Ray Tsuchiyama's family arrived on Maui in the early 1900s. His late father was a member of the Maui High Class of '37 along with Dan Aoki, Governor John Burns' right-hand man; his uncle was president of the 442nd Club of Maui; his aunt retired from teaching at Wailuku Elementary School. For an earlier essay on the Hawaiian regional architectural style of C. W. Dickey, the American Institute of Architects Hawai'i Chapter presented him a "Best Essay Award"; he has published on the history of the Natatorium for Honolulu magazine, plus numerous Op-Ed essays for the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, including a recent piece on pre-World War II Maui and the Olympics. Recently he did a commentary on long-distance Hawaiian channel swimming for Hawai'i Public Radio. He studies 'olelo Hawai'i, and is especially fond of new Hawaiian words for tech and scientific usage.
