In Memoriam Mrs. Frederick M. Lockwood Died May 9, 1977

It can be said of Hazel Marshall Lockwood that, like Shakespeare's Beatrice, 'a star danced and under it she was born.' Wit, a lively imagination, a quick eye for the incongruous and the ridiculous, and a gift of laughter were her outward marks, but underlying all was her love of people, of all people – children, the very old, someone in trouble, the stranger down the street – she reached out to everybody and drew them to her and never thought of herself.

So whatever Hazel Lockwood was asked to do, she did, and did it not only cheerfully, but outstandingly well, for she was also an organizer and a leader. Joining the Garden Club in 1952, she was immediately made a member of the Board and became president in very short time, serving from 1956 to '58. Her executive ability also made her an excellent fund-raiser and her imaginative turn of mind provided that touch of difference that insured success to the events.

She new instinctively that serious business does not demand a solemn face, and her most serious reports still had room for a joke. It was Hazel, of course, who dreamed up the idea and then wrote the Zone meeting skit that showed in hilarious light the agonies we had let ourselves suffer in preparing for the meeting. She was also actress in it.

Indeed, Hazel Lockwood had many gifts and she contributed to the club in many different ways, but her greatest contribution was that of her own gay and gallant spirit. The memory of it is her legacy to us all.

Introduction in Rhyme of Skit for Garden Club Meeting May 1956 by Marge Elliott
To see the handwritten pages, see 1956 Archives


Introduction

Imagine that you are our garden club
type here the powers that be
What things go on in a garden club
you'll be surprised to see

The cast are famous actresses
All brought at great expense
So please be kind to others, my friends
Lest they should take offense.

The President's name is Hazel
And its Lockwood thats for sure
She presides as "to-the-manner-born"
But her arrangements they are poor.

Elizabeth King of Programs She's
all fluttering, cooing and coy.
To find the right speaker for just the right day
Is her constant delight and her joy.

Page 2

Ways and Means Chairman is Shirley
Bernhart we're meaning of course
She's breathless, naive and appealing
But hasn't the sense of a horse.

Marrion Loizeaux is chairman
of membership looks la-de-da
But don't let that big hat delude you
She's a great one for making faux pas.

Fanny Day has charge of the minutes
Madame Secretary no less
But I must in confidence tell you
All her reports are a mess.

Hiely that's Polly the Treasurer
Does weird things to the books
She was never good at her figures
And so for the balance gad - zooks!

Hospitality chairman is Barbara
Sandford's the rest of her name
She's very smart but sarcastic
the "country tweed type" is this dame.

Conservation is Anne Marie Seybold
She is a lady who knows what is what
She has no time for the frivilous
In her ways she's terribly sot.

Alice Mooney our wonderful speaker
Rosa Bunda she has quite a past
And now you know all that you need to
about our illustrious cast.

So please let the music be quiet
I see the house lights are low
Put on the fools and the spotlights
All right curtain ready? Let's go

Skit prepared for the 1970 Garden Club of America Zone IV Meeting
Hazel is Mrs. Hazel Lockwood
Meechi is Mrs. Meechi Loosli

SKIT GIVEN AT DINNER MEETING OF ZONE IV

Scene: Two gals, each talking into a telephone

Voice over Public Address:
Ladies and Gentelmen, your attention please. We now take you behind the scenes of a Zone Meeting.

Hazel: You've got to be kidding. We couldn't possibly do it. We haven't got the faciliites. We've lost all our beautiful old homes. No one has any gardeners.

Meechi: Gardeners! Heavens, at that time of year we don't even have any gardens, and, you know, you get awfully tired of bittersweet arrangements.

Hazel: And dried leaves.

Meechi: We know all that, but does the GCA? Anyway, say it's our turn; we just can't go on forever going to everyone else's meetings.

Hazel: This is ghastly. Listen, I have an idea! My husband's cousin is a director. I'll see if she can square the whole thing.

Meechi: I'd just like to know how.

Hazel: Well, she could tell them we're prone to epidemics of . . . .

Meechi: Geriatrics!

Hazel: Well, yes!

Meechi: Never underestimated the power of the GCA Just engage some extra help right now and write it down. Two years from today the Plainfield Garden Club will host the Zone Meeting, come hell or high water.

ONE MINUTE BLACKOUT

Hazel: Well, a whole year has gone by and besides going to meetings where we drink Bloody Marys and eat richer foods than normally, I can't see that anything has been accomplished, except that Frankie and Laura are not speaking. and they were such old friends!

Meechi: The Zimmermans had their house painted, and Gladys resigned.

Hazel: Did you hear that Lulu almost had a nervous breakdown?
Page two

Meechi: Oh, what happened?

Hazel: She hasn't been able to find a suitable wall paper for her guest room.

Meechi: The poor dear! But I must say, I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown with that printer. He just couldn't get the idea of rosemary green print on butterscotch paper.

Hazel: If you only knew what I went through trying to get members to make really fat French knots for the delegates' bags!

Meechi: Do you get the feeling that your're carrying this whole thing alone? I mean like the decisions that have to be made; for instance, should I use my mother's linen sheets?

Hazel: Oh, don't. That heavy embroidery leaves marks in the funniest places!

Meechi: Mmmm . . . What if Stan gets so cross at my obvious exhaustion he really does take off for Reno?

Hazel: You mean in that plane all the husbands have chartered?

Meechi: Yes.

PAUSE

Hazel: Did you hear that some guests are arriving with personal maids and chauffeurs? What are we going to do in our split-level environment?

Meechi: I'll take all the maids, but I can't see a chauffeur driving our '67 Jeep. I think I'll have another drink.

Hazel: I was thinking of having creamed fiddleheads at my luncheon. Could they possibly be on the Conservation list?

Meechi: Well, you could ask to have the Founders' Fund and the Bulletin group. I don't think they'd mind.

Hazel: I think I'll have another drink. Have you ever heard of a Zone Meeting just being cancelled

Page three

Meechi: Cabinet meetings, yes; Supreme Court, yes; Zone Meetings, no . . . .

Hazel: We've been working on a time schedule, and everybody seems to think it's a great idea, but I wonder. 50 people in the Vest Pocket Park for two hours?

Meechi: I asked Stan about that, but he didn't answer. Well, actually he hasn't spoken to me for two weeks.

Hazel: Can you imagine having the Annual Meeting?

Meechi: Right now, it I weren't so brave, I'd cry!

BLACKOUT
BOTH EXHAUSTED AND COLLAPSED

Hazel: All I said was that we would have been married 22 years this Thursday.

Meechi: Oh, honey, don't worry. The husbands will be back after it's all over. Only my doctor says it will be a long time before I can play golf again.

Hazel: Well, we've reached a point of no return. They're all coming tomorrow, only, where they're landing is a moot point. Somebody said the map was all wrong. They wouldn't do that on purpose, do you think?

Meechi: Did they finally find a place for Mrs. Waller's horses?

Hazel: After they were turned down by four motels, they decided to let them graze with the Loizeaux' Aberdeen Angus; the Loizeaux are awfully nice about things like that. Do you honestly think they're going to enjoy taking the Garden Walk for an our in the rain?

Meechi: It seemd a good idea when we planned it in the spring. Anyway, garden clubbers are a rugged lot.

Hazel: The Zone 8 Chairman was going to stay with us and then my ex-roomate who knows her showed her pictures from our yearbook.

Meechi: So?

Hazel: So, the next day, the chairman called me and said she wouldn't be able to come. Do you get a message from that?
Skit continues. Page 4

Meechi: Yes, you're overtied and oversensitive. Have an aspirin.

Hazel: I ticked off every detail I did . . . one, two . . . Hey! I forgt Tony was going to boarding school today, his first time away from home.

Meechi: He'll live through it . . . It's too bad what's her name is involved in the Bryant Park show, and can't come.

Hazel: Who?

Meechi: Oh, you know her name, the first vice president.

Hazel: Oh, it's Bunny Bunny? It's one of those strange foreign names.

Meechi: Oh, duPont.

Hazel: How do you spell it?

Meechi: I don't know. Do you think anything good can come out of this terrible mess?

Hazel: If you promise you won't tell anybody on the committee I'll let you in on a secret.

Meechi: O.K. What is it?

Hazel: I've really had fun.

Meechi: Me, too.

Memories by Barbara Sandford March 20, 2012

Barbara reminisced about her years in the garden club. She said she was happy being a junior member but was not happy when "they" made her move to Active member in 1954 as she was busy raising her children.

She clearly remembered the skit performed by Meechy Loosli and Hazel Lockwood for the 1970 Zone IV Meeting. She said it was very funny. She said Hazel, Meechy and Jack Roome were all entertainers. They always put on skits, especially at the Monday Afternoon Club.

Barbara spoke about her trip to Japan as our delegate. She said that was her fondest memory of being part of the club, although she paid for the trip herself.

Barbara also spoke about the demise of the famous Iris Garden and said it was two members in particular that did it in – although she would not name them.

When Etheledreda Anderegg was mentioned, she exclaimed that she had not thought her in years, but alas, we were interrupted and our walk down memory lane ceased.

Tracy Sandford Whitehead and her mother, Barbara Tracy Sandford, join the garden club for lunch on Barbara's 94th birthday. Many fun stories were shared including this one:

Yet another funny story Tracy told was about her mother's first massage. She was in Hawaii on GCA business (!) and her dear friend and Plainfield Garden Club member, Hazel Lockwood, suggested that they were in Hawaii and they were going to get massages. So Barbara and Hazel went to the massage place and were told unceremoniously to get undressed! Shocked, but adventurous, they did!

From reading the files, your Editor remarked that Mrs. Lockwood seemed to be a lot of fun. Tracy turned to her mother and asked, "Was Hazel Lockwood a lot of fun?" And the wide-eyed expression on Barbara's face was enough of an answer!

Hi Susan,

And here is a 1970 picture I took of my mother with some of her closest friends: "Dodi" Roome, Betty Fitzpatrick, "Dot" Genung, and Charlotte Montgomery, the Good Housekeeping columnist who lived in Westfield.

I've also included one of my mother with the poet and writer Adele DeLeeuw, who lived a few doors down from us on Oakland Avenue with her illustrator sister, Cateau.

By the way, Hazel Lockwood and her husband Fritz were my godparents. They also lived on Oakland Avenue.

1961 Barbara Tracy Sandford Archives from the GCA trip to Hawaii and Japan

The following documents contain photos of menus, vintage postcards, letters, books on Ikebana and much more from Barbara's trip in April through May 1961 to Hawaii and Japan. Barbara, and her dear friend Hazel Lockwood, were delegates to the Garden Club of America's annual meeting in Hawaii. An optional trip to Japan was added on after the meeting. Barbara had described this trip as one of the most fantastic experiences in her life.

There are of course many mentions of Hazel in Barbara's letters. One is a postcard to Webster Sandford telling him that Hazel has received no mail and he "better tell Fritz." Another is a complaint to Webster how she and Hazel were split up for dinner one night in Hawaii. Barbara went to the Lathams and said the baby, although small, was sweet. She also said that the Lathams and other "Navy people" were hard to talk to. Another mention of Hazel is from Webster to Barbara – asking that she and Hazel please not buy any stone lanterns and have them shipped.

Tea to Honor Pioneer in Planting of Dogwood

Almost as though it had the power of imagination, the dogwood in Cornus (Dogwood) Dr., Cedar Brook Park, is expected to reach its annual stage of flowering beauty this week.

For tomorrow, at 4 p.m., members of the Plainfield Garden Club and its Cornus Arboretum Committee will hold a tea and reception to honor two pioneers in the 25-year-ago development of what has become the most outstanding horticultural display in this section of the country.

They are Mrs. Thomas van Boskerck and Miss Harriette R. Halloway and the tribute will be paid to them in the Field House of Cedar Brook Park, with Mrs. Robert T. Stevens acting as chairman, assisted by Mrs. Georges J. His and Mrs. William K. Dunbar Jr.

Commission Cooperated

Mrs. Van Boskerck suggested the planting of a vacant space in Cedar Brook park – then under development – with dogwood, in 1931, a suggestion which aroused immediately the interest of the Garden Club members. Support came from Miss Halloway and the then club president, Mrs. Henry Wells. Cooperation of the Union County Park Commission was obtained.

In 1940, plans were made for an extended planting, with Mrs. William A. Holliday and Mrs. William Tyler as co-chairmen. They approached the Park Commission and that body furnished a large boulder and suitable tablet for the drive entrance.

The 1931 planting had included 78 white and 17 pink dogwoods. In 1940, another 110 were added, on both sides of the drive. The Park Commission added a background of evergreens to make the setting even more attractive.

Plantings Expanded

The suggestion of W. R. Tracey of the commission led, in 1946, to further expansion of the plantings into a full arboretum. In its development, the advice and cooperation of Ralph H. Carver of the commission, was an important factor.

There are now 45 varieties of dogwood in the Arboretum, and some young trees are grown to add to the arboretum in the commission's nurseries. So extensive was the local display grown that it now is necessary to exchange with other arboretums in the nations, since the average nursery no longer has the capacity to supply rare and beautiful varieties.

By request, articles on the Cedar Brook Arboretum have been written for the Bulletin of the Garden Club of America and the Bulletin of the Arboretum organization in Seattle, Wash.

Dr. Donald Wyman, head of the Arnold Arboretum, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., has listed the Cedar Brook plantings in his authoritative "Arboretums and Botanical Gardens of America," a unique distinction.

One rare species is the "Cornus Nuttalli," native of the West Coast from British Columbia to Seattle, Wash. Told that it had once held a single bloom here, Dr. Wyman was astounded.

This year, the rare tree, planted by Miss Halloway, has nine buds.

June 14, 1961 Meeting Minutes

The Plainfield Garden Club met today June 14th for a picnic at the home of Mrs. Robert T. Stevens on Woodland Avenue.

After the business meeting Mrs. Webster Sandford, pres. and Mrs. Frederick M. Lockwood, program chairman, reported on the annual meeting of The Garden Club of America, which they attended recently in Honolulu, Hawaii.

They showed slides and movies of the Islands of Maui and Hawaii and then told the Club of their further visit to Japan where for two weeks with other members of the Garden Club of America, they were guests of the Japanese American Society.

Receptions for groups were given at, The Akasaka Detached Palace in Toyko where they were received by the Crown Prince and Princes; at the Prime Minister's Official Residence by Foreign Minister and Mrs. Zentaso Kosaka, and at the American Embassy by Ambassador and Mrs. Edwin O. Reischaur.

Formal dinners were given by the The American-Japan Society, Society for International Cultural Relations, and the Japan Tourist Association at the Imperial Hotel in Toyko and in Osaka by the Governor of Osaka Prefecture, Mayor of Osaka, President of Osaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and the President of America-Japan Society.

Mrs. Sandford and Mrs. Lockwood showed pictures of the three garden parties they attended. Mr. and Mrs. Shojiro Ishibashi, President of Japan Landscape Architets, garden The Nomura Garden and at Oiso, former Prime Minister, Shirgeru Yoshida, now Chairman of the Welcome Committee of Japan, received them with this messafe of welcome. "The doors of our hearts and gardens are opened without reserve for your full enjoyment. It is our ernest hope that you will throughly enjoy the scenic beauties of our land and the spirit of fellowship and hospitality of our people."

Special performances in their honor were given at, The Imperial Palace Musci Hall to see the Geisha girls dance the famous Cherry Dance as guests of the Mayor of Keyto and at Senke Kaikan Hall, the traditional Tea Ceremony. Gifts from all these people and places were displayed on a bright red Japanese banner for the Club to help illustrate bring to life this most unusual trip.

Thanks to PGC Archivists and Historians Jeanne Turner and Patti Dunstan, we now are able to enjoy a few of the films found in Barbara Tracy Sandford's basement last year.

This color home movie is of Barbara Tracy Sandford's trip to Japan in the Spring of 1961. Barbara was the PGC President and the Garden Club of America's annual meeting was held in Hawaii that year. Barbara, along with her good friend and PGC Delegate, traveled to Hawaii and then joined the GCA on the side trip to Japan. Barbara often remarked how this trip was one of the greatest experiences of her life.

1961 Japan by Barbara Tracy Sandford Part II

Apologies for the silence – I did not have time to lay down a music track to further your enjoyment! The best bits are the scenes of the GCA ladies in their Mad Men suits, hats and gloves. Barbara was clearly missing her family as she captures many snippets of adorable Japanese children. Had to laugh out loud when Japanese billboards, taken from the bus, popped on the screen – Barbara probably considered starting "Scenic Japan" at that point!

The Other Face of Freedom This circa 1970's black-and-white film was discovered in Barbara Tracy Sandford's memorabilia. It was produced by the Road Information Program in Washington, DC. It begins with perhaps a more conservation-themed dialogue about how over-building and lack of planning hurts our nation's resources. However, it seems like the auto industry swooped in from Detroit and the film ends with this message: Highways are a tool for becoming a better America.

Enjoy a look back at some iconic images of our Nation and glimpse a little Mad Men-themed advertising. It will remind you of your grade school film strips ('memba those?). Even though this was made about 40 years ago, a lot is still the same. (Shout out to Diana – check out the image of the Admiral on the Mississippi under the Gateway to the West!)

Plainfield firefighters responded early Saturday evening to a suspicious fire in a historic factory structure at South Avenue and Berckman Street.

The complex of three buildings, parts of which are over a hundred years old, most recently housed the Royal Apex Company, a manufacturer of gutters and other metal and plastic extruded products. The buildings have been vacant since 2007, when Royal Apex was bought out by Berger Building Products, Inc., and operations were moved to Pennsylvania.

Originally, the buildings housed the Rushmore Dynamo Works, owned by Plainfield entrepreneur and inventor Samuel W. Rushmore. Rushmore made his fortune in patents and manufacturing several key improvements in automobile technology.

Among his notable inventions – or improvements on those of others – are the automatic starter, cooling systems for internal combustion engines, the flared automobile headlamp, a searchlight, and locomotive headlights. At one time, half of all the automatic starters used in American automobiles were manufactured in the Plainfield location.

Rushmore sold the business in 1914 to the Bosch Magneto Company, with the proviso that the Rushmore name be used on its products for a number of years. When Bosch violated the terms of the agreement, Rushmore successfully sued (see here) for $100,000 (which would be over $2 million today).

Bosch, a German company with a U.S. branch, established a separate U.S. corporation, headquartered in New York City. Because of suspicions of its owners' loyalty, Bosch was nationalized in both the First and Second World Wars – with control returning to private hands in 1948.

Though several area fire companies responded to the blaze, it was quickly brought under control. A source told me the fire is suspected to be arson, a determination that will be made officially by arson investigators.
