Kodama Orchid Nursery article in "Hawaii Japanese-American Pioneers"
This article on Mr. Takami Kodama, Ben's dad, was found in a booklet called "Hawaii Japanese-American Pioneers", published by The Hawaii Hochi as the newspaper's 100-year annyversary commemorate. It depicts how Mr. Kodama came to Hawaii from Hiroshima, and started his business in growing orchids. He was credited to enable orchid to become an affordable hobby.
