"The author of "Hawaii To-day" has made an enviable record as an officer in the Air Service and in his chosen specialty, Aerial Photography. He was publicly commended before troops and in orders for "services above and beyond the ordinary demands of duty" by Major General Charles P. Summerall, Department Commander. His flights on photographic missions have carried him to every section of the Islands. He made the first flight to Kilauea Volcano, the first flight by. Airplane to the Islands of Kahoolawe, Lanai, Niihau, and Kaula Rock, and still holds the record as the only man to have visited all the islands of the group by airplane. His studies in connection with his work eminently fit him for the task he has completed, and his work is heartily recommended to those interested in our island territory." (Surfresearch website)
