Ida May Pope

Ida May Pope She was born in Crestline, Ohio July 30, 1862 to Dr William and Cornelia Waring Pope. She was the third child among seven. In August 1890, Miss Ida May Pope left for Honolulu to accept a position in the Kawaiahaʻo seminary. Then, on December 19 1894, the second stage of establishing the Kamehameha Schools was accomplished when the Kamehameha School for Girls was begun. Pope became the first principal of the school; she was a strong-minded, energetic Midwesterner who picked her own teachers; the first, like her, were all single women from the mainland.
