Remembering Gail Bartholomew Ainsworth

Mutual Publishing remembers Gail Bartholomew Ainsworth, who passed away on February 21, 2020.  She was a librarian, historian, author and friend.

She co-authored the book “Maui Remembers: A Local History” with Bren Bailey, which we had the privilege of publishing in 1994.  This book was the winner of an “Historic Education Preservation Award” and continues to teach locals and visitors to this day about the proud history of this beautiful island.

She also collaborated with Tylun Pang on “What Maui Likes to Eat,” published in 2010.    Here, she shared numerous stories and vintage photographs of Maui restaurants, menus, people and more.

We will miss our dear friend, who is now one whom we will always remember.  We give her family our condolences.
