Dr. Richard E. Enos ’56

Dr. Richard “Dick” Enos ’56 was born on May 29, 1937, in Kalihi Valley on O`ahu, Territory of Hawai`i. The only child of Manuel and Marie Furtado Enos, Dick grew up on Gulick Street and attended Kapalama Elementary and Cathedral School before entering Punahou in 9th grade. At Punahou, he played intramural sports and admitted he “got into a lot of trouble.” However, he was grateful for everything that Punahou gave him.
Dick received a B.S. in Political Science from Colorado College, an M.A. in Social Work from the University of Denver, and Ph.D. in Social Work from the University of Utah. Among his many accomplishments, Dick served in West Germany as an Army intelligence officer, helped to develop the Social Welfare Department at Colorado State University, and was a professor of Social Work and Criminal Justice at the University of North Texas. His life’s work helped impoverished, abused, and emotionally disturbed women, children and adolescents. In honor of his parents and to help future students enjoy the same wonderful educational experience, Dick established this endowed financial aid fund.
