Perspectives on Hawai‘i’s Statehood

Daniel Tuttle

Daniel Tuttle

“Many, many people, of course, contributed to Hawai‘i’s statehood. They number from hundreds into the thousands of people who were for statehood and did one thing or another. (They) went down to Bishop Street and signed a scroll out on the street and (had) all sorts of ‘celebrations.’ But if one were to really single out any one person that got statehood for Hawai‘i, albeit a circuitous route via Alaska, it was George Lehleitner. And he, in my book, he’s the true hero.” —Daniel Tuttle
