Betsey Stockton

Among the many U.S. missionaries, there was a well-respected moral, civic and educational teacher for U.S. democracy in Hawaii named Betsey Stockton. These educational traditions for democracy are perhaps the inspiring precedents for some of President Obama’s early respect for promoting democracy.  Thus, Betsey Stockton’s history would be relevant and appropriate to a presidential museum in Hawaii.
