Source: United States/Pacific Island Nations Joint Commercial Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce, 2006. ~ ~ ~ ~ The Arizona-based Robert Louis Stevenson Museum/Project Foundation was started by Rex Maughan, Dan Wakefield and Jim Winegar. About 1990, Maughan, Wakefield and Winegar formed the foundation in an effort to obtain, restore and preserve Stevenson's estate, Vailima, then owned by the Samoan government, and once used as the official residence of Samoa's head of state. Stevenson is well-known throughout the English-speaking world as the author of the adventure novels "Treasure Island," "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," and "Kidnapped." All three men, Maughan, Wakefield and Winegar are returned LDS missionaries who once served in Samoa, and who have repeatedly returned to assist the country. Maughan is well-known for his company, Forever Living Products, which has grown to become the third largest network marketing company, behind the giant Avon Products. In 1997 Maughan was listed among the Forbes 400 richest Americans, and his firm is still listed by Forbes as one of the 500 largest private companies. News reports indicate that all three provided assistance during hurricanes that hit Samoa in 1990 and 1991. They were also among a group of returned missionaries who helped BYU professor Paul A. Cox preserve 30,000 acres of rain forest near the village of Falealupo, on the Samoan island of Savai'i. For their efforts, the village Elders honored Maughan, Wakefield and Cox with high chief names. The government had on August 29, 1990, accepted the foundation's proposal to "restore and preserve the RLS Estate at Vailima." Preservationists call the restoration, completed in 1994, a success, and the estate is now home to the National Museum of Western Samoa and is one of the premier tourist destinations in the country.
