Alsoberry Kaumu Hanchett, Kauai boy, becomes a doctor, 1914.

ANOTHER KAUAI BOY MAKES GOOD

A. H. Hanchett who is a Lihue boy, born in a house on the site of the present bowling alley, will graduate from the medical department of Harvard at the end of this month and will, on July 1, enter upon his duties as interne of a great hospital at Providence, R. I. He stood an examination, with 56 others, for that place and came out first best.

Young Hanchett’s father still lives on Kauai, at Waimea; and he is a half brother of W. O. Crowell, of Waimea. Prior to leaving the Islands, he graduated from both Kamehameha school and Oahu College. He next took a four-years course in Harvard, graduating A. B.; after which he took up the medical course, which he is now about to complete.

It is Dr. Hanchett’s hope and present intention to return to the Islands as soon as his two-year term with the Providence hospital is completed.
