Louis Keouli Thompson (22 April 1882) better known by his stage name Segis Luvaun, was a Hawaiian singer and musician and the reported King of Ukulele Players.[1] Thompson, native to Hawai'i, claimed United States citizenship when Hawaii was annexed by the United States as a territory in 1898. He performed much of his life, first touring the United States and later throughout Scandinavia and Europe, many times for Royalty.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Louis Thompson was born in Honolulu in the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1882. The earliest known record of him is the 1900 census[2] showing him as a 17 year old student at the Kamehameha School, then known as the Kamehameha School for Boys. Indeed, Thompson is shown in the schools Class of 1900 class photo.[3] The 1900 census shows both his parents being from the Hawaiian Islands. A 1919 Visa application, filled out by Thompson, records his father's name as Keouli Tawmsen[4] and a 1916 Visa application indicated that his father was deceased at that time.[5] However, on the marriage license to Eveline Walters (shown below), indicates his father's name is 'Carlo Luvaun'.[6] No other information is known of his family.

Thompson married Mildred Elnora Rupp on 26 July 1910 in Chicago, Illinois.[7] At the time, Thompson went by Lu, with his full name on the marriage license recorded as Lu Kaoly Thompson. Rupp was born on 26 October 1893 in Winfield, Kansas.[8] Although Thompson was actually 28 and Rupp was 17 at the time, the marriage license shows them as 26 and 21, respectively. He and Rupp had one child, Billven Keouli Thompson, born 16 December 1911 in Topeka, Kansas. Billven is Thompson's only known child.

Sometime after marrying Rupp in 1910 and before leaving for Europe in 1914, Thompson married Moana.[6] Although little is known about Moana, including her maidian name, one might speculate that she was the inspiration behind Thompson's chart 'Moana Waltz'.

Thompson married Eveline Walters on 7 April 1917 in St. Giles, London, England. At this time, Thompson was 35 and Walters was 21.[6] She was born on 11 September 1896 in Somersetshire, England.[9] and her father's name was Gaius Walters[6]

Within three years (1903) of graduating from Kamehameha School for Boys, Thompson had already left his home land of Hawai'i for the main land of the United States.[3] He toured there for ten years before moving to London in 1914. In 1919, he moved to Copenhagen, Denmark. By 1922, he once again moved, this time to Prague, Czechoslovakia. His last known residence in Europe, per Visa applications, was Riga, Latvia. He remained in Europe until September 1936 when he returned to the United States sailing from Marseille to Boston.

Career[edit]

Much of Thompson's career has been gathered through newspaper ads and articles, as well as mention in books about the Hawaiian music movement at the time. According to Kamehameha School archives, Thompson had left for the United States main land by 1902 or 1903. Several articles show him touring in the United States as early as 1907 and as late as 1913. In his book How to Play the Ukulele, Thompson records that he was discovered in 1912 while touring in the United States by Sir Walter de Freece, who brought him to Europe. Tracking his travels through passport and visa applications, shows that he lived and performed in locations such as London, Oslo, Copenhagen, Holland, Germany and Switzerland from 1914 to 1931.

United States Tour (1902–1913)[edit]

Thompson was manager of a troupe called the Honolulu Students that he toured with across various venues within the United States. The stage name that he used while with the Honolulu Students is Professor Lu Thompson Keouli. During 1907 and 1908, Thompson, along with the Honolulu Students toured as part of the Chautauqua circuit[10]
