William Lowthian Green

He worked for his father’s company in Liverpool and as part of that sailed to Buenos Ayres.  He then joined the rush to California to try his luck finding gold (some of his friends were fortunate, there.)  He wasn’t.

Green’s health failed after some time in the goldfields and in 1850 he determined to go to China – he ended up in Honolulu and worked for Janion, Green & Co. But Green’s passion was not business, social or political. He “was fixed upon the working out of the geological theory of the conformation of the earth's crust.”
