Breakers Hotel


Recommended Posts

A naval strategist of the highest order, Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, is likewise a supremely wise student of feminine psychology.

When the Breakers Hotel at Waikiki was opened as a recreation center for enlisted men, the Admiral put in an appearance, and permitted himself to be photographed dancing with an exceedingly comely brunette.

A few days later the picture was offered for his inspection and he readily and cheerfully approved it, for publicity purposes.

But, at the same time, he said, “I’ll take one, if you don’t mind.â€

The Admiral then wrote a brief communication, slipped it into an envelope along with the photograph and said to an assistant.

“Get this off to my wife right away, by air mail!â€

He was making sure that the first time she saw the picture, it would be from the right source.
