Senator Hiram Bingham of Connecticut
Jan, 1925
Hiram Bingham (1875 - 1956) was a United States Senator representing Connecticut. Bingham, who was born in Hawaii, worked to prevent Congress from using the Massie situation to pass legislation giving it much more control over Hawaii. He quickly introduced resolutions for investigation of Hawaii's administration and law enforcement. This resulted in the Richardson Report which Bingham used to introduce nine bills. None were passed into law because Hawaii promptly corrected the areas that were lax. Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, LC-DIG-npcc-12839.
