    The history of the formative years of Kamehameha Schools, those first vital years when the new institution was making its start, is, to a considerable extent, the history of a few illustrious men and women who contributed their services and wise guidance to instilling into the school those ideals and traditions that Princess Pauahi evidenced a desire for through her will. Building slowly but solidly these men and women laid the foundation of excellence on which the school of today rests.
