In Memoriam – Will Kyselka (1921-2012)
Posted by UH Press Marketing on 16 July 2012
Author and teacher Will Kyselka, a key figure in the revival of Polynesian wayfinding who sailed aboard the escort vessel for Hokule‘a on its 1980 voyage, passed away on July 1 at the age of 91. He was a lecturer at the Bishop Museum Planetarium and a retired associate professor at the University of Hawai‘i Curriculum Research & Development Group. Long fascinated with modes of learning, in An Ocean in Mind he told the story of the 1980 journey while exploring how the mind acquires, utilizes, and transmits different forms of knowledge.
