South Coast Orchid Society

AOS Awards at Southern California Sites
Other Than Long Beach
1959-1960

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.

Blc. Harlequin 'Act I' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by B. O. Bracey Co., Santa Ana, CA. AOS Award Number 19590329. OrchidPro (as Rlc. Harlequin (1939), but should be Rlc. Harlequin (1960)! — the parentage Lc. Memoria Albert Heinecke × Blc. Nugget is included in the Register of Awards and in numerous subsequent mentions) lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. II 345, and in AOS Bulletin 29(2):131 (February, 1960). There are numerous references to this cultivar under different spellings: Act I, Act 1, Act. 1, Act # 1, and quite possibly Act II. There are several photos in OrchidWiz, one of which, image #55342, attributed to Steve McNerney and listing the correct award and grower, might possibly be the award photo. However, this image, while carefully posed, was taken in a greenhouse, not in Hollywood. Therefore, we examined the various photos published in the AOS Bulletin. The most popular one (not a match with image #55342 in OrchidWiz), provided by the B. O. Bracey Co., was featured on the cover of the AOS Bulletin 30(1) (January, 1961), but by then the same cultivar had received AM/AOS and AM/ODC, and had been vigorously marketed until sold out.

Cattleya Falcon 'Alexanderi' FCC/AOS, from Orchids

Slc. Falcon 'Alexanderi' FCC/AOS 90 points, exhibited by Arthur E. Falk, Fullerton, CA. AOS Award Number 19600034. OrchidPro (as Cattleya Falcon (1917)) lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. III 396, with notation that this cultivar had previously received an FCC/RHS, and in AOS Bulletin 29(6):458 (June, 1960). There are many illustrations of this cultivar (and a rumor that all examples are infected with a virus), but it has been difficult to be sure which of them might be from the official award photo. Eventually, we found a fairly clear attribution in the most recent illustration, in a photo in Orchids 63(3):39 (January, 2009), where the award and exhibitor are listed, FCC/AOS, and Arthur Falk. This photo is the same one Courtney Hackney used in American Cattleyas (2004, plate G-45, from Roy Field via Norito Hasegawa). Both of these show a closeup of a single flower, with parts of two other flowers in the background. Were they cropped from a larger photo of the entire FCC/AOS awarded plant, which has also been published at least twice (AOS Bulletin 41(11):967 (November, 1972) and 46(1):15 (January, 1977))? Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the case, even though the photo published in 1972 and 1977 has the look of an award photo from the 1960's. We show here the 2009 version from Orchids, but it may be possible to locate a copy of the award slide.

Cymbidium Maxine 'Noma' AM/AOS, from OrchidWiz

Cymbidium Maxine 'Noma' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by John W. Baumgartner, Encinitas, CA. AOS Award Number 19600115. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. III 406, and in AOS Bulletin 29(6):459 (June, 1960). We think we have found the appropriate award photo, correctly naming the show and the exhibitor, but showing the award incorrectly as HCC instead of AM, in AOS Bulletin 29(11):819 (November, 1960), even though the same plant was awarded a Bronze Medal by the Cymbidium Society of America at the same show, because the photo from CSA also exists (OrchidWiz image #80621), and it shows a different flower.

Cymbidium Balkis 'Compacta' HCC/AOS 77 points, exhibited by Dos Pueblos Orchid Co., Goleta, CA. AOS Award Number 19600117. OrchidPro lacks usable information, but has color photo. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. III 406, and in AOS Bulletin 29(6):460 (June, 1960). The color photo in OrchidPro turns out to be a color version of the award photo (published in the Register and in the AOS Bulletin) for a later award for the same cultivar, AM/AOS, at the San Diego County Orchid Society Show, April 6, 1961. The color photo needs to be moved from award 19600117 to award 19610214.
