Nearly a half century ago the George Walton family who lived in Keene for. many years sold their property and went to the West Coast, taking the younger children with theirs who afterwards married and made their homes in the West. Last Tuesday the following arrived at Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Sullivan's for a reunion and to call on old friends which they had wished to do for so long: Harold Walton from Monroe, N. Y.; Mrs. George Quick (Lulu) from Rotterdam Junction, N. Y.; Dr. Ralph Walton from Mont Clair, N.J.; Paul Walton from Syracuse, N.Y.; Mrs. Lorena Sturgeon from Corvallius, Oregon, and Fremont Walton from Exeter, Calif. To Fremont and Lorena, who hadn't been here for so many years the old Keene was gone and a new one in its place with
many strange faces, new homes and scenic wonders. The old friends were so glad to have the privilege of visiting
with them again and hoping there will not be the span of years before they come to Keene again.

Mrs. David E. Moore Died at Home Here Last Saturday
With the passing of Mrs. David E. Moore at her home on Sixth street last Saturday evening following an illness of three months, has removed one more of those sturdy pioneers of this country whose lives have endeared them to all who knew them. Mrs. Moore had been a resident of Chino since 1894 and prior to that had been one of the first settlers of Phillips county, Kansas.
The deceased was born in Preston, Jackson county, Iowa, on July 23, 1849, to Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Banning and was christened Mercy Malora. She was educated in the common schools of Iowa and as a young woman taught school for two years. On March 14, 1871, at the age of 22 years, she was united in marriage to David Elias Moore, who survives her, and to them four children were born, Herbert, who died in infancy; Walter M. Moore of Visalia, Don E. Moore of Chino and Mrs. Alma Moore-Homan of Chino. Also five grandchildren, Dr. Harold Arnold Moore of Los Angeles, Mrs. Alma Hill of Whittier, Herbert Moore of Pomona, Dr. Clifton B. Homan of Monrovia and Mrs. Marjorie Bonner of Los Angeles. She also had two brothers and five sisters, two of whom survive.
Following their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Moore lived on a farm in Iowa until migrating to Kansas in 1873. Here they made their home for 18 years and then came west to California in 1892, settling first in Pomona for a period of two years before coming to Chino.
The First Methodist Episcopal church of Chino was organized in their home and they faithfully maintained this affiliation, attending the services of their faith as long as health permitted. The deceased was also a member of the Sunset club, an organization of elderly women, and she found great joy and comfort in the friendships formed in that membership.
Mrs. Moore enjoyed a very active, helpful happy life and good health until the past few years when her strength began to fail. She was stricken three months ago, taking a turn for the worst about three weeks ago.
Funeral services under the direction of Glenn A. Henry of the Richardson and Henry Funeral Home were conducted Monday afternoon from the Methodist church with Rev. Elmer S. Andersen, pastor of the church, officiating and Rev. H. E. Hooper of Belevedere, former pastor here, assisting.
Two songs were sung by Mrs. Seth Hastings, Mrs. F. A. Payne, Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Solter, with Mrs. Blaine Van Dusen at the pipe organ. Pall bearers were W. H. Delphey, W. J. Tebo, Edwin Rhodes, W. T. Clarke, W. H. Jorden and G. A. Hillman. Interment was in Pomona cemetery."

34 "We are running before the storm trying to keep the deck free of water. We request that a Coast Guard ship be asked to stand by until we reach port."

THESE WERE the last words from the master of the gypsum freighter Novadoc as she foundered in a raging nor?easter in the Gulf of Maine 66 years ago this month.

The distress call went out in the early morning of Monday, March 3, 1947, from Captain Allen J. Vallis.

Owned by Paterson Steamship Company of Montreal and under charter to the Canadian Gypsum Company, the Novadoc was built and launched in England in 1924 as the Northton.

Prior to coming into service in Nova Scotia, she had been a Great Lakes freighter. Her name, Novadoc, was derived from combining Nova Scotia and the Dominion of Canada.

On March 1 of that year, late on a Saturday afternoon, the 2,300-ton ship had sailed from the gypsum company?s storage plant at Deep Brook on the shores of the Annapolis Basin with a cargo of 4,000 tons of gypsum.

An unidentified woman at Victoria Beach, on the east side of Digby Gap, took a photo of the Novadoc as the ship passed through the gap and out into the Bay of Fundy. The Novadoc and her crew were never seen again.

Among the 24 crew were 13 Nova Scotians. They included three sets of brothers. Jimmie Vroom, 16, and his 23-year-old brother Rob, were from Deep Brook. Jimmie had just signed on as a deckhand. It was his first trip.

A relative, Donald Vroom, now in his 70s, knew both brothers. ?Jimmy was a few grades ahead of me in school,? he recalls. ?Bobbie had already made one or two trips on her.?

The other brothers were John Francis, 22, and William Francis, 18, of Smith?s Cove, Digby County and Chipman and Lloyd Rice, 23 and 20 respectively, of nearby Bear River.

A married couple from Windsor, N.S., Magnus Larsen 45, and his 25-year-old wife, Dorothy, were also aboard. Magnus was a wheelman on the Novadoc and Dorothy was second cook, working the galley with first cook Margaret Eddy, 33, of Admaston, Ont.

A father and son were also crewmembers. Capt. Vallis, 49, of Ville St. Pierre, Que., sailed with his 23-year-old son, Allen S. Vallis, as second mate.

Before loading at Deep Brook on March 1, the Novadoc had spent a short time in Digby where there were early signs of trouble. There, eight crew members quit the ship and were paid off. They had lost faith in the vessel and feared for their lives.

A teenager at the time, Donald Vroom remembers that his grandfather, Harry Burrell, had told him there was also a problem with one of the hatches that sealed the ship?s holds.

?Grampie worked for the gypsum company,? Vroom said. ?He told me one of the holds was staved in and they brought some stuff up from Digby to fix it, but they never had time to fix it completely before sailing on the next tide.

?They only had a short window to load and the captain didn?t want to be delayed 12 hours waiting for the next tide.?

Writer Barry Peters, whose uncle Ralph Peters was one of seven crew who signed aboard to replace the eight who had quit, relates in his book His Spirit Is Still Among Us that a young would-be deckhand saw the ship?s cat jump off and scramble up the wharf while the Novadoc loaded.

And so it was that late on thad day, on a full tide and with a northeast storm brewing, the Novadoc and left Deep Brook bound for Staten Island, N.Y.

?Grampie said that when she left the wharf at Deep Brook, there was only about three feet of freeboard,? Donald Vroom remembers.

As the Novadoc headed out through Digby Gap and into the Bay of Fundy, northeast winds pushed on her stern while 800 miles away, near Cape Hatteras, a hurricane had developed and was moving up the coast.

Winds of 40 to 70 miles an hour, blowing snow, and 20-foot seas were reported from Portland, Maine as the storm worsened.

On Sunday afternoon, the Novadoc was headed into the worst of it.

?It was a violent, violent storm and of course gypsum is heavy and they were warned not to go out, but the captain said take her out anyhow,? said Conrad Franklin of Hill Grove, Digby County, in an October 2000 interview for The Elder Transcripts, a government project to collect historically significant knowledge from elders in a community.

Captain Vallis sent his last message at 2:17 a.m. on March 3, reporting that the ship was foundering in heavy seas, its bulkhead and hatches badly damaged. The vessel was about 25 miles off Portland, Maine.

American Coast Guard rescue forces were sent to assist, but found no trace of the Novadoc or her crew. Over the next two days, three aircraft and two U.S. Coast Guard cutters searched a 10,000-square-mile area between Cape Cod, Mass. and Rockland, Maine but found nothing.

?I think she foundered and all hands are lost,? said Lt.-Cmdr. G.V. Stephanhoff, commander of the cutter Algonquin, which took part in the search.

In July 2005, nearly 60 years after the tragedy, a monument was erected on the Digby waterfront to honour the men and women who perished on the Novadoc.

No trace of the Novadoc has ever been found.

Her sinking and the loss of 24 lives is a nearly forgotten tragedy, but one that parallels the 1970s wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, immortalized in song by Gordon Lightfoot.

9th Farfel Recipient

Department of Biology
Professor of Biology, Faculty Emeritus
College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics

Robert Hazelwood was born in Oakland, California, and received his doctorate in comparative physiology from the University of California at Davis in 1958. He worked at both Boston University’s School of Medicine and the University of California at San Francisco’s School of Medicine before arriving at the University of Houston in 1963.

Dr. Hazelwood’s research focused on certain aspects of diabetes. His research team at the University of Houston worked for a time in collaboration with the Kansas University Medical School, a joint effort that resulted in the discovery of a hitherto unknown hormone produced in the pancreas. Although Dr. Hazelwood is now retired, his influence is readily apparent in the work of his former graduate students, many of whom have attained top positions in industry and academic institutions. These graduate students, says Dr. Hazelwood, were one of the great pleasures of working at the University of Houston. While he misses teaching, he remains busy in retirement, traveling to Thailand during a part of each year—as he has done for the last 14 years—in order to teach at a medical school in Chiang Mai.

Dr. Hazelwood received many honors during his career at the University of Houston, but the Esther Farfel Award was especially meaningful, he explains, because “it rewarded excellent work not in just one aspect of academic life, but in all areas: teaching, research, and community service. Receiving the Farfel meant that I was not overspecialized in one area or another, but rather that I was a complete academician. In that sense, it is a very special award.”
