ARMSTRONG, Richard, missionary, born in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, 19 September 1805; died in Honolulu, Sandwich islands, 23 September 1860. He was graduated at Dickinson College, Pennsylvania, and, after a course of theology in Princeton seminary, went in 1832 to the Sandwich Islands. For eight months he was in charge of the mission at Nukahiva, in the Marquesas group; then went to Walluka, whence after five years he returned to Honolulu to take the station made vacant by the return of Mr. Bingham to the United States. In December 1847, the king made him minister of instruction and president of the board of education, and he was also appointed to a seat in the house of nobles, and to a membership in the Privy Council. His death was caused by the kick of a vicious horse.
