Mr. A. T. Atkinson has been made the organist [hookani ogana] for the Kawaiahao Church, and beginning this week, he will perform alone for the first time.
[This is just a tiny episode in the amazing life of Alatau Atkinson. There will be a talk on his life given by visiting author and journalist Nick Fielding at the Center for Biographical Research, UH Manoa today from noon to 1:15 at Henke Hall!]

I was very excited to see this report and would be interested to know if there are any other articles in the Hawaiian press that mention Alatau. Incidentally, I very much enjoyed giving the talk at UH Manoa and hope to be able to return again before long. The story of Alatau and his family reflects many of the great events that took place in Hawaii at the end of the nineteenth-beginning of the twentieth centuries.
Your presentation was exciting. Thank you very much. There are indeed many mentions of Alatau in the Hawaiian-language newspapers!
Thank you for letting me know. Of course, I can’t ask you to translate them all, but if you or your readers come across articles that are particularly interesting I would be delighted to hear about them.
