Wishing Governor Ariyoshi a very happy 88th birthday today! It is his “beiju” celebration and we honor him today by highlighting footage of his 1978 inauguration as Governor (Gene Kois Collection, 1978.).
Gov. Ariyoshi served under Gov. John Burns from 1970 to 1973. He assumed the role as acting governor when Burns became ill. Ariyoshi served as the third Governor of Hawaii from 1974 to 1986.
