Mrs. Renee Nogle sees Hawaii for the first time, 1934.


Mrs. Renee Nogle, a Hawaiian woman, stood on one side of the steamship Lurline as it came up to the harbor, and she saw Hawaii nei for the very first time in her life.

The happiness of the malihini of all ethnicities chatting away about the beauty of this land, lush before their eyes, cannot be compared to the great joy felt by this Hawaiian lady when she saw for the very first time the land of birth of her parents and kupuna.

Mrs. Nogle was born in Boston from the loins of her Hawaiian parents there after they were married.

Mayor Wilson went to meet the young woman to welcome this young Hawaiian woman to the beloved soil of her kupuna.

Mrs. Nogle is a younger sister of Mrs. Eddie Bush [Mr. Eddie Bush], a famous musician and singer of the Biltmore [Biltmore Trio].
