Could someone please provide some intel on this gentleman:

Oswald Kallunki AKA Clifford Charles Wright, born Nov 19th 1919 in Seattle, Washington, US

Parents: Arvid Kallunki & Edith Pekkanen

Foster parents: Charles P. Wright & Bertha May Hill

Attended Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle 1938

Married to Elsa Gress


I have NO reason to think otherwise, but since this is WikiTree, it would be nice if we could actually prove that Oswald Kallunki and Clifford Charles Wright are one and the same person.

the few sources I found don't necessarily prove that the two are one and the same, nor disprove.
