HOME | INTRODUCTION | FOREWORD | CHAPTERS 5 & 8 | TIMELINE
The events triggered by publication of the "Broken Trust" essay on Aug. 9, 1997, in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin still rouse the emotions of island residents. The lives of all in Hawaii were affected by the resulting upheaval at Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate. The 6,400-word essay examined, in painful detail, how the final wishes of a beloved princess had been betrayed by those at the highest levels of power in Hawaii. A new book by two of the essay's authors tells the story of Princess Pauahi's legacy and the abuse and exploitation that nearly destroyed it. Beginning today the Star-Bulletin presents an exclusive series of excerpts from "Broken Trust: Greed, Mismanagement & Political Manipulation at America's Largest Charitable Trust" by Samuel P. King and Randall W. Roth.
