His other hand is holding several objects including a towel(?) and is resting on his hip. He is wearing a very tight shirt and spandex-like shorts. He was one of the 30 founders of the Los Angeles Athletic Club. He later became a cement contractor. In 1929, he and Maurice Hellman were the only surviving members of the first club.
