Ray Tsuchiyama's family arrived on Maui in the early 1900s. For 100+ blogs over the last two years, he sees himself re-interpreting Maui and Hawai'i history through a current perspective. 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 Tokyo Olympics. Recently he did a commentary on long-distance Hawaiian channel swimming for Hawai'i Public Radio.
