HAWAII IS PROUD OF THIS NATIVE HAWAIIAN
At the Medical School of Harvard University, a Hawaiian named A. Kaumu Hanchett is learning Medicine; in an examination of the medical students in Boston, in order to enter one of the Hospitals of the City, and from amongst a 100 students, the Hawaiian boy ranked 3rd, and because this Hawaiian Boy wanted to once again test his competence, his Medical abilities were tested once again at a big Hospital in Providence in the State of Rhode Island, and what was revealed in that examination was that amongst 50 students who took the test, to the Hawaii boy went “Number One.” He is a brother [hoahanau] of the Deputy Sheriff [Crowell] of the District of Waimea on Kauai, and he was a Classmate of the children of S. L. Desha at Kamehameha School and Punahou School, and he entered Harvard University with a son of Desha’s. This Hawaiian boy will graduate in this coming June, and will intern for two years at one of the Famous Hospitals of America to advance his abilities in the medical field, and at the completion of his stay at the Hospital, then he will select where he will practice his calling.
We hope that he will come back to Hawaii nei to practice this greatest of occupations in which he trained, and be the first Hawaiian to practice medicine in here in Hawaii.
