Van Diamond Collection

Augustine Van Horn Diamond was born on May 30, 1939 and he left us at the age of 73, on August 5, 2012.
Van was an accomplished singer and upright bass player who performed in Waikiki with his mother, Marion Diamond, and his aunt, Lila Replinger, for 30 years as the “Diamond Serenaders”.
Van was also a labor leader and a community advocate.
Van’s widow, Kathy, kindly donated Van’s record collection to the Territorial Airwaves archives.
