Most are from U.S. Mainland newspapers. Ukulele was once a fad on the Mainland, so I searched “ukulele” in newspapers from all states but Hawaii.
Since upload, the ukulele ads instantly became popular in our collection. Many viewers seemed to find them through searching “ukulele” on Flickr.
In the past five years, Father Damien and Marianne Cope became Hawaii’s first two Catholic saints. Brother Joseph Dutton could become the third. Like them, he spent the rest of his life, forty-two years, helping exiled leprosy victims in Kalaupapa, Molokai.
Brother Joseph wasn’t always a Catholic missionary. In Wisconsin, he was a civil war veteran who worked in a successful career, but struggled with depression, a failed marriage, and alcoholism. At age forty, Brother Joseph started practicing the Catholic faith, retired from his job, and started a new life. He told his friends,
“I had a feeling that I wanted to be in touch with human sufferings, to be active in the relief of those of my fellow-beings who were afflicted, yet so as not to bring me in direct contact with the outside world.”
