      Isn't there a Twigg Smith that runs the Honolulu Advertiser now? Is he a
      relative too?

      Thanks indeed. His name was in fact, William Smith, but he was tall and
      skinny so was called "Twigg". As an artist, he thought that Smith was too
      generic so he changed his name to Twigg-Smith . He was an accomplished
      landscape painter, photographer, second flutist and a founder of the
      Honolulu Symphony, served in WWI (as you noted), and worked for the Hawaii
      Sugar Planners Association for many years. Sadly, he died in 1950 so I never
      got to meet him. He was, by my mother's account, one of the nicest people
      she ever new.

      I have 30 of his paintings and am always looking for more. We also have
      about 25000 photos of his which have never been published. Am working on
      that though, someday.

      Aloha, Michael
