Notes:

    
At the time these photographs were taken, Father Damien was not yet a saint.  

    In 1879, Father Damien established a home at Kalawao for boys and elderly men.  It also housed some women and              girls.  The Baldwin Home, which opened in May of 1894, replaced the Boys’ home built by Father Damien.  Mother                 Marianne Cope and the Sisters of Saint Francis managed the Baldwin home until they turned over jurisdiction to                 Joseph Dutton and the Sacred Hearts Brothers in 1895.  Therefore, Kalawao Settlement pictures show structures               built after Father Damien’s death.  

    Dr. Sidney Bourne Swift was the resident physician at Kalaupapa at the time of Father Damien’s death.
