Albert Nawahi Like

This article presents an interview with Albert Nawahi Like, Hawai'i Department of Education teacher from 1927 to 1965. Albert Nawahi Like was born 1900 in Honolulu's Chinatown. When Like was eight years old, his family moved to Kalihi. After the death in 1912 of his father, Edward Like, who was editor of the Hawaiian-language newspaper "Ke Aloha 'Aina," and the remarriage of his mother, Like returned to Chinatown and attended school at nearby St. Louis, then located on River Street. Upon graduation, Like enrolled in classes at the University of Hawai'i in 192. Three years later, after taking classes at the Territorial Normal and Training School, Like began teaching young patients at Kalihi Hospital, the Hansen's disease facility also known as the Kalihi Receiving Station. With the closing of the school shortly after the start of World War II, Like transferred to Central Intermediate School, where he taught for over twenty years until his retirement in 1965. In this interview, Like narrates his life experiences and focuses on his childhood, education, professional career, and the events that shaped his life. (Contains 3 endnotes.
