Two years ago Ed Howard put me in touch with his brother who offered to take me to the Naval Cemetery in the Presidio where my parents are buried. I was not told my father was dead, or, my mother was dying. My brutal father told all my family I was not his son, but, was the product of my mother’s betrayal. Just before he died, Victor Presco admitted he used Wolf Larsen from Jack London’s book ‘The Sea Wolf’ as a model to raise his two sons. I did not go due to three murders. I feared I was walking into a trap, and going against the adage;

“You can’t go home again.”

Three days ago I went home in a Black Panther facebook group Ed and I belong to when I talked about my abusive father who graduated from the San Francisco Midshipman School and served in the Merchant Marines. My mother served in the WAVES. That is Vic on the far right in the pic above. I posted a parody about Captain Victim’s College of Hard Knocks. To see the Naval Research site that Richard helped fund, blows my mind. Here is the gentle approach from a gentle and giving man who had something to do with the placement of a life-size statue of The Lone Sailor’. There is some goo in all men, and I have come home to stand next to this sailor…with my father.

When I beheld a photo of Richard Rosenberg, I exclaimed to myself;

“That’s Rosenberg from Men In Black! Alas, I found you! I am at the core!”

Two of the greatest trademarks in the San Francisco Bay Area, was the Black Panther heraldry, and the Welles Fargo Stage Coach. Then comes the Golden Gate Bridge, and Huey Newton sitting in a baton chair with a shotgun in one hand, and a African spear in the other. Was there a tiny little alien behind Newton’s façade? These two men have had a great affect on Bay Area life. Only Newton is known, and his BRAND is overcoming the world. Did you know the Chicago Black Panthers formed an alliance with the Chicago Hillbillys?

I know for sure Richard wants to talk to me about my kin, Ian Fleming and his uncle, Sea Lord, Caspar John. He also wants to talk to me about how Victoria Bond, and Miriam Starfish, led me to him and his Naval organizations. In my last post where they are heading to the Naval Post Graduate College where Miriam spots her families hero, who is kin to Robert E. Lee.

I suggested many time my Bond book is a Psychic Novel where I receive tips and leads while I take my old man nap. I have arrived at Rose Mountain, and I can see for miles and miles.

The President said he is happy for the riots because they will get him reelected. He has not ill words for the shooter of demonstrators. He said the neo-Confederates in Charlottesville are good people. To see the Black Panthers of Chicago MAKING PEACE with ne0-Cofederate Rednecks, is money in the bank. I am going to try to get a hold of Richard Rosenberg to see if he will help put together a task force that will find the middle ground – and make peace!

When Victoria and Miriam approached the Del Monte Hotel, they both exclaimed at the same exact time….”Osborne House!”

Victoria was like a school girl off to boarding school. She was thrilled they would be staying in the Dali Room that was reserved for special guest of the Navy. On the way to see Dali’s strange creations, Miriam came up short, and stood in front of a glass case.

Oh look! Here’s my and my parents hero!”

Victoria glanced back, and felt faint as the name LEE flashed at her like a neon sign. Creeping towards the display honoring Real Admiral Willis Augustus Lee, she almost fainted – again!

My parents learned to target shoot from Willey. He holds the record for Olympic gold medals. I’ going to shoot at the 2020 Olympics. I got a silver medal four years ago. I want the gold.”

Victoria wandered in a circle around Starfish, in a daze. She had experienced this when she went to Le Rosey, this getting of second hand information from her best friend who was always in the know long before she was.

Rosenberg is a Germanic-language family name and toponym. Its principal meaning is “mountain of roses”, from Rose + Berg. However, as a toponym, in some locations it may have originally meant “red mountain” or simply “red hill”, from rot + Berg. The terminal consonant of the /rot/-/roθ/-/roð/-/ros/ syllable has varied across regions and centuries; there are many variations of the name, including Rosenberg, RotenbergRottenbergRothenbergRodenberg, and Rozenberg. It is a common name among Ashkenazi Jews

Born in Fall River, MA, Richard M. Rosenberg is a former Chairman and CEO of Bank of America who has also held senior positions with Seattle-First National Bank, Seafirst Corporation, and Wells Fargo Bank. He received his B.S. in journalism from Suffolk University in 1952, and his masters and law degrees from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. Barbara Rosenberg, also a Fall River native, is a 1954 graduate of Brandeis University and has earned an M.A. from Harvard University and a Ph. D. from the University of San Francisco.

In lending their vision and financial support to the creation of the Rosenberg Institute for East Asian Studies, the Rosenbergs have offered Suffolk University an opportunity to better understand a region of great strategic and economic importance.

The reason we did it is that too many people on the East Coast, ranging from Washington all the way up to Boston, are so Eurocentric and do not understand that the 21st century belongs to Asia- not that we’re perfect on the West Coast,” Richard Rosenberg says. “So to the extent that Barbara and I can help Suffolk get a better focus on what I believe is the most important aspect of the 21st century, we think we’re doing a good thing.”

There is no doubt in my mind that the world economy in the 21st century has shifted more to China and India than ever before,” Barbara Rosenberg adds. “We need to learn more about the customs, languages and mindsets of the Asian population.  We hope the Institute offers a more globally balanced presentation of the world.”

A $1 million gift to San Francisco State University from retired Bank of America Corp. Chairman and CEO Richard Rosenberg and his wife Barbara will fund a new marine biology institute at the school’s Romberg Tiburon Center.

The Barbara and Richard Rosenberg Institute for Marine Biology and Environmental Science will support an endowment for a spring and fall academic lecture series for the center’s graduate students and the public. It also will fund a biannual public forum on marine biology and related topics.

The center, a Navy base during World War II, houses scientists and students studying San Francisco Bay and its surrounding wetlands as well as the open ocean along California’s coastline and other locales.

“The Romberg Tiburon Center may be one of the better-kept secrets of the Bay Area, but we think it’s the perfect platform to attract great students and great faculty to work on issues in marine biology and the marine environment,” Rosenberg said in a press release.

The Rosenbergs also have funded scholarships for Romberg Tiburon Center students.

“Their generous support will ensure that many generations of researchers, students and citizens have excellent opportunities to understand and protect one of our region’s most exceptional assets — the San Francisco Bay,” San Francisco State President Leslie Wong said.

On October 9, 1873, 15 naval officers gathered at the U.S. Naval Academy’s Department of Physics and Chemistry building in Annapolis to discuss the implications of a smaller, post-Civil War Navy and other matters of professional interest. The U.S. Naval Institute was established as a forum for the exchange of ideas, to disseminate and advance the knowledge of sea power, and to preserve U.S. naval and maritime heritage. Rear Admiral John L. Worden (former commander of the USS Monitor) served as the first president.

In 1874, the Naval Institute began to accept papers and publish the “proceedings” of its discussions which were distributed to the organization’s members, a practice that continues. Two decades later, the Naval Institute Press was created to publish basic naval guides; it eventually expanded to publish more general-interest titles in history, biography and current affairs.

In 1992, the Naval Institute Foundation, Inc., was established to stabilize the organization’s funding.

Having outgrown its offices at Preble Hall, the Naval Institute gave the building to the Naval Academy and, in 1999, renovated a derelict Navy hospital to serve as its new headquarters. The building was named Beach Hall to honor the contributions of Captain Edward L. Beach Jr. (author of over a dozen books including Run Silent, Run Deep) and his father and namesake, Captain Edward L. Beach Sr., who had served as the Institute’s secretary-treasurer.

One was the Young Patriot Organization (YPO), which was based in Hillbilly Harlem, an uptown neighborhood of Chicago populated by displaced white southerners. Many YPO members were racist, and they flaunted controversial symbols associated with southern pride, such as the Confederate flag. But like blacks and Latinos, the white Young Patriots and their families experienced discrimination in Chicago. In their case, it was because they were poor and from the South.

In his short time as a Black Panther leader, Fred Hampton wanted to advance the group’s goals by forming a “Rainbow Coalition” of working class and poor people of all races.

 

 

Assumed to be natural enemies, these groups united in their calls for economic justice. In the Aug. 9, 1969 issue of The Black Panther newspaper, the party’s chief of staff, David Hilliard, admiringly called the Young Patriots “the only revolutionaries we respect that ever came out of the mother country.” Recalling his work with the YPO, former Black Panther Bobby Lee explained that “The Rainbow Coalition was just a code word for class struggle.”

In the end, the Illinois Panthers brought together various elements of the black community, Confederate flag-waving southern white migrants (Young Patriots), Puerto Ricans (Young Lords), poor white ethnic groups (Rising Up Angry, JOIN Community Union, and the Intercommunal Survival Committee), students and the women’s movement. The disparate groups under the coalition’s umbrella pooled resources and shared strategies for providing community services and aid that the government and private sector would not. Initiatives included health clinics, feeding homeless and hungry people, and legal advice for those dealing with unethical landlords and police brutality.

The Romberg Tiburon Campus has supported maritime commerce, naval defense and training, and marine science and education for over a century, and is especially well suited to support the interdisciplinary mission of the EOS Center. The changes to the campus landscape and uses over time reflect the rich pre-historic, historic and contemporary environmental legacies of the SF Bay region. Historic artifacts remaining on the Romberg Tiburon Campus are our link to the past, and in telling the stories of those artifacts the EOS Center will document the concomitant changes in society and the environment in a meaningful way, cultivating public interest in our current activities and the campus. Place-based research, interpretation and educational outreach are core practices for marine laboratories and field stations. The Romberg Tiburon Campus is an ideal location for local and regional community engagement on coastal and maritime environmental science, history, and policy. The EOS Center values and appreciates the many different ways that people communicate about these important topics, including through artistic expression, and will invite collaborative proposals and opportunities to support projects with artists, writers and storytellers interested in community engagement on themes related to our place-based legacies or current research projects.
