Title

First Group That Went to Hawaii for Recruiting Photo

Description

Members of a recruitment team in a photo taken during Pacific University's first recruitment trip to Hawaii. This trip took place in the year following the formation of the Hawaiian Club (November 1959) which was formed by nineteen Hawaiian students. Along with the recruitment trip, this year saw the first visit of a Pacific University president (M.A.F. Ritchie). Previously, Ritchie's presidential inauguration was attended by Hawaii's first state Governor, and his trip to Hawaii was seen partly as a response to that visit. These events served to solidify an official relationship between Pacific University and Hawaii that would contribute to the growing presence of students attending Pacific from Hawaii.
