Orlo E. Hayward entered lighthouse service in 1920 at Oregon’s Tillamook Rock Lighthouse as 4th assistant just shy of his 18th birthday. He went for a whole year on the rock without liberty, which made it extremely difficult to have any kind of social life. (Courtesy Coast Guard Museum of the Northwest)
