engineers and architects of Hawaii

Hawaii's oldest engineers' & architects' association,

meeting since 1902.


2017 June Program

Program Chair: Sam Gillie – President


Friday June 2

Speaker: Bill "Noodle" Leary

Title:” Man Against the Sea”

Bill skippered his 35 foot sailboat Moku Pe'a on an 8,000 nautical mile voyage down to and through the still pristine South Pacific.  Bill's talk will be related to the engineering challenges presented to a sailor faced with battling the Golden Goddess the Sea, but with modern sailing technology.  The talk will be of particular interest to those of us who dream of being deepwater sailors but are confined within our engineer's/architect's bodies.

Friday June 9 

No Meeting -- Kamehameha Day Holiday


Friday June 16  

Speaker: Sam Gillie

Title: “EAH in the War Years 1941 to 1945”


Sam Gillie has researched the 250 EAH weekly Bulletins between 1941 to 1945 to determine the Engineers and Architects of Hawaii’s contributions to the War effort.  Was the start of the War really a surprise for the citizens and leaders of Hawaii?   


Friday June 23  

Speaker: Dr.Laura Kong Director NOAA International Tsunami Information Center (ITIC)

Title: “Preserving O'ahu Historical Tsunami Photos”

ITIC is partnering with the Honolulu Department of Emergency Management (DEM) and the Hawai‘i State Public Library System to identify, preserve, and archive historic tsunami images. These photos and their personal stories, are an important, but perishable, part of our tsunami history and heritage.   We know of the tsunami images held within the collections at the Bishop Museum, Hawai‘i State Archives, Pacific Tsunami Museum, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and in ITIC.  Now we are asking island residents to look for photos in their family collections as these tell the rest of our tsunami story.


Friday June 30 (EAH Annual Meeting officer elections)

Speaker: Travis Hylton – Past President

Title: “World Travels”

Travis has returned to Hawaii after spending several years traveling the World.  He will tell and show us his sights and experiences during those travels.
