But as a historian, I have to deal with facts and reality. I knew before I finished writing my book, that I would be lucky to get my printing costs out of it. Imagine my relief when the book paid for its self, and actually made a profit! So what do you do with a few hundred dollars with which to promote your cause? So far, I have used the monies to buy ornamental fencing material to protect some of the graves I have discovered in the Julian cemetery. It has been my hope that I could hire a professional archaeologist to help me with some of the more sensitive projects in the works. Some have claimed that African American's, Albert Robinson (founder of the Hotel Robinson, now known as the Julian Hotel) and America Newton (local laundress) could not have been buried in the Julian Cemetery because it was for "whites only." Only a fool would argue that cemeteries do not have a history of that kind of segregation. Just as foolish, is to argue that segregationist sentiments did not exist in Julian. Even today, with an African American as president of the most powerful nation in the world, by David Lewis racist attitudes exist. So the truth of how blacks were treated in old Julian, must lie somewhere in between the two extremes. Ever since we had the Black Pioneer History Celebration in 2005, I Iave wondered if there might be something lying on the graves of Albert, America, Susan, or Martha, that might identify them as African American. My involvement with the history of the Julian Cemetery and of funerary practices showed me that African Americans often times had their own unique ways of decorating grave sites. Knowing these practices is difficult because slaves were imported from different regions of Africa, and had different customs. Once here, there was probably a blending of customs as well as some assimilation into European culture. By the time Albert and the rest of Julian's black pioneers reached California, they may have been several generations removed from their cultural roots. I doubted that a surface investigation would find anything, especially after nearly 100 years had gone by. Still...I had to try. My involvement with San Diego State's anthropology department led me to contact Kristin Tennesen, to help me with the investigation. Kristin, who LOG HOME?

The background research into the Nate Harrison project was exhaustive. Deciding which graves to study took a little thought, but I eventually chose Albert and Martha's gravesites. I chose Albert for obvious reasons. continued on page 13 Local Artist Judges Federal Duck Stamp Contest Artist Joe Garcia, resident of Julian, returned recently from Berkeley, California, where he was part of the five-judge panel that selected the winning painting for the 2010 Federal Duck Stamp. The intense 2-day selection process was an honor he considersi highlight in his 35- year career as a wildlife painter. I enjoyed the entire experience! Said Garcia. "1 was impressed by the passion of the US Fish & Wildlife Service personnel, volunteers and artists who work to make the contest successful. They are an inspiration to anyone interested in wetland and wildlife i conservation." The judges named James Hautman, an artist from Chaska, Minnesota, as winner of the 2010 contest. The announcement was made Saturday, October 16, at the David Brewer Center in Berkeley, Calif., during the annual competition hosted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Previously, Hautman has won the Duck Stamp three times, in 1989, 1994 and 1998. The judging panel included former California Secretary of Natural Resources Mike Chrisman; waterfowl biologist and professor John Eadie; wildlife artist Joe Garcia; retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Jerry Serie; and wildlife biologist and duck stamp expert Carlo Vecchiarelli. The alternate judge was Gary Kramer, an outdoor writer and photographer. Since the inception of the duck stamp contest in 1934, there have been only 189 judges to serve on the panel. Garcia observed that the 235 entries included a range of styles and expertise, from the bizarre to the sublime, abstract to realism. The fee for each entry is $125.00. The selection was based on ' All Funds Stay in Juliant Any funds not spent on the new building can only :iii: be used for other high school improvements.

Garcia commented at the end of the contest, "When the judges were required to break the tie-vote for first place on the final round, it was a matter of 'splitting feathers,' so to speak." He said there were many very fine paintings. The Federal Duck Stamp Contest is the nation's oldest and most prestigious federal wildlife art competition in America. Ninety-eight percent of the proceeds from the $15 Duck Stamp go to the Migratory Bird Conservation Fund, which supports the purchase of acres of wetlands for inclusion into the National Wildlife Refuge System. When purchasing a Duck Stamp, your donation goes directly toward protecting and conserving wetlands that not only serve as homes for many species of wildlife, but also improve water quality and assist in flood control. Prior to government regulations and control of duck hunting, many hundreds of thpusands of species were hunted wholesale for market. The institution of the duck stamp brought much needed awareness to hunters and concerned citizens about the need to preserve the waterfowl population. Since 1934, sales of Federal Duck Stamps have helped to purchase nearly six million acres of wildlife habitat for the Refuge System. To date, Duck Stamp funds have been used to acquire habitat at hundreds of refuges in nearly every state. There are 550 National Wildlife Refuges spread across all 50 states and U.S. territories. A current Duck Stamp also may be used for free admission to any national wildlife refuge open to the public. Refuges offer unparalleled wildlife oriented education and recreational opportunities, including hunting, fishing, bird watching and photography. Purchase a Duck Stamp at most major sporting goods stores that sell hunting and fishing licenses, the United States Post Office, or online at: duckstamps/stamps.htm.
