SAMUEL P. KING 1916-2010

Samuel Pailthorpe King, a federal judge for nearly four decades who distinguished the courtroom with his wit and wisdom and who co-authored the "Broken Trust" essay that helped transform Bishop Estate, died yesterday at Kuakini Medical Center.

Born in China on April 13, 1916, when his father was a Navy gunboat captain stationed there, King lost his left eye as a child, but never let that hold him back, graduating from Punahou School and receiving undergraduate and law degrees from Yale University. He then received a waiver to serve in the Navy as a Japanese translator during World War II.
