Other Events and Notes of Interest


Presents the video “The Island Murder” on Friday, September 14, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. In the summer 1931, Honolulu's tropical tranquility was shattered when a young Navy wife made a drastic allegation of rape against five nonwhite islanders. What unfolded in the following days and weeks was a racially-charged murder case that would make headlines across the nation, enrage Hawai'i's native population, and galvanize the island's law enforcers and the nation's social elite. Sponsored by the WHOI Visitor Center. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.


Presents the video “The Bombing of Wall Street” on Friday, September 21, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole.
