Article about Colonel Kendall Fielder, one of the honorary members of Club 100

Colonel Kendall J. Fielder, a long time Kamaaina of Hawaii, and presently with the Public Relations Department of the War Department in Washington, was unanimously elected Honorary Member of the CLUB 100 at a delegate’s meeting held at the Club House on July 20, l946.

Colonel Fielder’s outstanding service in Hawaii during the difficult war years in controlling distrust and suspicion in the community greatly relieved social pressures on our parents and friends.

More recently, he was the man primarily responsible for the big welcome accorded the boys from the 442nd and 100th who are bringing back the Colors of the outfits when they hit New York. The untiring work of Colonel Fielder and of our other HONORARY MEMBER in Washington, Delegate Joseph R. Farrington, made it possible for the 100th to return to Hawaii to be deactivated, at the same time, our colors will come back with the unit to be retained in Hawaii.

Most of us have heard of the Colonel, however, not too many of us have had the pleasure of meeting him. His sincere efforts for the welfare and progress of our members and their families have been an outstanding feature of his work here in Hawaii and in Washington. A letter has been sent him asking if he would honor us by accepting the offer. We welcome Colonel Kendall J. Fielder as one of the FOUR HONORARY MEMBERS of the CLUB 100 from HAWAII.
