 recipient of the Hawai‘i Individual Artist Fellowship, and the creator of Site of Passage–Chinatown, a large commissioned site-specific sculpture. She has taught art at the University of Hawai‘i since 1977.
Ross W. Stephenson is the historian at the Hawai‘i State Historic Preservation Division of the Department of Land and Natural Resources, and he is the keeper of the Hawai‘i Register of Historic Places. He holds both a doctorate and master’s degree in urban planning, focusing on the developmental history of Honolulu.
