The Olompali Quest

My struggle to keep going, keep blogging, and keep looking, is epic. I have no money, yet I produce more than the billionaires. Two months ago my childhood friend, Nancy Hamren, talked about our past and our friends, then gave me a meaningful hug. Above is a photograph I took of her with Ken Babbs who is on the back of the Grateful Dead album, Aoxomoxoa. There is a photograph of a tree with people under it. Members of the Dead are here, along with members of the Olompali commune, known as ‘The Chosen Family’ are present. I will take this tree into the future.

“Prankster Ken Babbs appeared, along with his partner Gretchen Fetchin and two of their children. Babbs had known the Dead at least since the Acid Tests; he was then living with his family at the Dead’s warehouse/studio by Hamilton Air Force Base in Novato, and working as the caretaker there.”

Leonard and Beryl Buck had to be aware of the Hippies and the Grateful Dead, along with the Olompali group. These are POOR PEOPLE who were changing the world.

I watched the movie The Doors last night for the first time. My childhood friend was a good friend of Jim and Pam Morrison, and was asked to contribute his memoirs. he refused. I was living with the Loading Zone when I heard Jim’s first album. He had tapped into the LA Sexophone Mind Fuck Drug Game. He was a good friend of Michael McClure. The contact high from this film – was a trip! Jim’s encounter with Andy Warhol and his witchy friends was a bit much. In 1967 I was speaking out about the use of LSD saying we had a hit a wall, and to continue would be a disaster. Jim hit the wall as hard as he could.

In recovery there is a saying “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.” We have come full circle. Men with money do not make good Shaman’s because they higher YES FOLK. The Marin Community Foundation might be an empty façade that appears bent on producing Money Making Men&Women. Money Making may not be the answer as POTUS is proving in his College of White Family Privilege, the very institution we Hippies rebelled against. Producing Longer-Living People to live on a Dying Planet, is counter productive.

Nancy owns Cleo, rendered by her friend, Christine Rosamond Benton, who lived with Nancy and I in a famous SF commune. The law firm of Heisinger, Morris& Buck sold this history, along with my family history, to an outsider who titles herself  ‘Caretaker’. She is Sydney Morris’s Nurse Ratchet. Morris took delight in destroying our Poor History and allowing the Caretaker to denigrate a world famous woman artist who is depicted as a uncaring greedy pig – one of them! These foundations are tax right-offs, they used to intercept money for the poor in order to make the Altra-Rich look good.

Here is my letter to Congressman Peter DeFazio. These foreigners do not promote Peace in the World, and thus are opposed to the Traditional Peaceful History of Marin County. To discover Frank H. Buck ‘Tree Killer’ is very prophetic. These warriors hate Hippie history.

During the 1960s the Valley became a magnet for “Flower Children” from San Francisco, who set up camps and other unconventional abodes in the hills of San Geronimo Valley, much to the horror of many Valley residents.

In 1972 a Countywide Plan was proposed for adoption by the Marin County Board of Supervisors, and was adopted in 1973, emphasizing low density and the preservation of open space, rural areas, and agriculture. Also in 1972, Lagunitas resident Jean Berensmeier was informed that growth was a-comin’ to the Valley, based on the 1961 Valley Master Plan.

Two men added to the institute’s board of trustees in particular raised concerns: Fouad Makhzoumi, a Lebanese native and CEO of Future Group, who joined the board in 2014; and Rubar Sandi, chairman of the Sandi Group, who joined the board in 2015. Sandi is an Iraqi from a wealthy Kurdish family who immigrated to the United States in the late 1970s.

The Sandi Group’s work with Texas-based DynCorp has been investigated by the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, according to David Phinney, a Washington, D.C.-based freelance reporter whose work includes a series on contractors and private military companies working in Iraq.

Phinney said the Sandi Group teamed with DynCorp on a massive multi-year U.S. State Department contract to train more than 100,000 Iraqi police officers, as well as dozens of other projects.

CNN reported in 2007 that the “State Department had been unable to account for most of $1.2 billion in funding that it gave to DynCorp International to train Iraqi police.”

Neal Cassidy was another legendary visitor. Neal had hitchhiked across the country with Jack Kerouac in his epic journey described in On the Road. Later he would drive the bus Further across the country with the Merry Pranksters, thus serving as a bridge between the Beat Generation of the 50’s and the Hippie Generation of the 60s. George Hunter of the Charlatans’ band remembered, “the Dead would be playing and Neal Cassady would be doing this strange little dance— it was almost like breakdancing; very fluid. Out on the lawn there was this very far-out configuration of plumbing that was once part of a sprinkler system or something. It stuck out of the ground and stood maybe five feet high. I couldn’t figure out what the hell it was for. It was just a mess of pipes with faucets coming out of it that had been modified over the years. Very strange. So the Dead would be playing, and Neal would be dancing on the lawn with this bizarre metal partner. He’d dance around it, with it really. He had some pretty good moves, too. Neal was always in the thick of things.”

An Elizabethan English silver sixpence minted in 1567 was discovered in the park by archeologists, indicating that villagers may have had contact with Sir Francis Drake, or with people who had traded with the early English explorer.[5] Many Miwok cultural artifacts have been identified during archaeological studies within the area of the present-day park, indicating this may have once been an important trade and cultural crossroads.

The oldest house built north of the San Francisco Bay was built here in 1776 by the Coast Miwok, out of adobe bricks, and owned by the chief of the Olompoli tribe Aurelio, who was the father of Camillo Ynitia. Camillo was known as the last Hoipu (Headman) of the Miwok community living at Olompali.[3]

On the back of the Grateful Dead album, Aoxomoxoa, there is a photograph of a tree with people under it. Members of the Dead are here, along with members of the Olompali commune, known as ‘The Chosen Family’ are present. I will take this tree into the future. This is the Enidu tree from my science fiction novel ‘Elfine’ that I authored along with ‘The Gideon Computer’ inspired by my friends Nancy who lived with Mountain Girl’s brother on Ken Kesey’s ranch. I talked with Ken Babb’s at Nancy’s wedding about our writing. Babbs is under this tree, as is Bob Weir whom my daughter’s faux father impersonated. This works, because Robert Buck and his law firm came to own my families artistic legacy, and employed authors to make Stacey Pierrot the faux family caretaker. Robert Buck’s parents owned the ugliest piece of property in America, the oil field. Robert manges the Buck Institute in Novata that is researching how to stop people from aging. He also manages Alcohol Justine and Monterey Air where golfers at Pebble Beach land.

Why did they want to control my sister’s destiny? The Benton’s are a famous Masonic family.  No Hippie has enjoyed getting old. Millions of Christians are being offered Eternal Life. Then, there is The Rapture. Why have famous rock stars died mysteriously? Spooky Noodles claims the Buck Institute had the word “Temple” or “Tabernacle” in its title, and it once helped the poor artists of Marine. Consider who authored Frankenstein, and the movie ZARDOZ. This is a Vortex field by a ugly oil field that goes on for miles in the desert near Bakersfield. If aliens wanted to fund an earth lab, then they would become a oil company. We don’t take space money – yet!

I will be showing other groups that formed around the Loading Zone, Jim Morrison, and Love. Then there is Cornell Group that includes Richard and Mimi Farina. Then there is the Mel Lyman family who claimed they were from another planet. Note how the diagram on this site that attaches names to The People of the Tree, is similar to the hologram tree in the movie Avatar. It is said the Hippies invented the Computer.

There is a extended family around Jazz Artist, Les McCann, who just came out with a new book containing his photographs of famous musicians. Marilyn Reed grew up with Les and his family. Jazz Artist, Kenny Reed, played with Les, and with Ken Babbs on humerous occasions.

My great grandfather settled in San Geronimo that is near Olompali and the Buck Inst. My Janke kin lived on Height Street, and owned Belmont Park where visitors climbed into great trees and stood on platforms. My people gathered under redwoods in the Oakland Hills and were friends of Joaquin and Jaunita Miller who planted thousands of trees, and paid homage to my kin, John Freemont. Ten there is the Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, Michael Jackson, and Getty Family grouping.

Then there is the Mallard family who founded San Geronimo. Joseph Bonaparte sent Louis Mallard to France to retrieve a treasure he buried before he fled to America. Bonaparte’s sward sold for $6,000,000 dollars. Were the Bonaparte’s in search of the Knight Templar Treasure? Are the Benton Family – artistic aliens – they keeping up the ancient tradition that aliens made most of earth’s precious objects?

As the world ponders on how to handle ISIS, the monster they created, I am gathering the People of Peace and Music around the Lone Cypress Tree in order to save our planet, and perhaps, build a Starship which is done at the end of my novel ‘The Gideon Computer’. Jefferson Starship tried to get Kurt Vonnegut to come aboard their project ‘Blows Against the Empire.  Human Beings have gathered in the beautiful rolling hills and oaks of Marine County to build a ideal way of life. We are in space. However, our ship is being polluted by Oil Pirates who have morphed into a self-righteous murderous army of rapists and destroyers of Art. This is the Extreme Right! I have seen ISIS destroying traditional music instruments and beating the musicians. Ronald Reagan peers from his grave, with approval, for he rose to power by going after Hippie. He and Thatcher led the Fox Hunt.

Ronald Reagan believed UFO’s existed, and even wanted the U.S. Military to prepare for an invasion with his Star Wars plan. He had the pilot for Air Force One chase a UFO near Bakersfield.

“President Reagan’s second UFO sighting happened in 1974 while he was Governor of California. Just one week after the sighting, Reagan told the story to Norman C. Miller, then Washington Bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal. He said, “I was in a plane last week and when I looked out the window and saw this white light. It was zigzagging around, so I went up to the pilot and asked, “Have you seen anything like that before?” The surprised pilot replied, “Nope.” I said, “Let’s follow it!”

“We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light. We followed it to Bakersfield and all of a sudden, to our utter amazement, it went straight up into the heavens. When we got off the plane, I told Nancy all about it”

This is not a environmental program to save Earth. This is a program to save the people ‘The Chosen Family of Man Who Care about the Earth’. If America can spend two trillion dollars bringing “God’s gift of freedom to the Iraqi people” – who violently reject this gift – then it can spend a trillion dollars on establishing the Caretakers of World Beauty. Before the T.V. show ‘Ancient Aliens’ that claims alien artist rendered all our artifacts, there is Jessie Benton, the daughter of the famous artist, Thomas Hart Benton, contacting these alien Bohemians……….Star Vagabonds!

The Bush family Presidents failed to prevent the rise of ISIS in two Iraqi wars! The Republican Party that once championed environmental causes instigated by the Benton family, now hate the environment, and deny global warming for religious reasons that will end up doing more damage then ISIS. The world would be a better place without the Republican Party. Concerned Americans can donate to The Chosen Family of Earth, instead of half-crazed evangelical candidates that pray for the End Time and Tribulation.

A week ago some people mocked me and banned me when I put forth the idea of making Pebble Beach a National Park. Now, thousands are calling for most of California’s coast be made a National Park, and all oil pipes and drilling – removed!  So far, the Channel Island National Park where my grandparents camped, is not affected.

The album is a narrative concept album that tells the story of a counter-culture revolution against the oppressions of “Uncle Samuel” and a plan to steal a starship from orbit and journey into space in search of a new home.

The spill occurred along a long, rustic coast that forms the northern boundary of the Santa Barbara Channel, home to a rich array of sea life. Whales, dolphins, sea lions, seals, sea otters and birds use the waters between the mainland and the Channel Islands, five of which are a national park surrounded by a national marine sanctuary.

In 1817 Joseph sent Louis Mailliard back to Europe to retrieve a cache of diamonds, papers and money he had buried in 1815, with Mailliard’s help, in a foxhole at his Swiss estate of Prangins. The ship on which Mailliard sailed was wrecked in a storm off the coast of Ireland, but the passengers and crew were saved.

A piece of Napoleonic history was auctioned off Sunday, near Paris, for $6.4 million.

After an intense bidding war, Napoleon Bonaparte’s cavalry sword changed hands within the Bonaparte family.

Discord within the Bonaparte family was the reason the sword was on the auction block. Part of the family did not want to sell it. An unidentified woman who set off the bidding war bought the sword as a gift for her husband, one of Napoleon’s descendants.

Prankster Ken Babbs appeared, along with his partner Gretchen Fetchin and two of their children. Babbs had known the Dead at least since the Acid Tests; he was then living with his family at the Dead’s warehouse/studio by Hamilton Air Force Base in Novato, and working as the caretaker there.

In January 1969, the Dead and some of their family & friends went out to Olompali to take a group shot for their upcoming album Earthquake Country. They’d taken photos of just the band, but that wasn’t quite what they had in mind; they wanted more of a “family” portrait – women, children, animals, a communal feel. Some girls from the Olompali commune were invited to join them, and they arranged themselves in front of a picturesque tree on a hillside above the main house. Pigpen, then the most well-known face in the group, sat in front, while the rest of the band mingled with the crowd.

The photo was taken by Tom Weir (no relation to Bob), a San Francisco photographer. The Dead had also used him to take the back-cover photo for Anthem of the Sun – if you look up other photos of his, he has a recognizable style that they must have liked: low-angle circular images, set in nature, taken with a wide-angle lens. (He also did album cover shots for the Steve Miller Band in ’68 and Shades of Joy in ’69.)

The people in the photo are surprisingly random – perhaps whoever was available that day.

A half-dozen girls from the commune sat in the photo. The McCoy sisters, Noelle Barton, and Siobhan McKendrick were the daughters of the commune’s founders (Don McCoy, Sandy Barton, and Sheila & Bob McKendrick, not pictured). Maura McCoy and Sheri Jensen sat by Garcia; Sheri’s sister Rhonda held Mickey’s horse Snorty for him. She had been teaching the other girls at Olompali how to ride horses:

The Blacks and Burdells[edit]

In 1863 the land and adobe house passed from James Black to his daughter Mary (Black) Burdell and her husband Galen Burdell, a wealthy dentist.[3][5] Mary’s son James transformed Olompali into a country estate, he built a 26-room mansion with a formal Victorian-style mansion that incorporated the foundations and rooms of Ynitio’s adobe house.[4][6]

Jesuit retreat, commune and state park[edit]

The land and estate was eventually sold by the Burdell family to Court Harrington. Harrington in turn sold it to the University of San Francisco, to be used as a Jesuit retreat.[4][5]

“During the 1960s, the University of San Francisco sold Olompali several times. Each time, the buyers defaulted and the property reverted to the university. The most famous tenant was the rock band Grateful Dead. During the Dead’s brief stay it became a gathering place for San Francisco’s rock musicians, including Janis Joplin and Grace Slick.”[4]

In 1967 Don McCoy leased Olompali, and started a hippie commune there called The Chosen Family.[7] By February 1969 the Burdell Mansion had been destroyed by an electrical fire, a fatal car wreck had been caused by the commune’s loose animal, narcotics raids had been conducted by authorities, and Don McCoy had been placed in a mental ward.[8] Two small children then drowned on the commune, after which the residents were evicted by their Jesuit landlords.[9] Finally, in 1977, the State of California purchased the land and turned it into the state park.[4][5]

The Battle of Olompali was a skirmish on June 24, 1846 between a force of Mexican soldiers and Sonoma rebels waving a flag with a bear on it. It happened near Ynitia’s adobe house. A Mexican soldier was killed by the Bear flaggers, the Mexican-American War cranked into high gear, California became part of the United States, and the bear image became the state symbol. – See more at: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/38103#sthash.mPyFaPUD.dpuf

Hippie Nirvana In 1967, the property was leased by Donald McCoy Jr. using money from his wealthy family. For a few months the Grateful Dead lived there and would perform concerts in front of the mansion. The ranch appears on one of their albums, and pals such as Janice Joplin and Grace Slick were loyal ranch visitors. A collective known as the “Chosen Family,” a creation of Don McCoy, transformed the property into the prototypical hippie commune, pursuing their love of the land and their fellow humans. According to local historian Susan Stompe, they became known in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park for the fresh baked bread they distributed freely, in old coffee cans, prepared using an outdoor oven at the ranch. It was the “Summer of Love.” The “Chosen Family” peaked at about a hundred residents, including children, during their tenancy from 1967-69. – See more at: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/38103#sthash.mPyFaPUD.dpuf

During the 1960s the Valley became a magnet for “Flower Children” from San Francisco, who set up camps and other unconventional abodes in the hills of San Geronimo Valley, much to the horror of many Valley residents.

In 1972 a Countywide Plan was proposed for adoption by the Marin County Board of Supervisors, and was adopted in 1973, emphasizing low density and the preservation of open space, rural areas, and agriculture. Also in 1972, Lagunitas resident Jean Berensmeier was informed that growth was a-comin’ to the Valley, based on the 1961 Valley Master Plan. Discovering the 1961 Master Plan, she organized a community meeting to review the Plan and the proposed Countywide Plan. The ad hoc Planning Group was thus born, and worked for five years to create a new Community Plan that met the goals of the 1973 Countywide Plan, preserving the rural character of the Valley. Gone were the 5,000 new homes, the Civic Center, the shopping center, the heliport, and the freeway. Instead, boundaries were set around the four villages so the remaining land could be preserved for its rural character, and for open space and agricultural use, with only a spattering of homes outside the village boundaries. The San Geronimo Valley Community Plan was adopted in January 1978.

Soon after adoption of the Community Plan a major subdivision was proposed that included 165 houses on 1,600 acres of land, along the entire south side of the Valley up to the ridge. After five years of controversy and community input, a maximum of 134 were approved to be built in four phases. In 1995, lack of sales provided an opportunity for purchase. The County of Marin Open Space District purchased 1,300 acres, leaving a maximum development of 37 homes.
In the mid-1980s, a 411 acre agricultural parcel was sold to ­Insight Meditation West. IMW dedicated lands to the Open Space District, which were added to Roys Redwoods and an agricultural easement was dedicated to MALT. The remainder was used by IMW and renamed Spirit Rock Meditation Center, for lectures, classes and workshops.

The remainder of the collection concerns Joseph Bonaparte (1768-1844), ex-king of Naples and Spain (known as the Count of Survilliers after 1815), and other members of the Bonaparte family. These papers were accumulated by Louis Hypolite Mailliard (b.1795), who acted as secretary to Bonaparte and later served as executor of his estate. Mailliard was assisted in his duties as executor by his son Adolph Mailliard (b.1819). The Mailliards were also appointed the executors of the wills of other members of the Bonaparte family subsequent to the death of Joseph Bonaparte.

When Joseph Bonaparte arrived in the United States in August 1815, he was accompanied by four people, including his secretary Louis Mailliard. Mailliard served Joseph faithfully for 36 years and became his closest confidant. In 1817 Joseph sent Mailliard on a hunt for buried treasure in Europe.

A Swiss treasure hunt

In 1817 Joseph sent Louis Mailliard back to Europe to retrieve a cache of diamonds, papers and money he had buried in 1815, with Mailliard’s help, in a foxhole at his Swiss estate of Prangins. The ship on which Mailliard sailed was wrecked in a storm off the coast of Ireland, but the passengers and crew were saved. Mailliard stopped in Brussels, where – as instructed by Joseph – he tried to persuade Joseph’s wife Julie and their daughters to come to America. Julie demurred, saying her physicians told her she could not stand the sea voyage.

Mailliard continued on to Switzerland and presented himself to a man named Véret, Joseph’s financial administrator. Just as he assumes a disguise for his mission to Europe in Napoleon in America, Mailliard was disguised as an Englishman, complete with a red wig and a fake accent. This was convincing enough to deceive Véret, who laughed when Mailliard revealed his identity.

The two agreed that Mailliard should pose as an English speculator who wanted to prospect for coal at Prangins. Véret hired two unsuspecting workmen to help with the digging. Mailliard instructed them to start at some distance from where he knew Joseph’s treasure was buried. Gradually he brought them closer, and finally to the exact spot, where he had them dig only to a certain depth, after which he dismissed them. That night, he returned with Véret to remove the final layer of dirt and uncover the iron box. Back at Véret’s house, they opened the lid and inventoried the contents against a list Mailliard had brought with him. After drying out the parcels, among which were 16 diamonds worth approximately five million francs, they ascertained that nothing was missing. Mailliard returned to Point Breeze with the treasure. (2)

Joseph Bonaparte’s “right hand”

Louis Mailliard stayed with Joseph until the latter’s death in 1844. Joseph clearly thought highly of him. He wrote to Julie:

I cannot do without [Mailliard]; he is my secretary, my intendant; he is my right hand. (3)

Mailliard kept a journal, which is held at the Yale University Library in New Haven, Connecticut. There are some extracts in an excellent article by Peter Hicks in Napoleonica. La Revue, entitled “Joseph Bonaparte and the ‘Réunion de Famille’ of 1832-33.” Focusing on Joseph’s return to Europe in 1832 and a family meeting in London in 1833, Hicks reports how Mailliard noted the division between Joseph and his nephew Louis-Napoléon (the future Napoleon III).

We don’t see the same for our cause in France. That is unfortunate for the cause. (4)

Mailliard also made clear that Joseph thought little of his brother Lucien:

Lucien is all imagination but without perseverance, changing all the time. (5)

Mailliard was the executor of Joseph’s estate. Joseph noted in his will:

I here declare that no man has more right to my confidence and esteem than Mr. Louis Mailliard…. I would like to show my attachment to him by a great legacy: but his modesty equals his fidelity. I know that what I am about to give him will satisfy him. I bequeath, then, to Mr. Louis Mailliard, the farm of Groveville, near the village of the same name, of about 250 acres, more or less, such as it is, and as I bought it…. This farm, situated in America, forms part of the domain that I have designated for the above. I give and bequeath equally to Mr. Louis Mailliard, six thousand dollars in stock of the Union Canal, of Pennsylvania. (6)

Joseph also left Mailliard an annual lifetime income of $400, a gold watch, and a miniature portrait of himself in the uniform of his guard. He left Mailliard’s son, Adolphe, stock in the Union Canal Company and his silver toilet articles.

Once Louis-Napoléon was on the throne in Paris, Louis Mailliard was instrumental in getting Joseph’s remains returned to France in 1862 (Joseph had specified in his will that he wanted to be interred there). Mailliard retired to Mortefontaine and died in 1872 at the age of 77.

In 1846, Mailliard’s son Adolphe married Ann Eliza Ward, the sister of Julia Ward Howe, author of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Adolphe died in California in 1890.

The castle of Mortefontaine[1] was bought by Joseph Bonaparte, elder brother of Napoléon Bonaparte in 1798. The Convention of 1800 (also known as the Treaty of Mortefontaine), a treaty of friendship between France and the United States of America, was signed here in 1800. Here again were negotiated the preliminaries of the Peace of Amiens on March 25, 1802.

The park is the site of the oldest surviving house north of the San Francisco Bay, built in 1776 of adobe bricks by the chief of the Olompolli band of the Coast Miwok tribe.[2][3] It is California Historical Landmark #210.

The chief’s son, given the Spanish Mission Indian name of Camilo Ynitia (alternatively spelled ‘Camillo’), was the only Californian Native American in Northern California to confirm and keep a large Mexican-era land grant in the post—Mexican Cession U.S. era.[3]

An Elizabethan English silver sixpence minted in 1567 was discovered in the park by archeologists, indicating that villagers may have had contact with Sir Francis Drake, or with people who had traded with the early English explorer.[5] Many Miwok cultural artifacts have been identified during archaeological studies within the area of the present-day park, indicating this may have once been an important trade and cultural crossroads.

The Institute, a nonprofit organization located in Novato, California, began its research program in 1999. It is named for Marin County philanthropists Leonard and Beryl Hamilton Buck, whose estate funded the generous endowment that helped establish the Institute, and the Buck Trust currently contributes approximately $6 million annually to support the Institute’s work. In May 2007, the Institute established a cooperative agreement with the University of California‘s Davis and Merced campuses to coordinate stem-cell research, a move hailed by UC as a collaboration that “strengthens California’s leadership in stem cell research and moves it forward in an efficient, safe and cost-effective manner.”[2]

 

The Buck Foundation Trust was created by Beryl Hamilton Buck after the death in 1953 of her husband, pathologist Leonard W. Buck. Leonard’s father, Frank Buck, was one of the founders of Belridge Oil. When Beryl Buck passed away in 1975, the bulk of the estate became part of the San Francisco Foundation, about $7.6 million dedicated to “charitable purposes in Marin County” including, in her words, “extending help to the problems of aging.” The Belridge Oil stock in the trust was bought in 1979 by Shell Oil for $253 million, increasing the trust’s value substantially.[8] Attempts by the San Francisco Foundation to spend outside of Marin County resulted in litigation.[9]

When Beryl Buck, a Marin County, California widow, died on May 30, 1975 at the age of 75, she left $7.6 million “for exclusively nonprofit charitable, religious or educational purposes in providing care for the needy in Marin County, California, and for other nonprofit charitable, religious or educational purposes in that county.” For many years, Buck and her husband, a physician, had lived in Ross, a wealthy town in Marin County, just north of San Francisco. When Buck died, the money was mostly invested in Belridge Oil stock. The oil company was privately held and owned land that was rich in heavy crude oil reserves in Southern California. By the time the lengthy probate proceedings had ended, Belridge Oil had been sold to Shell Oil Company and the total amount in the Buck Trust skyrocketed from $7.6 million to $260 million. Under options contained in the will, Wells Fargo Bank and John Elliot Cook, Buck’s attorney, were appointed investment co-trustees, with the San Francisco Foundation (“the Foundation”) having the authority to direct distributions of income. The will also provided that “income shall always be distributed not later than the end of the year following the year of receipt.” This provision would have ramifications for the Foundation’s strategy and distribution of funds. This case study discusses what happened to the Buck Trust money and the constituents involved.

The South Belridge Oil Field is a large oil field in northwestern Kern County, San Joaquin Valley, California, about forty miles west of Bakersfield. Discovered in 1911, and having a cumulative production of over 1.5 billion barrels of oil at the end of 2008, it is the fourth-largest oil field in California, after the Midway-Sunset Oil Field, Kern River Oil Field, and Wilmington Oil Field, and is the sixth-most productive field in the United States. Its estimated remaining reserves, as of the end of 2008, were around 494 million barrels, the second-largest in the state, and it had 6,253 active wells.[1] The principal operator on the field was Aera Energy LLC, a joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell and ExxonMobil. Additionally, the field included the only onshore wells in California owned and operated by ExxonMobil.[2]

The Loading Zone was one of the first Bay Area bands to incorporate a horn section into the emerging psychedelic sound emanating out of San Francisco. Formed in Oakland in 1967 by keyboard player and vocalist, Paul Fauerso, the Loading Zone opened many a show at the Fillmore, supporting acts like Cream, Big Brother & The Holding Company, the Grateful Dead, and many others. From the Berkeley psychedelic-rock band, the Marbles, Fauerso recruited both guitarists, Pete Shapiro and Steve Dowler. The rhythm section of Bob Kridle and George Newcom held down the bottom end, forming the core group. Though rooted in R&B, the group also veered off into psychedelia, rock, jazz, and electric blues initially. Adding horns to the mix, they paved the way for bands like Tower Of Power. In early 1968, Fauerso placed an ad in the San Francisco Chronicle seeking a new lead vocalist, resulting in Linda Tillery joining the band just prior to them signing with RCA Records. Tillery was the key ingredient; a charismatic singer who became the focal point on stage and her powerful voice provided much of the band’s identity.

This morning, I googled Alcohol Justice and was blown away. AJ is funded by the Buck Trust that is managed by the grandson of Leonard Buck, Robert Buck, who founded the law firn of Heisinger, Buck, and Morris who were appointed by Judge Richard M. Silver to handle the probate of Christine Rosamond Benton.

Bob Buck is the President and principal owner of Del Monte Aviation. Mr. Buck acquired and redeveloped Monterey’s fifty year old Del Monte Aviation in early 1996, using his more than five thousand pilot hours as a guide.

Mr. Buck’s development of Del Monte Aviation followed many years of activity in real estate development, agribusiness and oil production. He is a founding partner of the Carmel law firm of Heisinger, Buck and Morris. Mr. Buck is active in charitable endeavors, now serving as Vice Chairman of the Buck Institute in Marin County, California, a medical research facility specializing in the problems of aging.

He was the founding president of the Frank and Eva Buck Foundation, which grants college scholarships in Northern California and has been on the Board of the Jeffers Tor House Foundation in Carmel for many years.

The Buck Institute is America’s first independent research facility focusing solely on understanding the connection between aging and chronic disease. “Our mission is to increase the healthy years of one’s life,” says its president and CEO, Brian Kennedy, Ph.D. “At a time when people over 65 will soon outnumber children under five, finding a way to slow age-related diseases and disorders and extend productivity must become a priority,” he adds.

Alcohol Justice is a San Rafael, California-based non-profit advocacy, research and policy organization, describing itself as “the industry watchdog.” The Marin Institute was renamed and re-branded as Alcohol Justice in 2011; it was originally named The Marin Institute for the Prevention of Alcohol and Other Drug Problems .[1]
In 2006, Alcohol Justice shifted it focus to the practices of alcohol corporations who produce, distribute, retail and advertise alcoholic beverages. Until 2006, Alcohol Justice focused strictly on alcohol harms and environmental prevention strategies. These strategies included reducing the hours during which time alcohol can be sold, increasing the size of warning labels on alcoholic beverage containers, requiring warnings on all alcohol advertisements, restricting the content and placement of alcohol ads, and prohibiting alcohol sponsorship of athletic events.

Iconoclastically expressed in his essay, Oscar Wilde wrote this remark as part of a Platonic dialogue between two characters Vivian and Cyril entitled “The Decay of Lying.” 1. Oscar Wilde goes further and suggests that “Art takes life as part of her rough material, recreates it, and refashions it in fresh forms, is absolutely indifferent to fact, invents, imagines, dreams, and keeps between herself and reality the impenetrable barrier of beautiful style, of decorative or ideal treatment.” Wilde satirically concludes that “Lying for the sake of the improvement of the young, which is the basis of home education, still lingers amongst us, and its advantages are so admirably set forth in the early books of Plato’s Republic that it is unnecessary to dwell upon them here.” He suggests that one of art’s purposes is to lie, and not reveal the realism that so many artists of his time during the late nineteenth century seriously tried to convey.

After looting the Cacafuego, Drake turned north, hoping to meet another Spanish treasure ship coming south on its return from Manila to Acapulco. Although he failed to find a treasure ship, Drake reputedly sailed as far north as the 38th parallel, landing on the coast of California on 17 June 1579. He found a good port, landed, repaired and restocked his vessels, then stayed for a time, keeping friendly relations with the Coast Miwok natives. He claimed the land in the name of the Holy Trinity for the English Crown, called Nova AlbionLatin for “New Britain”. Assertions that he left some of his men behind as an embryo “colony” are founded on the reduced number who were with him in the Moluccas.[18]

The precise location of the port was carefully guarded to keep it secret from the Spaniards, and several of Drake’s maps may have been altered to this end. All first-hand records from the voyage, including logs, paintings and charts, were lost when Whitehall Palace burned in 1698. A bronze plaque inscribed with Drake’s claim to the new lands – Drake’s Plate of Brass – fitting the description in his account, was discovered in Marin County, California but was later declared a hoax. Now a National Historic Landmark, the officially recognised location[19] of Drake’s New Albion is Drakes Bay, California.

Japanese golf tycoon Minoru Isutani may have been vanquished at Pebble Beach, but now he’s back.

Contrary to rumors of his financial demise, Isutani’s corporate entity, Cosmo World, is still twitching in Los Angeles, where the controversial developer is forging ahead with plans to carve a championship golf course out of an ecologically sensitive wetlands tract.

He is also fresh in the mind of the FBI, which is investigating Isutani for money laundering.

Isutani is the reclusive entrepreneur who lost a staggering $340 million when he bailed out of his investment in Pebble Beach golf courses early last year. Humiliated, broke and hounded by persistent allegations of a shady background and questionable business practices in Japan, he appeared to have closed shop in America and gone home for good.

But later this month, Isutani faces a critical hurdle in his efforts to obtain a federal environmental permit for the $50-million golf course he wants to build on an expanse of rocks and scrub at the mouth of Big Tujunga Canyon.

 

History of the San Geronimo Valley
by Brian Dodd and Jean Berensmeier

Settlement and Development
Rafael Cacho, a military ­officer and friend of General Mariano Vallejo, was the first person to hold title to the San Geronimo Valley. On February 12, 1844, he was granted the 8,800 acre Rancho Cañada de San Geronimo (The Valley of Saint Jerome) by the Mexican government, in acknowledgment of his loyal service as a Mexican citizen. Cacho lived in the Valley with his wife and children, grazing cattle and horses, until his finances forced a sale in 1846 to Lieutenant Joseph Revere, who purchased the rancho for $1,000 and an interest in a very small ranch in Napa. Revere, a naval officer and grandson of Paul Revere, had served under General Vallejo, and had released the beleaguered general from imprisonment at Sutter’s Fort. Revere had discovered the Valley while hunting elk, and immediately determined to make it his own. He wrote:

The Canada of San Geronimo is one of the loveliest valleys in California, shut in by lofty hills, the sides of which are covered with redwood forests, and pines of several kinds, and interspersed with many flowering trees and shrubs peculiar to the Country. Through it flows a copious stream, fed by the mountain brooks; and the soil in the bottomlands is so prolific, that a hundred bushels of wheat to the acre can be raised with the rudest cultivation and other crops in corresponding abundance.

San Geronimo Gate WayJoseph Revere retained ownership of Rancho San Geronimo for only four years, and then sold it to Rodman Price for $7,500. Price returned to New Jersey, where he was elected Governor, and hired Lorenzo White, a 49er gold miner, to manage Price’s cattle operation on the rancho. For many years the rancho was known as White’s Valley, and White’s Hill still bears his name. Title to Rancho San Geronimo was then sold several times, finally, in 1854, to Adolph Mailliard, whose father was Louis Mailliard, “natural son” of Joseph Bonaparte, King of Spain and Naples, and elder brother of the infamous Napoleon Bonaparte. After the family’s exile from Spain, Louis Mailliard retrieved from Switzerland a strongbox filled with the family’s jewels, and brought the treasure to their new home in New Jersey. Adolph Mailliard purchased the rancho, to celebrate the birth of his son, Joseph, for $50,000, a mighty sum considering it was purchased a mere eight years earlier for $1000.Wood acre Gate

Adolph Mailliard and his wife, Annie, set out to establish a grand estate, building their home of 18 rooms and 11 fireplaces near Castle Rock, in today’s Woodacre. Annie’s aunt described it as “an unremarkable house with a deep veranda all around and small rooms with high ceilings.” Her sisters pitied her isolation, and visitors from the East “were to wonder how Annie could put up with straw matting on her floors, awkward servants and austere furniture, but she did.” In fact, Annie loved her house and her Valley, and refused to ever leave. Annie’s sister, Julia Ward Howe, author of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and an active abolitionist and suffragette, would often enjoy relaxing at the Mailliard’s home in the Valley during her travels.

Early in the second half of the nineteenth century Adolph Mailliard transferred title to tracts of 400-600 acres each to James and Thomas Roy in San Geronimo, and to James Dickson and Calvin Dickson in Woodacre. Little other division of the rancho occurred through the end of the century.

Earily LagunitasIn 1895 Annie Mailliard died of breast cancer in the home she loved so dearly. Her husband died a year later. Their home became the clubhouse of the Woodacre Improvement Club in 1924. The building burned in 1958 and was replaced, where it continues to serve the Club’s members and the Valley community.

In 1905 and 1906 the Mailliard heirs subdivided much of Lagunitas, and in 1912 they sold their remaining interest in San Geronimo Valley real estate to the Lagunitas Development Company, which subsequently subdivided Forest Knolls, San Geronimo, and Woodacre. Most of the homes built prior to World War II were used as summer cabins. In 1925 San Geronimo had 20 families that “swelled to 30” in the summer. After the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, offering easier access to Marin County, and with the coming of World War II, when Sausalito shipyard workers needed housing, many summer cabins became permanent ­residences.

Following World War II, little changed in the Valley, but in April 1961 the Marin County Board of Supervisors adopted a Master Plan proposal for the Valley that envisioned 20,000 new residents, and 5,000 new homes that would cover the Valley’s northern and southern hillsides, up to and around Kent Lake. The land around Spirit Rock was proposed to be the site for a civic center, fire station, shopping center, heliport, and multifamily residences. A freeway was proposed to come from San Anselmo over White’s Hill and through the center of the Valley, with an interchange that would cross into Nicasio Valley. During the next ten years only the golf course and a few homes adjacent to the golf course, on San Geronimo Valley Drive, were ­developed as elements of that 1961 Master Plan.

There are no names on the photos Murray sent me. The people have been anonymous for a long time. I look at the photographs of the man with the long chin and high forehead, and I see myself. Is this the face of my lost ancestor, William Oltman Stuttmeister, who played the violin in the Oakland Symphony, owned esoteric books, then, turned his back on his family and moved to the Geronimo Valley – because he had no male heir, no one to carry on the fine new culture he planted in the City by the Bay?

William Stuttmeister retired to the Geronimo Valley a disillusioned man, who played a rare violin, and left his Stuttmeister-Janke legacy to his housekeeper. And then he is dead, his remains put in the vault that I went to visit with my daughter and grandson.

William August Janke, the son of Carl August Janke of Belmont, lived in a Victorian house at 320 Haight St. a a block and a half from Fillmore St. Carl founded what may be the oldest theme park in America that catered to members of the Odd Fellows who lived in San Francisco. Carl Janke hired a special train to bring people to his theme park modeled after a German folk town and beergarten. Carl owned the Belmont soda works and sold a drink that may have contained cocaine. Carl made a jail for his town because folks got out of hand. Consider the Haight-Ashbury that was the haven for the Hippie Movement, that got out of hand. It became a theme-park that attracted folks from all over the world, and was the focal point of the war on drugs.

JANKE – in this city, Nov. 22, 1902 at his residence 320 Haight St. William August Janke, beloved husband of Cornelia L. Janke, and beloved father of Mrs. W.O. Stuttmeister and Carl and W.E. Janke, a native of Hamburg Germany aged 59 years. Internment, Laurel Hill

“According to Belmont Historical Society records, Dorothea and Carl August Janke sailed around Cape Horn from Hamburg, Germany, in 1848. After landing in San Francisco, they settled in Belmont in 1860″

I found Carl and Dorothea (also and Doretta) are buried at the Union Cemetary in Redwood City.
