John Adams Kalahanauokalani Kalakaua Miles, 1917.

John A. K. K. Miles

In The Service of America

The picture above is of a Hawaiian boy who is working in the navy of America at St. Pedro Los Angeles as a secretary in the department of the payroll of the military.

The name of this Hawaiian youth is John Adams Kalahananokalani Kalakaua Miles, a child of Jennie K. Miles and the older brother of Legislator Willie E. Miles of this city.

He was born in Kohala, Hawaii, on the 16th of November, 1885, and therefore he will make 32 on the 16th of next month.

When he was but four years old, he was taken from Hawaii nei, and after working at various jobs, he joined the military of America. And today, we see that he is in the service in Los Angeles, where he resides.

[His name was given him it seems because he was born on the same day of the month as King Kalakaua.]
