Hugh was cofounder of two archery clubs.

The first, in 1952, was South Bay Archery Club, in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, which is still going strong.

This page is from the club newsletter.

The 'Old Crow' mentioned, for you teetotalers, is the Kentucky bourbon of that name.

3.jpg 
I wonder how many of the present day members know the significance of the crow in the club logo?

2.jpg 

The second club was the Howard Hill Archery Club. It was formed in 1975 and the same year the Howard Hill Archery Range was opened in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. Along with Hugh and some others, Paul MacWilliams was a driving force behind the range. He fought long and hard to get it open, only to have the city shut it down in 1978, so they could install soccer fields in its place as part of a master plan for the park. The club disbanded also.

Here's the layout for the club patch. That's not a drawing, it's an actual embroidered patch.

This patch may have been made when a alternative club name was considered. I don't know. A membership card is below it.

5.jpg 

A couple of club flyers.

The range.

The newspaper article sounding the death knell for the range.

For you gun hunters out there, you probably are familiar with cartridge drop down pouches. Here's the original.

Hugh had a friend in Mexico that owned a leather shop with high volume capabilities. I don't know the year, but I would guess it was the early 50's when the idea came to life. Hugh never took out a patent and after a while the pouches were being duplicated.

Here's an advertisement copy. I believe they had ads in several sportsman's magazines. You can see Hugh's hand taking cartridges out of the pouch. I have the NFAA ring he's wearing.

11.jpg 


Here's the original design and some variants.

14.jpg 

I don't know what these 2 1/4" x 1" pieces were for, but I might punch a hole in one and put it on my key ring. Maybe they were promotional giveaways. 

15.jpg 

These are the clicker dies for the belt loop and pouches, a punch that is in the shape of 1/2 of the flap, and the 10 Shot die for the hot stamp machine. The long clicker die for the main part of the pouch is missing.

16.jpg 

Hugh also had the leather shop make quivers that he sold at his store.

13.jpg 

This is Hugh's personal quiver.

WOW, Ira, what a treasure of information.  I realize that this information wouldn't amount to  a 'hill of bean's to a lot of people, but we here on TAS truly appreciate what you do, and learn more and more about the 'giants' of archery in our past.  Thanks again.

I hope these are some of things you said are destined for the museum.

Jim, there are many things that will go to the NFAA museum. A lot of items need cleaning, and/or repairing and paperwork needs to be matched up. I hope to have some of the stuff on the way in a few weeks.

Well, I decided to punch a hole in one of the rectangular 10 Shot pieces. I added a small ring and put it on my key ring. Somehow I don't think anybody else has one.
