8 Who would have dreamed on that June day in 1868 when the first 149 Japanese contract laborers arrived in Hawaii aboard the ship Scioto that these people w ould be the "p ilg rim s" of a new era in America. For as a sociologist suggested a few years ago, it is the Japanese-Am erican, like the English-Am erican of the 1600s, w ho helped develop the Am erican spirit, the Am erican "w ay of life," if you w ill. This sociologist called these Japanese settlers, "the most ubiquitous, the most freedom loving, the most independent, the most patriotic of the im m igrants to step ashore in w hat was soon to become the last outpost of America and the last chance for America to retain the freedoms it was gradually surrendering in the name of progress." In a way it was these attributes that caused the Japanese-American so much difficulty. It was their sense of patriotism for their new home, America, that was misunderstood by some in 1941 w hen W orld War II engulfed Hawaii and America. The uniform ed, uneducated who thought the Japanese-Am ericans were to be feared because they were natives of Japan, Am erica's enemy for the moment, didn't understand the difference between nationalism and patriotism. In Japan, the Japanese are patriotic to the Emperor and the leaders of their nation whom they believe deserve th e ir patriotic support. As Japanese-A m ericans, Japanese-Brazilians, Japanese- W hatever, their patriotism is to their new home and, as this sociologist suggests, they become the best of citizens w herever they live. The Japanese-American in Hawaii has accepted the task handed him. He has excelled in every phase of life in Hawaii and throughout America despite the obstacles in his path. If his success throughout America has not been as evident as in Hawaii then that is because Am erica is not yet as much of a Paradise as Hawaii is. At least that is the dream. As a form er East-West Center professor wrote, "H aw aii is not perfect in its social relationships, anymore than America is perfect in its way of life and governm ent, but it is the best anyone can offer anywhere "W hat is so great about Hawaii? It's fascinating past, vigorous present and prophetic future. It is the American dream of diversity in its fullest em bodiment. "This extraordinary mid-pacific mixing pot (not m elting pot, you'll notice) has kept alive several different ethnic strains instead of grinding them down into a general Am erican ham burger. This is much more than a toleration of diversity; it is an active cultivation of differences for their own intrinsic sakes. It is the most im portant thing to learn about Hawaii. "The 700,000 citizens of Hawaii have found a dem ocratic future for Am erica, and it w orks." Another study of Hawaii by a California professor noted that "the Japanese were included to come to Hawaii and California because they could n 'tfin d anyone else to do the w ork that was necessary to develop the land. The Japanese didn't come to Hawaii uninvited guests as so many others had come before and have come since. "They were accused of taking over all the land in Hawaii when in truth they acquired land no one else wanted and w hen they made a success of the acquisition, the critics made the most of it. "Then the Japanese were accused of taking all the governm ent jobs in Hawaii. No one wanted the jobs because there were better paying jobs elsewhere. So the Japanese-American trained for the governm ent service and succeeded admirably. "They couldn't find candidates to run in the Democratic Party primaries. The Japanese-American agreed to try and he won not only because he was often the only candidate to offer his services, but because he was only candidate acceptable to the m ajority the only one the other groups could count on." "It's the same story in investments. And w hen the Japanese-American didn't take the chance, the Tokyo businessman w ould step in, often to the chagrin of Japanese-Americans w ho now resented foreign intrusion as much as any other Am erican... The Japanese-Am erican financier. The Japanese- American industrialist. The Japanese-Am erican scientist. The Japanese-Am erican lawmaker. The Japanese-American grocer. The Japanese-American farm er. The Japanese-Am erican Carpenter. Someone was needed to do a job. The Japanese- Am erican answered, quietly, efficiently. Some m ight say he showed pride in his work. You can call it that, if you w ish. But is more of a sense of appreciation of being alive. A sense of being a part of the world. So it was out of diversity that America became the greatest nation in th e world. It w ill rem a in g re a to n ly if we all recall our forebearers' struggle and as one famed historian noted about Am erican life, "There is no free lunch." The Japanese-Am erican knew "prosperity is not w ith o u t many fears and distates; and adversity is not w ith o u t com forts and hopes."

24 H O N O L U L U MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR "AMERICANS OF JAPANESE ANCESTRY" A BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD 1976 In the year that is the Bicentennial of the United States, it gives me the utmost pleasure to extend my greetings and best -wishes to the publishers of this valuable publication, to those -whose biographies are included here, and to all the many readers. This publication -will demonstrate once again, as it has during the years in the past, that citizens of Japanese ancestry have contributed most substantially to the building and gro-wth of the State of Hawaii and to the strong productive relationship that now exists between the United States and Japan. The distinguished works of the men and women whose lives are detailed in this volume were attained only through the overcoming of many difficulties. Above all, what is reflected here is the abiding faith of these people in themselves and in the society into which they were born and in which they have made their way. Those in private fields of endeavor are especially deserving of the honor paid them. For those of us whose lives have been devoted to politics and government, I believe the story is a little different. We reflect not so much any merit of our own as the faith people have put in us. Therefore, a very great many people of Japanese ancestry are honored here, and also those of other ethnic groups who have contributed. I believe our inclusion in this volume really reiterates our responsibility to all people of Hawaii to do our very best to give them the most effective representation and the best government we possibly can. I am sure we will accept the implied challenge without reservation.

26 DANIEL K. INOUYE H A W A II QlCnHeb ^Icdesi /S e n a te W A S H IN G T O N, O.C May 1976 INTRODUCTION As an American of Japanese ancestry in whom the myriad people of Hawaii have placed their faith to represent them in the Senate of the United States of America, I am honored by the invitation to write this preface to the Biographical Record of Americans of Japanese Ancestry. Our State of Hawaii is popularly known and admired for our harmonious mingling of people representing world-wide national origins. This particular volume is a chronicle of the contributions of Americans of Japanese ancestry to the cultural, economic and professional life of our progressive 50th State. Though it contains the biographies of individuals, it is, in a sense, the collective biography of what has long been the largest ethnic group in Hawaii -- the Japanese. The Japanese element of Hawaii originally came here in Those hardy immigrants came by invitation to fill a tremendous gap in the labor supply. From them and from those who followed them have come descendants whose achievements actually have been achievements for Hawaii. In every community, in every area of Hawaii's economic and cultural life, they have given freely of their labors, their talents, their energy to build a better life for all the people of Hawaii. According to the 1970 United States Census, people of Japanese origin comprise more than 28.3 percent of Hawaii's total population. Though not all of them, as individuals, could or even should -T- be listed in a book such as this, it is to these more than 217,669 loyal Americans that this chronicle is primarily directed. Obviously, this Biographical Record is of interest to all residents of Hawaii. It likewise is of interest to people everywhere who look to Hawaii as a leader in the achievement of the highest principles of true brotherhood among men of all races. The biographies presented here tell the story of an important era in the growth and development of our great vstate. I am sure this Biographical Record is of particular pride to every American of Japanese ancestry to see such public recognition of those whose achievements have earned them a place in this volume. May this spur our children -- and their children to even greater attainments in and for our State of/llawa: 25 IIEL K. INOUYE United States Senatoj

29 From out o ' the past.... K C DRIVE INN A rticle fr o m S tar-b u lletin 1968 This is to announce that the K C Drive Inn, oldest in Hawaii, sold more waffle hot dogs this week than ever before in its 40-year history. "W e are using 36 pounds of hot dogs a day," said cook-waitress Elsie Asato. No other business in Hawaii can make such a claim. That is because the only w affle hot dog machines known to exist in the 50th State, or anywhere in the country for that matter, are located mauka of the mustard jar at the K C Drive Inn at Kalakaua Avenue and the Ala Wai. "I don't believe anybody else makes them anymore, said pint-sized Peter Hanashiro, who cooked his first w affle hot dog 27 years ago. He said the battered, smokeblackened machines were already out of date w hen he went to work as chef at the K C Drive Inn in A bit of investigation shows that w affle hot dogs were introduced to Hawaii w hen the K C Drive Inn opened in 1927 during the adm inistration of Calvin Coolidge. K. C. Jiro Asato, an employe, and his w ife took over the business in 1934 during the adm inistration of Franklin D. Roosevelt. "The w affle hot dog machines were here th e n," said Mrs. Asato. "W e had nine stools and did about $6 worth of business a day. My husband used to go down to Am erican Factors every m orning for a gallon of catsup and a gallon of m ayonnaise." Mrs. Asato indicated that drive-in restaurants were as revolutionary at that tim e as sideburns are today. "There was a kiawe thicket in back," she explained. "Ala Wai Boulevard was fu ll of chuck holes. The street car to W aikiki came down McCully. The fare was 5 cents. She said the Makuas, a Hawaiian fam ily, lived across Kalakaua Avenue. "The children used to dive for coins in the Ala Wai Canal during the w a r," said Mrs. Asato. "Then they came to our drive-in to spend the m oney. By that time, she said, drive-in restaurants had become common in Hawaii. The biggest was Kau Kau Korner just across the canal at the intersection of Kapiolani Boulevard and Kalakaua Avenue where the car hops wore natty outfits w ith short skirts that displayed th e ir knees. At K C Drive Inn, the waitresses wore plain w hite uniform s that hid the knees. M rs.

Drive Inn may be the only one left in Hawaii where waitresses still w a it on customers in their cars. Some of the car hops, including Evelyn Uehara, have been there as long as 32 years. And one of the most popular items on the menu is still the w affle hot dog.
