Five Squared

by George and 27-Across

This "early-week level" puzzle (15x16) was released on September 7, 2014, a date of particular significance to the puzzle's honoree (pictured to the right). After completing the puzzle (spoiler), learn more about its honoree by clicking here. This puzzle completes a quartet; the earlier ones are found here, here, and here. Update (Labor Day, 2015): In the year since the present puzzle was created, another momentous family event took place, as you can learn by clicking on this puzzle.

We thank Brent Hartzell, Martin Herbach, and Ellen Ross for test solving the puzzle on short notice, and also note that the future 60-Across-in-law of the puzzle's honoree signed off on it. Apologies for a couple of clues to short answer words that are in-jokes; at least the crossing words are fair.
