Allen C. Wilcox Jr., a past chief executive of Alexander & Baldwin Inc., died Thursday Aug 7, 2003 at Kona Community Hospital. He was 84. Wilcox, a member of the kamaaina Wilcox family, was born in Lihue, Kauai, on Nov. 22, 1918, but spent much of his younger years in California, following his parents' divorce. He attended Stanford University, where he met his wife, Barbara. They married in 1944 in Arcadia, Calif., and several years later, Wilcox began longing to move back to Hawaii, Barbara Wilcox recalled yesterday in a phone interview. The two moved to Oahu, then to the Big Island, where they lived in Napoopoo, on Kealakekua Bay, for the past 30 years. Wilcox worked for the Hawaii Employers Council from 1961 to 1964, negotiating with unions, and he was chairman of the Honolulu Police Commission, Barbara Wilcox said. "He liked orderliness," she said. "He gained quite a reputation because his word was good." Wilcox joined the A&B board in 1963 and also served the next 15 years in several executive management positions, including president of Matson Navigation Co. and chief executive of A&B. He was elected chairman in 1972 and briefly served a second stint as interim chief executive following the departure of CEO Lawrence S. Pricher. Wilcox retired from the A&B board in April 1983. Wilcox was a founding member of Kona Community Hospital Foundation, something he was proud of, Barbara Wilcox said. He also worked for Family Support Services of West Hawaii, CrimeStoppers, the board of governors of Hawaii Preparatory Academy, Kona Outdoor Circle, the Leeward Planning Commission and the West Hawaii Humane Society. Wilcox is survived by his wife, sons Allen C. Wilcox III and Steven (Mavourneen) Wilcox, and daughter Anne Irene Wilcox; grandchildren Erin Martinchick, Samuel Mahelona Wilcox, Christopher Wilcox and Kauikeolani Wilcox, and others.

Jennie Napua Hanaiali'i Woodd, one of the original Royal Hawaiian Girls at the famed Pink Palace, the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki, and a Hollywood fixture in Hawaiian-themed movies of the 1940s and '50s, died Sunday Jan 5, 2003 in Kahului, Maui. She was 90.To Honolulans, Woodd was the beloved grandmother and longtime mentor of award-winning singer-composer Amy Hanaiali'i Gilliom. Gilliom recorded one of Woodd's compositions, "Hale'iwa Hula," and turned it into a signature tune, characterized by a powerful old-style falsetto and a trademark "auntie" sound from yesteryear, making Gilliom a winner of multiple Na Hoku Hanohano awards. The tune also reached a national audience in 2001 when it was performed by Gilliom in a cameo role with entertainer-brother Eric Gilliom in the comedy film "Tomcats." To a generation of old-time Hollywood movie and nightclub fans, Woodd was a veteran performer and choreographer, primarily known for a long list of feature films about Hawai'i in postwar and pre-statehood days, for which she staged hula production numbers at a time when the world was just beginning to discover the exotic call of a Pacific paradise. Woodd performed with the Ray Kinney group at the Hawaiian Room of New York's Lexington Hotel, as well as with "Sweet Leilani" composer Harry Owens, and she had wide exposure with Mainland fans. Woodd initially put the oomph and gallop into "The Cockeyed Mayor of Kaunakakai," a comedic hula and one of her trademark dances, well before it was adapted and adopted by Hilo Hattie, another Owens regular. Gilliom, who listed Woodd as one of the pivotal influences in her quest for stardom and ranking in the Hawaiian music hierarchy, has said that she would like to write a book about her versatile kupuna. Woodd's time on Moloka'i she was raised in Waialua Valley on the Friendly Island inspired Gilliom to buy property on Moloka'i, reconnecting with her 'ohana roots. Gilliom ventured to Moloka'i yesterday to search for specific wood that would be made into an urn for Grandma. Woodd was born April 3, 1912, in Waikele on O'ahu and spent time in the Hale'iwa area, which inspired the song about the North Shore locale. A kumu hula for 70 years, she led scores of halau in California in her heyday. In recent years, Woodd appeared with Gilliom in Hawaiian shows in Honolulu, including performances at the downtown Hawai'i Theatre. In addition to the singing Gillioms, Woodd is survived by her son, Lloyd Gilliom; daughter, Winona Lapilio; eight other grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her son, George Harris. Maui funeral services will be held Jan. 18 at Ballard Mortuary, with visitation from 5 to 8 p.m.; services at 6 p.m. Also, services will be held Jan. 25 at O'ahu Cemetery Chapel, with the same visitation and service times.

Robert M. Worth - Dr. Robert M. Worth's first job as a physician was at Kalaupapa, and it led to a reputation as internationally known expert on leprosy. It was as a scientist and humanitarian friend to his former patients that Worth pursued research in Hong Kong, Micronesia and New Guinea. His work played a critical role in getting the century-long quarantine in Hawaii lifted in 1969, allowing Hansen's disease patients to be treated on an outpatient basis. "When I became chief of the Communicable Disease Division, he sat down and gave the orientation, the whole story of Hansen's disease," said Dr. Mona Bomgaars, a Department of Health physician and former head of the Hansen's disease branch. "He was very active in trying to get the quarantine lifted." Worth, 78, who retired in 1985 after 22 years on the faculty of the University of Hawaii schools of Medicine and Public Health, died Thursday Jan 16, 2003 in Honolulu. He served as chief of the state Department of Health Communicable Disease Division from 1988-1992. "He was a pioneer in the public health field in Hawaii," said Dr. David Curb, principal investigator with the Honolulu Heart Program. The internationally known study has tracked the health and lifestyles of 8,006 men of Japanese ancestry in Hawaii, comparing with men in Japan and the mainland, the largest epidemiologic study of a minority population in America. "He was one of the people who developed the ideas and mechanisms for making it happen. At the time, most people didn't have the vision to see where it would go," said Curb. Both Curb and Bomgaars, on the UH faculty with Worth, applauded his role as a teacher. "He was instrumental in a lot of people's careers," said Curb. "He was a very honorable person who had students at heart," said Bomgaars. Worth was born in China, the child of a Presbyterian missionary family, and left as a teenager, only to return as a member of the U.S. Army Signal Corps. He earned degrees from the University of California-San Francisco and Harvard University School of Public Heath, and a doctorate in epidemiology from the University of California-Berkeley. Worth was chief scientist for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control's Agent Orange projects, supervising studies to detect connections between the herbicide and health problems of Vietnam War veterans. He served for years as a World Health Organization adviser on leprosy. Bomgaars said one particular research project should be remembered. "He and Dr. N.K. Shaw published the first epidemiology study of population of Nepal in about 1965. I used that book to help me understand Nepal," said Bomgaars, who worked there as a medical missionary with the Presbyterian Church for 15 years. "It is still a remarkable study." He and his wife, Annie Liu Worth, were married for 52 years. The survivors also include sons Brian M. and Jonathan L., sister Anna B., stepmother Hilda B. and stepsisters Lucy C. and Julia Worth Holley. A Quaker memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. March 1 at the Honolulu Friends Meeting House, 2426 Oahu Ave. The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Robert M. Worth Epidemiology Scholarship Fund, University of Hawaii Foundation, 1960 East-West Road, BioMed T-101, Honolulu 96822. [SB 18/01/2003]
