Speaker: Paul Brennan – Retired Anthropologist

Title:  “Kailua: Where Two Waters Meet”
History of Kailua & Maunawili from the Civil War to now. Paul is a retired anthropologist, having done research with the East-West Center and the Bishop Museum. He also has conducted research in India and Papua New Guinea. Since moving to Hawaii with his family 26 years ago, he has conducted oral history interviews with over 100 of Kailua’s elders. Combining this information with archival research and extensive archaeological field work in Maunawili (Bishop Museum), he has written a history of Kailua’s ahupua’a. Community development is very important to Paul, and historical reconstruction and education is a vital means for Kailua to become a more vibrant, wholesome place to live and work.

No Meeting - Discoverer's Day


Friday – October 16th


Speakers: Philip Blackman, EAH Director, and Justin Davis Honolulu Art Museum


Topic: Student Poster Contest - Architecture, Science and Engineering


Philip Blackman is continuing his 3rd year of support for 6th to 12th graders to prepare science and engineering themed posters.  The contest scope was enlarged this semester to include architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright was added to the list of Leonardo DaVinci and Thomas Edison as icons for imaginative thinking. The majority of the posters deal with architectural ideas for Mars habitats.   Posters will be displayed at Kahala Mall 17 October during a National Chemistry week public event.  Phil will talk about the contest along with Justin Davis, science and art integration specialist from the Honolulu Art Museum as the contest explicitly asks for artistic persuasion to be a component.  The EAH membership and guests will be asked to judge and vote on the posters presented at the meeting.
