    I cannot help much but Arthur A. Chadwick makes brief mention of "the famous C. Bow Bells 'Honolulu'"in an article titled the Bow Bells Revolution.. I also know that this orchid was used in some of the early white orchids and C. Bow Bells 'Honolulu' has been around since at least the late 1950's, I could not find any awards or origin information. Of course, the history of C. Bow Bells and C. Bob Betts if fascinating with these two orchids being the most awarded whites in history.
