Duke donating time to make warm clothing, 1918.

In this picture is seen Duke P. Kahanamoku, the swimming champion of Hawaii nei making warm clothing in his spare time on the shore of Waikiki. The young girl watching him is named Miss Kathryn Jackson of Kalakaua Avenue who heard much of Kahanamoku going to make clothes, and she thus wanted to see it for herself.

  1. World War I was being fought in Europe, where the winters were very cold, and it was publicized that soldiers there needed socks for that reason. Fortunately for the USA, its troops were only in the war for the winter of 1917-1918 (the war having started in 1914), and it ended on Nov. 11, 1918.
