ANDREWS, Lorrin, missionary, born in East Windsor, Connecticut, 29 April 1795; died in Honolulu, Sandwich islands, 29 September 1868. He was educated at Jefferson College, Pennsylvania, and Princeton theological seminary; sailed for the Hawaiian Islands in November 1827, and preached at Lahaina. In 1831 he established Lahainaluna seminary, which subsequently became the Hawaii University, in which he was a professor for ten years. He translated a part of the Bible into Hawaii. Resigning his connection with the American board, in 1840, from anti-slavery scruples, he was for some time seamen's chaplain at Lahaina. In 1845 he was appointed judge under the Hawaiian government, and was also secretary of the Privy Council. These offices he held for ten years. He prepared a Hawaiian dictionary and several works on the literature and antiquities of the Hawaiians.
