, born in 1889, was a newspaper reporter, a fiction writer, and later an editor and article writer for Bishop Museum. She was an active member of the Honolulu Branch of NLAPW. After her death in 1979, her sons Lorin Tarr and Tom asked that donations to her memory be made to fund a contest "to stimulate, encourage, and/or reward excellence in creative writing, and in all fields of literary endeavor.Ē  This fund, which became the Lorin Tarr Gill Writing Competition, is administered by the Honolulu Pen Women Branch.
