- Oct 4, 2003Hi Cadia and everyone:

stuff, but have been hoping for more photos of Sawtelle. I was the last organist
at the Waikiki Theatre and have started this webpage as a personal
memorial...... <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/hilobayatos/WaikikiTheatre.html">WAIKIKI THEATRE</A> and included this info about <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/hilobayatos/Edwin_Sawtelle.html">Edwin Sawtelle</A>
