Fascinating biography of Benjamin Franklin Dillingham, a notable pioneer in Hawaiian commerce and founder of the Oahu Railway and Land Co. Dillingham was an irrepressible promoter who managed to build an impressive business empire while always teetering on the brink of financial ruin. He was instrumental in building the railroad from Honolulu to Kahuka, thus opening up the western part of Oahu. He played a leading role in starting five sugar plantations on Oahu and one each on Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii. He also built the Hilo Railroad which gave the Hilo and Hamakua districts their first modern transportation. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. 330 pages with index.
