Elvenia J. Slosson Endowment for Ornamental Horticulture

Elvenia J. Slosson spent much of her life promoting the enhancement of landscapes, botanical gardens, arboreta, and the introduction and use of ornamental plants in beautifying highways and the landscape.

She founded and served as the first president of the California Garden Clubs and continually encouraged individuals and local groups to work for the enhancement of both public and private outdoor environments.

When Mrs. Slosson died in 1958, she left a gift in trust to the University of California to be used "for the advancement and promotion of the science and practice of horticulture, particularly including ornamental horticulture."

In 1970, the Regents of the University of California established the Elvenia J. Slosson Endowment Fund for the support of research and Extension education in ornamental horticulture. The annual income from the fund was assigned by the Office of the Vice President, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, to fund research and education projects by University researchers and staff. Research and education proposals were solicited annually and evaluated and selected through a competitive review process by an advisory committee consisting of representatives from University of California campuses, Cooperative Extension and the California Garden Clubs. The Advisory Committee recommended to the Office of the Vice President, DANR, those proposals it believed met the purposes of the fund and the quality expected by the University. Grants were awarded for one to three years, contingent upon satisfactory progress as judged by the Advisory Committee.

Severe budget shortfalls in 2009 forced the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources to redirect Slosson Endowment income to retain critical programs and personnel involved in ornamental horticulture education and outreach.

This website remains as an archive of the diverse research and educational projects undertaken in Mrs. Slosson's name that have deepened and broadened the people of California's knowledge of ornamental horticulture.

Frank J. (Skip) Slawson, 91, formerly of 21 Springate St., a salesman for 60 years with Bowers Brothers, Inc. until he retired in 1950, died yesterday in the Masonic Home.
Mr. Slawson became a familiar figure to Uticans and to people on his sales routes through the white flower that he wore on his lapel each day for 56 years. The custom began when he was making a sales call in Norwich and the late Edward F. Quinn, a florist there, stuck a carnation in his buttonhole. From then on, Mr. Slawson wore some kind of white flower each day.
Born in Whitesboro, he was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard F. Slawson. Slawson Sr. was an undertaker in Utica for many years.
He came with his family to Utica when he was eight and sold the old Saturday Globe to such prominent people as Senator roscoe Conkling, Thomas E. Kinney and Judge P.F. Bulger.
Mr. Slawson was active in athletics as a youth and played baseball with the Ninth Ward Regulars as catcher. He also played on the Utica Free Academy football team. He was graduated from that school in 1886, as one of the youngest members of his class.
Mr. Slawson had been associated with Bowers Brothers since the firm was established by the brothers at 219 Columbia St. It is now located on the Truck Route 5 A.
Mr. Slawson was also known as a speaker and writer on a variety of subjects.
He was a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church, Oriental Lodge. F & AM.
He married Marion E. Hyde in 1896, in Utica. She died in 1945.
He leaves a son Howard H. Slawson, New Hartford.
The funeral will be at 10 Monday from the Lankton, Townsend & Cronk Funeral Home, with the Rev. John U. Miller, pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church, officiating. Burial will be in Forest Hill Cemetery.
Calling hours are from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 today and tomorrow at the funeral home.

8883 Valdemar II (1170?1241), called Valdemar the Conqueror or Valdemar the Victorious (Valdemar Sejr), was the King of Denmark from 1202 until 1241. The nickname Sejr is a later invention and was not used during the King's own lifetime.

He was the second son of King Valdemar I and Sophia of Polotsk, a Varangian princess. In 1202, Valdemar II succeeded his childless elder brother Canute VI after serving him for years. He is counted among the greatest of medieval Danish kings. In 1204 he secured the recognition of Norway as a kingdom. In the 1210s he began to expand Danish influence in the crusade against the last remaining pagan tribes on the opposite shores of the Baltic Sea. His greatest achievement was the subjugation of the northern Estonians after the decisive Battle of Lyndanisse which took place near Lyndanisse (Tallinn) on June 15, 1219. According to legend a red cloth with a white cross fell from the sky during the battle, and from this day on that symbol, called the Dannebrog, has been the Danish flag.

Since 1912, June 15 has officially been called Valdemarsdag (Valdemar's Day). The date now belongs to the group of 33 Danish annual Flag Days where Dannebrog is raised in celebration.

Denmark was at the height of its power but in 1223 Valdemar was captured by his vassal, the Count of Schwerin, who released him in 1226 only on the condition that Valdemar gave up most of his conquests in north Germany.

In 1227 Valdemar invaded northern Germany in an attempt to regain his lost territories but was disastrously defeated in the Battle of Bornhˆved on (July 22, 1227). This defeat marked the end of Danish domination of the southern Baltic sea, but Estonia was preserved.

Valdemar spent the remainder of his life codifying the law which was completed shortly before his death - Code of Jutland (Jyske Lov, see also Codex Holmiensis).

By his brief first marriage to Margarethe of Bohemia, also known as Queen Dagmar, he had a son, Valdemar, whom he elevated as co-king, but who predeceased him.

After Margaret's death, Valdemar married Bereng·ria of Portugal, daughter of King Sancho I of Portugal. They had three sons, Eric IV of Denmark, Abel of Denmark, and Christopher I of Denmark, and a daughter, Sophie.

Valdemar's two queens play an outstanding role in Danish ballads and myths - Dagmar as the soft, pious and popular ideal wife and Bereng·ria as the beautiful and haughty woman ? but both versions are incapable of proof.

Before his first marriage Valdemar had been engaged to Rixa of Bavaria, daughter of the Duke of Saxony.

King Valdemar also had at least two bastard sons, Canute (Knud) whom he elevated as Duke of Reval (Estonia), Lolland, and Blekinge, born of a noblewoman, Helena Guttormsdotter, of Swedish birth and wife of an important Danish nobleman, and Nicolas (Niels) whom he elevated as Count of Halland.

Because of his position as ?the king of Dannebrog? and as a legislator, Valdemar enjoys a central position in Danish history. To posterity the civil wars and dissolution that followed his death made him appear to be the last king of a golden age.

8893 Very little can be discovered about him except that on June 12, 1672, he bought of Samuel Bennett thirty acres of land at Rumney Marsh; at that transaction his name was signed "Teague-a-barrow". At a later date, he is called "Teago Up Barrow". Again still later, "Tugo Barry"; in 1701, it is "Teago Berry" and in 1681, "Teago Up barrow". Again in 1687, it is "Teageo Bary" and in 1688, "Teago Barry". In 1695 the land was in the possession of "Thaddeus Barry", presumably his sonm showing that the father had probably died between 1688 and 1695. In a letter of William Jenks of Boston, to Alonzo Lewis, dated Jan. 8, 1844, and printed in the N.E. Reg., 9, pp. 201-209, in speaking of his grandfather, Capt. John Jenks, he says: "in 1720, he married his first wife, my grandmother, in chelsea. She was of a family that called themselves Berry, several of which English name was respectable in Lynn. But her family name was, in fact Barry, and the father of her father, Thaddeus, came from Ireland, a man in humble life. His son, Thomas, however, my great-grandfather, by a blessing on his good habits, was able at his decease to bequeath his daughter, Elizabeth, on hundred pounds."  BARRY, Teague (I82932)

Allan Slauson Newsman Here Since 1882

Allan B. Slauson, 79, veteran member of The Oregonian editorial department staff and one-time star reporter of this newspaper died in a Portland hospital Thursday night.

Born in Lysander, N.Y., Mr. Slauson attended Cornell university and first joined The Oregonian in 1882. He came to Portland from Denver, where he had gained his first newspaper experience. His firs position was that of proof reader and in recent years he served as inspiration for the "Old Copyreader" feature articles written for the editorial page by Ben Hur Lampman.

Mr. Slauson remained with The Oregonian until 1893, when he left for Washington, D.C., to become special correspondent for a syndicate. Soon after arrival in the national capital, he was appointed chief of the periodical division of the Congressional library and in 1905 was sent to Portland with the library exhibit for the Lewis and Clark fair.

His return to the northwest resulted in his resigning his library position and for a few years he engaged in the real estate business. In 1916 he again entered the newspaper profession, writing editorials for the old Portland Telegram, and a year later rejoined The Oregonian staff.

He covered many major assignments in his reportorial days and in recent years acted as exchange editor.

Mrs. Slauson died 17 years ago. Mr. Slauson leaves three daughters, Miss Jean Slauson, Oswego; Mrs. Henry Freeman, Portland, and Mrs. Malcolm Crowe, Burlingame, Cal.

8897 Victor Amadeus I (Italian: Vittorio Amedeo I di Savoia, May 8, 1587 ? October 7, 1637) was the Duke of Savoy from 1630 to 1637. He was also titular King of Cyprus and Jerusalem.

He was born in Turin to Charles Emmanuel I, Duke of Savoy and Catherine Micaela of Spain. He spent much of his childhood at the Spanish court in Madrid. When his brother prince Filippo Emanuele died, he became legitimate heir to the duchy and received the loyalty swore of the court at Racconigi on January 21, 1607.

After a crisis with relationships with Spain, he was married to Louis XIII of France's daughter Christine Marie.

Coat of Arms of the Dukes of Savoy after Victor Amadeus I.Victor Amadeus became Duke of Savoy after his father's death in 1630. Charles Emmanuel's policies had brought a great instability in the relationships with France and Spain, and troops were needed to defend the Duchy. As money was lacking to recruit mercenaries or train indigenous soldiers, Victor Amadeus signed a peace treaty with Spain. With the Treaty of Cherasco, Savoy was given back Pinerolo, although, according to a secret point of the agreement, that important stronghold was to remain to France in exchange of Geneve.

Subsequently, under the direction of Cardinal Richelieu, Victor Amadeus attempted to create an anti-Spanish league in Italy. In 1637 he crushed a Spanish army at battle of Mombaldone.

On September 25 of that year, Victor Amadeus fell ill after a dinner offered by the Duke of CrÈqui. Carried to Turin, he died here on October 7.

8898 Vincent emigrated to America,and is supposed to have been the progenitor of all of the names in the United States. Vincent and his family are first heard of at Plymouth, Mass., in 1637, and again at Weymouth, Massachusetts in 1639. They removed to Rehoboth, Mass., and about 1644 to New Haven, Connecticut. The group arrived in Hammonassett, East Guilford (now Madison) Conn. in 1654, where Vincent Built a house. There is a tradition that his was the first interment in Hammonassett Cemetery. From that day to the present time the name is synonymous in this country with public service, and many of the line have attained to eminence, with honors, both public and private. His wife died before his migration. MEIGS, Vincent (I39212)
