Ingram Macklin Stainback
Birth: May 12, 1883
Fayette County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Apr. 12, 1961
Honolulu County
Hawaii, USA

Territorial Governor. A well-connected Democrat, Stainback came to Hawaii shortly after he graduated from law school at the University of Chicago. He was appointed to the post of Teritorial Attorney General in 1914 but resigned in 1917 to enter the army. When World war I ended, he returned to private practice in Hawaii. During the 1930's, he was appointed United States District Attorney and judge on the U. S. District Court for the Territory of Hawaii. He became the Terrirorial Governor of Hawaii in 1942, but was relatively powerless because Hawaii was governed by the military until 1944. Stainback's full powers were restored on April 13, 1944 and he pushed for the lifting of martial law. He supported land reform and fought what he regarded as a communist plot to take over the islands. He resigned on May 8, 1951 having served the longest term as a Territorial Governor of Hawaii. Five months after his resignation, he was appointed by President Truman as an associate judge to the Hawaiian Supreme Court. He supported commonwealth status for Hawaii rather than statehood. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
