ABOUT THE BOOK:
This selection of letters from Charles Reed Bishop’s extensive collection is a rare treat. His views of every major situation relating to Hawaii and elsewhere makes for very interesting reading. Bishop arrived in the Hawaiian Islands as major changes had begun to sweep the island nation. No longer was it inhabited by “just natives” as had been the case less than fifty years previously. It had become a cosmopolitan hub of society resembling very closely the image of a small New England town. Bishop embraced these changes and in the years that followed he became centered in those ideals.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Charles Reed Bishop was born in New York in 1822, moved to Hawaii in his youth, married Princess Bernice, began a mercantile business, and eventually established the Kamehameha Schools in his wife’s memory after she passed away in 1884. He also founded the now world famous Bishop Museum, funding it with his own money. Bishop is regarded as Hawaii’s greatest philanthropist because of his many contributions and services to the islands. He died in 1915. He was 93.
