Inouye to marry head of AJA museum in May

U.S. Sen. Daniel K. Inouye has gotten engaged.

The Hawai'i Democrat announced in a statement yesterday that he is engaged to Irene Hirano, the president and chief executive officer of the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

The couple has set a May 24 wedding date for a private ceremony with immediate family at a church in Los Angeles.


Inouye, 83, was widowed in March 2006 when his wife, Margaret "Maggie" Shinobu Awamura Inouye, passed away from complications of colon cancer. They had been married nearly 57 years and have a son, Daniel Ken Inouye Jr.


Hirano has led the museum since 1988. She also leads the affiliated National Center for the Preservation of Democracy, which promotes civic education. She is also the chair of the American Association of Museums.

Hirano, who is about 60 years old, has bachelor's and master's degrees in public administration from the University of Southern California. She has worked for three decades in nonprofit administration, community education and public affairs.
