Charles Bishop's Life Celebrated

By Minna Sugimoto

NUUANU (KHNL) -- Music filled the air during a memorial celebration for Charles Reed Bishop Friday. It was the 186th anniversary of his birthday.

Students at the Kamehameha Schools were among those who gathered at the Royal Mausoleum in Nuuanu.

Bishop was married to the schools' founder, Bernice Pauahi Bishop, and donated to hospitals, churches and welfare organizations.

"This man was such a great man," Corbett Kalama, Bishop trustee, said. "He was a man of adventure. He was a man of passion. He was a man who loved Hawaii from the first time that he set sight on it."

Bishop died in 1915 but is still contributing through his trust, which provides money for the Bishop Museum and Mauna Ala.
