Two Emmas, a deep love of Hawaiʻi’s people and places: Queen Emma and Emma Dillingham
Join Jennifer Larsen Morrow, a Board Director for the Daughters and great great granddaughter of Regent Emma Louise Smith Dillingham, as she explores the parallels of Queen Emma and the Daughters’ first Regent. Her research has revealed many historic details of interest, as Emma Dillingham was a contemporary of Queen Emma—they were only 8 years apart. Learn more about these two women who were steadfast in their commitment to civic duty and serving the people of Hawaiʻi throughout their lifetimes.
Meet Our Guest Speaker
Daughter of Hawai‘i Board Director, Jennifer Larsen Morrow, born in Pāhala, Hawaiʻi, is descended from two long-time kamaʻāina families. Her maternal great great grandmother is Emma Louise Smith Dillingham, and her paternal great great grandfather is George Lucas, who arrived in 1856 and founded Lucas Planing Mill. The Lucas carpentry business provided cabinets and finish work for ʻIolani Palace and built the Moana Hotel.
The Larsen family lived on the Island of Hawaiʻi, moved to Lānaʻi and then Oʻahu, before being moved to the mainland in 1967 by Dole/Castle and Cooke. After high school in Portland, Oregon, Jennifer attended business school in Hawaiʻi, then returned to Oregon to train as a commercial artist. She established her freelance design business in 1976 and formed Creative Company in Salem, Oregon in 1978. The business grew and thrived and her company earned many awards for their work. She’s now living in Oregon wine country and is mostly retired, only managing a few clients. The family still has many ties to the Islands and recently returned for a memorial trip to Oʻahu and Kauaʻi.
