Item Description: Norfolk Press (2011)., (San Francisco):, 2011. First edition. One of 100 copies published primarily for the family. SIGNED by the author. Foster, a member of the family, writes a history of Walter Dillingham (1875-1963) who was born in Honolulu during the Kingdom of Hawaii. Walter's father, Benjamin Dillingham, founded the Oahu Railway and Land Company. His mother was Emma Louise Smith, daughter of missionary Lowell Smith, who arrived in Hawaii in 1830. Walter first worked as a clerk for his father, then managed the Dowsett Company and founded Hawaiian Dredging Company. In 1904, while his father was hospitalized, he managed the company. In 1909, he constructed a dry dock at Pearl Harbor which eventually became part of the US Navy base. He also enlarged the ports of Kahului and Hilo; drained the wetlands of Waikiki in the early 1920s; and created the Ala Wai Canal on whose banks the Hawaii Convention Center was built. In 1948, Dillingham Airfield, a small Air Force base near Mokuleia, Hawaii was named for Walter's son, Captain Henry Gaylord Dillingham, a B-29 pilot who was killed in action over Kawasaki, Japan, on July 25, 1945. In 1961, his son Lowell Smith Dillingham (1911-1987) merged the remains of the Oahu Railway and Land Company and the Hawaiian Dredging and Construction Company to form the Dillingham Corporation. It was sold to private investors in 1983. The book, for the first time, tells the story of this complex man, his forbearers and his family. Quoting such primary sources as his own letters and speches, the memories of others and the opinion of those who are still alive and knew him best. The history of the Dillingham family in many ways reflects the history of Hawaii. 405 pages, including 11 pages of notes to the text; a bibliography; list of personal interviews; and a chronology. Illustrated with family photographs. New in dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 52362
