I’ve been doing a lot of research for the Hawaiian chapters that’s now starting to pay off, even though I’ve finished writing these chapters. It mainly will help me go back to the chapters and enrich them.
I’ve had excellent help from a researcher named Alexis who has dug around at the state library for a lot of stuff, including this cool little cartoon that was in the April 1, 1968 Honolulu Advertiser, on the front page of the Perspective section, Hawaii’s Week In Review, Section D.
Another outcome is a chance to contact one of the surviving owners of the Lemon Tree who is also helping me add detail.
These nine weeks in Hawaii are among the most important in the book. An amazing number of highs and lows are compressed into this engagement.
