While not as well known as others of Hawaii's Golden Age of architecture, Theodore Ted Vierra was in fact though, a true son of Hawaii. Born in Hilo to parents of Portuguese, Scottish and Hawaiian ancestry in 1902, Vierra attended Kamehameha Schools in Honolulu and graduated as class president in 1919. He then went on to the Cogswell Polytechnical College in San Francisco and after graduation at age 21, the local Hilo boy would undertake a fascinating journey lasting nearly 13 years; he won a highly prized scholarship to Harvard and had received instruction from Ecole De Beaux Arts of Paris. He also became a member of the architectural team at Bakewell & Brown, helping design the Pasadena City Hall and San Francisco Arts Institute, and had worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad Co., designing passenger and freight terminals. These achievements and experiences would serve as the foundation for an illustrious architectural career to follow.
