Henry Charles Sloggett was a medical doctor. He first visited the Islands in 1875 while travelling on the Challenger Expedition (a British circumnavigation of the world, studying the deep sea and distribution of life at different depths.) Yearning to return and live in the Islands, the Sloggetts came to the Islands in about 1895.
A lasting legacy of (son) Henry Digby and Lucy Etta Wilcox Sloggett is Camp Sloggett in Kokeʻe on Kauai. It started as a family mountain retreat for hiking, horseback riding and relaxation. The Sloggett children maintained the camp for their own use. They later transferred the Camp to the YWCA.
