Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection consists chiefly of correspondence between Ida May Pope (1862-1914), her sister Anne, and fellow Hawaiians, missionaries and teachers. Subjects included in this collection chiefly consist of education and teachers in Hawaii (and Kosrae), and Hawaiian history and social customs.
Ida May Pope was born in Crestline, Ohio, July 30, 1862. She was the third child among seven. In 1890 she obtained a "temporary" teaching assignment at Kawaiaha'o Seminary for girls and she sailed for Hawaii. Pope stayed in Hawaii, and in 1894 she became the first principal of Kamehameha Girls' School in Honolulu. Her sisters Anne and Katherine followed her to Hawaii and also became teachers. Pope never married and died July 14, 1914, in Chicago.
