Assistant Professor of Engineering General research interests are biological and bioinspired fluid dynamics and imaging techniques for fluid flow measurement.
Studies the exchange inherent in contact zones—geographic or imaginative spaces—and the strategies and mechanisms through which different cultures encounter, accommodate and conflict with each other. Interested in uncovering culturally fraught representations of difference, which include gender, race, and religion. Fun fact: Dadabhoy can speak varying degrees of five languages. Assistant Professor of Computer Science fall Research explores why machine learning works from a search and dependence perspective and identifies information constraints on general search processes.
Research investigates the affective dynamics of intimacies and solidarities across race, gender, and nation in a large, predominantly LGBTQ church in Toronto, Canada. Other research topics include citizenship, difference and affect. Fun fact: David is working on a book that examines how the Star Trek franchise reflects the geographies of race, capitalism and colonialism.
Fun fact: Shuve is a trivia buff whose team once competed on Canadian TV. Hawkins conducts research in the field of atmospheric chemistry. She studies how atmospheric particles in urban settings like smog are transformed as they age, specifically in fog and cloud water.
These particles impact the temperature of the earth. Her work is largely concerned with organic compounds in atmospheric particles which in Los Angeles come primarily from fossil fuel combustion. She actively collects particle samples in her lab, which can be transported to Claremont from all areas of the Los Angeles basin and can be formed from cars, industrial processes, wildfires or wave breaking.
Using analytical techniques like absorption spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, she characterizes how particles evolve in the atmosphere. This is the second year of this project. On June 19, during a side-scan sonar survey of the seafloor using the Iver3 AUV, the team discovered, among other targets, an object resembling a plane in one of the low-frequency sonar scans. The team then gathered high-frequency sonar scans and video footage of the wreckage; the presence of a plane was later confirmed by Gambin and a team of divers.
Gambin says the year has turned out to be a crucial one for the ICEX. These are just two of the goals of T-groups. An innovation of the National Training Laboratories Institute in , T-groups were widely used in church training programs during the s through the s and have become the basis for many team-building efforts. Werner Zorman, associate professor of leadership and holder of the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Chair in Leadership, employed the use of T-groups in his Interpersonal Dynamics course, designed to help participants explore and understand their impact on each other.
What were some of the most important lessons learned from the class? Beese: I learned that my words and actions have. If I express myself clearly, I can actually help others gain an understanding of their behavior in a positive way. I also learned that asking people how. Tenorio: The importance of communication. I learned. I enjoyed the readings about understanding other people and not assuming intent. Kohl: The class dealt a lot with giving and receiving. In particular, the Situation-Behavior-Impact method is so important in any interaction: telling someone if something affected you, describing the situation and giving the context, describing the behavior without judgment and describing the impact it had on you.
Being mindful about the way you interact and engage with people goes a long way. You have to be intentional about it. Beese: I choose to believe people act under their. This gives me the freedom to ask people how they actually feel when they hurt me.
I did this with my Clinic team, and it was helpful! The class gave me an excuse to practice this intensely every week. She is one of 40 Watson Fellows selected from finalists nominated by 40 participating institutions. First stop: The mathematics major and Goldwater Scholarship recipient began her fellowship research in Brazil in July at the International Math Olympiad. She looked at math culture in different countries, using high school math contests as a gauge.
In some, I was the only girl around, while in others I was part of an all-girl team. Grants for Graduate Research Two recent graduates are recipients of National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships, which recognize outstanding students pursuing advanced degrees in science and engineering. He sought to develop a project that would help him decide if a career in this field would allow him to combine his passion for environmental issues with chemistry research.
Advised by chemistry Professor Hal Van Ryswyk, environmental analysis Professor Marc Los Huertos POM and Hixon Center director Tanja Srebotnjak, Evans began studying the fate of metals after they are introduced into the bioswale, for example, how tightly they bind to soil, how far they infiltrate and how effectively they are absorbed by native plants. A joint computer science and math major, Johnson conducted research with engineering Professor David Harris on open-core processor design verification and with computer science Professor Robert Keller on designing a neural network-based system to improvise jazz melodies.
He is working on a neural network model he developed that can manipulate graphical states, which he hopes will allow neural networks to reason abstractly. This summer, Johnson interned at Cruise Automation in San Francisco where he used machine learning techniques to program self-driving cars. She spent this summer at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, California, where she studied biological and chemical weapons nonproliferation.
This is difficult because exactly solving for crystal energies is only easily possible at absolute zero. For the poster, I applied probabilistic computational methods, called Monte Carlo algorithms, which can extend our knowledge of crystal energies to non-zero temperatures.
Free food of course and a T-shirt were provided, and from the eight contenders, three winning apps were selected. Allows people to describe leftover food they wish to share in order to reduce waste. The duo modified the Android app, which controls an exercise bike that creates and pushes energy into the power grid. Helps the thirsty locate water fountains and water bottle stations around campus. Harvey Mudd College was the top-scoring undergraduate institution in the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition, a prestigious university-level mathematics competition.
Thirty-three HMC students took this notoriously difficult six-hour exam, which requires a unique blend of cleverness and problem-solving skills. The median score for the Dec. The median score for Harvey Mudd students was One of the ICM teams received the highest designation, Outstanding Winner, earned by the top 1 percent: only 14 teams. Also quite impressive is that this Outstanding team consists of sophomores. Their problem involved understanding and modeling the principles of modern urban planning to improve city operation.
They tested their systems on two cities of their choosing, searched for pertinent data and grappled with how phenomena internal and external to the system under study needed to be considered. Here, Perley and her teammates, describe what made their ICM entry stand apart. What was your strategy for tackling the problem?
Did you each have a certain task? What was it? We split up the sections of the project and each worked on separate sections of the report initially. The sections built on each other as we progressed through the report, so we collaborated significantly once we had enough background to develop a solution. What do you think made your solution stand apart? Our solution was less overtly mathematical than we anticipated going into the contest.
We were honest about. We also worked to make the subjective parts as mathematically consistent as possible, so that others who used our model could determine numbers that were reasonable. What are each of you interested in pursuing after graduation? Brown: I plan to pursue a PhD in physics or. Perley: I plan to enter industry in industrial engineering or electrical engineering. Maybe go to grad school for math, maybe enter industry in computer science. It was interesting and fun to apply mathematical concepts and our own research to a problem that we could see in the real world.

Martirossyan, a musician, mentor, proctor and volunteer helped create a community engagement opportunity for those wishing to teach in local prisons. Zuniga, who passed away Feb. After many months of discovery, learning, experimenting, failure and more experimenting, seniors find themselves at the front of a room, sharing the results of their investigation during Presentation Days.
This year, there were a number of projects related to human health that captured the interest of senior researchers. Antibiotic resistance is a growing international concern, in part due to the rapid emergence of new resistances due to concentrated antibiotic use in environments such as hospitals. Such high use creates a strong selective pressure for pathogens to evolve resistance. Okasaki analyzed strategies hospitals can use to slow the evolution of resistance and built a compartmental ODE model to estimate the length of the delay between evolution and outbreak of resistance.
His work supports calls by scientists to decrease the volume of antibiotic use and shows an effective way to delay outbreak. How does the brain encode the spatial structure of the external world? Place fields were discovered when researchers observed the activity of single neurons in rodents and found that some neurons fired only when the animal was in a specific region of space.
Hippocampal neurons, called place cells, become associated to convex regions of space, known as their place fields. When an animal is in the place field of a given place cell, that place cell will fire. A neural code describes the set of firing patterns observed in a set of neurons in terms of which subsets fire together and which do not. Toric ideals are algebraic structures used to study neural codes, and Lienkaemper investigated the extent to which place cell structure can be seen through these toric ideals.
The patch is made of malleable collagen gel and infused with chitosan nanoparticles. Chitosan, a derivative of chitin, is harvested from shrimp shells and may exhibit anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. She sought to characterize the aggregation pathway to better understand the disease and identify potential therapeutic targets. Work involved studying how the aggregates grow, their structure and how sensitive they are to the environment in which they form.
The multi-method approach allowed Pednekar to study the relationship between different physiological measures by gathering converging evidence from various methodologies. Eager to help were 44 Clinic teams made up of student participants.
Here are details about a few of the projects. EDR Inc. City of Hope Liaisons: Dr. Kurt Melstrom, Dr. Yanghee Woo, Dr. Yuman Fong, Dr. Finding important information quickly can be cumbersome. The team explored classification and search techniques for images and text in order to analyze and tag documents. Autonomous vehicle control requires estimating vehicle states from on-board sensor readings.
If some sensors are compromised, estimates may not be accurate. Students implemented a secure state estimator SSE in simulation and validated it in hardware on a low-cost quadrotor. The team showed that the addition of the SSE to the control loop reduces the real-time tracking error of a quadrotor when using measurements from compromised onboard sensors.
Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries use a tethered, expensive system that relies on a single, hot, limited-range incandescent light attached to a lone camera. The City of Hope team designed a set of cost-effective, self-sufficient systems using modern lighting and camera systems that provide improved visibility for surgeons.
Google Inc. One way to collect over-the-air digital television systems data—with regard to signal strength, clarity and orientation across location and altitude—is with a drone. Team members researched and implemented strategies for serializing the full state of a tab in Chromium to suspend and restore it with minimal user-visible disruption. Their strategy also helps prevent loss of information during memory-constrained situations. Since , NGC including acquisitions has sponsored 85 Clinic projects, far and away the most of any Clinic sponsor.
This achievement was recognized with a Milestone Award during the Projects Day program. He now acts as a champion, fostering collaborations between NGC and HMC, including a project relating to selfdriving car technology see No.
Harvey Mudd graduates, with their preparation for innovative problem solving, are a perfect match for our most challenging projects. At 8 cm in diameter, the scale is roughly 20,, He says the real hydrocarbon bearing would be about four nanometers in diameter, consisting of 1, precisely placed carbon gray and hydrogen white atoms.
Freitas is determining how to manufacture this and other molecular machines. Using this information, other nanorobots target and repair specific cells, one by one, while causing no side effects or harm to neighboring cells. These nanorobots enter the body via an injection or swallowed pill, complete their mission, and exit. Freitas then continued on an unconventional path, first earning a law degree and then searching for extraterrestrial intelligence at several astronomical observatories, studying self-replicating lunar factories at NASA, and publishing a financial newsletter featuring an econometric value-forecasting model before settling on nanotechnology.
In my experience, if you want something badly enough and are willing to persist for years or even decades, you can probably attain it. Unlike many researchers, he is looking for big leaps in science and technology, not incremental advances. And he believes his vision of manufacturing nanorobots equipped with the sensors, manipulators, onboard computers and mechanisms for communication and navigation that would enable new medical therapies is more feasible and closer to reality than ever before.
What could be more exciting than that? If you spent a lot of money to go on vacation in Florida, for instance, and the beach is closed for nourishment, that would be very disappointing. Her research informs more than just the tourism industry—the military, fishing industry, oil and gas, marine habitats, coastal infrastructure, meteorology, even insurance and telecommunications are all affected by sediment transport and coastal processes.
Now for her post-doc, Frank tracks individual grains of sand using high-speed cameras and a powerful green laser in a small-oscillatory flow tunnel. Her experiments use fluorescent hollow glass microspheres, about 10 micrometers in diameter, that behave like fluid particles. They re-emit light at a higher wavelength than the laser light, so two cameras with optical filters can differentiate the movement of the microspheres from the sand grains.
A third camera tracks the sand grains. The measurements provide information about how fluid and sand movement are affected by waves. These small-scale processes help scientists understand larger-scale events, such as beach erosion and sandbar migration in shipping channels and ports. There are other applications, too, such as keeping people safe. For example, unexploded military munitions have been lost on the seafloor, and they could wash ashore and explode. Navy manage the problem.
In March, the team deployed three of these smart munitions off the coast of Virginia to measure their response to real storm waves. The Navy will eventually use the data to estimate the motions of real munitions in hopes of preventing injuries. Sediment transport also affects building regulations for coastal infrastructure because sediment makeup affects how much energy waves have when they hit bridge piers and buildings.
And to keep navigational pathways clear, dredging must occur every few years. After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and much of Mississippi, about 90, square miles along the Gulf Coast—including more than miles inland—were declared federal disaster areas. Insurance companies were scrambling to assess the damage and plan future policies.
As much as she loves her current research, Frank is considering moving to larger-scale projects that have a more direct and visible human impact. Frank says she feels prepared for wherever the future takes her. Almost any challenge after that is manageable. The image is part of a study of sand transport by waves. After graduating from Harvey Mudd mathematics , he received his M. He then spent a year serving as a congressional fellow in the office of Senator Sheldon Whitehouse D of Rhode Island, in a program administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
I was always interested in applied problems, and Mudd provided the flexibility for me to pursue that passion. Professor [Andrew] Bernoff, who was my thesis advisor, really encouraged me to focus on the applications of mathematics. That and other coursework from people like professors Jon Jacobsen and Lesley Ward convinced me to move toward problems in applied mathematics. Before I left Mudd, I knew I wanted to work at the intersection of risk analysis and earth science.
At most you can expect them to accept it. The people who are hesitant to embrace the scientific findings around climate change are usually more afraid of the implications of climate science, rather than concerned about the legitimacy of the science itself. In American politics, unfortunately, belief or concern about anthropogenic climate change has become more of a political position than one argued from first principles.
Trying to understand the intersection of science and technology with the broader public sphere is an intellectual challenge. Policymakers face political and economic constraints and are responsible for making deeply moral decisions.
Science is one ingredient in a complex stew. After working on Capitol Hill, I believe that scientists engaging policymakers should be aware of, understand and appreciate these other considerations. Politics and policy cannot be approached like a problem set. We get a lot of questions about the future, like the expected pace of climate change over the next century and what kind of risks that creates. And we get a lot of questions about what we can do about it, like how feasible it is to reduce CO2 emissions dramatically, how quickly can we do that and how much will it cost, and what do we think are the right ways to do it.
At the Niskanen, we try to fight that entrenchment. The real power of science—and this extends beyond climate change—is that compelling evidence dislodges you from your prior beliefs. Climate science gives us plenty of evidence that we should be paying attention. The rejection of climate science is mostly evident in the Republican party.
I work at an institute that has deep policy roots on the right of center. It makes a big difference when it is us, compared to somebody from the left or an environmental organization, talking to Republican policymakers. We show that you can be happy with the fruits of capitalism, believe markets do good, embrace new technologies and still regard climate risks as worthy of our attention. We have a directly measurable one. Before the Niskanen Center and some of our allies entered the conversation, the popular understanding of the GOP as a wall of climate denial was fixed.
As a result of our work, a lot of members of Congress have started to look carefully at what climate change might mean and what they might do about it. With Republicans in charge of both Houses of Congress and the presidency, they are taking a lot of actions to try and undo what the previous administration did on climate, and they are getting a lot of questions about what they plan to instead.
Some of them will want to come up with answers. Will your Center encourage the president to reverse his decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement? So I try to find opportunity and routes forward instead of roadblocks. I actually think that a lot of what we see is positive. Regardless of my mood, the climate will change. The falling costs of clean energy have been spectacular. The march toward climate action in the states and globally—Washington, D.
Climate change is a long-term problem that needs long-term management, and my belief is that it always will look more daunting than it will turn out to be. After all, who knows better what makes outstanding alumni than the alumni themselves? The Harvey Mudd College Alumni Association Board of Governors Selections Committee reviewed nominations from peers and determined the recipients of the honors, which recognize significant contributions to science, impact on Harvey Mudd College and service to society.
The Board of Governors selected seven alumni to receive the Outstanding Alumni Award, recognizing sustained and effective commitment to improving society while exemplifying the HMC mission. Morrison, administrative assistant in the Department of Physics, celebrated her 30th work anniversary in May.

Three parties of emigrants had left Missouri at about the same time, the Flournoy train, the one attacked by Indians and what was called the Ohio train. The last consisted of forty men without a woman or child among them. There were two Indians in sight in an elevated position, signaling to the band that led in the attack and informing them of the movements of the whites.
The Ohio train rushed in from the rear on horseback and soon reached the Indians. The wagons of the Flournoy train were placed in a double row and the party advanced as rapidly as possible. After robbing the women of their jewelry and taking as much food and clothing as they could lay hands on, the Indians escaped and no one was injured.
The Flournoy train followed the route to the crossing of the Portneuf, which runs into the Snake river, and then traveled to the south, crossing the Raft river. As they followed its course they came to that remarkable creation of nature, the Thousand Spring valley, containing those famous soda springs which vary in temperature from boiling hot to ice cold and which cover an area of several square miles.
Proceeding through what was afterwards called the Landers cut-off, they came out on the Green river and followed its course to St. Mary's river. After passing the three Humboldt lakes they 1 were warned by a note tacked up by the roadside of danger from Indians. Two men had been killed and a little farther on the body of an Indian was found lying in the road. At the foot of the last lake two roads separate, one leading to the Carson river and the other to the Truckee river. The party followed the Truckee road and about September 17, , camped where the Donner party endured their sufferings and where some met their tragic deaths in They could see plainly where the trees had been cut down and limbs cut off of others ten or twelve feet above the ground, showing how deep the snow must have been when they camped on it.
Later he took up a claim on Poor Man creek, finding dirt which paid him thirty dollars a day with pick and pan. After working the claim for a month the heavy snow drove him out and he went back to Nevada City, where he spent the winter.
Next spring he found a claim from which. In company with three other miners he engaged in prospecting on Kanaha creek. They struck a claim where they took out fifty dollars a day. As soon as their grub was gone they went back to Nevada City and brought out twelve hundred pounds of supplies on seven pack horses.
They found their claim had been jumped, so they struck out down the creek and struck another claim even richer than the first. On July 4, , the four of them took out over six hundred dollars. They averaged about one hundred dollars a day. My father's partners became dissatisfied and thought they could find a richer ground, so he bought them out and worked the claim until late in the fall of Downieville, the nearest post office, was twelve miles distant by mountain trail.
He worked on a hotel and was paid ten dollars a day. After the hotel was built he went to Sacramento and from there to San Francisco, where he bought a ticket for Panama. He had to pay sixteen dollars for the use of a mule to ride twenty-six miles across the isthmus to connect with a boat. After he had ridden about two-thirds of the way he overtook a miner, who offered him eight dollars for the use of the mule for the remaining eight miles, so father walked the rest of the way.
He had to pay a fare of ten dollars on a rowboat which took him to the Atlantic side of the isthmus. The natives were having a revolution and told the Californians to keep off the streets so they wouldn't get hurt. However, the Americans wanted to see what was going on, so one of them was killed, as well as a number of natives.
The American consul sent out to the Cherokee and Ohio, which were anchored in the stream, and got a brass six-pounder and an iron cannon. He put these so he could sweep the street and told the natives that if they fought any more or killed any more Americans he would turn the cannon loose, so they decided to quit fighting. He bought a steerage ticket for New York for fifty dollars.
The first cabin ticket was seventy-five dollars. After he got on the boat he paid the purser five dollars extra to sit at the first cabin table and have a cabin like the first class passengers. The Ohio was a sidewheeler and there were about two hundred returning gold miners aboard.
At Havana they transferred to the Georgia for New Orleans. In the Crescent city he paid sixteen dollars for a ticket to St. Louis and made the trip of about twelve-hundred miles on the Patrick Henry. At St. Louis he took passage on a small boat called the Lewis F. Linn, for Brunswick, the great tobacco trading point on the Missouri, traveling with Washington Leach, who had been his companion in the mines of California and on the returning sea voyage.
At Brunswick he hired a rig to drive to Linneus, where he had left mother. When he arrived there he found that his father-in-law had sold out and that mother had gone to Jive with Uncle Newton. He hired a man to drive him out to the Newton place.
He bought a house and lot for three hundred dollars and got a job as carpenter at a dollar and a quarter a day. In the party were father's cousin, Ambrose Newton, who brought his wife and three children. He had two wagons, with four yoke of oxen to each, and was accompanied by three young men, who came along to work for their board.
Father had one wagon, three yoke of oxen and two cows. In his wagon were himself, mother, Sarah, the baby, and a young man named Washington Ward, who went along to work for his hoard. The members of the train chose father as their captain because of his previous experience in crossing the plains.
The emigrants drove to St. Joseph, Missouri, and thence up the river, which they crossed at Council Bluffs. They took the south side of the Platte. A large party of Pawnee Indians accompanied them almost to Ash Hollow. There my father and Mr.
Wiley went on a hunting expedition. Father killed a big buffalo and they loaded their horses with meat. When they were hunting a hail storm came up which was so severe that the cattle couldn't face it. They turned around and drifted with the storm. On the Bear river in Utah six saddle horses were stolen. Father lost a good horse. He said that when he and Fowler were looking for the horses they met an Indian on a cayuse,while his squaw was mounted on a big roan horse.
Father had a rifle with inlaid silver work and the Indian tried to take it. Father pulled out his Colt revolver and the Indian changed his mind, and the last father saw of him and the squaw they were making their horses go as fast as they could.
The next day the party arrived at Steamboat Springs, where an Englishman had a trading station. After crossing the Malheur river they went down the Snake and struck Burnt river at a point where Huntington was afterward built. They passed through the Powder River valley below the place where Baker City is now located and there father suffered from blood poisoning, which endangered his life. After coming into the Grande Ronde valley they passed Medical lake and in the Blue mountains stayed over night at Lee's encampment, now Bingham Springs.
Then they proceeded down the Wild Horse through what is now the Umatilla Indian reservation, finding Indians there who were raising corn and potatoes. After reaching Deschutes they made their way down Ten-Mile creek and thence to Tygh valley.
They passed through the Barlow tollgate and down Laurel Hill, soon afterward coming to the Big Sandy valley. On September 9 they reached Foster's famous ranch and on the 11th crossed the Willamette at Portland on a capstan and two horses. In father and Fred Flora took a contract to get out timbers and build a barn for Captain Doty in Yamhill county. Father next built a granary for Mr. McLeod on Tualatin plains. They paid him seven dollars a day and he took his pay in flour, which he sold in Portland.
From Tualatin plains he moved to the Long Tom, in Beaten county, where he bought, for three hundred dollars, a quarter section. Forty acres of the tract had been fenced and there was a good house on the place. Father bought a land entry of one hundred and sixty acres for one hundred and twenty dollars and took up the adjoining quarter section. The first loom on the Long Tom was constructed by father, who built it for Mrs.
He was paid forty dollars for the job. Ferguson wove homespun cloth. He bought a new wagon, a span of mules and ninety head of cattle. He hired John Florence to drive the stock over the Barlow trail to the Dennis Maloney place, near the present site of Dufur. Father traded our place to Mrs. Upton for two large mares, Pet and Pigeon. Afterward father moved to Eight-Mile creek, purchasing a farm from "Big Steve" Edwards, and there mother died in the fall of , leaving two sons and two daughters, one a baby less than a year old.
The hard winter of nearly wiped father off the map financially. He had only thirty head of stock left when the snow went off in the spring. Susan Griffin, my mother's sister, died shortly alter we children went there. Father and Fred Flora had started in the spring of with a herd of cattle for the Orofino mines in Idaho. My sister did the housework. When J. Broadwell bought the place my sister Sarah and I stayed with him for two years.
My brother Willie went to Idaho with my father, who purchased a mine in the Boise basin and later moved to Rocky Bar, in Alturas county, that state. He was absent two years and brought home fourteen hundred dollars. He built a mill on Fifteen-Mile creek near the Meadows, also owning a mill on the Columbia, opposite Wind river, and this he later sold to Joseph T.
While operating the plant he built a small steamboat to handle the lumber. After disposing of his mills father worked for a time at his trade and aided in constructing the shoe factory in North Dalles. In father married Mrs. Elizabeth Herbert, a widow, who had two children: Mrs. Jane Sherer, deceased; and George A.
Herbert, now a resident of Baker, Oregon. The mother of these children passed away at The Dalles and father's death occurred at Cascade Locks, Oregon, in My sister Sarah, the oldest of the family, was born in Missouri in On May 10, , she became the wife of William Frizzell, and her demise occurred in at Cascade Locks. My brother William was born in Benton county, Oregon, in and is now living in Oakland, California. I was the third child and my full name is Daniel Lycurgus Cates. My sister Susan was born February 14, , in Wasco county, Oregon.
She became the wife of W. Wilson, a well known attorney of Portland, Oregon, and died February 14, Cates attended the public schools at The Dalles and one of his instructors was Professor S. From until he was in the employ of his father, who at that time was operating a saw mill above Cascade Locks, where the town of Wyeth is now located. His lumber yard at The Dalles was managed by Daniel L.

Agricultural progress in the Columbia River Valley has received marked impetus from the enterprising spirit and systematic labors of F. Clausen, a pioneer wheat grower of Wasco county and one of its large land owners.
Having accumulated a sum more than sufficient for his needs, he is spending the evening of life in ease and comfort and resides in an attractive home at The Dalles. He was born February 1, , in Kolding, Denmark, and his parents, Nicolai and Karen Clausen, were life-long residents of that country. His father's demise occurred in and the mother long survived him, passing away in They had eight children, four of whom attained years of maturity: F.
Clausen received a common school education and laid aside his textbooks at the age of sixteen, as his assistance was needed on the home farm. His country was engaged in war with Germany, which took the province of Schleswig-Holstein as indemnity from Denmark.
The family lived near the boundary line dividing the two countries and two brothers of F. Clausen served in the Danish army. Being unwilling to swear allegiance to Germany, he left his native land and on April 7, , sailed from Hamburg on a vessel which bore him to New York city. He then purchased a ticket for San Francisco, California, and for a period of four years was engaged in dairying near Sacramento.
In partnership with his brother James, he operated a wheat ranch in the Sacramento valley for two years and then decided to migrate to Oregon. Selling his interest in the ranch to his brother, he came to The Dalles in the spring of and soon afterward filed on a homestead on the Deschutes river, twenty miles southeast of the town. He proved up on the land and later secured a timber claim.
As fast as his resources permitted Mr. Clausen increased his holdings and is now the owner of three thousand acres of land in Wasco county. A tract of one thousand acres is devoted to the growing of grain and the balance is used for pasture and stock farming. Endowed with keen powers of discernment, Mr.
Clausen was the first man to recognize the fact that grain could be produced in this locality and the old cattle and sheep raisers were averse to the idea, saying that the land could be utilized only for grazing purposes owing to the dryness of the soil. In he planted his first crop of wheat, which was destroyed by grasshoppers, but the next season he had better luck and in forty-five years of farming has had only one failure.
His equipment is up-to-date and the fields are divided by well kept fences. A modern house has been erected on the ranch, which is further improved with substantial barns and other outbuildings. The place is well irrigated and water from the spring is pumped to the house and other buildings. Clausen follows diversified farming and has found that the best results are obtained by summer fallowing. The soil yields good crops and he keeps about fifty head of horses for the farm work.
His cattle and hogs are of high grade and he owns about one hundred and twenty-five head of stock, which he allows to run in the wheat fields after the grain is harvested. Every detail of the work has been carefully planned and the ranch has proven a profitable investment because it is operated on an economic basis. Clausen is a firm believer in scientific methods of a culture and has demonstrated their value as factors in productiveness. In he leased the ranch to his sons, James and Otto, who are successfully managing the place and also own valuable stock farms.
Since his retirement Mr. Clausen has lived at The Dalles in a desirable home, which he purchased in , and during the busy season supervises the work on his farm. He has proven his faith in the future of The Dalles by judicious investments in real estate and is a stockholder in the Wrentham and Columbia Warehouse Companies, while he also owns a half-interest in two substantial business blocks, which were recently erected in the city.
It was during their honeymoon that Mr. Clausen made the trip to Oregon, traveling to The Dalles in a wagon drawn by four horses. Theirs proved an ideal union, which was terminated by the death of Mrs. Clausen on October 17, In their family were eight children, all of whom were born on the old homestead in Wasco county and received liberal educational advantages. Arthur, the first born, died at the age of six years.
James is married and has one child, Edna. Cora is deceased. Edna completed a course in The Dalles high school and was graduated from a nurses' training school maintained by one of the largest hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio. She is anaesthesian at The Dalles Hospital and also acts as housekeeper for her father.
Otto is married and has two children, Fred and Virginia. During the World war he enlisted in the United States Engineers Corps, becoming sergeant of his company, and later was promoted to the position of chief engineer. He spent two years overseas and is now filling a responsible position in Chicago, Illinois.
Emma supplemented her high school education by attendance at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, from which she was graduated. For two years she was a student at the University of Washington and is now dietician at Dornbacher Hospital in Portland. Clara, the youngest child, died at the age of seven years. His fraternal relations also extend to the Woodmen of the World. For eight years he was one of the commissioners of Wasco county and during his tenure of office the county built and paid for the finest courthouse in the state, with the exception of the one in Portland.
A strong advocate of educational advancement, Mr. Clausen was a member of the school board of his district for twenty-four years and has always evinced a keen desire to cooperate in movements for the general good. A man of stable purpose and marked strength of character, he has sown wisely and well and his life has been a succession of harvests. For nearly a half century he has resided in Wasco county, where he has a wide acquaintance, and enjoys to the fullest extent the esteem and confidence of all with whom he has been associated.

John W. Collins' first work was in a general merchandise store in his home town, but he did not find the pursuit to his liking and remained in that employ for only thirteen months. He acted in that capacity for six years. In he determined to start out in business on his own account and having saved considerable money from his earnings and made many friends in the trade, he looked around for a location and after visiting The Dalles at once decided to cast his lot in the "cherry town," and renting a store, established business here.
After paying his rent and equipping his place he had left as a working capital just one hundred dollars, yet by he was the owner of the only wall paper and decorating concern in the city and was occupying a handsome store on the main business street, with a stock of wall paper and paint fully paid for and worth seven thousand dollars.

He enjoys the high regard of his brethren in these orders and has won a well deserved reputation as a reliable and progressive business man and valuable citizen. Among the most interesting features of the Oregon Daily Journal are the articles of Fred Lockley, who wrote the following account of the life of John B.
I asked of Mr. McLoughlin sent him up to Stuart lake in British Columbia, to bring down the furs from their post there. He was given command of ten three-ton boats. He piloted the leading boat himself and the others followed the lead of his boat. These boats made the round trip each summer from Stuart lake to Fort Vancouver. Coming down the Columbia, they shot the rapids at the cascades, but on the return trip they had to make a portage there.
They carried their loads around the cascades at what is now Cascade locks and towed their boats or carried them around the swift water. At the big eddy, sometimes called The Dalles rapids, they made another portage, carrying their loads clear beyond Celilo falls. They put their boats into the river above Celilo and paddled them to the mouth of the Okanogan, where they put their trade goods on pack horses and took them over the divide to the waters of the Frazier river, where they had boats in which they took the goods to Stuart lake.
Father stayed with this work for some years - in fact, until , when they transferred him to Fort Walla Walla, now called Wallula. Spaulding down the river to Fort Vancouver. This was immediately after the killing of Dr. Marcus Whitman, Mrs. Whitman and the other white people at Wai-lat-pu mission. The Indians fired at my father and the other two men from the bank but did not hit them. They brought the news of the massacre to the Willamette valley, and soon the whole valley was humming with excitement like a hive of angry bees.
My father and Champagne joined their own people from French prairie to go up to Wai-lat-pu to punish the Indians. They fought with the volunteers from French prairie until the Cayuse war was over. She was at Dr. McLoughlin's mill on the island at what they sometimes called Willamette falls when I was born on April 27, , and when I was a few weeks old she returned to our place here.
My mother's name was Sophia Berchier. She pronounced it "Bushey. She lived to be ninety-four years old. When she was coming here by the old Hudson's Bay trail my brother Ed, who retired from the Portland police force recently after forty years of service, was born. The Indians attacked the party when Ed was one day old, so mother had to grab him up, catch her horse and get away from there as fast as the animal could travel.
In the fall of he purchased from the Hudson's Bay Company a boat which he operated on the river between The Dalles and Fort Vancouver. He took emigrants from The Dalles to Oregon City while the men of the party drove their cattle overland to the Willamette valley. Father had the contract to transport the soldiers from Vancouver to The Dalles in , when the United States government built the fort here. After this for three years he stayed on his land at Crates Point and farmed the place.
In the summer of he operated his boat between Celilo and Wallula. Father acted as pilot on the first boat than ran from Celilo to Wallula and thence to the mouth of the Snake river. I believe Captain Gray was skipper of the boat. After serving as pilot on this river for a while father returned to his ranch, later going to the newly discovered gold mines in Idaho, near where Lewiston now is.
Father and mother had fourteen children, seven of whom are now living. In 1 was riding for Ben Snipe, whose horses ranged all over the Yakima country and along the Columbia. He had about twenty thousand head of cattle.
In my horse fell with me and broke in a lot of my ribs, so I came to The Dalles and went to work fur John Michaelbach, who ran a butcher shop here in those days. In my brother Ed and I purchased the shop. Ed soon went on the Portland police force.
I ran the butcher shop for some years and sold out when I was appointed a member of the police force here. He was day man and I had the night shift. There were thirty-two saloons here then. Yes, I have had to take guns away from hundreds of men. You see, when they get drunk they hardly know what they are doing and they frequently get ugly and pull their guns.
If I didn't take the gun away they might kill someone, or someone might shoot them in self-defense. I served on the force over twenty years. Yes, I have lots of friends. The lawbreakers and bootleggers don't like me, but the wolves and coyotes don't like a watchdog, and for the same reason. Yes, when Gibbons, the city marshal was shot and killed I was appointed in his place. Did I ever have any fights? Look at the knuckles of my right hand. I couldn't tell you how many times I have broken my knuckles fighting with drunken men or gangs of men who resisted arrest.
No, I never used a gun or a billy. One morning at about five o'clock I was called to a saloon to stop a fight between Frank Summers, a gambler, and a small man. Summers, who weighed about three hundred pounds, was holding the small man with one arm around his neck and beating him with the other arm. I managed to separate the two men and dragged Summers outside the saloon. While I was taking Summers to the jail he promised to behave if I would take him to his room instead, which I did, and left him there.
In the melee Summers lost his hat and a man named Gentry took it up to his room. The gambler told Gentry he was going to get his gun and kill me. Meanwhile I had gone downtown and was told later on that Summers was back in the saloon and boasting of what he intended to do. I returned to the saloon and when I reached the swinging door Summers opened fire. The first bullet hit me in the left breast, an inch above the heart, and penetrated my body.
I grabbed a heavy chair of oak, using it as a shield, and closed with Summers, who fired two more shots before I was able to knock him down with the chair. I took away Summers' gun, handing it to my deputy, who had arrived on the scene by that time, and then fainted from loss of blood. They took me to a hospital and probed for the bullet, but the probe ran clear through me and when they took off my shirt the bullet fell to the floor.
I had to stay in the hospital for over a month. The fight took place at The Dalles in and Summers was sent to the penitentiary for a term of five years. Crate was married.

The subject of thin biography is one of the latter class, and has, almost continuously, since attaining his majority, held official position. He was born in Washington County, Ohio, September 4, His father was of Scotch-Trish and his mother of English descent. He came to Oregon with his parents in , crossing the plains with an ox team and settling in Linn County, near Lebanon, on a donation claim. Two weeks after their arrival the father died, leaving a widowed mother with six children, three girls and three boys, O.
Denny being the oldest of the boys. The responsibility and chief labor of improving the farm and supporting the family devolved upon him and his mother, and, with the assistance of the younger children, they struggled on to the accomplishment of both. Meantime he attended the Lebanon Academy and obtained an education sufficient to qualify him for teaching a common country school. He taught six months and then attended Willamette University, at Salem, for two years.
He then began reading law with Hon. Holbrook, at Oregon City. That gentleman being called East, on business connected with the National Sanitary Commission, of which he was chief agent for Oregon, he prescribed a course for his student, furnished him with text books and sent him to Salem, where he joined a class, consisting of the late C. Curl, Thomas Caton, H. Gehr and William Waldo. The class recited to Hon. Grover, at present United Senator, for one year, when they each entered law firms.
Denny went in the firm of Hons. Harding, and after being admitted to the bar in he went to The Dalles, in Wasco county, and began practice alone. In September of the same year he was appointed, by Governor A. Gibbs, County Judge of that county, which position he held one year.

Evarts, then Secretary of State of the United States, without his having made application for the same and without his knowledge. He holds high relations with other foreign Ministers and Consuls to the Chinese Empire and is held in high esteem by them and also by the Chinese authorities.
No higher mark of confidence could be given him than the fact that the whole Pacific delegation to Congress recently recommended him for promotion to Minister to Peking, a position still more distinguished than that which he is now holding. The writer of this brief sketch has known Judge Donny from his early boyhood, and is cognizant of the facts herein stated. His early struggles, his after triumphs, and his still promising future, are themes upon which much more could be written.
