Notes for GEORGE STOCKING:

George appears in the book: History of Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1630-1877 with a Genealogical register by Lucius R. Paige, H.O.Houghton & Co., Boston, The Riverside Press, 1877.

On page xvi, in the Key to the Plan of Cambridge in 1635, #43, George Stocking is listed.  In 1642, the lot belongs to William Manning. There is also a map of the town, with the location of everyone's lot.  #43, George was on the corner of Crooked Street and Spring or Mount Auburn Street.

There is a wonderful discussion of  reasons why the Hooker party(.of which George Stocking was a member,) left Cambridge:

 

pg. 30-33

"Mr Hooker and Mr. Cotton were deservedly in high esteem ; some of the principal persons were strongly attached to one of them, and some to the other.  The great influence which Mr. Cotton had in the colony inclined Mr. Hooker and his friends to remove to some place more remote frtom Boston than New Town.  Besides, they alleged, as a reason for thier removal, that they were straitened for room, and thereupon viewed divers places on the sea-coast, but were notn satisfied with them. (Hist. Mass,. i.43)

"Very  probably such jealousies and rivalries (between who was going to run the church..Mr.  Hooker, Mr. Cotton and others) had some influence upon the removal of Mr Hooker and friends.  It is known that Winthrop and Haynes (governer of Mass. who allowed Hooker and his group to leave) differed in judgement upon public policy, the former advocating a mild adminsitration of justice and the latter insisting on strictness in civil government and military discipline...The Antinomian controversy, which did not culminate until a year or two later, had commenced as early as 1635; in which Hooker and Coton espoused opposite side,and were among the most prominent clerical antagonists.  Up to the period of removal, it seemed doubtful which party would prevail.  Both parties were zelous, both lauded their own clergymen, and soke harshly of their opponents.  It is not surprising, therefore, that Cotton and Hooker should feel that their close proximity was irritating rather than refreshing...Howerver doubtful the cause, the fact is certain, that the greater part of the First Church and Congregation removed from New Town(the name of Cambridge back then); more than 50 families went to  Hartford, and other elsewhere."  George Stocking is listed is listed as an inhabitant in 1634, who removed to Hartford.

 

George is also listed again in the genealogies, on page 663.

Stocking, George, (otherwise written stockine) was an early inhabitant, and res. 1635 at the S.W. corner of Holyoke and Winthrop Streets.  He rem. with Hooker to Hartford, where he was Selectman in 1647.

The Stocking Ancestry by Hobart

 Stocking

George Stocking immigrated from England in 1633 on the ship Griffin. On his will, his name is signed with an X.  When George reported for jury duty in 1657, his name was recorded as "Geo Stocken" and on the Quarter Court Record, HArtford, Ct., in 1662, it is written as "Georg Stockim".  On his will his name is written George Stocking.  He lived to be 101 years old.  His will, dated Jul 15, 1673, named Anne his wife, his daughter Lydia Richards, the wife of John Richards, daughter Sarah Olcott, the wife of Samuel Olcott, daughter Hanna's husband Andrew Benton and their children.  Hanna was deceased.  His son, Samuel, moved on to Middletown.

Anna and George emmigrated to Cambridge, MA in 1635.  They built a house at the corner of the present Holyoke and Winthrop Streets.  George was made a free man on May 6, 1635.  In 1636, he joined Rev. Thomas Hooker's group and travelled through the wilderness to Ct, to found Hartford.  He received 20 acres on the south side of the road from George Steele's.

CHAPTER VI.

The prosperity of the cloth-making population of the 16th century may be regarded as the primary reason for the prosperity of the agricultural population to whom they looked for their food supply. At the end of Elizabeth's reign (1603) Western Suffolk with its poorer soil was almost entirely given up to sheep fanning and the comments of Daniel Defoe in his "Tour of the Eastern Counties" in 1732 are also illuminating. With the decline of the Wool Trade, the agricultural workers were the first to suffer and there is evidence of continuing poverty among the inhabitants of Glemsford. The succeeding centuries tell of a constant battle to preserve the prosperity of the parish. The first records to show the increase in the number of poor people in Glemsford are found in the Survey of the Manor of Glemsford made in 1658. These show that from 1591 there was a spate of wills which left charity for the poor of the parish. Thomas Gardiner 10,8,1591 John Allen, Clothier 15,4,1598 and Agnes Gardiner 12.5.1600 all left money for the "deserving poor". Agnes Gardiner's will has a clause by which money was left to be distributed "to widows and maids". This has continued to the present day, Others followed, William Barrell of Chequers Lane 13.3.1609, George Hicke 26,1.1624, Richard Scott, and Edward Scott Senior 26.18.1642, John Pooley 1651 and John 2O.10,1657. George Hicke among other bequests left "6d for the minister to preach a sermon on Good Friday and 3d to the poor". In 1658 William Dodd, Clerk, gave money for the erection of Stocks and left some land, now Bible Meadow, for buying Bibles for poor children. On July 22nd 1695 the feoffees or trustees were Henry Kedington of Egremont Street, Henry Kedington Junior of Brook Street and Ambrose and John Bigg, These charities and others of later date are now known as the Glemsford United Charities. They are administered by Trustees nominated by the Parish Council with the Rector of the Parish, These details from the Manor Rolls show that there was a realisation of the needs of the poor and incidentally show that the practice of leaving money for the saying of Masses for the Dead had now ceased.

A list of the leading clothiers of Glemsford in this period (1558 - 1640) were John Howe, John Gueret, John Frost, Thomas Fyrman, John Allen, William Abbitts, John Biggs, George Howe, Ambrose Brage and Abraham Kenington. They were makers of Suffolk Broadcloth and there was a cloth known as "Gleynforth" which took its name from Glemsford.

The second piece of evidence to show the decline of Glemsford was the fact that the last Coroner for the Parish of Glemsford, George Collingwood, was appointed in Elizabeth's reign and the parish officers had to submit to the authority of the county officer when Roger Kedington became Chief Constable of the Hundred on 12th March 1645,

Further evidence from the area around shows how the wool merchants made strenuous efforts to preserve their livelihood. A Glemsford clothier attended a meeting in Bury St. Edmunds in 1610 when the clothiers, woollen weavers and tailors were incorporated into a Company framed after the model of a London Livery Company. Among other things, the Bury Corporation controlled the engagement of workers, journeymen and apprentices, and the payment of wages, Glemsford joined in this effort to regulate the Wool Trade in lest Suffolk but the Corporation did not last long as the formation of these companies had an adverse effect upon the free trade in Wool. Within 20 years many wool merchants in Suffolk were made bankrupt, some had migrated to Holland and the wool industry was transferred to Yorkshire and the West Country. This migration from Glemsford took place between the years 1772 to 1796, Its chief cause was the invention of the steam powered loom for the wool industry and the development of the Industrial Revolution around the coalfields of the North.

The Poor Laws were closely bound up with the history of the Cloth Industry in Suffolk. By the reign of Charles II (1660 - 85) Suffolk stood twelfth among the counties of England in the average amount of its poor rate, and in this century the old broadcloth industry of Suffolk went into decline. That Glemsford suffered we cannot doubt. At about this period the manufacture of finer woollen cloths, worsteds and even stockings was introduced to the area, chiefly at Sudbury. There is no direct evidence that these new draperies were made in Glemsford but it is safe to assume that they were. However, a century later the village was still impoverished as the Poor Relief Records show. The Rate for the poor in 1772 amounted to £678 when the population was as high as 2,400 inhabitants. By 1792 the rate had risen to £1,102 with a sharp rise to £2,129 in 1796. It appears they had their worries ovsr rate increases in other days beside our own!

Dear Deb

 

I have looked at the following indexes to see if the family names Stocking (variants) and Merryll (variants)appear.

 

"Military Survey of Babergh Hundred 1522 (this is the administrative district which included Glemsford and surrounding Parishes. There was nothing for Stocking but four entries for various Meryll.

 

"Suffolk in 1568 Subsidy Return" Nothing for Stocking but Meryll mentioned several times

 

"Suffolk in 1524 Subsidy Return" Several entries for Stockyng

 

Forham Omnium Sanctorum (Fornham is a Parish close to Bury St Edmunds)

Thomas Stockyng in goods 10s

William Stokyng (mentioned as labourer)

William Stokyng in goodes £4

Thomas Stocking mentioned as paying subsidy in Mildenhall (to the north west of Bury St Edmunds)

 

The Parish Registers for Glemsford begin in 1550, they can be searched on you behalf for any entries for the surname Stocking, this would come under the terms of our research service for which there would be a charge.

 

I also looked at the index for Will of the Archdeaconry of Sudbury there are quite a few for this family name;

"George Stocking and his four sons were all actively engaged in the making of gunpowder at the time of the Revolutionary War.  Their mill was located on a sixteen acre tract of land on the north side of Roaring Brook, about 1500 feet east of Main Street in South Glastonbury, Ct.

Their gunpowder was made of charcoal, potash and sulphur.  It was beleived that the charcoal was furnished by Glastonbury residents.  The mill made a heavy grade of powder and was used in very small amounts to ignite the heavy powder in the flintlocks.

On Aug. 23, 1777, this mill was destroyed by an explosion and fire, possibly caused by lightening or from static, if the fine powder was being made that day. The explosion badly damaged a nearby bridge over Roaring Brook, which was never rebuilt.  The brisge abutment and part of the mill foundation was still visible. (1966).

At the time of the explosion, Mrs. Stocking was in the area of Bolton, returning from the outskirts of Boston, where she had been making plans for the delivery of gunpowder to Washington's Army. (Reference: Dr. Lee Whittle's article in the DAR Magazine for April, 1962, pg. 364.)  She had a premonition of what had happened when she heard the expolsion and saw the dark cloud of smoke.  She rushed home to find her husband, aged 50, her sons George 28, Hezekiah, 22 and Nathaniel, 19 had died in the fire but that Elisha had been saved as he was away from the mill on an errand.  The sons that died were, George Jr., Hezekiah, and Nathaniel.

The powder mill was rebuilt and operated for a short time by a Mr. Pitkin and a Mr. Woodbridge.  Before the mill closed down, these men had made 50 tons of gunpowder.

No records can be found showing where the Stocking family lived during the existence of the mill.  The house that Mrs. Stocking lived in  after the explosion, is still standing and islocated almost across from the South Glastonbury Library on High Street."

 

Eunice was living with Ansel and his family when she died on May 19, 1795, age 67, and is buried in the Still Hill Cemetery of South Glastonbury, beside her husband and thier sons.

Talking about the Congregational Church Sunday School around 1817-1819:

 

"Deacon Rufus Sage and his assistant were the first overseers of the Sunday School.  Thye were followed by William Redfield Stocking as superintendent...."

 

 Talking about the Congregational Church, 1834:

"The Gentlemen's Foreign Missionary Association was organized that smae year with President Dr. Richard Warner., Vice Presdient Israel Russell and Secretary-Treasuer William Stocking.  "The Association" did some valuable work.  It sent out the first missionary to foreign parts from the church - Rev. William Stocking and supported a Bible reader in South India."

 

pg. 96

"Several men of the Congregational Church left Upper Houses to do missionary work.  William Redfield Stocking went to Persia in 1837, where he was ordained in 1841. "

Could this be our William selling liquor?  I doubt it:

 

"After Elisha and William Stocking ceased selling liquor at their stores during the 1830s, no alcohol was sold in Cromwell for some years."

 

pg. 253:

 

Mention is made of a quarry which "north along Mrs. Webber's property and Mrs. Hannah Sevier's land, to the south line of William R. Stocking....(before and around 1854)

 

pg. 278:

 

Speaking of the religious revival around 1890...

"Many joined the church as a result of this revival.  Such activities influenced many Cromwell residents to enter the religious and missionary fields, and several were active during the 1850-1950 period.  These included: ...William Redfield Stocking, William R. Stocking (his son), Annie Woodman Stocking (his granddaughter)..."

"Upper Houses;" married, Dec., 1836, Jerusha Emily Gilbert, born Nov. 5, 1809, in Easton, Ct., daughter of Ezra Gilbert and Rebecca Minor of Colebrook, Ct. He studied at Monson Academy, Monson, Mass., and was nearly fitted to enter Yale College when an urgent call went out from the missionary house in Boston for teachers for the Sandwich Islands, whereupon he gave up further study and offered himself to the American Board as a teacher for these islands. Soon after there was a call for a principal for the boys' seminary in Persia, and Mr. Stocking was chosen to fill this position. In Jan., 1837, he was set apart as a missionary teacher to the Nestorians, and went with his wife to Oroomiah, Persia. He was for a while the principal of the boys' seminary, but soon took charge of the village schools, and kept that work as long as he lived in Persia. He was also the treasurer of the mission for fourteen years. Having preached for some time in the village churches in the native language, and in an acceptable manner, he was ordained, April 18, 1841, in the Nestorian Church of St. Mary in the city of Oroomiah, by an ecclesiastical council consisting of the other missionaries. He seldom preached in the English language, saying, when asked, that he was ordained to preach in Syriac. He returned to America in the autumn of 1853, intending to return in two years, but died April 30, 1854, in New York City, and was buried in Colebrook, Ct.

 

Mrs. Jerusha Gilbert Stocking graduated from the Hartford Female Seminary, and taught in Middletown "Upper Houses," where she met her future husband. Immediately after her marriage she went to Persia, where she remained seventeen years, one year of that time being spent on the outward and homeward journey--six months each way. She had wanted to become a missionary from her childhood, and was always very much devoted to the missionary cause. She died June 28, 1892, in Alameda, Cal. Her granddaughter writes: "She lived with us the last seven years of her life. She was the sweetest, most unselfish woman I ever saw. Everyone who knew her loved her. She seemed to create a heavenly atmosphere everywhere she went." Children, born in Oroomiah, Persia:

100. William Redfield6 Stocking (Seth Stocking5, Bethiah Kirby4, John3, Joseph2, John1), born June 24, 1810, in Middletown

 

"Upper Houses;" married, Dec., 1836, Jerusha Emily Gilbert, born Nov. 5, 1809, in Easton, Ct., daughter of Ezra Gilbert and Rebecca Minor of Colebrook, Ct. He studied at Monson Academy, Monson, Mass., and was nearly fitted to enter Yale College when an urgent call went out from the missionary house in Boston for teachers for the Sandwich Islands, whereupon he gave up further study and offered himself to the American Board as a teacher for these islands. Soon after there was a call for a principal for the boys' seminary in Persia, and Mr. Stocking was chosen to fill this position. In Jan., 1837, he was set apart as a missionary teacher to the Nestorians, and went with his wife to Oroomiah, Persia. He was for a while the principal of the boys' seminary, but soon took charge of the village schools, and kept that work as long as he lived in Persia. He was also the treasurer of the mission for fourteen years. Having preached for some time in the village churches in the native language, and in an acceptable manner, he was ordained, April 18, 1841, in the Nestorian Church of St. Mary in the city of Oroomiah, by an ecclesiastical council consisting of the other missionaries. He seldom preached in the English language, saying, when asked, that he was ordained to preach in Syriac. He returned to America in the autumn of 1853, intending to return in two years, but died April 30, 1854, in New York City, and was buried in Colebrook, Ct.

 

Mrs. Jerusha Gilbert Stocking graduated from the Hartford Female Seminary, and taught in Middletown "Upper Houses," where she met her future husband. Immediately after her marriage she went to Persia, where she remained seventeen years, one year of that time being spent on the outward and homeward journey--six months each way. She had wanted to become a missionary from her childhood, and was always very much devoted to the missionary cause. She died June 28, 1892, in Alameda, Cal. Her granddaughter writes: "She lived with us the last seven years of her life. She was the sweetest, most unselfish woman I ever saw. Everyone who knew her loved her. She seemed to create a heavenly atmosphere everywhere she went." Children, born in Oroomiah, Persia:

Ezra is mentioned on several pages in the section titled, "Memories of Colebrook, 1868-1877, by Jane E. Williams Smith, pg. 142-177.

 

pg. 152:

Talking abut the Congregational Church in Colebrook:

"The deacons were Marcus, Grant, Lorrin A. Cooke, William P. Lawrence, George M. Carrington, and Eugene H. Barber.  Deacon Lawrence was also the Sunday School Superintendent and Deacon Cooke Assistant till he moved to Riverton, when EZRA STOCKING took his place.

        MR. STOCKING asked us to bring in one Sunday all the promises we could find in the Bible beginning with A.  We then voted which was the most precious one and that was palced at the head of ur list.  The next Sunday all the promises beginning with B were presented and the choice made and so on to the end of the alphabet.  I remember still those first four letters:  "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, etc."; Believe on the Lord, Jesus Christ," etc.; "Come unto me all ye that labor,", etc.; "Draw nigh to God and he will nigh draw nigh to you."

 

pg. 157-158:

 

"The school (Church school) then had only two terms- the summer term, taught by a woman, and the Winter term, usually by a man...and at the Rock School we had for winter teachers..EZRA STOCKING..I did not attend school the winter MR. STOCKING taught but believe he was well liked."

 

pg. 160

 

"The greatest amusement interest of the years I am recording was the "Band of Hope", which met once a month in the basement of the Congregational Church.  People of all ages were admitted if they signed the pledge and paid their dues.  The pledge was against tobacco, as well as intoxicating liquors but we admitted some mne like Mr. Reuben Rockwell who were tobacco addicts and placed "ex-tobacco" after their names.  "Extobes", we called them.  ...A stage was erected  in the basement of the Congregational Church,....As I remember, MR. EZRA STOCKING was also a prominent member."

 

pg. 163 (Starting pg. 161)

"In the winter parties at the homes of the young people (members of the church and Band of Hope) were given at intervals...."Singing school was another activity of the winter season....One golden evening came the Hutchinson Singers, with their flowing locks and wide open collars and oh! how they could sing!  Another most enjoyable evening was an organ recital by Rev. Rodney Tabor, who had just married Mr. Ezra Stocking's sister, Hattie..."

The New Departure CO. and later Division of General Motors is described on a website of a current company, High Security Power, which is now in the building.  High Security Power has a website called:

 

www.highpowersecurity.com/facility.html

 

"During World War II, the plant became the home of the New Departure Manufacturing Company, which produced ball-bearings.  The company was eventually owned by General Motors.  At its peak, over 20,000 people were employed at the plant.  During much of the plant's life, the plant was powered with an on-site power generation station which also powered other parts of the city.  Stories are told about the plant during this time.  It is rumored that during the war, thousands of ball bearings were stored underneath the parking lot of the plant, almost a whole year's production worth, in case the factory was bombed!  In this case, the company would recover the store of bearings until factory production was reestablished."

Notes for HARRIET HAYWARD STOCKING:

From The Guilford Free Library  67 Park St. Guilford, Ct. 06437

 

"As you know, Elmer Dudley was one of the enthusiatic founders and supporters of the Town Players as long as they were in operation.  And Irving was "the banker" who cared not only for our financial affairs but was involved in many town events.  His sense of humor was contagious.  Barbara was an accomplished weaver with a great sense  of color.  When the bank moved into the old house on PArk. St. she planned a lovely interior decoration with colors and papers to fit the building.

Mrs. Elbert Dudley, the boy's mother, was a member of the Congregational Church and a member of the Church Improvement Society as was my mother.  They were in charge of the May Breakfast one year. Mrs. Dudley envisioned and carried out a lovely spring setting: canaries in their cages, singing, cowslips on the tables (in pie tins) and cheery yellow napkins.  This was remembered for many years.

Life as a Foreign Missionary, by William Redfield Stocking, 2nd.

 

"My three years service in the 34th Regiment Mass. infantry ended July 6, 1865.  I returned to my mother's home in Westfield, Mass, visited relatives in Connecticut, and spent some time in Grandmother Rebecca Minor Gilbert's home in Colebrook, helping with the haying and other farm work.  She was ninety years old and died on the 25th of that month.  I was her only descendent who served as a soldier in the Civil War and she had given me a warm welcome when I visited Colebrook, while waiting to get my discharge papers.  A bit of family history she told me is worth recording.  Her father Simeon Minor living not far from Danbury, Ct. was called with other neighbors to the defense of that town when it was attacked by the British in the War of 1812.  He was captured by the Red Coats and the last word his family received from him he was a prisioner of war on board an English man of war in New York harbor where an epidemic of small-pox was raging.  In all probablility he died there.

 

"During the last week of Spet., 1866, my mother and I attended the annual meeting of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions at Pittsfield."

 

"In the fall of 1869 my good mother followed me to the Andover Theological Seminary where I took the special course of Bible studies under Prof. John Taylor...."

 

Spelled: Urumia, Persia in William's letters.

 

1st mention of Ezra along with other siblings:

 

"On the 15th day of June, 1853, the family, consisting of father, mother, Emily,eleven, Willie, nine, Hattie, five and Ezra, three, started for Trebizond on our way to America.  Emily riding her grey horse, I my white donkey, Hattie and Ezra rode in the comfortable baskets.  The 24th of June was father's forty-third birthday."

 

"When we landed in Boston Thanksgiving week, 1853, almost five and one-half months after leaving Urumia, we were met at the dock by Charles Stoddard, Chairman of the Prudential Committee of the American Board, whose brother David Tapan Stoddard was for many years an associate in the work in Persia.."

 

"We spent Sunday in Ashfield where mother's brother , Rev. William E. Gilbert, was pastor of the Congregational Church.  Going down into Ct. by stage we spent the night in Winsted.  Aunt Eliza Gilbert drove her horse down from Colebrook to meet us; and Tuesdy morning we arrived at Grandma Gilbert's, which was to be our home for several years.  Her three daughters, Ann and Eliza older than my mother, and Rebecca, younger, all unmarried were living at home.  Aunt Ann was the cook, Aunt Eliza managed the garden and little farm, and Rebecca made herself useful in the home and among neighbors.  She also gave us children lessons and from time to time was in the home of her brother, William, the  minister.  She dies at his home in Granby, Ct. about 1860.....

In Dec., my father who was far from well, visited his brother Carey (A boatman who used to take people across the Ct. River in his row boat) and his married sisters, Julia Darrow, Bestsie Wilcox, Hannah Tryon, and MAria Tryon all living in Ct.  His cousin, John H. Redfield, living in NYC invited him to come to his home where he could find better medical attention.  In response to Dr. Redfield's invitation early in the year 1864, father, mother, and brother Ezra ( 4 years old) went down to the big city where he received careful medical treatment.  I can never forget his farewell as he started from Colebrook that winter  mornign.   I rode in the vehicle with the party a short distance and as I left to go back to Grandma Gilbert's he took my hand, kissed me affectionately, and said,"Good-bye, my son, be a good boy and if you live to be a man, I hope you will be a missionary.  That was the last time I saw him in life.  I passed my tenth birthday just a month before his death in New York, April 30th.

 

The stone in Colebrook:

In Memory of Reverend William Redfield Stocking, Born in Cromwell, Ct. June 24, 1810. died in New York City April 30, 1854.  For seventeen years A laborious and successful missionary to the Nestorian Christians at Urumiah, Persia. An affectionate husband, father, and friend, a fathful and able ambassador to Christ.  "For he was a good man and full of the holy Ghost and of faith and much people was added unto the Lord."  "For me to live is Christ, to die is gain."

A History of the

ACS Portland Section

Student Scholarships

 STORRS WATERMAN DONATED MONEY TO THIS FUND.

 

 

1968 - Our Executive Committee decided that each year the Section should recognize outstanding junior chemistry majors resident in the local area, and attending colleges and universities within the area of the Portland Section by scholarship awards to support their senior year studies at these institutions.  Pre-medical students were explicitly excluded from Scholarship consideration.  Scholarship candidacy is established by chemistry department nomination, and evaluated by the Section's Scholarship Committee. The first scholarship was awarded to Loren Brown of the University of Portland. This $500 scholarship, the Sherman Schaffer Award (SSA), was named after Sherman Schaffer, an ACS National Office functionary who was instrumental in helping Harold Zeh, Father James Anderson, Dick van Santen, and other Portland chemists to realize their dream of establishing an ACS local Section in the Portland area. This dream had been realized in 1961.

 

1990-2003 - Generous donations to the endowment for the Harold Zeh Award came from the following Section members, former Scholarship winners and companies (THANK YOU!):

Jeff Altig        Herman Amberg      Robert Anholt (SSA '78)

Anonymous (1)     Bernadine Bonn (SSA '78)      Rod Christiansen

Jim Manual    Pat McDougal Bill Randall

Alan Shusterman   Hal Smith        Joe Shields

Phyllis Zeh    Bill Stein

 

2002 - As an outcome of a trend of increasing scholarship value due to prudent money management on the part of the Section's Finance Committee, and responsive generosity of donors, the Awards are now for the following amounts: $2500 (DVSA), $2000 (HZA), $2000 (JAA).  Since 1968, 85 outstanding chemistry majors have received scholarships from the Section for an aggregate value of $95,350.  See the 2003 Scholarship Award winners here.

  

2003 and onward - It is hoped that in a reasonable period of time, through the generosity of donors such as yourself, the Harold Zeh Fund will be fully endowed at its target value of $84,000.  You can help us reach that target by sending a tax-deductible donation check made out to "ACS Portland Section" and noted "For Harold Zeh Fund".  Please send this check to:
