Long before it was fashionable, Pritchett and Honolulu Weekly were taking a critical look at the Bishop Estate. In this 1992 drawing, which was used to illustrate an article by Desmond Byrne, trustee Henry Peters seems to say to a poor Hawaiian child, "Gee, we'd really like to help, but we just don't have the money." It was during this time the estate's assets and the trustees' salaries were climbing astronomically (well over $800,000 annually) but enrollment availability at the Kamehameha Schools remained at early 1960 levels. On December 13, 1999 Henry Peters was forced to resign as a Bishop Estate Trustee.  Honolulu Weekly cartoon 12/9/1992
