David Fullaway was the son of William H. Fullaway and Emily Timmins. He served in the Spanish American War; graduated from Stanford University and was the state entomologist for Hawaii. His collections are found in the Essig Museum of Entomology (University of California, Berkely) and at the Smithsonian.
From the Oakland Tribune (Oakland California) May 25 1933:
"The celebrities arriving on the Mariposa yesterday included David T. Fullaway, famous Honolulu entomologist who is always dashing to some strange and little-known part of the world hunting for parasites to kill Hawaii's sugar ..."
Note from his granddaughter:
"my grandfather .. was particularly known for studies on the mosquito/malaria which helped the medical world during the Spanish America war where he served in the Philippines. He found a bug that took care of the cactus needles for the Parker Ranch on their cattle ranches on the Island of Hawaii. He could speak and read both Japanese and Chinese and he did somehow solve a problem they had in the rice fields. He found a bug to take care of the rice beetle that was devastating their rice fields. In 1976 it was quite fun to take my 4 children to the Smithsonian Natural History museum where they have stored bugs my grandfather collected as well as his published books and papers. My children were impressed."
