April 1952

Paradise of the Pacific, predecessor to HONOLULU Magazine, explores ‘Aina Haina, one of O‘ahu’s newest suburbs. About a decade earlier, the entire valley was occupied by the Hind-Clark Dairy, owned by Robert Hind. ‘Aina Haina literally means “Hind’s land.” With its new school and commercial center (above), the area was touted as O‘ahu’s “city within a city.” Paradise writes, “Informal entertaining, neighborhood cooperative parties and barbeques provide relaxation for residents, who are otherwise busy with yard work, hobbies and projects dealing with the beautification of their homes.”

April 1967

HONOLULU Magazine interviews Robert Reed, director of ETV (Educational Television, known today as PBS Hawai‘i), which celebrates its first anniversary. The station’s most popular programs are the ones that require audience involvement, Reed says, including Julia Child’s The French Chef. “People say it’s made owning a television set valuable for the first time.” In the photo at left, students learn ‘ukulele basics from a station program.

April 1987

A year after becoming the first Hawai‘i native to be named to Major League Baseball’s All-Star Team, pitcher Sid Fernandez talks to HONOLULU Magazine about his career with the New York Mets and his new six-figure salary. “I’ve never been a greedy person,” says Fernandez, a graduate of Kaiser High School. “I’m fortunate to make in one year what it might take someone else 30 years to make. When my agent goes and talks to the Mets, I get kind of scared, because I would take a third of what he’s asking for.” Fernandez retired from the Houston Astros in 1997.
