The caption reads: "Brother Joseph Dutton, the 'Saint of Molokai,' who has devoted forty years of his life to service among the lepers at Kalawao, Molokai. He was an aide of the staff of General Granger, U.S.A., during the Civil War."

    Humanitarian. American Civil War soldier who after a failed marriage and a bout of alcoholism, went as a lay brother to help Father Damien at the Molokai leper colony in 1886. He served there for more than 40 years. When commenting on his life he said the graph of his life represented "45 years down and 45 years up."
