Call out to former Waialua Girls’ School students, 1881.


Pertaining to Haleiwa.

Haleiwa is the name of this Boarding School here in Waialua, the place where girls were educated; O. H. Gulick was the first teacher who lived here; after he left Waiohinu, Kau, this school was rebuilt, during the time he lived here and directed the school, and this school was named Haleiwa.

And this is a voice calling out to you, O students of Haleiwa School, from the time of Gulick until now, if you have not forgotten your aloha for Haleiwa; I ask you to each send to me answers to these questions which I ask you, and I want you each to tell me in a letter pertaining to these answers.

  1. What is your name?
  2. Where are you living at this time?
  3. What are you doing now?
  4. Are you married?
  5. If you are married, how many children do you have? And how old are they?
  6. Do you have a haole husband, hapa haole perhaps, or do you have a Hawaiian husband?
  7. Please tell me your story from when you left the school until this day.

And if some of these people who I call to have died, you husbands maybe, or parents perhaps, please answer about them to me.

Mary E. Green.

Waialua, Jan. 15, 1881.
