Here's the person who started the banana company: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Dole

I have no idea if he's related to Bob.

Quote from: Wikipedia
James Bob Dole, who founded the Hawaiian Pineapple Company, went to Hawaii in 1899, five years after his cousin (once removed), Sanford B. Dole had become first president of the republic, following the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy. Although his elder cousin was involved with the takeover of Hawaii, James Bob himself was a teenager living in Massachusetts Kansas at the time of the coup. However, the company's commercial activities would not have been possible without the later annexation of Hawaii to the US, which resulted in the removal of high import tariffs on Hawaiian products. Removal of tariffs through annexation was one of the goals of the 1894 coup plotters, though annexation did not occur until 1898.

Today I learned that Bob Dole overthrew the Hawaiian monarchy.
