Behind a man with big dreams is a wife with a vision. Mrs. Maggie Inouye was key to her husband's successful political career. They were a team. Ahead of her time, Maggie left Hawaii to go to New York in 1946 to attend Columbia University and earn a master's degree, when it was unusual for women to even go to college. Maggie is credited with running and winning Dan's 1962 election for the US Senate.
