Pen and ink. Before the telephone, airplane, postage stamp or the web there was pen, and ink. The next step was the printing press and from there books, magazines and newspapers blossomed. Paper, from the tree (wood, dubois) to a beautiful love letter, document or manuscript.

Earl of Stockton is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 24 February 1984 for Harold Macmillan, the former Conservative Prime Minister, just under three years before his death. He was also made Viscount Macmillan of Ovenden, of Chelwood Gate in the County of East Sussex and of Stockton-on-Tees in the County of Cleveland, at the same time, also in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. This title is used as the courtesy title by the Earl’s heir apparent.
As of 2012 the titles are held by Lord Stockton’s grandson, the second Earl, who succeeded in 1986 on his grandfather’s death. He is the son of Maurice Macmillan, Viscount Macmillan of Ovenden, only son of the first Earl, who died in 1984 and was outlived by the first Earl.
The earldom of Stockton and viscountcy of Macmillan of Ovenden were the most recent hereditary peerages created for someone other than a member of the Royal Family, and are the only surviving non-Royal peerages created since 1965.

John ARMOUR McMillan:
Armour/ deJanz, Johns, deJongh, Johnson etc..:
It is generally believed that the suburb is named after Karen Blixen, the Danish author of the colonial memoir Out of Africa; her farm occupied the land where the suburb now stands. Blixen herself declared in her later writings that “the residential district of Karen” was “named after me” And Remy Martin, the developer who bought the farm in 1931 and converted it into residential lots for Nairobi’s fast-growing population, confirmed that he named the neighborhood for Blixen.
The provenance of the name may in fact be more subtly complex. Blixen herself was known to her friends in Africa not as “Karen” but as “Tanne”. The farm, a coffee plantation, was officially incorporated as the “Karen Coffee Company”, and was owned by her extended family, most of whom lived in Denmark. The chairman of the board was her uncle, Aage Westenholtz. Westenholtz may have named the company after his own daughter, Karen.
It is possible that Martin gave the area the name “Karen” because he thought the name of the coffee company came from Blixen herself; he may not have been aware that the farm’s official name was derived from a different Karen. Either way, in 1975, Martin confirmed for Judith Thurman, Blixen’s biographer, that in calling the district “Karen”, he was thinking of the farm’s famous resident.
The suburb of Karen borders the Ngong Road Forest and is home to the Ngong Racecourse. It is also known for its large European population. Karen and Langata jointly form a somewhat isolated area of high-income housing.
Blixen’s home is still standing and is a local tourist attraction. The Nyumbani Orphanage is also located in Karen.

Priscilla Livingston Johnson was born in Glen Cove, New York, on 19th July, 1928. As a student she was a member of the United World Federalists, an organization run by Cord Meyer. After graduating with a master’s degree from Radcliffe College in 1952 she applied to join the Central Intelligence Agency.
According to CIA files she was rejected because some of her associates would require more investigation. The document was signed by Cord Meyer, who was now chief of CIA Investigations and Operational Support. On 17th March, 1953, W. A. Osborne, sent a memo to Sheffield Edwards, head of CIA security, that after checking out Johnson’s associates he “recommended approval.” However, on 23rd March he sent another memo saying that “in light of her activities in the United World Federalists” he now “recommended that she be disapproved”.
In 1953 Johnson went to work for Senator John F. Kennedy. The following year she worked as a translator for the Digest of Soviet Press. In 1955 Johnson moved to the Soviet Union where she worked as a translator for the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. This time the CIA made no objection to Johnson having access to classified information.
Priscilla Johnson returned to the United States in April 1957. The CIA continued to take an interest in Johnson. In a CIA document dated 23rd August, 1957, Johnson was described as being born in Stockholm, Sweden, on 23rd September 1922. It also stated that during the Second World War she was “utilized by OSO (Office of Special Operations) in 1943 and 1944”. John M. Newman has speculated that Johnson was being given a cover story of someone who had a “good security record”.

Douglas was born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, the daughter of Irma May (née Dempsey) and Tommy Douglas (1904–1986), the Scottish-born former Canadian statesman and Premier of Saskatchewan. She attended high school at Central Collegiate Institute (now closed) in Regina. She is the mother of three children: Thomas, from her first marriage, and of twins Rachel and Kiefer Sutherland, from her second marriage (1966–1970) to actor Donald Sutherland.
Nesmith was born at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Houston, in 1942. He was an only child; his parents, Warren Audrey Nesmith and Bette Nesmith Graham, divorced when their son was four. He and his mother moved to Dallas to be closer to her parents, sister, aunts and grandmother. Bette took temporary jobs ranging from clerical work to graphics design, and developed very good secretarial skills, including shorthand and, auspiciously, touch typing. When Nesmith was 13, his mother invented a typewriter correction fluid later known commercially as Liquid Paper. Over the next 25 years she built the Liquid Paper Corporation into a multimillion dollar international company, which she finally sold to Gillette in 1979 for US $48 million. She died a few months later at age 56.

R.H. Johnson enjoyed golf (12 handicap) and played for 26 years in the Bob Hope Desert Classic. In 1973 Johnson won the Classic with partner Arnold Palmer. He was an outstanding gardener and spent every spare moment working outside; everything he planted grew.
Mr. Johnson was a quiet, generous man and he leaves behind his own legacy; The R. H. Johnson Foundation, a non-profit organization formed to support specific projects in the Wickenburg area; the place he came to call home.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Lawrence, first wife Ellamae “Mazie” Douglas and daughter Susan Hauck. He is survived by wife Marjorie and son Lawrence.
In lieu of flowers; the family requests that donation be made to Hospice of the Valley, the Wickenburg Community Hospital or the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts.
Webb was born in Fresno, California to Ernest G Webb, a fruit farmer, and Henrietta S Webb. He dropped out of high school to become a carpenter’s apprentice, and in 1919, he married Hazel Lenora Church, a graduate nurse. In 1920, Webb was a ship fitter, and they were living with his parents and two younger brothers in Placer County, California. At the age of 28, he suffered typhoid fever, and as a result moved to Phoenix, Arizona, to recover.
In 1928, Webb began his namesake company which was a construction contractor. He received many military contracts during World War II, including the construction of the Poston War Relocation Center near Parker, Arizona. Poston interned over 17,000 Japanese-Americans and at the time was the third largest “city” in Arizona. Webb was associated with Howard Hughes and played golf with Hughes, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, and Robert and Barry Goldwater.
A lifelong baseball fan, in 1945, Webb and partners Dan Topping and Larry MacPhail purchased the New York Yankees for US$2.8 million. After buying out MacPhail in October 1947, Webb and Topping remained owners of the Yankees until selling the club to CBS in 1964.
In 1948 Webb was contracted to build 600 houses and a shopping center called Pueblo Gardens in Tucson, Arizona. This was a prelude to Sun City, Arizona, which was launched January 1, 1960, with five home models, a shopping center, recreation center and golf course. The opening weekend drew 100,000 people, ten times more than expected, and resulted in a Time magazine cover story.
Webb also developed a chain of motor hotels under the “Hiway House” name, ‘formal’ hotels called “Del Webb’s Towne House”, and built the Las Vegas Flamingo hotel for Bugsy Siegel. He later owned his own casinos, the Sahara and The Mint in Las Vegas, and the Sahara Tahoe at Stateline, NV.
Webb was elected to the Gaming Hall of Fame in 2000.

ELLADEAN HAYS BITTNER, 89, died June 10 in Anchorage, Alaska, surrounded by her family. She had suffered a stroke five days earlier. Elladean, known as Ellie, was born to Roy and Hazel HAYS February 1, 1919, in Phoenix, Ariz., during the great flu pandemic. She often remarked on why she had no birth certificate: the hospital did not expect her to survive. Ellie grew up on the Hays Ranch in Peeples Valley. Her ancestor, Boone Hays, Daniel Boone’s grandson, drove cattle to California in 1849 and began the family ranching operations, which remain in business to this day. Ellie’s father moved to Arizona in 1912 to start the Hays Cattle Company. He thought California was too crowded.
She studied home economics at the University of Arizona, graduating in 1939. During her time at the University of Arizona, she rode with the U.S. Army Cavalry and was crowned “Aggie Queen.” She was chosen to be a member of Mortar Board, a national honor society. Ellie married William Edward Bittner on August 5, 1944. Bill was born in 1917 in Anchorage and learned to fly in Alaska. With the shortage of pilots during World War II, Bill instructed Navy recruits in Holbrook, Ariz., where he met Ellie. They honeymooned in the territory of Alaska that year, traveling by Alaska steamship to Anchorage to meet her in-laws Catherine and Edward Bittner, and Catherine’s mother Anna Ashton, who had moved from Nome to Anchorage in 1915. There she encountered another breed of Western women – Anna, who had run the Banner Train Station outside of Nome during the gold rush, and Catherine, who won the Nome High School dog mushing race on the Bering Sea in 1914. In 1950, Ellie and Bill moved to Anchorage with their children Catherine, William and Judith. Ellie worked for the Anchorage School District from 1951 to 1964, teaching home economics at Anchorage High School and later at East High School. She started a boys’ cooking class and an early childhood education daycare. Ellie later attended graduate school in early childhood development at Cornell University and Oregon State University. Governor Hickel appointed Ellie to a position with the State Department of Education. In this position, Ellie traveled extensively, interviewing women in remote villages and towns around Alaska and published a study that was a pioneer effort to identify economic opportunities for women in Alaska. Ellie returned to ranching in the early 1970s when she and Bill began splitting their time between Alaska and Arizona. She established the “Quien Sabe” Outfit, in her words a greasy sack outfit, and remained active in ranching until her death. Ellie and her Quien Sabe Outfit were featured in the “Modern Ranching Women” exhibit at the grand opening of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas, in June 2002. Ellie is included in “Hard Twist,” Barbara Van Cleve’s book on Western ranching women. Ellie was involved in many community organizations throughout her life including the Nature Conservancy, Peeples Valley Yarnell Historical Society, and Wickenburg Cultural Organization. She served as chairman of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum and as president of the Yavapai Cattle Growers Association, which hosted the annual Calf Sale at the Hays Ranch. She is survived by her daughter Catherine and son-in-law Senator Ted Stevens; son William and daughter-in-law Michelle; daughter Judith Bittner; granddaughters Angie Cagle and Lily Stevens; grandsons Jonathan, Daniel, William, and Nicholas Bittner; great-grandson William Edward Cagle; sister Margaret Rigden; brother John Hays and sister-in-law Mary Hays; nieces Cynthia Rigden, Anna Mary Rigden, Janie Surgent, Becky Rovey; nephews Charles Rigden and Johnny Hays; and many other beloved great nieces, great nephews and other family members. She is preceded in death by her husband William Edward Bittner and parents Roy and Hazel Hays. A memorial service to celebrate the life of Elladean Hays Bittner will be held later this year in Wickenburg.

Notable achievements by Monsanto and its scientists as a chemical company included breakthrough research on catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation and being the first company to mass-produce light emitting diodes (LEDs). The company also formerly manufactured controversial products such as the insecticide DDT, PCBs, Agent Orange, and recombinant bovine somatotropin.
Monsanto was among the first to genetically modify a plant cell, along with three academic teams, which was announced in 1983.

McKinsey & Company was founded in 1926 in Chicago by James McKinsey under the name James O. McKinsey & Company. Previously, James McKinsey served as an accounting professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and is considered the father of managerial accounting. Advocates for the concepts introduced in McKinsey’s book, Budgetary Control, were among McKinsey’s first clients. The book founded the practice of managerial accounting.
Mr. McKinsey hired Tom Kearney and Marvin Bower in the early 1930s. In 1935. In 1935, Marshall Field’s became a client and in 1935 convinced McKinsey to leave the firm to accept a temporary position and become its Chairman and CEO, in order to help the company through a restructuring.
After McKinsey left, the remaining members of the firm agreed to merge with the accounting firm Scovell, Wellington & Company in 1935, leading to the creation of McKinsey, Wellington & Co.
In 1937 James O. McKinsey died unexpectedly of pneumonia, which led to the division of McKinsey, Wellington & Company in 1939. C. Oliver Wellington returned to manage Scovell, Wellington & Company full-time and took the accounting practice with him. The management engineering practice was split into two affiliated firms: McKinsey & Company and McKinsey, Kearney & Company, which later became known as A.T. Kearney. McKinsey & Company was led by Guy Crockett, Dick Fletcher, and Marvin Bower. Guy Crockett became Managing Partner of McKinsey & Company, running day-to-day operations, while Marvin Bower handled conceptual and long-term strategy as Crockett’s deputy. Bower would lead the company for 30 years with a focus on being “professional” in looks, tone, and conduct.
McKinsey & Company is credited with creating modern management consulting as a professional service. Marvin Bower is credited with shaping the firm’s values and principles. Bower’s idea was to create a management consulting firm working with senior executives with the same professional standards he had witnessed as a lawyer for the firm of Jones Day Reavis & Pogue in Cleveland.
In New York, Bower established the firm’s core principles in a 1937 memo. According to Fortune Magazine.
