South Coast Orchid Society

Orchid Judging in Long Beach, 1954 and Beyond!

American Orchid Society Judging at Long Beach,

1979

We were able to recover photos for 94 of the 95 awards conferred by the Long Beach site. As the awards photos were created, as far as we know, as part of the AOS judging program and for the use of AOS and its judging program, the implied copyright, if any, should remain with AOS, and, as an AOS affiliated society, SCOS presents them here with that understanding. We would very much like to obtain a photo for the remaining award, possibly from collections of AOS award slides that were sent out to judging centers and affiliate societies over the years.

Overall, the digitized versions of the award photos, originally color slides, that are now shown in OrchidPro have two major defects: First, they are almost all too blue (this is especially obvious in the color of the foliage and the blue tint of any "green" flowers), and second, they are too pale, by comparison with the descriptions. Also, a few of the photos are very grainy and uneven, or have additional distortions of color. Further, in those cases where the same award slides have been contributed to OrchidWiz by individual judges or growers, the images are frequently mirror images, and are of excellent quality. It may be that when AOS digitized the slides, they were often scanned from the wrong side. Most of these faults could probably be corrected by new scans of the slides using modern equipment and software. One fault that cannot be corrected is the uneven illumination on many of the photos, resulting from poor placement of additional lamps on either side of the flowers in such a way that shadows were created.

AOS Award No. 19790638 Oncidium Tiger Talk 'Southlan', AM/AOS 85 points, John and Mary Rolley. Published in Awards Quarterly 11(4):170 (1980) with black and white photo. This hybrid was registered in 1974 as a Wilsonara, and is now correctly an Oncidium. Should the cultivar name be 'Southland'? That seems logical, but all published records say 'Southlan'. There are two award photos in OrchidPro; this is the second, a far better image.


Cymbidium Brook Street 'Featherhill' AM/AOS

AOS Award No. 19790639 Cymbidium Brook Street 'Featherhill', AM/AOS 83 points, Featherhill Exotic Plants. Published in Awards Quarterly 11(4):170 (1980) with black and white photo.

AOS Award No. 19790823 Rhyncholaeliocattleya Eve Marie Barnett 'Magnificent Watermelon Gold', HCC/AOS 77 points, P. G. Barnett. Published in Awards Quarterly 12(4):288 (1981) without a photo. This hybrid was registered in 1981 as a Brassolaeliocattleya, then in 2007 became briefly a Rhynchosophrocattleya until the transfer of Sophronitis into Cattleya, and now correctly Rhycholaeliocattleya. A much better version of the award photo, a mirror image, is found in OrchidWiz, image #117551, attributed to the Merritt Collection.

Cattleya loddigesii 'Bella Rosa' HCC/AOS

AOS Award No. 19790824 Cattleya loddigesii 'Bella Rosa', HCC/AOS 76 points, Fred A. Stewart, Inc. Published in Awards Quarterly 11(3):118 (1980) with black and white photo. The photo in OrchidPro has notable flaws in color and contrast; the award description says the color should be "iridescent rose-pink". A better version of the same image is found in OrchidWiz, image #55813, from the collection of Steve McNerney, with much better color, but the illumination resulted in some shadows.

Phalaenopsis Luedde-violacea 'Wayside' AM/AOS

AOS Award No. 19790902 Phalaenopsis Luedde-violacea 'Wayside', AM/AOS 83 points, Walter F. Bertsch. Published in Awards Quarterly 12(1):39-40 (1981) with large black and white photo, and also a smaller color photo on p. 35. Both are shown here adjusted to the same size. Unfortunately, the depth of field was extremely narrow in the award photo, so that only the surface of the sepals is properly in focus. The version in the OrchidPro database seems to have been adjusted for greater contrast. Which version is more life-like?

September 24, 1979:

Procycleya Neat Trick 'Summer Frost' HCC/AOS

AOS Award No. 19790996 Procycleya Neat Trick 'Summer Frost', HCC/AOS 78 points, Fred A. Stewart, Inc. This hybrid was originally registered in 1981 as an Epicattleya. Published in Awards Quarterly 12(4):288 (1981) without a photo.

Paphiopedilum liemianum 'Sierra Vista' AM/AOS

AOS Award No. 19791104 Paphiopedilum liemianum 'Sierra Vista', AM/AOS 82 points, Curtis and Sally Gean. Published in Awards Quarterly 12(1):64 (1981) with black and white photo, as Paph. chamberlainianum var. liemianum.


Vanda Bicentennial 'Amberstone' HCC/AOS

AOS Award No. 19791105 Vanda Bicentennial 'Amberstone', HCC/AOS 78 points, Dragonstone Orchids. This hybrid was registered in 1977 as an Ascocenda, and is now correctly a Vanda. Published in Awards Quarterly 12(1):64 (1981) with black and white photo. We strongly suspect the current photo in OrchidPro is badly faded; the award description says the sepals and petals are "buff yellow, tessellated with light melon", and the pedicels in the background should certainly be green or whitish rather than blue!


Oncidium Tigerman 'Burning Bright' HCC/AOS

AOS Award No. 19791107 Oncidium Tigerman 'Burning Bright', HCC/AOS 77 points, Featherhill Exotic Plants. This hybrid was registered in 1975 as a Wilsonara. Published in Awards Quarterly 12(1):64-65 (1981) with black and white photo.
