When my late sister saw the painting I did of Rena Easton in 1971, she took up art and became know all over the world as ‘Rosamond’.
Frank Buck was the co-founder of Beverly Hills. It was named after the Beverly Plantation in Massachusetts, where my Wilson Ancestors came to found a new world colony.
“The story begins with the passing of Mrs. Buck’s husband, Leonard, in 1953. Buck was head of the family controlled Belridge Oil Company, which owned valuable assets in the southern San Joaquin Valley. These were left to Beryl, his surviving spouse, who in turn surprised everyone except her most intimate advisors by stipulating in her will (written with Cook’s help) that the the Belridge holdings (then valued at about $11.5 million) should be transferred to the San Francisco Foundation, an organization both she and Cook trusted, to be used for the exclusive benefit of the residents of the place she loved–Marin County.
If Mrs. Buck lived fairly anonymously, her death—and what came with it–caught people’s attention. With oil prices rising steadily, it was generally assumed that the Belridge shares would also rise, leading eventually to a buyout by one of the industry giants that would be willing to pay a nice premium to gain control of its substantial proven reserves—which is precisely what happened in the 1979 acquisition by Shell. Today, due to prudent investing of the proceeds and the luck of the market, the Buck Trust’s core value stands at more than $1 billion”.
John Wilson (c.1588–1667), was a Puritan clergyman in Boston in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and the minister of the First Church of Boston from its beginnings in Charlestown in 1630 until his death in 1667. He is most noted for being a minister at odds with Anne Hutchinson during the Antinomian Controversy from 1636 to 1638, and for being an attending minister during the execution of Mary Dyer in 1660.
Born into a prominent English family from Sudbury in Suffolk, his father was the chaplain to the Archbishop of Canterbury, and thus held a high position in the Anglican Church. Young Wilson was sent to school at Eton for four years, and then attended the university at King’s College, Cambridge, where he received his B.A. in 1610. From there he studied law briefly, and then studied at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he received an M.A. in 1613. Following his ordination, he was the chaplain for some prominent families for a few years, before being installed as pastor in his home town of Sudbury. Over the next ten years he was dismissed and then reinstated on several occasions, because of his strong Puritan sentiments which contradicted the practices of the established church.”
Robert Buck owns the law firm that stepped into to be the Special Executor of Rosamond’s creative legacy after Vicki Presco refused to serve. Robert is connected to the Buck Trust and Institute that is right out of a science fiction novel in regards for searching for the Fountain of Youth. Robert also owns Del Monte Aviation that flies in professional golfers to play at Pebble Beach. This beats anything Thomas Pynchon could dream up. This is what Heather, the sixteen year old daughter ‘The Gold Digger’, was after, Fame, Fortune, and an unending fountain of booze. Heather’s ambition was the be the Most Popular Girl in the World. This is why Linda Comstock told my minor child to un-invite me to her High School graduation. Linda and Flip had major plans for this minor.
I kept telling my daughter; “All’s well, that ends well!” As it turns out the Buck Trust established Alcohol Justice because the Buck family suffered from alcoholism. In Rosamond’s probate are pleas to Morris to respect the family miracle of sobriety, thanks to Alcoholics Anonymous.
The end of Christine and my story is Flip toasting Tyler Hunt in a bar.
“Truth is stranger than fiction!”
Phil and Penny Knight are handing parts of Eugene over to Science. The People do not want more Science. We want what is ours. We want our share. People Science is what we want, and demand! Screw DBOX and their Illusion Box Simulator. We want – LAND! Free Land! We want filthy rich people to give us – FREE LAND! We want FREE EDUCATION!
I will being contacting Kamalah Harris and see if she wants to give a speech on Franklin Street.
Who paid for the clean-up? Did Robert Buck hide the history of his ancestor? How many seabirds were shot dead in Marin County? Who paid for the shotgun shells?
San Francisco Bay, 1937
