Commemorating Hawaii’s role in WWI, 1919.

THIS IS THE STATUE SCULPTED BY BURNHAM TO COMMEMORATE THE MILITARY SERVICE OF HAWAIIANS IN THE WAR.

In the middle is the commemorative statue for Hawaii’s part it took in the war that was sculpted by the sculptor Roger Noble Burnham. This is that statue that is intended to be placed outside of Kapiolani Park in the area set aside for it by the legislature.

This is the Memorial that Hawaii wanted to stand for all times, something for the people to look upon. On one side of the sculpture is a war leader, and on the other side, a Hawaiian girl. Beneath this is a soldier on one side and a sailor on the other side.

“A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER”

THE ISENBERG-COOKE-RICE MEMORIAL

NOT with the purpose oft vain–glorious shows,
But to express the rooted faith that grows
Like that small mustard see. Beauty and Art,
Like two twin souls nor care nor fret can part,
Here meet in chaste embrace; in sweet combine
Their tender tendrils clasp and strong entwine
The wisdom of the ages long to teach,
The all-prevailing truth, –the one great speech–
To lift our eyes, our hearts, our minds above,
To learn, to feel to know that—‘GOD IS LOVE.’

ARTIST STEFAN SINDING

STEFAN Sinding, the celebrated sculptor of this beautiful monument, is Norwegian by birth, one of three brothers, each having attained a name for himself, one an artist and another a musical composer. Sinding married an actress of high repute, a favorite at the Court of Copenhagen, who, during the early years of their married life, followed her profession in order to assist her husband until his name was made, he, as in the case with so many of real genius, having to work strenuously to acquire that perfection in art which placed him t0-day at the top of his profession. Mr. Sinding and his wife have one son, a civil engineer.

Veterans’ Day in Hilo Town, 1943.

The 11th of November

Twenty-five years ago, on a Sunday, there was heard the ringing of the church bells here in Hilo. People asked one another, “What are these bells ringing?”

Calls to the telephone operator [kikowaena] rushed in, “Why are the bells sounding?”

The operator replied, “THE WAR IS OVER IN EUROPE. The opposing nations surrendered, and the Treaty was signed.”

That is when people began shouting, and those of the Chinese shops were woken up. Firecrackers were purchased and set off, and cars began going through the streets tooting their horns and dragging cans behind them. This did not cease until the hours of dawn came.

The following Monday became a great day in Hawaii nei and all of those victorious countries of the first world war. There were no bars in those days, because of the prohibition. Continue reading
