Here is the original conceptual drawing of the future layout of HPA's Upper Campus. When construction of the Upper Campus began it was void of trees and barren--and yet someone had the vision of what this place could become!
Mr. Solmssen and his official faculty photograph from the 1967 #kamakani yearbook!

Mr. Solmssen began teaching at HPA in 1957 when it was still known as the Hawaii Episcopal Academy. What a legend!
