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."

48 1986-87 ? Robert Hazelwood
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.?
