‘The Robert Caro Of Hawaii’

“As the decades passed, [David W.] Forbes [has] painstakingly tracked down archival portraits of people alive in that era, in libraries and private collections throughout the islands. That set him on a half-century hunt for clues about the dynastic line of Hawaiian royals. … [One eminent colleague] believes that Forbes’s life work — the four-volume Hawaiian Bibliography and The Diaries of Queen Lili’uokalani — will be used by scholars for decades to come.” – Literary Hub

I was reminded of the importance of the overarching vision while reading Richard M. Weaver’s Ideas Have Consequences. In it, he says, “logic depends on the dream, and not the dream upon it . . . a waning of the dream results in confusion.” While his language from 1948 might be a bit dated, his ideas are not. What do I mean by dream? I mean the big “why,” t...

These days he's designing a very different take on the aerial gadgets. As an aeronautical engineer and the inheritor of a family business that makes mechanical flying bird toys, Van Ruymbeke is uniquely positioned to explore bird and insect-inspired biomimetic drones...
