Profile of Carl Damaso

Information about Filipino labor leader Carl Damaso of Hawaii.

Calixto Camesa was born in 1917 in the town of San Felipe in the Zambales Province of the Philippines.

He traveled to Hawaii in 1931, when he was only 14 years old, to work on one of Hawaii's sugar plantations. In 1934 he was one of the organizers of a Filipino sugar worker's strike at the Ola'a Plantation on the Big Island of Hawaii. After that incident he was not able to get a job on any of Hawaii's plantations. He traveled to Pu'unene, Maui and helped Antonio Fagel organize a Filipino worker's strike.

During World War II he worked at Pearl Harbor, and after the war he worked for Catle and Cooke as a stevedore. He joined the ILWU and he organized Filipino workers during the 1946 and 1949 sugar strikes in Hawaii. Between 1964 and 1981 he held the ILWU offices of Director of the Oahu Division and President of the Hawaii branch of the ILWU.

Calixto "Carl" Camesa died on January 26, 1990.
