Hi, 'just saw this & thought I'd try to help ya out. The person to whom your query represents was my dad. Yes, as far as I know, he was born in Chicago. Dad passed away in 1971, and his father Henry (my Grandfather), a month later, while living with us.
Dad attended the University of Hawaii, as well.
Sorry so grim, but your question has been unanswered and that may be due to the length of time he's been gone, and the lack of any surviving family members. From what I know, I'm it !
