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.
