South Coast Orchid Society

AOS Awards at Southern California Sites
Other Than Long Beach
1969-1970

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.

The earliest slides we have found so far in the Pacific South awards slide collection at the Huntington Botanical Center are from 1966.

Awards that require corrections in OrchidPro, or that are not found at all in OrchidPro, are indicated by a warning sign:

Paphiopedilum hirsutissimum 'Charles' HCC/AOS 78 points, exhibited by Emerson W. Charles, Costa Mesa, CA. AOS Award Number 19690323. OrchidPro has complete information, but lacks photo. Published in Awards Quarterly 1(1):38 (January, 1970), and in AOS Bulletin 38(12):1088 (December, 1969). What appears to be the award photo (matching the award description of four flowers on four stems) appears in an article by Gordon W. Dillon, "Photographing Orchids in Color", in AOS Bulletin 39(9):820 (September, 1970). The article indicates its illustrations are from "fine award slides taken by several photographers who excel in the art of orchid photography", but this particular photo is credited only to "A.O.S. Awards file". Unfortunately, the award slide, which might have yielded a much better scan, was not found in the Pacific South awards slide collection.


Paphiopedilum Mariano Martin 'Don' HCC/AOS 75 points, exhibited by Armacost & Royston, Inc., West Los Angeles, CA. AOS Award Number 19690324. OrchidPro has complete information, but lacks photo. Published in Awards Quarterly 1(1):38 (January, 1970), and in AOS Bulletin 38(12):1088 (December, 1969). OrchidWiz has an image of the same flower by CSA, and the cultivar associated with the CSA award is called 'The Don', more likely correct.


Paphiopedilum Sunol 'St. Rex' HCC/AOS

Award files", according to the photo credits in the same issue) was used to illustrated an article about "Growing Vanda Orchids in the North", AOS Bulletin 40(9):781 (September, 1971). However, the color is likely to be much too intense, as the award description incidates "a light strawberry color" with "oxblood lip".


Epidendrum atropurpureum 'Melrose' CCM/AOS 83 points, exhibited by Byron H. Geer, San Diego, CA. AOS Award Number 19690330. OrchidPro has complete information, but lacks photo.

Rlc. Green Giant 'Green Cynosure' HCC/AOS, from AOS Bulletin 43(9):805

Blc. Green Giant 'Green Cynosure' HCC/AOS 75 points, exhibited by Fred A. Stewart, Inc., San Gabriel, CA. AOS Award Number 19690470. OrchidPro has complete information, but lacks photo. Published in Awards Quarterly 1(2):58 (April, 1970), and in AOS Bulletin 39(2):155 (February, 1970). Now correctly a Rhyncholaeliocattleya. An article in the September, 1974 issue of the AOS Bulletin (43(9):802-810) by Douglas R. Allen of Fort Caroline Orchids, Jacksonville, FL, "In Quest of the Green Orchid", includes a number of illustrations of awarded green(-ish) Cattleyas, including one (p. 805) of Blc. Green Giant 'Green Cynosure' HCC/AOS that looks very much like an award photo. Unfortunately, there are no photo credits either in the article itself, nor in this issue of the Bulletin. Also, the color in many of these illustrations is far greener than our experience would suggest. Nevertheless, we think this is likely the actual award photo. There seems to have been no other award for this cultivar, and the flowers are described as "two lime-green ... flowers ... ; a green-gold lip with lavender brush", matching the image. The digitized version of this page on the AOS web site has badly cropped. We were not able to locate the award slide.

According to the award description, the flower should have "lime-green tepals; ivory-white lip with outer portion heavily marbled with carmine-red spots". We were able to adjust the image only slightly.

Guarianthe × laelioides alba 'Maya' CBM/AOS, from Awards Quarterly

Cattleya guatemalensis alba 'Maya' CBM/AOS 80 points, exhibited by Thomdel Collection, San Gabriel, CA. AOS Award Number 19700220. OrchidPro (as Guarianthe Guatemalensis (Alba) 'Maya', presumably indicating the artificial hybrid) has complete information but lacks photo and incorrectly lists the award date as April 8, 1970 (summary listing) and April 9, 1970 (details), and states that the event was the 15th Western Orchid Conference at Pasadena, CA. However, the actual 15th Western Orchid Conference was held at Sacramento, CA, and several awards from that show were published under the date April 9, 1970. Published in Awards Quarterly 1(4):110 (October, 1970) with black-and-white photo, and in AOS Bulletin 39(9):830 (September, 1970). The award as published both times uses a small g in the species name, indicating that it was regarded as the natural hybrid, then properly Cattley × guatemalensis, and now revised as Guarianthe × laelioides. The artificial hybrid (with the same parents, now Guarianthe skinneri × Guarianthe auriantiaca) is still, however, officially Guarianthe Guatemalensis, with a capital G.

But wait, there's more! As best we can determine, this plant was exhibited at San Diego, where it was judged on April 3, 1970, where it received a CBM/AOS award. Then it was exhibited at the Western Orchid Conference in Sacramento, where it was judged on April 9, 1970, receiving an HCC/AOS (award 19700484), for the same eight flowers on a single spike. The latter award was published in Awards Quarterly 2(1):5 (January, 1971). There is an excellent photograph in OrchidPro from the HCC award, but it is a closeup taken from a different angle and cannot be compared definitively with the very poor photograph from the CBM award. The confusion over the name continues: in OrchidPro, the CBM award (19700220) indicates the artificial hybrid Guatemalensis, while the HCC award (19700484 for the same plant and the same flowers) shows × laelioides, indicating the natural hybrid. As originally published in Awards Quarterly, however, both show guatemalensis with a small g, the natural hybrid.

April 10, 1970, 26th Santa Barbara International Orchid Show, Santa Barbara, CA

[Note: Almost all of the photos from this show that are now found in OrchidPro have faded to various pink tones, presumably because of the brand of color slide film that was used. A few do not show this effect, and we suppose those images came from duplicate slides that were made shortly after the show and which have not faded. We had hopes that the Pacific South award slides collection wwould have these duplicate slides, from which better images could be obtained. Unfortunately, none of these awards were found in that collection. It is still possible that better slides exist in other collections. OrchidPro also gives the date incorrectly as April 9, 1970 in the summary listing, but, correctly, as April 10, 1970 in the details.]

Cattleya purpurata "werkhauserii" 'Whitlow' HCC/AOS, new scan from Pacific South award slides

Laelia purpurata var. werkhauserii 'Whitlow' HCC/AOS 79 points, exhibited by Fred A. Stewart, Inc., San Gabriel, CA. AOS Award Number 19700493. OrchidPro lacks this record, and this award number is occupied by an award for Ascocenda (now Vanda) Darcy Starr 'Peggy' HCC/AOS, April 21, 1970, Oakland, CA, exhibited by John Arhontes, published as 19700493 in Awards Quarterly 2(4):93 (October, 1971). The species is now correctly known as Cattleya purpurata. The present award, for 'Whitlow', was Published in Awards Quarterly 2(1):12 (January, 1971), not yet located in the AOS Bulletin. Is this the true "werkhauserii"? The name was originally applied to just two wild-collected plants that remained in private hands until 1954 (see our blog entry on this topic, Orchids Today and Yesterday, May-June 2020). We strongly suspect that many "werkhauserii" plants are not descendants of the original plants, but are color forms that, with a bit of wishful thinking, fall within the "ardósia" color group (i.e., the color of Brazilian slate), even though they are closer to the "roxo-violeta" (also known regionally as "aço", steel-colored) color group.
