He obtained his professional teaching certificate from the university in 1958. In 1965, Carroll graduated from St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas with a law degree.
Carroll is most famous for having become tangled in a controversy over his lawsuit against the Office of Hawai'ian Affairs.
In 2002, he produced a memorable television commercial to defend himself. The ad began with Carroll greeting his viewers, "Aloha. I�m John Carroll, and in no way am I a racist."
Carroll said people have misunderstood his position on Hawai'ian issues, and pointed out he has three part-Hawai'ian children and 11 part-Hawai'ian grandchildren.
