Another Benaglia sighting

On a recent family vacation in Hawaii, we learned a little about the Father of Surfing, Duke Kahanamoku, whose athletic feats are worthy of epic poetry.  So impressed were we by his story that one of my daughters is working on a presentation about Duke for her second-and-third-grade classmates.

In researching his life further, we bought a book called Memories of Duke: The Legend Comes to Life, by Sandra Kimberley Hall and Greg Ambrose.  It's a wonderful recounting of the life of Kahanamoku, including his exploits wowing the early Honolulu tourists in the waters of Waikiki.  Among many splendid photos was this one, which brought a brought smile to our tax prof face:

"Unidentified man"?  Surely they jest.  To a true student of the U.S. income tax, he's anything but.
