North Kohala Public Library in Kapaau will conclude the winter series of “talk story” sessions on Hawaii’s History with North Kohala historian, Boyd D. Bond, with a presentation at 6:30 p.m. on April 21.
The final program in the series will focus on Hawaii in wartime and examine the impact of the Civil War, World War I and World War II on Hawaii. Boyd Bond’s knowledge of Hawaii’s history stems from his academic studies and from a lifetime spent in Hawaii as a sixth generation descendent of early western settlers in Hawaii. Boyd was raised in Hawaii in a sugar plantation family, living on plantations throughout the state. Bond earned a Bachelor of Arts in Hawaiian history from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and went on to earn a master’s degree in education.
