Robertson, George Humphreys


GEORGE HUMPHREYS ROBERTSON - 1854-1919  born and died in Hawaiian Islands
 
Second son of George Morison and Sarah Humphreys Robertson (of Huntly, Scotland), he differed from his older brother in that he was much more interested in  business. He was spoken of as the "business head" of the Robertson clan in Hawaii.
 
Born in a small cottage at the corner of Merchant and Alakea Streets, when that area was a residential part of old Honolulu.  He attended Punahou School, and even as a small boy started as a part-time employee of C. Brewer & Co., a firm with which he remained for almost 60 years.  He advanced in employment until he became vice president and manager.  C. Brewer & Co. were sugar factors and commission agents, the oldest American business institution west of the Rocky Mountains, established in 1826.
 
George married Caroline Hawea Boyd, member of a part-Hawaiian family prominent during the period of the Hawaiian monarchy.  Theirs was a rich family life and George was a devoted and indulgent parent to four daughters and one son.
