As we know from the DA Files, in April, 1950, George Hodel was being “stalked by DA Lt. Frank Jemison” and an arrest was imminent.
Tipped by confederates, he left the country sometime in 1950, and accepted a job offer as, “Staff Psychiatrist and Director of Rehabilitation Program” at the Territorial Hospital Kaneohe, Hawaii. Part of his job description included counseling the criminally insane at Hawaii’s Territorial Prison.
During his several years in Hawaii, Dr. Hodel also taught a graduate course at the University of Hawaii’s, School of Social Work. Here is professor Hodel’s course description taken verbatim from a recently discovered copy of the 1951 catalogue:
310 Dynamics of Human Behavior (2) Mr. Hodell [sic]
Personality growth and development from infancy through old age. Interpretation of the individual’s behavior in the light of physical, psychological, and social factors which have contributed to his maladjustment.
