This image, from Hollywood's honorary Mayor Johnny Grant, shows Capitol co-founder, and at that time president, Glenn Wallichs and Samuel Morse's grandaughter, Leila Morse, with an unknown gentleman throwing the switch to light the beacon on top of the tower to spell out H-O-L-L-Y-W-O-O-D in Morse code for the first time! If you can identify the 2nd gentleman, please leave a comment.
