Kenneth S. Norris, former director of the Oceanic Institute at Makapuu, a pioneering dolphin researcher and a visionary scientist, died Sunday at the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco. He had turned 74 years old on Aug. 11, 1998. At an International Ethological Conference here three years ago, Norris was hailed as the dean of American cetologists - zoologists who study whales - by Lou Herman, director of the Kewalo Basin Marine Mammal Laboratory. Herman yesterday was shocked to learn of the death and said: “Ken Norris was a giant among those studying dolphins. His discoveries ran the whole gamut from dolphin sonar to dolphin societies.  “But Ken was more than a scientist. He was an incredible human being whom everyone respected and loved.” Norris was one of the founders and first president of the Marine Mammal Society, and taught some of today’s leading dolphin researchers, Herman said. “Ken was a role model for me, from the first time I met him at the Oceanic Institute in 1967.... He encouraged me in my own work with dolphins and helped me continue when things were difficult.” Norris directed the Oceanic Institute from 1961-1971 and then went to the University of California at Santa Cruz to establish a marine laboratory. He retired in Santa Cruz. He had had a triple bypass a few years ago and suffered problems recently with leaking valves, said his son-in-law, Fred Carlson. Carlson said most family members were with Norris throughout the night Saturday “singing to him as he slipped away. He loved music and taught his children many, many songs.” “He was a wonderful, wonderful man who affected so many people,” Carlson added. “It’s just amazing how many people were moved by him in deep ways.” Paul Nachtigall, head of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, said, “He was almost the father of our field.... He was a great man. He touched a lot of our lives.” An ecologist and zoologist, Norris studied dolphins for more than three decades, mostly in Hawaii. He wrote “Dolphin Days, The Life and Times of the Spinner Dolphin” and had finished a final revision of a new book, “Mountain Time.” A jazz fan, he said in a 1995 interview here that rhythm shapes the lives of the spinner dolphins he studied in the Big Island’s Kealakekua Bay. “It’s like tuning up an orchestra.... There is a great cluster of whistles as the school moves along.” Among his achievements, Norris helped draft the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 and spurred research to protect porpoises from tuna nets. He headed a panel of scientists and experts that met on Maui in 1979 and agreed that a whale sanctuary was needed to protect humpback whales. In 1994 he said it was “time to put our passions away” and support a controversial experiment to generate underwater sounds off Kauai and California to provide more information on global warming. Bill Friedl, director of the Center of Excellence for Research in Ocean Sciences at the Big Island’s Natural Energy Laboratory, said one of the greatest tributes to Norris “obviously is going to be the students that he mentored.” “If you looked at the tree that has come out of Ken Norris, it’s just filled with luminaries,” he said. Friedl said he was a University of Washington undergraduate student when he first met Norris, then teaching at the University of California, Los Angeles. He spent time with Norris in his lab during the 1964 summer break and was fascinated with his pioneering studies on dolphins’ ability to echo-locate and use biological sonar, he said. “He always considered himself to be a natural historian, not a marine mammalogist,” Friedl said. “The thing about him, he knew how to ask the right questions, so his work was always this leading-edge, exciting stuff.... It always went back to his grounding in nature.” One of Norris’ last professional projects was to help the University of California establish a reserve system with properties representing different habitats, his son-in-law said. While in the hospital, Norris learned the university received a substantial grant from the Packard Foundation to help acquire and set aside the land for research and student use, Carlson said. “That was one of the really crowning touches to his life.” Survivors include wife Phylly; daughters Barbara Gaskell, and Susan and Nancy Norris; and son Richard. The family’s home address is 1987 Smith Grade, Santa Cruz, CA 95060.

Leslie A. Nunes, 82, of Waialua, whose great-grandfather Manuel Nunes was one of five men credited with bringing the ukulele to Hawaii, died Dec. 16, 1998 in St. Francis Hospice. Among his efforts to preserve the ukulele legacy of his great-grandfather, Nunes arranged a centennial celebration in 1979, and a number of master ukulele players performed at the state Capitol and later at Waikiki Shell in celebration. His great-grandfather arrived in Hawaii from Madeira, Portugal, in 1879, opening a cabinet shop and producing a small, four-stringed Portuguese instrument, which came to be known as the ukulele - "jumping flea" in Hawaiian. The Nunes family tradition was not lost on latter-day ukulele maker Sam Kamaka, president of Kamaka Hawaii Inc. Kamaka recalled seeing his friend Leslie Nunes before Nunes went to Portugal earlier this year to honor the instrument where it originated. "He had a beautiful selection of instruments," Kamaka said. "He got me introduced to the history of the arrival of the original ukulele manufacturers."  In the 1980s, Kamaka invited Nunes to go along to music festivals on Maui. "We would put on a ukulele display," Kamaka recalled. "He (Nunes) came along to talk about the arrival of the ukulele through Manuel Nunes as part of the Nunes family, and we had several instruments on display made by Mr.  (Manuel) Nunes and his son." Leslie A. Nunes was born in Honolulu. In addition to his devotion to the ukulele lore, he was a retired electronics technician with the Federal Aviation Administration. Also, for 62 years, he was a ham radio operator with call letters KH6KB, known as Kanaka Boy to fellow ham operators. He also was an avid fisherman, fishing all over the world. Nunes is survived by wife Jean H.; daughter Dr. Ruth E. Heidrick; sons Leslie K. and Don B.; brother Dr. Aubrey J. Nunes; sister R. Estelle Sawyer; seven grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. Services are pending. The family requests no flowers, but suggests donations be made to St. Francis Hospice.
