Abstract: This bulletin was the first annual report of the Agricultural Extension Service at the University of Hawaii. The author placed the "beginning of agricultural extension in the Hawaiian islands with Captain Cook," and chronicled the other advancements in the field wrought by "the conscious, purposeful effort of governmental agencies...[and]...organized public educational institutions" prior to the establishment of the Extension Service. The main part of the report serves as a template and manifesto for the new agency, its programs and activities, and included a poem by the author ("A Boy with a Hoe--And a Vision," p. 23) and dedication of an Extension Hibiscus cultivar. Little attention was given to the accomplishments of the indigenous agriculturists, or to the conditions of societal disruption that necessitated the Extension interventions of the colonist authorities.
