Aloha, kaua e Craig: Records that I have going back so far are not complete. All I have are the following: Albert Wilkinson [09/03/1912 to 06/06/1913] Junior Year - Grade 11; Charles Wilkinson [09/05/1922 to 06/15/1923] Freshman Year - Grade 09; James Wilkinson [09/03/1912 to 06/19/1914] Junior & Senior Year, it would seem that he did graduate from Saint Louis College [name of school at that time]. There is a picture of James on his transcript; this means he graduated from St. Louis College. The records do not show the names of parents, birthdates, reason for leaving. They just indicate the information that I am sending to you.

||1930 United States Census - 1046 Kealaolu Avenue, Kahala, Hawaii|

||1920 United States Census - 1261 Center Street, Honolulu, Hawaii|
The 1920 U.S. Census shows: Lily Wilkinson, head of household, owner of property, 43 years old, a widow, arrived in the U.S. in 1892, an alien, born in Switzerland, mother language French [seems doubtful, since she was from German Switzerland]. Lily is living with her sons Albert, age 23, a collector in a Bank; James, age 21, a machinist at the Iron Works; and Charles, age 14. All are shown to be "octaroons," which means "an offspring of a quadroon and a white parent; a person who is one-eighth black." Virtually everyone on this census sheet is shown to be an "octaroon," which is impossible.

||Albert "Baba" Wilkinson and Tommy on the Judd Memorial Trail, Nuuanu Valley, Honolulu - 1958|
The Judd Memorial Trail was called the "secret trail" by us. I think it was built with Federal funds during the depression, and it starts above Dowsett Highlands and runs up to the Old Pali Road. Along the way there are Norfolk pine, guava trees, and some man-made mud slides down into Jackass Ginger pool. This photo, circa 1958, of Baba and Tommy (last name long forgotten) at the start of the hike.

||Recording of Albert Wilkinson - 1961|
This recording was made by Albert "Baba" Wilkinson in 1961, three months after he retired from the Bank of Hawaii. It was made on reel-to-reel tape, and hasn't been played since it was recorded. We kept it, safe, for 51 years. We had it professionally digitized in 2012, and when I first played it I was struck by the fact that "Baba" was 65 years old, and he was now speaking to me (it sounded like he was in the room with me) -- and I am now almost 63 years old. -- CWW
