With: typed biography of the author, Walter Francis Dillingham, Hawaiian entrepreneur and statesman, known by some as "Mr Hawaii". Scarce; copies held only by Oregon and Honolulu libraries (WorldCat). Note: "Dillingham is also seen as controversial for comments which by today's standards would be considered racist after the Massie Trial of 1933, which resulted in the killing of a native Hawaiian and the beating of a Japanese Hawaiian by a mob of angry (and never-prosecuted) whites"
