FOREWORD 




N PRESENTING "Men of Hawaii" to the public 
- a public considerably wider than the bounds of 
the Territory - - its editors and publishers have a two- 
fold purpose. 

First, the book is a standard reference work, compre- 
hensive, complete and authoritative. It is a publication compiled 
with a care and a system of collecting information which in- 
sures its accuracy and insures also that justice is done to its 
subject. It is a reference volume presenting biographically 
pertinent facts about the men of Hawaii who lead in their 
respective fields. In general these fields are the business or 
commercial, the professional, the educational, the religious and 
the scientific - - covering all activities which in Hawaii have 
brought its men to the front as potent and constructive factors 
in their communities. 

Secondly, the book is a series of milestones of achieve- 
ments. It has been truly said that the progress of any gener- 
ation, of any century, of any country, of any nation may be 
measured by the biographies of its men. In Hawaii this is 
true today as in ancient Greece, medieval Rome, modern 
France, or England, or the mainland United States. 

Hawaii is a modem American community with its roots 
far back in the past. Here the primitive life of Polynesia has 
been moulded and modified by the influx of many races, bloods 
and languages. Here the zeal for public service, for moral 
enlightenment, of the New England churchman has brought a 
missionary influence which nearly a century back paved the 
way for the outside world of trade and commerce, of educa- 
tion, of latter-day customs, manners and facilities. The mission 
ships of the '20's of the last century pioneered a pathway across 
the Pacific followed by the whalers of restless industry, and 



later the steamers of many nations cleaved the summer seas on 
their way to and from the island ports. With varying ex- 
periences, Hawaii developed industrially under a monarchical 
form of government, with the new populations - - American, 
English, German, French and the like - - fusing into the very 
blood of the country. 

Industrially and socially, the progress of Hawaii has been 
amazing. In a century it has leaped from a more than 
medieval obscurity and isolation into an intensively organized, 
modernly-equipped American commonwealth, the most nearly 
self-governing of all territories, with cities and towns, every 
public utility, a high degree of popular education, an active 
part as an integral member of the American political family. 
Its raw sugar industry - - the backbone of commerce - - is the 
world's model in efficiency of production. It is a community 
of schools, churches, homes, factories, agriculture, street cars, 
electric lights, chambers of commerce and boards of trade, 
up-to-date newspapers, paved roads, great hotels - in fact, 
it is a twentieth century American community. 

Here social service and intelligent philanthropy go hand 
in hand with highly organized industry. The traditions of 
unselfish usefulness brought with the earliest white residents 
remain, translated into terms of a later era. The most striking 
political development of this present generation - - the transition 
from a monarchy to an American territory has been also 
the most striking period of growth in widely varied forms of 
social service. 

The men whose portraits and biographies make up this 
book are the men whose activities and influence have brought 
about this great and permanent change in the Hawaii of the 
past fifty years. Some of them - - many of them - - are sons 
of Hawaii, born in the Islands, perhaps with fathers and grand- 
fathers born here. Others have come from elsewhere, adding 
new blood, adding energy and ideas. 

"Kamaama" or "mahhini" oldtimer or newcomer each 
is doing his part in the Hawaii of today.
