Dr. George Jacob Augur

Dr. Augur, Disciple of ’Abdu’l-Baha was born in New Haven, Connecticut and educated at Yale University. In 1898 Dr. Augur and his wife Ruth and their son Morris moved to Hawaii. Sometime in 1909 the Augur’s became Bahá’ís.

In 1914 Dr. Augur became the first to pioneer in Japan. ‘Abdu’l-Baha wrote to him saying, “O thou herald of the Kingdom of God! … A thousand times bravo to thy high magnanimity and exalted aim!” Shoghi Effendi later elevated Dr. Augur to the rank of a Disciple of ‘Abdu’l-Baha.
