South Coast Orchid Society

AOS Awards at Southern California Sites
Other Than Long Beach
1963-1964

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 5, 1963, San Diego County Orchid Society Show, San Diego, CA:

Meritorious Display of Orchids in Use BM /AOS, exhibited by Flower Arrangers' Guild of San Diego, San Diego, CA. AOS Award Number not found. OrchidPro does not contain this award. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. IV 660, and in AOS Bulletin 32(9):740 (September, 1963).


Educational exhibit of orchid plants BMC/AOS 83 points, exhibited by Ilsley Orchids, Los Angeles, CA. AOS Award Number not found. OrchidPro does not contain this award. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. IV 660, and in AOS Bulletin 32(9):740 (September, 1963).

Cymbidium Lillian Stewart 'Coronation' AM/AOS, from Orchids

Cymbidium Lillian Stewart 'Coronation' AM/AOS 84 points, exhibited by Fred A. Stewart, Inc., San Gabriel, CA. AOS Award Number 19630178. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. IV 660, and in AOS Bulletin 32(9):740 (September, 1963). A likely candidate for the award photo (so far not confirmed, as all the dozens of award slides for Lillian Stewart in the Pacific South awards slide collection have been removed) is found in Orchids 78(3):147 (March, 2009), in an article about the orchids that have been most favored by AOS judges. As 'Coronation' has only been awarded once by AOS and once by CSA, both at the same show in San Diego, and since no other photo credit is listed, the attribution seems very likely. The published image seems to have been scanned from a very dusty original.


Cymbidium Acapulco 'Globe' HCC/AOS 76 points, exhibited by Dos Pueblos Orchid Co., Goleta, CA. AOS Award Number 19630179. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. IV 660, and in AOS Bulletin 32(9):741 (September, 1963).

Lc. Memoria Walter L. Armacost 'The Don' HCC/AOS 78 points, exhibited by Armacost & Royston, West Los Angeles, CA. AOS Award Number 19630189. OrchidPro lacks usable information . Published in Register of Awards Suppl. IV 661, and in AOS Bulletin 32(9):741 (September, 1963). The hybrid is now correctly Cattleya Walter Armacost, without the middle initial.

December 9, 1963, Regional Monthly Judging, Hollywood, CA:

Rlc. Pamela Farrell 'Malibu' AM/AOS, from OrchidPro

Blc. Pamela Farrell 'Malibu' AM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by Arthur Freed Orchids, Inc., Malibu, CA. AOS Award Number 19630442. OrchidPro (as Rlc. Pamela Farrell) lacks usable information, but has color photo. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. IV 702, and in AOS Bulletin 33(6):506 (June, 1964). The image in OrchidPro turns out to have been edited. The original version, including part of a plant label obliterated in OrchidPro, was published in AOS Bulletin 53(11):1140 (November, 1984), but with very different color.

Rlc. Pamela Farrell 'Malibu' AM/AOS, from AOS Bulletin


Cattleya Horace 'Maximum' HCC/AOS 78 points, exhibited by Arthur Freed Orchids, Inc., Malibu, CA. AOS Award Number 19630443. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. IV 702, and in AOS Bulletin 33(6):506 (June, 1964). The cultivar name should probably be 'Maxima', of which numerous photos are known. However, 'Maxima' received an AM/AOS (81 points) in 1966, and another AM/AOS in 2008 (when the point score was increased to 82), so award photos of this cultivar published after 1966 are expected to be from the AM/AOS awards, rather than the earlier HCC/AOS. In 1963, the potential of Cattleya Horace, registered by the Flandria nursery (Bruges, Belgium) in 1938, was little known, with only 11 offspring registered in the years 1951 through 1960. After Maxima's awards, at least 290 more Horace hybrids have been registered, the latest in 2022. Horace became the go-to parent for big, full Cattleyas, for its "perfect" flower shape and overall habit.

However, we found a pair of photos in OrchidWiz (images #272720 and #272719), contributed by Rod Shoesmith, that cite the HCC/AOS award (the exhibitor not listed), composed in a way that recalls the old award photos, and with the same tonal range, including the slightly bluish foliage. However, other details argue that these photos are far more recent. As there is no description for the HCC/AOS award (descriptions for HCC awards were not published until about 1964, and were not even required until 1965), we have no information about how many flowers and buds were present on the plant awarded in 1963.


Cattleya Laurie Lynn Westenberger 'Tebati' HCC/AOS 76 points, exhibited by Mrs. Ednah Tye, Encino, CA. AOS Award Number 19630444. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. IV 702, and in AOS Bulletin 33(6):506 (June, 1964).

Cattleya Portiana 'Malibu' HCC/AOS 76 points, exhibited by Arthur Freed Orchids, Inc., Malibu, CA. AOS Award Number 19630452. OrchidPro lacks usable information. Published in Register of Awards Suppl. V 704, and in AOS Bulletin 34(3):254 (March, 1965). Now correctly Cattlianthe Portiana, this hybrid is the backcross of Cattlianthe Portia to its Guarianthe bowringiana parent; the backcross to the other parent, Cattleya labiata, is the similarly named Cattlianthe Portiata.


[Two awards attributed to Regional Monthly Judging in Hollywood, CA are found at the top of page 703 in the Register of Awards (Suppl. IV), following the awards from Hollywood for December 9, 1963 on page 702. These awards are 19630450 (Slc. Charlotte K. Hodsdon 'Fannie' HCC/AOS 79 points, exhibited by George C. Hunter Jr., Tallahassee, FL) and 19630451 (Vanda Jenni Hashimoto 'Viola' HCC/AOS 79 points, exhibited by Mr. and Mrs. Ted Smith, Fort Lauderdale, FL). They are found in the AOS Bulletin 33(3):232 (March, 1964) with the correct information, that they were awarded at Regional Monthly Judging in Miami, FL on December 11, 1963. This error seems never to have been noticed before.]
