Ray Lyman Wilbur, Secretary of the Interior
Sep, 1932
In the face of mainland hysteria about the situation in Hawaii, Wilbur, whose office was responsible for the civilian government in Hawaii, sent his executive assistant, William A. Du Puy to Hawaii to "observe the facts and report his findings." Du Puy reported his findings in a book titled "Hawaii and its Race Problem" which glossed over the race issues and the Ala Moana and Massie controversies. The full text of the book is available above. Wilbur was also the third President of Stanford University.
