South Coast Orchid Society

AOS Awards at Southern California Sites
Other Than Long Beach
1950-1958

Awards conferred by the American Orchid Society through the end of 1968 were published as a normal, if sometimes irregular feature in the AOS Bulletin (punctuated by such "disruptions" as the AOS Secretary's "trip to the West Coast" in 1950, for example), but also in a separate Register of Awards (one volume plus supplements I through VI, paged continuously). During the same period, Orchid Digest Corporation, through its affiliated societies, conducted its own judging program in our area, but the records of the ODC awards are more difficult to compile and will be presented separately. The AOS awards listed here serve to fill out the story of orchids as a hobby and business in Southern California, and of the many people who participated in SCOS during its early years.

We were able to recover photos for many of the awards, although we found numerous discrepancies. Small black and white photos were sometimes published when the awards were announced in the AOS Bulletin, or in reports about shows where AOS judging had taken place. Later, these small photos were sometimes included in the Register of Awards. Larger photos of awarded plants, but not always the same photos, were included in articles in the Bulletin. Some color photos ultimately found their way into OrchidPro and the official AOS databases that preceded it, but we have encountered many awards where the color photo in OrchidPro does not match the black and white photos published at the time of the awards, and in any case, many of the earlier color photos, in the form of digital scans from old slides whose present location is unknown, are of very bad quality. As these photos were taken, 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. For the early award photos, it is very rare to find any mention of the photographers.

The various ways that color slides have faded, and presumably also the various ways that the old slides have been scanned and adjusted, has required some difficult choices. The most common issue is an overall blue tint in the OrchidPro images, which can be adjusted to some extent. In addition, some of the images have simply lost color, and benefit from adjusting the saturation. When it seems clear that the image is the correct award photo, the award description has served as a useful guide in assessing the image and in determining whether adjustments should be attempted. In these situations, however, we hope that further investigation will eventually lead to the original color slides and new scans with more current technology.

Absent evidence to the contrary, any black and white photos published along with the awards in the AOS Bulletin are presumed to be the "official" award photos. However, we found examples where the photos published later turn out to be different shots of the same flower, and thus taken at the same judging session. It is presently unknown whether multiple photos from the same award were sometimes submitted to AOS. In some cases, it may be that both versions were cropped from different parts of a single original color slide.



April 20, 1950, Southern California Spring Flower Show, Pasadena, CA:

An account of this show, under the heading Pasadena Flower Show, was featured in the AOS Bulletin 19(6):320-321 (June, 1950), with interesting details about the exhibits and awards.

Cymbidium Peri 'Ironclad' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Peri 'Ironclad' AM/AOS 86 points, exhibited by Armacost & Royston, West Los Angeles, CA. AOS Award Number 19500018. OrchidPro lacks description, measurements, and photo. Published in Register of Awards 72, and AOS Bulletin 19(7):377 (July, 1950). A photo of this plant from the exhibit was featured in the AOS Bulletin 20(5):258, along with an explanation of independent scoring by a team of AOS judges and another of Cymbidium Society of America (CSA) judges working independently, both teams arriving at an equivalent award, AM/AOS and SM/CSA.

Cymbidium Nam Khan 'Lita' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Nam Khan 'Lita' AM/AOS 85 points, exhibited by H. G. Ploger, La Jolla, CA. AOS Award Number 19500019. OrchidPro lacks description, measurements, and photo. Published in Register of Awards 72, and AOS Bulletin 19(7):377 (July, 1950). A black and white photograph of a spray from this cultivar was published in the AOS Bulletin 23(2):74, credited as "Kodachrome by H. G. Ploger", but it is not certain that this is the AOS award photo. It is, in any case, the awarded plant, photographed by its owner.


Cattleya Trail's End AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Lc. Trail's End (no cultivar name) AM/AOS 84 points, exhibited by Fred A. Stewart, San Gabriel, CA, and Joseph W. Urmston, San Marino, CA. AOS Award Number 19500020.

Rhyncholaeliocattleya Chief Joseph AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin — not an award photo, but worth including here!

Chief Joseph) lacks description, measurements, and photo. Published in Register of Awards 72, and AOS Bulletin 19(7):377 (July, 1950). Now correctly a Rhyncholaeliocattleya. This hybrid was part of the partnership of Joseph Urmston, of San Marino, CA, and Ralph Kiesewetter of Roslyn, Long Island, NY, which resulted in the famous "Controllable Cattleyas". A spectacular color photo, almost certainly by Valentino Sarra, was featured in some of their advertisements, e.g., AOS Bulletin 19(6):341 (June, 1950).


Cymbidium Bullfinch CCM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Bullfinch (no cultivar name) CCM/AOS 85 points, exhibited by Fred A. Stewart, San Gabriel, CA, and Joseph W. Urmston, San Marino, CA. AOS Award Number 19500024.

Blc. Iliad 'Goldenglo' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro

Blc. Iliad 'Goldenglo' AM/AOS 83 points, exhibited by Dr. Etta Gray, Hollywood, CA. AOS Award Number 19540001. OrchidPro lacks description and measurements but has photo. Published in Register of Awards 119, and in AOS Bulletin 23(5):333 (May, 1954) with black and white photo. Now correctly a Rhyncholaeliocattleya. The two photos appear to be shots of the same flower taken from slightly different angles.

Blc. Iliad 'Goldenglo' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cypripedium Bellringer 'Brocade' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by Fred A. Stewart, San Gabriel, CA. AOS Award Number 19540002. OrchidPro (as Paphiopedilum) lacks description, measurements, and photo.

Cymbidium Alexette 'Nina' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro

Cymbidium Alexette 'Nina' AM/AOS 84 points, exhibited by L. Sherman Adams Co., Wellesley, MA. AOS Award Number 19540041. OrchidPro lacks usable information but has photo. Published in Register of Awards 128, and in AOS Bulletin 23(9):607 (September, 1954) with black and white photo. The photo in OrchidPro certainly does not match the award description, "flowers Rhodamine purple with band on lip of darker hue", nor does it match the photo published with the award in the AOS Bulletin.

Cymbidium Alexette 'Nina' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin


Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Polly' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Polly' AM/AOS 81 points, exhibited by L. Sherman Adams Co., Wellesley, MA. AOS Award Number 19540042. OrchidPro lacks usable information but has photo. Published in Register of Awards 128, and in AOS Bulletin 23(9):607 (September, 1954) with black and white photo. The two photos are certainly not of the same flower, and the lips are very different. If the photo published with the award is correct, the one in OrchidPro must be a photo from some other award.

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Polly' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro, apparently a different plant


Cymbidium Jena Bailey 'La Jolla' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Jena Bailey 'La Jolla' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by Reynard Way Camellia and Orchid Gardens, San Diego, CA. AOS Award Number 19540043. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards 128, and in AOS Bulletin 23(9):607 (September, 1954) with black and white photo.

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Clifton Webb' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Clifton Webb' AM/AOS 82 points, exhibited by L. Sherman Adams Co., Wellesley, MA. AOS Award Number 19540046. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards 129, and in AOS Bulletin 23(7):470 (July, 1954) with black and white photo.


Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Lucy' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Lucy' AM/AOS 83 points, exhibited by L. Sherman Adams Co., Wellesley, MA. AOS Award Number 19540047. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards 129, and in AOS Bulletin 23(7):470 (July, 1954) with black and white photo.

April 12, 1954, OSSC, Los Angeles, CA:

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'The Queen' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'The Queen' AM/AOS 87 points, exhibited by L. Sherman Adams Co., Wellesley, MA. AOS Award Number 19540051. OrchidPro lacks usable information but has photo. Published in Register of Awards 130, and in AOS Bulletin 23(8):534 (August, 1954) with black and white photo. The photo from OrchidPro is quite unlike the award description, "a very fine form of light rose color, with darker rose on margins of petals and sepals; a fine rose line running in center of petals". Further, the way the photo is posed, and the quality of the image, are completely unlike the other images from this period at OSSC. The original award publication in the AOS Bulletin has a completely different image.

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'The Queen' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro, misidentified, clearly not the awarded plant


Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Magnolia' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Magnolia' AM/AOS 82 points, exhibited by L. Sherman Adams Co., Wellesley, MA. AOS Award Number 19540052. OrchidPro lacks usable information but has photo. Published in Register of Awards 130-131, and in AOS Bulletin 23(8):535 (August, 1954). The flowers are clearly not "deep rose", with "lighter rose" on the edges of the petals, as noted in the description, so this photo may be misidentified. It is to be compared with the previous award of March 27, 1953, award number 19530036, above.


Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Marietta' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Marietta' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by L. Sherman Adams Co., Wellesley, MA. AOS Award Number 19540053. OrchidPro lacks usable information but has photo. Published in Register of Awards 131, and in AOS Bulletin 23(8):535 (August, 1954) with black and white photo. Description says flowers should be "pearly white with flush on margins", and the lip with an irregular edge "margined with pink".

Cymbidium Alexfrida 'Marietta' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin


Cymbidium Cygnus 'Purity' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro

Cymbidium Cygnus 'Purity' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by Niven Orchid Co., Larkspur, CA. AOS Award Number 19540054. OrchidPro lacks usable information but has photo (photo is upsidedown, corrected here). Published in Register of Awards 131, and in AOS Bulletin 23(8):535 (August, 1954) with black and white photo. Description says that these are "pure white flowers except for scattered maroon dots on lip", consistent with the photo in OrchidPro. Both versions appear to be from the same original slide.

Cymbidium Cygnus 'Purity' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin


Cymbidium Cygnus 'White Wings AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cymbidium Cygnus 'White Wings AM/AOS 82 points, exhibited by Niven Orchid Co., Larkspur, CA. AOS Award Number 19540055. OrchidPro lacks usable information but has photo. Published in Register of Awards 131, and in AOS Bulletin 23(8):535 (August, 1954) with black and white photo. The photo from OrchidPro is not at all like the award description, which notes "white flowers with lip thickly dotted with maroon". The OrchidPro photo appears to be from a very different era and shows a different breeding, definitely not Cygnus.

Cymbidium Cygnus 'White Wings AM/AOS, from OrchidPro, misidentified, clearly not the awarded plant


Cymbidium Ethel Ward 'Sea Green' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro

Cymbidium Ethel Ward 'Sea Green' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by Niven Orchid Co., Larkspur, CA. AOS Award Number 19540056. OrchidPro lacks usable information but has photo. Published in Register of Awards 131, and in AOS Bulletin 23(8):535 (August, 1954) with black and white photo. Description: "flowers of heavy substance, good form and exotic coloring, light tint of green; lip has row of maroon dots through center and around edge", which matches well with the photo in OrchidPro. Both versions appear to be derived from the same original slide, showing the same flower.

Cymbidium Ethel Ward 'Sea Green' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin

Cattleya Bonanza (Bracey) 'Giant' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin 25(9):634

Lc. Bonanza 'Giant' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by B. O. Bracey Co., Santa Ana, CA. AOS Award Number 19560001. OrchidPro has incomplete information, lacks photo. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. I 179, with black and white photo, and in AOS Bulletin 25(9):634 with black and white photo (identical to the one published in the Register). A much better photo was published in AOS Bulletin 29(4):288 as part of an article on Laeliocattleya Bonanza in the series "Orchid Hall of Fame". The table of contents for that issue, as well as a citation in OrchidWiz, say that the two cultivars ('Giant' and 'Cornucopia') are shown in color, but the digitized version of this page on the AOS web site is in black and white. This photo, however, appears to be a different flower, and since the awarded plant had only a single flower, this photo probably comes from a different flowering. The photo credits in that issue indicate the photos of 'Giant' and 'Cornucopia' came from B. O. Bracey & Co., but that does not necessarily mean Bracey or one of his employees actually prepared the photograph.

I 186, with black and white photo, and in AOS Bulletin 25(10):713 (October, 1956) with black and white photo. Another photo, of much better quality, was published in the AOS Bulletin 29(1):41 (January, 1960), the photos on pp. 40-41 credited to "various" and to "AOS award files". However, it shows only a single flower that cannot be reconciled with the earlier award photo, and there were no other awards for this cultivar apart from the one reported here. This does not appear to be an award photo.

Bracey and Company, not indicating the award, which, of course, had not yet been officially published. This might be the award photo, but until an award slide is located, we have no way to be sure. There have been no other awards for this cultivar. The cultivar presumably originated at the Patterson and Sons nursery, Orchidhaven, in Bergenfield, NJ. A color photograph that we think may be be a different shot of the same flower appeared in Courtney T. Hackney's American Cattleyas (2004, plate G-25, source indicated as Roy Field — Roy would have had access to the award slides).

Published in Register of Awards Suppl. II 281, and in AOS Bulletin 27(9):613 (September, 1958). Now correctly a Rhyncholaeliocattleya.

Clearly, the photo, and its publication in January, 1958, predates any known award for this cultivar, so it is not the award photo.
