James Drummond Dole
Birth: Sep. 27, 1877
Jamaica Plain
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: May 20, 1958
Maui County
Hawaii, USA

The "Pineapple King" of Hawaii. Dole came to Hawaii in 1899, and purchased 61 acres of land in Wahiawa, Oahu. The establishment of his first plantation marked the beginning of the Hawaiian pineapple industry. In 1907 it was moved to Honolulu for business reasons, and stayed in operation until 1991. He would later purchase the island of Lanai and convert it from a dry, sparsely inhabited island to the largest pineapple plantation anywhere in the world. At one time, Lanai supported 75% of the world's pinapple supplies. The 'Dole' brand is now one of the most recognized brands in the world today. Inscribed on his gravestone are the words, "He was a Man, Take Him All in All. I Shall Not Look Upon His Like Again." Sanford Ballard Dole, who took part in the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom, was his cousin. (bio by: Mongoose)
