As an interim step, HPU President Chatt Wright and the Board of Trustees have renamed the current HPU theater the Paul and Vi Loo Theatre to recognize their generosity. The theater has been renovated and will open in time for the start of the 2006-07 theatrical season with The Lion in Winter, Nov. 10.

More than 40 years ago, Paul C.T. Loo joined three other prominent and public-spirited citizens (Eureka Forbes, Elizabeth W. Kellerman, and the Rev. Edmond Walker) in applying for a charter of incorporation for a not-for-profit corporation to be called Hawai‘i Pacific College. The state of Hawai‘i granted the charter Sept. 17, 1965.

Today, Loo is HPU’s only surviving founder, and he currently serves as a member of HPU’s Board of Trustees. He is also the founder of HPU’s annual Paul C.T. Loo Distinguished Alumni Awards Banquet and a recipient of HPU’s Fellow of the Pacific Award, the University’s highest honor, in 2001.
