Virtual American Biographies - Reuben Tinker http://famousamericans.net/reubentinker/ TINKER, Reuben, clergyman, born in Chester, Massachusetts, 6 August, 1799; died in Westfield, Chautauqua County, New York, 26 October, 1854. He entered a mercantile house in his native town in 1813, but afterward entered Amherst and was graduated in 1827, having supported himself during his college career by teaching and manual labor. He became a student in Auburn theological seminary the same year, and was ordained a minister of the Presbyterian church at Chester in 1830. Resolving to devote himself to foreign missions, he sailed for the Sandwich islands in December, 1830, and reached Honolulu on 28 June, 1831. He was chaplain for seamen at Lahaina until June, 1832, when he went with other missionaries on an exploring expedition to the Marquesas islands, with the view to founding missions. In 1834 he was appointed to edit a semimonthly religious journal in the native language, which he did up to 1838. In 1840 he returned to the United States, where he had charge of a congregation in Madison, Ohio, for four years, and then of one in Westfield, New York, till his death.

"Ka Mooolelo Hawaii: Hawaiian History Written by Scholars at the High School." Hawaiian Spectator 2:58-77, 211-231, 334-340,438-446 Reuben Tinker - publisher http://ulukau.org/elib/cgi-bin/library?e=p-0nhawlbr-000Sec--11en-50-20-frameset-book--1-010escapewin&a=d&toc=0&d=D0.8&cl=&er= The Missionary Herald described Ke Kumu Hawaii thus: The Kumu Hawaii is a small newspaper, in the Hawaiian language edited by Mr. Tinker and printed at the mission press in Honolulu. It furnishes a vehicle for conveying to the natives much important information on religious and other subjects, awakens thought and feeling, and presents a strong inducement to the more intelligent and enterprising among them to improve their own minds and exert an influence over their countrymen, by writing. May 3, 1836 Mr. Tinker writes: The Kumu Hawaii is used to some extent in schools, and read more or less at their houses, as other books are read by such people. Natives write more and more for it, and we hope it may prove more and more useful as their intelligence increases and also our skill in adapting it to their wants ( Missionary Herald 1837:72-73). Reuben Tinker, 1799-1854, attended Amherst College and Auburn Theological Seminary, and was in the Fourth Company arriving in Honolulu in 1831. He served in Honolulu, Lahaina, Maui, the Mar quesas, and Wailuku, Maui. He was editor of Ke Kuinu Hawaii until 1838 ( Missionary Album 192), and also edited Ke Kumu Kamalii 1837, a publication for children. He was at first ? about the success of Ke Kumu Hawaii but in a short time had to double the number of 1 copies. The paper consisted of a single sheet containing subjects for moral and general instruction, local intelligence and traditional songs of the islands, with wood cuts of public buildings in Europe, foreign animals and other objects calculated to excite curiosity in the native mind. Later, coverage of foreign news was added. The paper served the dual purpose of pro viding reading material for the schools and presenting in an effective manner the views of the missionaries upon religious and moral questions. Ke Kumu Hawaii represented the broad aim of the Mission to create a nation that was not only Christian in name and spirit but also intelligent and industrious (Bradley 369-370). In June 1838, dissatisfied with what he considered the despotic policy of the Prudential Committee of the American Board, especially in regard to the rigid censorship of everything written by the missionaries for publication, either in the islands or the United States, Tinker severed his connection with the Board and returned to America in 1840 (The Friend October 1907:11). KUMU HAWAII (KE) The Hawaiian Teacher. November 12, 1834 - May 22, 1839. Honolulu. Mission Press. Semi-monthly in Hawaiian. Editor: Rev. Reuben Tinker. The mission has commenced a semi-monthly newspaper called Ke Kumu Hawaii or "The Hawaiian Teacher". Such a publication was suggested by the committee and the mission adopted the following resolution: ---That the periodical press may be advantageously employed in the Sandwich Islands to exhibit truth in an attractive form before the eyes of several thousand readers; to open the sources and supply the means of useful knowledge in the arts and sciences, history, morals, and religion: to point out existing evils, their character, seat, extent and consequences, their causes and the remedy, to make a newly and partially instructed people acquainted with the results of the experiences and discoveries of past generations; and with the success of defeat of the enterprizes of the passing age; to supply deficiencies in the books printed, and to elucidate by various methods of simple and figurative language, diagrams, engravings, etc., every sub ject brought before the people, from the simplest elements of knowledge to the highest points of instruction aimed at by the mission (American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, 1834, 83-84). The Ke Kumu (flambeau, professor) a newspaper published in Hawaiian by the missionaries, contains nothing but the notices of the arrival and sailing of vessels, and extracts from religious works (The Friend, September 1, 1850, 66). Paper seen at Hawaiian Historical Society Library. KUMU KAMALII (KE) January, 1837 - December, 1837. Honolulu. Mission Press. Monthly in Hawaiian. Periodical for youths. Editor: Reuben Tinker. (The Hawaiian Spectator 93.) A monthly publication of twelve pages called Kumu, Kamali designed especially for children was commenced a year ago (American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, 1837, 100). In 1837 appeared a little Sunday school paper Ke Kumu Kamalii with several children’s hymns (Damon, Na Himeni Hawaii, 21). Paper seen at Sinclair Library.
