      Hi Cadia,

      Lewers was a professional actor who traveled quite a bit between
      Honolulu and the mainland. Me thinks he also had money as his father
      was Robert Lewers (of Lewers & Cooke, the Home Depot of its day.)

      Will took Don under his wing and got him his first job in Honolulu at
      the Advertiser. He also introduced him to the local theatrical circles.

      I own a signed photograph of Lewers on the front of a lobby card for
      Proctor's Albany Theatre, circa early 1900's.

      Sadly, Will killed himself in 1931.
