I have just started reading the Honolulu Star-Bulletin from 1925. On
January 20, the following item appears:
DON BLANDING COMING
BACK TO HAWAII SOON
Don Blanding, former Honolulu artist and writer, will soon return to
the islands after about eight months' absence. He went to Europe
last summer for study, stayed awhile in London and Paris, and
returned to new York late last fall. He is returning to Hawaii to
join the staff of the Charles R. Frazier Co. He is expected next
A second item appears in the February 4, 1925 edition:
DON BLANDING WRITES
OF COLORFUL MARKETS
FOUND IN HONOLULU
Don Blanding, former Honolulan, is the author of a feature story in a
recent issue of the New York Herald Tribune entitled "Social and
Esthetic Pleasure to Market in Honolulu." It deals with the
picturesque phases of marketing here and is filled with local color.
Blanding, who went to Europe last year for art studies, is returning
to Honolulu the end of this month.
I'm preparing for this weekend's Tacoma Dome antiques show and will
not have an opportunity to read more S-B microfilm until next
Monday. I'll try to locate the Herald Tribune article -- probably
late January 1925 -- though I'm not sure the Seattle library has
microfilm for the Herald Tribune.
Anyone have direct and immediate access to the Trib?
