Catalogue Note

A fine study of Hawaiian male and female attire by Edward Bailey.  Bailey (1814–1903) and his wife Caroline sailed to Hawaii in 1836 with the Eighth Company of American missionaries.  They were at the Lahainaluna Seminary for the year 1839, before moving on to the Wailuku Female Seminary.  In addition to being a teacher and an artist, Bailey was also a sugar planter and miller, architect, bridge builder, musician and poet during his time in Hawaii.  The Baileys moved to California in 1855, where Bailey dies, the last male survivor of the workers sent by the Boston mission between 1820 and 1850.
