Falls of Clyde Faces Bleak Future
By Jill Byus Radke

         fter years of struggling to keep the Falls of Clyde
           afloat, the Bishop Museum issued a call for a
            new benefactor who can provide the resources
necessary to save the National Historic Landmark. Should
a benefactor not be located by the end of this June, the Falls
will either sink at its berth or be towed and sunk.
    The Falls of Clyde is the last floating fully-rigged four-
masted ship in the world. Originally launched in Scotland
in 1878, she arrived in Hawai‘i in 1898 as the ninth ship of
Captain Matson’s original sugar fleet. She transported sugar
from Hilo to the mainland until she was converted to an oil
tanker in 1907. After serving as an oil tanker and being sold
several times subsequently, she was saved from the scrap
yard and returned to Honolulu in 1963 as a museum ship.
In 1973 she was listed on the National Register of Historic
Places and in 1989 she was listed as a National Landmark by
the Secretary of the Interior.
    Over the years, the ship’s condition deteriorated despite
the efforts of champions such as Bob Krauss, Robert Pfeiffer
and David Lyman and $3 million of restoration. The Falls of
Clyde was listed on Historic Hawai‘i Foundation’s inaugural
“Most Endangered Historic Sites” list in 2005.
    The ship was closed to visitors in February 2007 and the
museum hired an independent marine surveyor, Joseph W.
Lombardi, who is considered one of the leading experts on
marine vessels in the nation, to evaluate the condition of the
ship and suggest remedies and estimated costs for needed
    According to Bishop Museum, Lombardi’s 195-page                                                             Photo: hhF Archives

$24 million to restore the ship, and up to $1 million required       “The Falls of Clyde is an important part of Hawai‘i’s mari-

the country, and long-time supporters in the preservation
community, not the least of which is the National Trust for              Executive Director’s Report
Historic Preservation, that led to the adoption of this policy.
                                                                         continued from page 2
    Passed by the ACHP in May of this year, the policy
commits the ACHP to ensuring that Native Hawaiian
organizations (NHO) have the opportunities to which they
are entitled under the NHPA to participate in the national
historic preservation dialogue and program. It also implies
the commitment of staff time and resources to helping other
federal agencies meet their responsibilities to NHOs under
the law as well. If the Tribal Policy adopted in 2002 is any
indication, this policy will lead to a significantly stronger
and more consistent voice for Native Hawaiians.
    John Nau, Chair of the Council and a consistent support-
er of Native Hawaiian involvement in the national dialogue
on historic preservation, in recent executive level commu-
nication to all federal agencies, encouraged each of them to
take similar steps to adopt policy or protocols for consulting
with NHOs. He concludes that such action would demon-
strate a serious commitment to working with NHOs and
provide predictability to meeting their responsibilities.                The IBM building, an example of “regional modernism” by
