Walter “Dutchy” Olsen - Family and friends have never heard anything negative about Walter “Dutchy” Olsen—known to acquaintances as “The Flying Dutchman”—and the opposite also was true. “Over the time I’ve known him, almost 45 years, I’ve never heard him say a bad word about anyone else,” said son-in-law Larry Johnson, Bank of Hawaii chief executive officer. “He’s probably the epitome of what you see is what you get.” Olsen, considered by many as “Mr. Baseball” from the mid-1930s to the late ‘40s, died suddenly at his Nuuanu Valley home Monday Jul 27, 1998. He was 84. Olsen made his name in baseball, from his late teens until his thirties. He played during World War II against the 7th Air Force All Stars, which included major leaguers Joe DiMaggio, Pee Wee Reese and Ferris Fain.  He played for three different teams—the Braves, Hawaiians and Wanderers in the Hawaii Baseball League—and ended up being general manager of the league for several years. He earned the nickname “The Flying Dutchman” while, as a Brave, he slid into a second baseman in an attempt to break up a double play. “He knew he was going to be thrown out, but he went head first into the second baseman and  broke his wrist,” Johnson said. “It didn’t bother him. It showed how competitive he was.” Olsen served as director of the old Honolulu Stadium and ran the concessions for many years. For 40 years, he was owner and operator of Mothers Food Products. He retired 15 years ago but remained active, golfing at the Oahu Country Club where he was a member. Olsen shot his age three different times, including a 73 at age 73. He also was a member of the Outrigger Canoe Club and past president of the Honolulu Quarterback Club. “Dutchy was happy-go-lucky, always cheerful and very gung-ho,” said Earl Galdeira, also a past president who credits Olsen with getting him to join the Quarterback Club. “I can still hear us guys laughing and stomping on the ground. He was just a great guy to be around with.” “If I brought you and he met you for the first time, he’d put his arm on your shoulder and say ‘Where have you been all my life?’”. Olsen grew up in Kalihi, the oldest of four children. His father was a blacksmith but died when Olsen was 15. As the oldest, he took responsibility for keeping the family together. He shined shoes, dove for coins off Pier 11 and hawked newspapers.  He met his wife, the former Mary Felix, at the old Princess Theater downtown and married her in 1937. They had been married 60 years. As a young boy, he would go to the old Central YMCA at Alakea and King Street, rent a locker and towel for 15 cents and spend the day there. One day a man offered him free membership for a year. Although he never learned the man’s identity, Olsen never forgot the man’s gesture and became a supporter of the YMCA—particularly for underprivileged kids who couldn’t afford a membership, Johnson said. The family requests no flowers. Instead, donations can be sent to  the Walter “Dutchy” Olsen Memorial Fund at the Nuuanu YMCA. Besides his wife, Olsen is survived by daughters Claire Johnson, Charlene Eveleth and Amelia Andrade; six grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Services: 9:30 a.m. tomorrow at St. Stephen Church, 2747 Pali Highway. Call after 9 a.m. Burial: 10:45 a.m. at Diamond Head Memorial Park.    [SB 30/07/1998]

Harry T. Oshima of Manoa, internationally known University of Hawaii professor of economics, died Sunday Mar 15, 1998. He was 80. He also was a fellow in the Economic Research Center at the University of Hawaii and East-West Center in 1968-71. “He was one of the first economists to specialize in national income,” said his wife, Chiye. “When he was with the United Nations, he helped develop the methodology of calculating national income. He was a protege of Simon Kuznets, who won a Nobel Prize in economics some years back.” During World War II, he served with the Office of Strategic Services in Washington, D.C., she said. Oshima contributed more than a hundred articles on economics to academic and professional journals and served in a number of editing capacities. One of his last articles, “The Role of Social Values in the Growth of Asian Economies,” appeared in the Journal of Asia Pacific Economies in 1996. His higher education began at the University of Hawaii, where he earned a bachelor’s in 1940. His early career included work in New York with the National Bureau of Economic Research and United Nations Statistical Office. Fascinated by Asian and Pacific Rim economies, he produced a dissertation on national income statistics of Asian countries while earning a Ph.D. in economics at Columbia in 1956. The thesis evaluated the accuracy and usefulness of the income data.  He found that small-scale family production for subsistence was the main characteristic of the postwar Asian economic structure with a system of exchange principally local rather than national. In the case of Japan, the most developed country in Asia, he found its income statistics the most reliable. He concluded the study with a number of suggestions how other Asian countries might improve the reliability of their income data. He was a lecturer and research associate at Stanford in years 1954-57 and assistant professor of economics at the University of Washington, 1957-59. He was a visiting research associate at a university in Tokyo, 1959-61, and economics professor at the University of Hawaii, 1961-73. His service included representative of the Rockefeller Foundation for the Philippines, 1972-83, and he was a recipient of a number of awards and grants. He spent time in research and teaching in Singapore in years 1966-69, also serving as consultant and senior fellow in the Economic Research Center at the University of Hawaii and East-West Center, 1968-71. In the early 1980s, he was a visiting professor in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines. In the 1990s, he was a visiting professor at the University of the Philippines and visiting fellow at the East-West Center. Oshima was born in Honolulu. Other survivors are sons Neal and Evin; sisters Doris Kasahara, Yoshie Ueki and Hisae Oshima, and three grandchildren. Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Hosoi Mortuary. Casual attire.

Vladimir Ossipoff, dean  has to be a bit of a sociologist, lawyer and psychologist. He has to know human nature.”  “Val was the dean of residential architects in Hawaii,” Linus Pauling Jr. said about Ossipoff, who died yesterday Oct 1, 1998 in Kuakini Hospital at age 90.  Ossipoff designed an award-winning Round Top home for Pauling in 1957.  “He had a remarkable skill in adapting his concept of space with the climate and Hawaii attitude toward living and people who were going to occupy the structure,” said Pauling, the son of the Nobel Prize-winning chemist.  “All the houses he's built are quite different in that way.”  Ossipoff-designed homes are very special.  In 1980, Star-Bulletin reporter Lois Taylor wrote that “Ossipoff is probably the only living local architect whose name shows up in real estate advertisements, where the cachet of ‘an Ossipoff house' jacks up the price.”  Ossipoff worked on the late Clare Boothe Luce's Kahala home and also designed the Pacific Club, Outrigger Canoe Club, Thurston Memorial Chapel at Punahou Schools, Hawaii Prep Academy, the University of Hawaii's administration building and the IBM building.  “He was a very direct yet extremely sensitive man with superb taste,” said architect Sidney Snyder, a business associate of Ossipoff's since 1973.  Ossipoff remained active as a consultant until this year, Snyder said.  “Val designed beautiful structures -- he had great style, great taste and a great ego,” David Eyre said of his longtime friend. “He could be charming and cantankerous, and I love him for all those qualities.”  Ossipoff enjoyed food and cooking and was a wine expert, says Pauling.  “His meals were considered a paragon of flavors and visual displays,” Pauling added.  “As a person, he tended to be gruff, straightforward and out spoken. But he was also bright and very curious about world situations. He gave us a lot of good things.”

Ossipoff, son of a Imperial Russian military officer, was born in Vladivostok on Nov. 25, 1907. He was raised in Japan and educated in Berkeley, Calif., where he attended high school and college.  Ossipoff came to Hawaii in the early 1930s and worked in the home building department of Theo H. Davies before going into private practice as an architect in 1935.  He is survived by his daughters, Alexandra and Valerie, and grandchildren.  Services are pending.
