TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

Students of the ’91 Graduate Class of Kamehameha: Those standing from the Left—Thomas N. Haae, Charles Blake, William M. Keolanui, Samuel Kauhane, Fred K. Beckley, William K. Rathburn. Those seated—Solomon Hanohano, John K. Waiamau, William O. Crowell, Charles E. King, and Samuel Keliinoi.

[There are many priceless articles on this reunion; this includes the one that accompanies the picture which can be found here from pages 1 & 3.

It is pretty awesome that we can compare the graduation portrait of the class of 1891 which is on the Kamehameha Schools Archives page with this picture from 25 years later!]

King, Samuel Keliinoi, Frederick William Beckley, Solomon Hanohano, William K. Rathburn, and John K. Waiamau. On Hawaii island are Samuel Kauhane, William M.
