Container List

Brief Biographical Note: In 1934, James L. Carroll won the $25 prize for the best map of Kuahiwi Alapaki, the area at the top of the Kapalama ahupua'a. In 1936, he was a spare, one who might substitute for those already on the Equatorial Line Islands which over 50 Kamehameha School for Boys students and alumni helped colonize for the U.S.A. From 1940-45, he was a homicide detective with the Honolulu Police Department. From 1945-77, he joined Hawaii Medical Services Association (HMSA), a health insurance company and retired as vice-president of community relations. He currently (as of 2004) resides in Kailua, O'ahu, Hawai'i.
