South Coast Orchid Society

Orchid Digest Corporation and Affiliated Societies Judging
1961

In addition to the difficulties encountered in earlier years, 1961 is notable for the smaller number of award photos that were published in Orchid Digest — only 51, plus two additional photographs published later in the ODC Awards List. The most likely explanation is that ODC was low on funds (at the time, publishing photographs was still expensive), or else the increased number of awards, articles, and advertisements took up more pages, and the cost of adding more pages was judged excessive.

There were a number of errors and omissions as well. Some awards were omitted from Orchid Digest but nevertheless appeared in the ODC Awards List. Venues for some events were not listed in Orchid Digest. Dates of a number of judging events were reported incorrectly in Orchid Digest.

Meanwhile, the ODC judging program continued to grow, reaching as far east as Shreveport, LA and Nashville, TN.

We found several examples where ODC and AOS award photos of the same plant differed slightly, and other examples where the ODC and AOS photos are apparently identical. In at least some cases (notably for Orchid Society of California, in Oakland), ODC and AOS had separate versions of the award photo.

Miltonia William Kirch 'Colette' AM/ODC, from Orchid Digest

Miltonia William Kirch 'Colette' AM/ODC 81.3 points, exhibited by Mr. and Mrs. Wes Carmichael. Not published in ODC Awards List, but possibly assigned ODC Award Number 1462 (inferred from the sequence of award numbers at this event) and either withdrawn or omitted in error.

Phalaenopsis erythroglossa 'Malibu' HCC/ODC 75.75 points, exhibited by Arthur Freed Orchids, Inc. ODC Award Number 1458?. Published in OSSC Review 3(9):13 (September, 1961). OSSC #837. Note: Exactly what this plant was is a mystery. We found no reference to such a species name in any genus that could possibly be related to Phalaenopsis. The award description says "Spike about 20" tall, upright as in Doritis and carrying many flowers of the Doritis type — but large. Flowers of red-purple color sepals and petals with bright red lip — very striking", no measurements given. Perhaps it was a polyploid cultivar of Doritis (now Phalaenopsis) pulcherrima?.

Published in OSSC Review 3(9):13 (September, 1961) shows "Dendrobium Concert 'Kamemoto' A.M. HOS" (presumably indicating a previous award from the Honolulu Orchid Society), OSSC #840, OSSC award HCC 77.5 points, exhibited by Mr. Chew Wong, Honolulu, HI. There is in fact an AOS award for this plant from this session, HCC/AOS 78 points (AOS Award Number 19610301), but the way this award has been reported by OSSC seems to imply that this should have been recognized as HCC/ODC as well.

Lc. Marie Ozzella 'Royal Velvet' HCC/ODC 76.3 points, exhibited by Worth Orchids. Lacks ODC award number. Published in OSSC Review 3(10) (October, 1961). OSSC #842.
