Senator Inouye Tours DSA Projects at NTBG

Senator Daniel Inouye, the most senior member of the U.S. Senate and the President Pro-Tempore, and his wife, Irene Hirano Inouye, President of the US-Japan Council, toured the completed Native Hawaiian Cultural Learning Center and the Juliet Rice Wichman Botanical Research Center on August 23, 2012. The Senator was responsible for National Tropical Botanical Garden's Congressional Charter in 1964 and the Federal Grant that funded construction of the new Learning Center. Chipper Wichman, Director and CEO of NTBG, led the visit as Dean Sakamoto added his insight to the design features of both projects. Jon Letman photo, courtesy NTBG
