Bond to offer Hawaii history talk at N. Kohala Library

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.
