Alsoberry Kaumualiʻi Hanchett

Alsoberry Kaumualiʻi Hanchett “(T)o extend the influence of Harvard University in Hawaiʻi and to foster closer relations between the Harvard men in Hawaiʻi … that one boy be helped each year by a loan … AK Hanchett, a graduate of the Kamehameha Schools, now a senior in Oʻahu College, was chosen as the first recipient.” Born in Lihuʻe, Kauai, November 16, 1885, Alsoberry Kaumualiʻi Hanchett was the son of Salem Panole Hanchett and Julia Malaea (Palaile) Hanchett. He received an AB degree at Harvard University in 1911, and, continuing his studies in the medical college of the same institution, earned his MD degree in 1914 (the first person of Hawaiian ancestry to graduate from Harvard Medical College.)
