Surf Riders, Charles William Bartlett, 1920

Hawaii

Known as the "Aloha State" (in Hawaiian, "aloha" means "hello"), Hawaii is a group of volcanic islands in the central Pacific Ocean that together became the 50th state in 1959. The state's name is possibly derived from a native Hawaiian word for homeland, hawaiki or owhyhee. Today, Hawaii, whose capital is Honolulu, is often called the "Crossroads of the Pacific" and is a popular vacation spot. The colorful hibiscus is the state flower.

Falls of Clyde, a National Historic Landmark vessel, is the world's only surviving four-masted, full-rigged ship and the only surviving sailing oil tanker left afloat in the world. Built as a bulk cargo carrier under British flag during a shipbuilding boom inspired by increased trade with American ports, she was later sold to American owner, William Matson, and fitted for the Hawaiian trans-pacific sugar trade. In 1907 she was fitted out as a sailing oil tanker for Associated Oil Company until 1920. She was later down-rigged and towed to Ketchikan, Alaska where she served as a floating filling station for fishing vessels over the next thirty-seven years. Saved with the help of Hawaiian school children, Falls of Clyde is now exhibited at the Hawaii Maritime Center where she interprets maritime trade.
