William DeWitt Alexander
Alexander was born in Honolulu April 2, 1833. His father was missionary William Patterson Alexander and mother Mary Ann (McKinney) Alexander. He graduated from Punahou School in 1849 and Yale in 1858. He returned to Hawaii and joined the faculty of Punahou School as a professor of Greek and history. He became the fourth president of Punahou (then called Oahu College) in the summer of 1864. On November 6, 1874 he was appointed to the Board of education of the Kingdom of Hawaii, and then in 1896 Commissioner of Public Instruction under the Republic of Hawaii. He is most known for his "A Brief History of the Hawaiian People," an extensive history used by the educational system of the Kingdom and later the Republic.
History Of The Later Years Of The Hawaiian Monarchy
And The Revolution Of 1893
Prof William DeWitt Alexander
Serino E. Bishop, Wallace R. Farrington
A very detailed history of later Hawaiian monarchs of the Kingdom of Hawaii (Lunalilo, Kalakaua and Liliuokalani) and extensive details on the events leading up to and establishing of the Republic of Hawaii. In many ways this book is a continuation of Alexander's "A Brief History Of The Hawaiian People" but covers in much more detail the transformation of Hawaii from a Monarchy to a Republic. Although some may find this book controversial, it is a very good source of details of the timeframe surrounding the overthrow of Queen Liliuokalani and the transition to becoming the Republic of Hawaii. There are many transcriptions of communications back and forth during and after the overthrow. This book is a must for those who are studying that time of transition. Originally published in 1896.
This edition has been produced using restored flowing text from an original and is NOT a "Scan Copy."
