Abstract: Helen Paul was the wife of Commander Carrol E. Paul an American Naval Officer stationed on Guam. Commander Paul was tasked with overseeing the Navy’s Public Works projects in the years from 1917 to 1919. Helen Paul was a teacher at the Guam Normal School where she trained a number of pioneering Chamorro educators and political leaders such as Agueda Johnson, Jose Rios, Simon Sanchez, and Maria Ulloa in a number of subjects that included Algebra, Arithmetic, Physiology, U.S. History and Grammar. Helen Paul is also known for creating a design for the Guam Flag which depicted a lone coconut palm on a beach at the old mouth of the Hagåtña River backed by the sea, a distant cliff and a flying proa. This flag made its first appearance on July 6, 1917. (DeLisle, 2008, p. 129) Bibliography DeLisle, C. T. (2008).
