Desoto Brown & Kiersten Faulkner
These presentations will present an in-depth look at the ways in which Hawaii was portrayed by the media during the 1950s as a modern Paradise of the Pacific, an exotic tropical island chain with all the amenities of home, and the ramifications of the success of this marketing on today’s historic preservation efforts.
