George W. Ingram

George Washington Ingram, born in Rockport, Gal, 22 February 1918, enlisted in the Navy as Apprentice Seaman at Birmingham, Ala., 18 March 1941. Assigned to the Naval Training Station, Norfolk, VA., he transferred to Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla., 30 May and was advanced to Seaman Second Class 18 July. He was assigned to duty with Patrol Wing 2 on 26 September and was stationed at the Naval Air Station, Kanoche Bay, Oahu, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor 7 December. The main center for land-based patrol bombers Kanoche Bay was hit hard by several waves of enemy planes which bombed and strafed planes, hangers, and men. As the first attacked occurred, Seaman Second Class Ingram was among the first to rush to action. In utter disregard of personal danger, he fought to repel the enemy and died during the attack. He was commended by Admiral Nimitz. Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet, for his heroism in the defense of Kanoche Bay Naval Air Station.

George Washington Ingram (DE-62) was laid down
February 1943 by the Bethlehem-Hingham Shipyard, Inc., Hingham, Mass.; launched 8 May 1943, sponsored by Mrs. James L. Ingram, mother of Seaman Second Class Ingram and commissioned 11 August 1943, Lt. Comdr. Ernest R. Perry in command. ~ ~

After shakedown off Bermuda, George W. Ingram departed New York 13 October for convoy escort duty in the Atlantic. Steaming via the West Indies, she escorted a supply convoy to North Africa, where she arrived Algiers, Algeria, 7 November. She departed 4 days later as convoy escort and returned via the West Indies and the Canal Zone to New York, arriving 4 December. Between 26 December and 12 July 1944, she made five round-trip transatlantic escort voyages (four from New York and one from Boston ) to Northern Ireland.

After additional escort duty along the eastern seaboard, she departed Charleston, S.C., 6 November to escort slowtowing convoy CK-4 to Plymouth, England. She arrived 5 December, then sailed a week later escorting ships and landing craft damaged during the Normandy Invasion back to the United States. On the 20th, U - 70 attacked the slow-moving convoy northeast of the Azores, sinking LST-859 and damaging Fogg (DE 57); but prompt action by the escorts drove off the U-boat, preventing further damage. George W. Ingram reached New York 12 January 1945.

After escorting a captured Italian submarine from Portsmouth, N,H., to New London, Conn., George W. Ingram was redesignated APD 13 on 23 February. During the next few months she underwent conversion to a highspeed transport at Tompkinsville, N.Y. Shortly after V-E Day, she departed New York and sailed via the Panama Canal and San Diego to Pearl Harbor, where she arrived 20 June for training with underwater demolition teams.

With UDT-26 embarked, she departed Pearl Harbor 24 August and sailed via Eniwetok and Okinawa to Jinsen, Korea, where on 8 September she supported the initial landings of American occupation troops in Korea. She steamed to Taka Bar, China, 26 September, and from 29 September to 1 October UDT-26 surveyed and sounded the approaches of the Peking River in preparation for landings by the III Marine Amphibious Corps. She supported additional landings by American troops at Chefoo and Tsingtao, China, before departing Tsingtao 17 October. She steamed via Okinawa, Eniwetok, and Pearl Harbor to the West Coast, arriving San Diego 11 November. Remaining at San Diego, George W. Ingram decommissioned 15 January 1947 and entered the Pacific Reserve Fleet at Bremerton Wash George W. Ingram was struck from the Navy list 1 January 1967.

A Quick Political History Of White Supremacy

There have always been white supremacists among us. In that sense what we witnessed in Charlottesville was part of a long history that reaches back to the very founding of the nation. It is the central paradox of American history that the United States began as a nation committed simultaneously to freedom and slavery.

No surprise then that white supremacy has been woven into the fabric of our political parties as they have shifted and evolved over the last century and a half. The Republican Party was founded in 1856 as the party of abolitionists Southern Democrats defended slavery and created the Confederacy when Republican Abraham Lincoln became president in 1861.

After the Civil War and the end of slavery, Southern Democrats built a new regime of white supremacy. It included legalized segregation as well as extra-legal forms of oppression, and it was enforced through regular and horrific acts of terrorist violence. The most flamboyant white supremacists at the turn of the 20th century were Democratic politicians. Like South Carolina Senator “Pitchfork Ben” Tillman, who denounced President Theodore Roosevelt for inviting Booker T. Washington to the White House, vowing that it would require “our killing a thousand n***s in the South before they learn their place again.” White Supremacy was the foundation upon which the “solid South” was built, and it was solidly Democratic.

That foundation began to crack during the Great Depression as more voters from outside the South supported Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal. After the war this geographic shift led to a movement away from white supremacy within the party. Democratic President Harry Truman issued an executive order desegregating the army in 1948, and in that same year the party’s official platform endorsed African American civil rights for the first time.

These changes were greeted with howls of outrage by Southern Democrats, for whom all political considerations were secondary to their commitment to white supremacy. In 1948, South Carolina Governor Strom Thurmond led a walk-out of the Democratic Party’s presidential convention and ran for president himself on the “States’ Rights” ticket. They were called “Dixiecrats,” and their central pledge was to maintain racial segregation. They won four southern states in that election.

What began as a walkout turned into something of an exodus. As the Democratic Party committed itself increasingly to civil rights, Southern Democrats started leaving the party in droves. President Lyndon Johnson, himself a Southern Democrat, knew as much. After he signed the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 Johnson quipped to his aide Bill Moyers, “I think we just delivered the South to the Republican Party for a long time to come.”

That was certainly the thesis of Kevin Phillips’ highly influential and prescient book The Emerging Republican Majority, published in 1969. Phillips had worked on Richard Nixon’s campaign the year before. As a Republican political operative, Phillips helped construct the party’s “Southern strategy” in the 1970s. Phillips saw the situation quite starkly: the more the Democratic Party became associated with African Americans, the more what he called “negrophobe” whites would become Republicans. He was largely right.

The Southern Strategy triumphed in 1980. Campaigning in August, Ronald Reagan delivered a speech near Philadelphia, Mississippi. That town was most infamous as the site of the white supremacist murders of three civil rights workers in 1964. Reagan did not mention them. Instead, he echoed Strom Thurmond’s 1948 call for “states’ rights.” The dog-whistle had been blown, and hearing it, white supremacists knew they had a home in Reagan’s Republican Party.

Lee Atwater was one of Reagan’s advisors, and in a 1981 interview he explained the Southern Strategy in terms that are shocking if only for their candor. Admitting that you couldn’t use the “n” word anymore – more’s the pity – he continued: “so you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights, and all that stuff. . .and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites.” Atwater went on to manage George H. W. Bush’s presidential run in 1988 and was then made chairman of the Republican National Committee.

White supremacists have always been among us. After roughly a century of catering to them, the Democratic Party decided to purge them instead. It was politically costly, but it was unquestionably the right thing to do. So now they have gravitated to the GOP because the party opened its arms to them.

The Democratic Party has shed its past. We’re waiting for the Republican Party to shed its present.

They were two young men from the Show-Me State with big ideas.
Arthur Grissom and George Creel founded The Independent.
The first issue appeared in March 1899.

Arthur was a poet and short-story writer, originally from Independence, Missouri. He found success in New York, but a hometown romance would alter the course of his life, not once, but numerous times. The girl was Julia Woods. Her father, Dr. W.S. Woods, was a millionaire banker. Unlike his daughter, Dr. Woods had no weakness for poetry – or for poets. The romance ended, and Arthur moved to New York alone. Julia became engaged to a Missouri banker. Her mother made a few mistakes: one was taking Julia to New York to buy her trousseau, and the other was allowing Julia to go out by herself one day. Mrs. Woods had a headache that morning, and a bigger headache by nightfall: Julia and Arthur, by happenstance or prior plan, had run into each other and promptly been declared man and wife at the Little Church Around the Corner. Julia’s parents were appalled. (That banker to whom she was engaged? He exits the story here.) There was, as so often in melodramas, a softening in attitudes after the union was blessed with a baby girl, Gladys. At that point, Dr. Woods decided that the best course of action was to make a Missouri banker out of Arthur, thus bringing Julia and Gladys back home. If that had ended well, there would have been no Independent, and maybe Gladys wouldn’t have been the only child of that marriage. Instead, Arthur was miserable – and he decided to ask his friend George to leave New York to start a newspaper in Kansas City. The two financed the project by selling subscriptions prior to publication. Arthur’s departure from the bank led to his separation from Julia and also from Gladys. Arthur sued Dr. Woods for alienation of affection. The lawsuit was settled for $18,000. At that point, Arthur returned to New York. He was a founder of The Smart Set and served as its co-editor for a year. Then, on December 4, 1901, he died of typhoid fever. Arthur was only 31. He didn’t see Gladys grow up to be the wife of James Madison Kemper. He wasn’t there for the years when H.L. Mencken was writing for The Smart Set. If he had lived to be 100, he would have seen The Independent pass its 70th anniversary – and that was more than 45 years ago.

George Creel

George Creel was also a Missourian, born in Lafayette County in 1876. He grew up poor, bounced around Kansas City and Odessa, Missouri, and left school without a high school diploma. In spite of that, he was on the staff of The Kansas City World newspaper by the time he was in his early 20s. He spent a brief time in New York before returning to Kansas City at Arthur’s request. George continued to run The Independent for years after Arthur left town, finally parting with the magazine in 1909. He then moved to Denver, where he worked as a newspaperman and was, for a time, a police commissioner. He married in 1912 and fathered a son and daughter. After the outbreak of World War I, at President Woodrow Wilson’s request, George served as the chairman of Committee on Public Information (CPI), with the goal of influencing how Americans thought about the war. For this, he is sometimes credited – or blamed – as the inventor of the modern propaganda machine. After the war ended, George moved to California, wrote books and was active in politics. He died in San Francisco in 1953, and he is buried in Mount Washington Cemetery in Independence, Missouri.

Katherine Baxter Clara Kellogg

Clara Kellogg and Katherine Baxter were the owners of The Kellogg-Baxter Printing Company. They had been printing the magazine for some years. George Creel either sold The Independent to them, or (rumor has it) he may have given it to them. Clara, the elder of the two, was born in Ohio in 1865. (Some of her relatives were in the newspaper business. One Kellogg married a Scripps, also a name known in publishing. That couple lived in California, and numbered the founder of the La Jolla Bath and Tennis Club among their descendants. Members of the family on at least one occasion visited Clara in Kansas City.) Clara was sometimes called “Mrs. Kellogg,” but she was in fact Miss Kellogg throughout her life. It is likely that Clara and Katherine Baxter had what in those days was called a “Boston marriage.” Today, we might simply call it a marriage. They lived and worked together.

Giles P. Cain

George had been interested in politics, which Clara and Katherine preferred not to cover. In 1914, Giles P. Cain began writing theater reviews. Giles looked a good deal like the comedian George Burns (or, at least, the way George Burns looked six decades later), and his opinions would be a fixture in the magazine for years. “Betty Ann Tittle Tattle,” a gossip column, also started during this era, as did the “I Wonders” which are still being written. (I Wonder – why the I Wonder feature has lasted so long – is it because it’s fun to read, fun to write or both?)

On April 4, 1924, Katherine died at the young age of 43, struck down by pneumonia. Her death certificate lists her occupation as “Editor – The Independent.” Clyde Elaine Robinson, (yes, you’re not alone — we suspect her parents wanted a boy), served as editor until 1927, when Clara added that title to her many other roles. For the rest of the years that Clara owned the magazine, a memorial to Katherine, with a picture of her as a young woman, ran in The Independent on the first Saturday in April.

Martha Hall Nichols (later Gaylord) Gleed Gaylord

Martha Hall Nichols began work at The Independent in 1928. She was a diminutive girl with large, soulful eyes and the short hair of a flapper. On September 17, 1932, Martha married Gleed Gaylord. He was 28, and she was 24. (Shh! A lady never tells her age.) Their wedding was not the grand event of the type so often written up in the magazine. Martha’s mother had died, and the ceremony was at her father’s house. Her future mother-in-law offered to have a white tulle dress made for her, but Martha chose instead a short “bright geranium red” dress of crepe de chine, designed by Nettie Rosenstein. Mr. and Mrs. Gaylord resided for many years in a 19th century house near The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, which they filled with 18th century French antiques.

In December 1939, Martha Gaylord bought the controlling interest in The Creel Publishing Company from Clara Kellogg, who remained the owner of the Kellogg-Baxter Printing Company. At this point, Martha Gaylord became the executive editor, with Miss Kellogg as president and treasurer.

During World War II, Martha Gaylord realized that the magazine appealed to men as well as women, when she received requests to send copies to servicemen overseas.

Pat Patzer

Miss Kellogg died on January 7, 1944, at the age of 78, just at the time that The Independent was moving its offices from 301 Admiral Boulevard to the fifth floor of the Hayes Building at 920 Grand Avenue. The January 8th cover shows a crayon drawing of a tiger-striped cat carrying her kitten with the announcement of the new address. When Clara died in January 1944, she was still residing at 1837 Pendleton Avenue, where she had lived with Katherine in happier times. From that address, Clara had managed the Kellogg-Baxter Printing Company until its sale a few weeks prior to her death. As her obituary stated, “her pleasant office commanded a sweeping view of the Missouri River, the rolling vistas of Cliff Drive and the rugged hills she loved.”

Mary Maloney was hired in 1948. She later became the executive editor, serving until 1969. Pat Patzer joined the staff in 1961. She would remain with The Independent for the rest of her life.

Martha Gaylord

When The Independent celebrated its 65th anniversary in 1964, its offices were located in the Scarritt Arcade at 819 Walnut Street. The magazine employed 14 women. Martha Gaylord told Marjean Phillips of The Kansas City Star, “In this day of advanced communications, people are aware of the distress of the world. I think we are starved for bright moments, and The Independent provides just that.” Advertisers saluted the publication few could match its longevity.

Martha Gaylord’s business became her husband’s, as well. At the time of his death in 1966, Gleed Gaylord was the business manager of The Independent.

A profile of Mrs. Gaylord written in 1969 by Laura Rollins Hockaday of The Kansas City Star paints a vivid portrait of her: “She seems at once to be a personification of all things feminine and a giant of confidence when it comes to stating decisions or philosophies. Like her magazine, she stands against the rush of changing social customs with a definite tone to her voice, which has not a hint of fragility.” In that article, Mrs. Gaylord was quoted as saying, “The world is always going to want beautiful things such as beautiful homes and elegant parties. It is up to the leaders of a community to uphold the tradition of good manners and good taste. There are no two ways about taste: it is either good or bad. A city is built on a substantial number of people who stand for high ideals and who give their time to work for everything from hospital benefit balls to presentations of their own debutante children.”

William T. “Billy” Kemper, Jr.

Throughout Mrs. Gaylord’s time at the magazine, the activities of William T. “Billy” Kemper, Jr., the bachelor banker who looked like a movie star, had been chronicled in the magazine. In the years after Gleed Gaylord’s death, he frequently served as her escort. When interviewed by Laura Rollins Hockaday about Mrs. Gaylord, Mr. Kemper said, “She can walk into a New York office and come out with a national account. She is an outstanding business executive. When she took the magazine over from Miss (Clara E.) Kellogg, she put pep into it. She graduated it from something of pure gossip, to a weekly with information. It is the only magazine of its kind to survive, because its style isn’t pure cutting. And people familiar with it love to read it in all parts of the world.”

Mr. and Mrs. Robert P. Ingram, Jr.

After 27 years in the Scarritt Arcade, the magazine moved its headquarters to the Union Carbide Building at 912 Baltimore in 1973. The following year, Mrs. Gaylord turned over the editorial duties to Patricia “Pat” Patzer. Her tenure as editor of The Independent would last 16 years. Although she owned a 1950s car (in mint condition), Miss Patzer preferred riding the bus to driving. What she saw on her way downtown often turned up in her column, “Over My Shoulder.” Martha Gaylord didn’t drive to work, either. Former staff member Barbara Butler remembers Mrs. Gaylord (never “Mrs. G.”) arriving at the office in a Dillard’s cab during their time at the Union Carbide building. Martha Gaylord moved to The Walnuts in 1978. Five years later, Mrs. Gaylord sold The Independent. Robert P. Ingram, Jr. was first listed as publisher on the masthead of the July 9, 1983 issue.

Mr. Ingram (his contemporaries called him “Bob”) was best-known as a businessman and a philanthropist. He started his career as a salesman when he was still a schoolboy, and his interest in the stock market began just a few years later. Mr. Ingram’s motto was “Nothing happens ’til somebody sells something.” He moved to Kansas City in the 1940s. Mary Elizabeth “Beth” Renfro caught his eye, and the two were wed in September 1949. Two children were born of this marriage – Jill Ingram Reynolds and Robert P. Ingram III, better-known as Chip. Mr. Ingram became a significant investor in Rubbermaid stock, a real estate developer and the owner of radios stations and magazines. When asked about himself, he preferred to say only, “I’m just a shy backward Republican trying to make a living.” The truth was a good deal more complex. Mr. Ingram worked hard on behalf of projects that he believed would improve Our Town. He was a patron of the Lyric Opera, a role continued by Mrs. Ingram and their children. On top of all else, Mr. Ingram brought The Independent into the computer age. That was no small feat.

Martha Nichols Gaylord died in 1986. She was survived by her sisters, Mary D. Nichols and Margaret Adella Nichols Simonds (Mrs. Lowell Goodman Simonds) — and by The Independent. The 1983 sale ensured it was in good hands. George Creel, Katherine Baxter and Clara Kellogg and Martha and Gleed Gaylord: all are buried at Mount Washington Cemetery in Independence, Missouri.

Pat Patzer was a very private person. While she was the editor of The Independent, her other responsibilities including caring for her elderly mother and enduring many years of treatment for cancer. Pat preferred not to ask for help, and often turned down offers of assistance. In conversation, she deftly deflected the topic from her life to that of the person with her. Pat died in April 1990, less than a month after her mother’s death.

Georganne Hall (Photo Credit: David Riffel)

Georganne Hall, the daughter of Jewel Ball chairman Sallie Stanley Oliver and a future Jewel Ball chairman herself, was named editor that June.

One of Mr. Ingram’s properties was the Argyle Building, and The Independent moved there. When Bartle Hall was under construction in 1994, staff members could watch the progress from the west windows of their 10th floor offices. A few years later, the offices moved downstairs to the sixth floor. There was even a time when the advertising staff’s quarters were the daytime home of a darling litter of Jack Russell terriers, thanks to an enterprising employee who was also a dog breeder.

Laurie and Chip Ingram Marie Brown

In 1996, Laureen “Laurie” Maher Ingram, the wife of Robert Palmer “Chip” Ingram III, purchased the magazine from her father-in-law. Laurie and Chip were both active in managing The Independent for more than 20 years. After the elder Mr. Ingram’s death in 1997, his secretary, Marie Brown, remained with the business, becoming Laurie’s executive assistant. Marie had encyclopedic knowledge of longtime subscribers. She knew everyone’s name and was a master proofreader. “Mother Marie,” as some called her, was the heart of The Independent for many years.

Through the decades, the vast majority of staff members have been female. A notable exception is Mark Haas. He first appeared on the masthead in the 1990s, eventually serving as associate publisher.

The Independent’s 100th Anniversary Gala was held in March 1999, with a guest list that included longtime subscribers Martha Belle Aikins Smith, Josephine Stubbs, Eva Pickard, Margie Jo Sams, Tillie Heyle, in addition to Marilyn Sinclair and Winifred Spradling, (they were sisters – their maiden name was Jenkins), and the Matthews sisters, Madeline and Jeanne. Georganne Hall remained editor until 2002. She was first succeeded by Julie Mulhern (now known for her Country Club Murders series of mystery novels featuring Ellison Russell), then by Anne Potter Russ, and later by Ann Slegman, both of whom now serve as contributing writers.

The Independent left downtown in 2004. The Ingram family sold the Argyle Building, and Laurie and Chip Ingram bought 4233 Roanoke Road, (remembered by some as the Pioneer Financial Building). Callers were still greeted by Jean Miller, the longtime receptionist, whose good cheer in answering the telephone can’t be rendered in print. Suffice it to say that the rising tones she brought to the simple greeting, “Good afternoon, The Independent!” are well-remembered years after her retirement at the beginning of 2012.

Lisa M. Shea began her association with the magazine in 1996. To this day, her ability as art director draws praise from readers and advertising clients alike. Jenny Owens Hughes joined the staff in 2004 and has flourished in a variety of roles including editorial associate and projects manager. She is now the Associate Publisher. Nancy Sachse has been the editor since 2012, fulfilling her duties even while serving as chairman of the 2017 Jewel Ball.

In the spring of 2017, Rachel and Jake Falcon purchased The Independent. Several weeks later, the two were wed. (Why yes, we could certainly make an “I Wonder” out of that!) As spring arrived in 2018, The Independent headed southwest, relocating to a new office at 2400 West 75th Street in Prairie Village, Kansas.

History of the Mohawk Valley: Gateway to the West 1614-1925Chapter 63: The Oriskany Roster.

[This information is from Vol. I, pp. 842-849 of History of the Mohawk Valley: Gateway to the West 1614-1925 , edited by Nelson Greene (Chicago: The S. J. Clarke Publishing Company, 1925). It is in the Reference collection of the Schenectady County Public Library at R 974.7 G81h. This online edition includes lists of portraits, maps and illustrations. Some images have been relocated to the area in the text where they are discussed. As noted by Paul Keesler in his article, "The Much Maligned Mr. Greene," some information in this book has been superseded by later research or was provided incorrectly by local sources.]

Roster of Tryon County Militia known to have fought at the Battle of Oriskany — A list of 457 names, as compared with 250 on the Oriskany battlefield monument.

The original Oriskany Roster appeared on the Oriskany Battlefield Monument. It is reproduced herewith in an engraving. It later appeared in Simms' Frontiersmen of New York . Both of these rosters, in the main, were the work of Jeptha R. Simms, the historian of Fort Plain. The two lists numbered about 250 names.

In the summer of 1924, the Editor of the " History of the Mohawk Valley — Gateway to the West ", made an effort to enlarge the Oriskany Roster. The list was published in several Mohawk Valley newspapers, with a request for additional names. From time to time, such names were sent the Editor until the Oriskany Roster, as published here numbers 455 names, nearly double the number on the Oriskany Battlefield Monument and in Simms' Frontiersmen . We now know over half of the Revolutionary American soldiers who marched to Oriskany, as no chroniclers of the time give the number at more than 900, and it was probably about 850.

The Editor wishes to express his thanks to all who aided him in enlarging this valuable Oriskany Roster, which is published complete only in this work. Thanks are especially due to the Utica Observer-Dispatch , Little Falls Times , Little Falls Journal and Courier , Fort Plain Standard and Amsterdam Recorder which published the roster and the request for additional names. Acknowledgments are particularly due to Mrs. W. T. Van Dusen of Fonda, and Mrs. Delight A. R. Keller of Little Falls, who were unusually zealous in increasing our roll of Oriskany fighters. Mrs. Van Dusen contributed about 90 of the new names sent in. Care was taken to see that the Oriskany service of these Revolutionary veterans was properly accredited, and the additional names were mainly contributed by Daughters of the American Revolution.

It is probable that a number of the names here given are those of men who were wounded and perhaps some were made prisoner. The list was compiled too long after the event to be complete as to casualties.

Christopher P. Yates says that 144 Tryon County Militia were slain at Oriskany, and this is probably a low figure. This list gives the names of 109 men who were killed in "the bloodiest battle of the Revolution", where the slain on the American side numbered one man out of five, and the wounded probably fully as many. The names of the killed would be remembered much longer than those who were wounded. Fully half of the American combatants were "down" or prisoners at the end of the battle.

The locality designations given are those of present townships, wherever possible. Thus "Mohawk" stands for present Mohawk township, Montgomery County and not for the village of Mohawk in Herkimer County. Where township residences were not obtainable the regimental membership or old Tryon County district residence of the soldier is given. In many instances it has been impossible to identify the exact locality from which the soldier came, although we are reasonably sure of his Revolutionary residence. It is also probable that in several instances an individual is duplicated. However, the roster represents a conscientious effort to obtain as large an authentic list of American soldiers who were at Oriskany as it was possible to obtain.

The Oriskany roster as it stands today follows: K. stands for "killed" W. for "wounded" P. for "prisoner".
