Synopsis:

Life in Hawaii is a brief overview of the life and times of Titus Coan (1801-1882), an extraordinary man who lived during the early days of the colonization of Hawaii. He was born and raised in rural Connecticut, graduated from Auburn Theological Seminary and was ordained in 1833. In 1834 he sailed with his new wife, Fidelia Church, to Hilo, where he was to remain and make his life’s work for the next 48 years.

After learning and mastering the Hawaiian language, he won the confidence of the Hawaiians and converted thousands to Christianity. He set up schools, as did his wife, and provided medical assistance and comfort to a rapidly changing culture. He later established churches and trained native converts to act as missionaries among their own people.

He traveled extensively, and at times with great peril, throughout his island home and later to the Marquesas Islands. His adventures and descriptions of first-time encounters with both the environment and the people are quite remarkable. This was a time of great excitement and great despair. Foreign interests in Hawaii, military engagements, visitors of renown, and Hawaiian Kings all provide a rather colorful backdrop against which his story is told.

In addition to his missionary labors, Titus Coan added a great deal to our knowledge of volcanic eruptions. He corresponded and worked with geologist James Dwight Dana, performed many observations, and published with the American Journal of Science. For decades he explored and recorded the volcanic activity on the island of Hawaii.

Titus Coan is perhaps best known for his books Adventures in Patagonia (1880) and Life in Hawaii (1882).

About the Author:

Titus Coan (1801-1882) was born in Connecticut and educated at East Guilford Academy. He graduated from Auburn Theological Seminary and received his ordination in 1833. He first traveled to the Argentine region of Patagonia for the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) and then, as missionary and explorer, he was part of the early colonization of Hawaii. He later made two voyages to the Marquesas Islands. His observations of volcanic activity on Hawaii have been published in the American Journal of Science. Among his most noted works are Adventures in Patagonia (1880) and Life in Hawaii (1882). He died in Hawaii.
