Dr. Brian Richardson, U H Manoa, will discuss The Journal of James Macrae, Botanist at the Sandwich Islands [sic] in the early 1820s. The Scottish botanist traveled to the Islands in 1824-25 primarily to return the bodies of Kin Kamehameha II (Liholiliho) and Queen Kamamalu), who had died of measles in Britain. The botanist traveled within the Islands, leaving a Journal. Dr. Richardson will summarize the voyage and highlight some of the most interesting passages from the Journal.
