On Her Own Terms

This chapter studies the love Alexander had for Hawaii, and the effect the Second World War had on the activities of Alexander and Kellogg. It describes the women's usual annual cycle of activity, and states that they spent most of the war tending to their farm business. The next section tells of Alexander's visit to Martha and John Waterhouse, who lived in Honolulu. Aside from visiting her relatives, Alexander spent her time exploring the surrounding area. She also collected and acquired several specimens from Hawaii. The discussion then takes another shift, this time towards the cool attitude some of Alexander's family members—especially her brother, Wallace—showed toward Kellogg. The chapter ends with a section on Warren Herb Wagner, a young naval officer who was familiar with much of the flora in Hawaii. Alexander funded his study on the status of Hawaiian ferns, while she and Kellogg focused on gathering representative floral samples from regions in California.
