COCC professor, Masters runner Hatton dead at 83

Geography instructor still holds four national records
By Scott Hammers / The Bulletin

Raymond Robert Hatton Feb. 4 1932 - March 4 2015
A longtime Central Oregon Community College professor and decorated long-distance runner died last week.
Raymond Robert Hatton, COCC geography professor from 1969 through 1993 and a member of the USA Track & Field Masters Hall of Fame, died March 4 in Eugene. He was 83.
Born in England, Hatton was a competitive runner from an early age, representing England in the International Cross Country Championships in 1952. In 1956, he came to the United States as one of six English runners recruited to run for the University of Idaho.
Hatton’s son, Peter Hatton, said his father and mother, Raymond Hatton’s wife, Sylvia, had planned to return to England once he completed his studies. Instead, taken by the landscapes and history of the American West, he decided to stay.
Tom Carroll, an economics professor at COCC who taught alongside Hatton, said Hatton’s classes were always in high demand on campus, particularly a class he taught that largely consisted of field trips to sites of geographic interest around the area.
“He’d go 50 or 100 miles in one direction or another, over the Cascades or out in the desert, and he’d be talking the whole time, explaining things to people,” Carroll said.
Outside of his academic work at COCC, Hatton was a dedicated researcher and writer, publishing 10 books on Oregon history, geography and climate.
Carroll said Hatton’s books — four of which were written after he retired — show the passion he had for the landscape and people of his adopted home.
“I think you’d call that going above and beyond the call of duty, all of that enthusiasm bubbling up for his subject,” Carroll said.
Although he had been a successful runner in England and in college, Hatton’s greatest success came in his 40s and 50s.
Peter Hatton recalled a meet in the early 1970s at Bend High School in which his father was running against a field largely half his age or younger. Peter Hatton said the younger runners dismissed his father when he fell behind during the first few laps, then watched as he breezed past them in the final laps to take the race.
Through the 1970s and 1980s, Hatton won multiple national age-group titles running at distances between 1,500 and 10,000 meters. He was named runner of the year for his age group twice by USA Track & Field.
In 1982 and 1983, Hatton set four age records for runners 50 to 54 years old that still stand, in the 1,500 meters, 3,000 meters and 10,000 meters on both a track and a road course. Hatton’s marks in the 1,500 meters and 3,000 meters would have had him challenging among the top 10 at the Oregon high school state championships last spring.
Peter Hatton remembered spending much of his childhood with his mother, sister Janice Hatton and his father on long road trips to the next masters track meet or race.
“I remember the travel. Travel was definitely a big part. Not just around Oregon, but going to Banff, Canada, and Cancun together,” Peter Hatton said. “He really enjoyed travel, and he enjoyed the mountains. Mountains were probably a favorite, and that’s why I think he loved Central Oregon, because he loved the mountains and the forest.”
Shevlin Park was Hatton’s favorite place to run, Peter Hatton said, and he’d often refer to it as “Dr. Shevlin,” a nod to the restorative powers he felt the park possessed.
Peter Hatton said his father remained in excellent health until he was slowed by Alzheimer’s disease in the last two to three years.
Although he’d retired from competitive running years earlier, he was still running 30 miles a week into his 70s, Peter Hatton said, about as much as he’d ever run during his most intensive training decades earlier.
Peter Hatton said he and his sister observed that their father passed away at 3:30 p.m. last Wednesday — the very time of day he’d almost always be lacing up his shoes to go for his daily run.
“We don’t know for sure, but we think he took off to go for a run,” Peter Hatton said.
Hatton is survived by his son; his daughter, Janice Hatton, of Eugene; and his wife, Sylvia Hatton, of Bend.
The family is in the early stages of arranging a memorial service to be held at COCC next month.

The Greats: Ray Hatton

Running is just a part of me now

Published
March 2, 2010


"If anyone my age wants to take me on, I'm ready," says 77-year-old Ray Hatton of Bend, Ore. "Otherwise, I am not really motivated to race these days. I much prefer to go out on the trails and enjoy the scenery."
When, during the early and mid-1970s, masters competition was still in its infancy, Hatton was "the man" on both the track and the roads, at least in races up to 20K. He set many American 40-44 records on the track, including 4:24.0 for 1 mile, 9:17.6 for 2 miles, and 30:56.0 for 10,000m. He no doubt would have had many road records, but his best performances came in the days before course certification and record keeping. Still, Hatton's name can be found four times among the all-time age-graded performances. They came between ages 49 and 55 and include a 31:51 (97.2 percent) for 10K at age 51 and a 1:09:23 (95.3 percent) for 20K at age 55.
Born in Lichfield, England, Hatton took up running in 1943 while in high school and didn't give up racing until 1992 after back surgery. "But I am still putting in 30 to 35 miles a week and my weight is still at 138-140, pretty much what it has always been," says Hatton, his English accent still very much with him even though he has lived in the U.S. since attending the University of Idaho on an athletic scholarship, where he won the 1959 Pacific Coast Conference cross country championship. He earned his master's degree at the University of Oregon and taught geography at Central Oregon Community College in Bend for many years.
Looking back, Hatton most treasures his days of running with the Birchfield Harriers in England, when he ran a 4:11 mile and 8:57 2-mile, excellent times in those days of low-mileage training, when the marathon was not a popular event. "I never really had the time or desire for high-mileage training and so was never motivated to run a marathon or go more than 20K," Hatton explains, mentioning that he rarely did more than 35 miles of training in one week.
"I do it mostly for health and fitness now," he adds. "But I don't really think that much about why I do it. Running is just part of me now."

Ray's bibliography and still the best books on the area:
Over the years, Hatton’s research, including numerous first-person field interviews, has played an important role in preserving Central Oregon’s pioneer history. This work was the basis for ten books. Central Oregon’s geography, history, and climate are the subject of the first eight books. The last two books are on the weather and climate of the state of Oregon and the Portland, Oregon area. Here is a list of his books:
  • Bend Country Weather and Climate, Binford and Mort, 1973; revised in 1977
  • High Desert of Central Oregon, Binford and Mort, 1977; second edition in 1981
  • Bend in Central Oregon, Binford and Mort, 1978
  • High Country of Central Oregon, Binford and Mort, 1980
  • Pioneer Homesteaders of the Fort Rock Valley, Binford and Mort, 1982
  • Oregon's Big Country: A Portrait of Southeastern Oregon, Maverick Publications, 1988
  • Sisters Country Weather and Climate, Maverick Publications, 1994
  • Oregon's Sisters Country (co-written with Lawrence A. Chitwood and Stuart G. Garrett), Geographical Books, 1996
  • The Oregon Weather Book: A State of Extremes (co-written with George Taylor and George H. Taylor),  Oregon State University Press, 1999
  • Portland, Oregon Weather and Climate: A Historical Perspective, Geographical Books, 2005
In 1984, the Oregon Historical Society published a review of Pioneer Homesteaders of the Fort Rock Valley in the Oregon Historical Quarterly, the society’s premier history journal. The same journal published a review of Oregon’s Sisters Country in 1998.

Rhoda Gollehur Ryan

Rhoda Gollehur Ryan

There doesn't seem to be an obituary - when you die alone, people don't bother....
Rhoda was worth bothering for.
Rhoda was a friend and a talented weaver.
She was a founding member of the Eugene Weavers Guild in 1946 - see history.
She introduced me to and invited me to join the Central Oregon Spinners and Weaver Guild.
My first Guild meeting and my first trip to Crooked River Ranch was as a passenger in Rhoda's car - a trip that scared me half to death - she was well into her 80's and a speeder!
She reached out to me and included me.
She was a lady.
She was born June 3, 1911.
She died March 10, 2011,
She was married to Chrales "Bryan" Ryan on January 1, 1942.

Rhoda will live in my memory as a warm, friendly, talented woman.
Shew as married to the love of her life and childless.
Her home was the magic of art - her husband a fine artist - she a weaver.
Through the magic of a green thumb and an ingeniously designed lava rock walled garden, the Ryan's always had magnificent homegrown and ripe tomatoes here in the high desert of Central Oregon. 
I am richer for having known her.

The works of a lifetime

The art of Tumalo's Charles Bryan Ryan has gained recognition he never sought
Andrew Moore /

After retiring from his art professorship at the University of Oregon in 1976, Charles Bryan Ryan moved to Tumalo, never to paint again.
Having spent 30 years introducing theory and technique to U of O art students, Ryan was ready to indulge his other passion: the outdoors. He joined the Over the Hill Gang, a local senior ski club, and until his death in 2001 at age 92, Ryan hiked, camped and reveled in the area's natural beauty, according to family friend Sandra Miller.
In 2003, Rhoda Ryan called Miller, owner of Frame Design and Sunbird Gallery in Bend, and asked what she should do with her late husband's artwork. She had sold the family home and was preparing an estate sale in advance of her move to an assisted-living facility.
Miller obliged her friend, and found Ryan's paintings stacked unceremoniously in the couple's garage, left by the late artist to gather dust. Upon reviewing the art, Miller was awestruck.
”All (the paintings) were dusty and dirty, but all these wonderful colors came out,” Miller said. ”My first feeling was 'Oh my God, this is a group of paintings we really need to show people.'”
And so with Rhoda Ryan's permission, Miller began cataloging Ryan's work. What she discovered was a comprehensive collection of modern art that ranged from geometric abstractions to Cezanne-inspired landscapes, amassed from Ryan's long teaching career. Many of the paintings are thickly painted, in the impasto style, rendered with complementary colors to add tonal effects, Miller said.
”You can't just put paint on if you don't know what you are doing. I mean you can, but it won't turn out like this,” said Miller of the exhibit.
After a year was spent cleaning, cataloging and framing the art, often using frames built by Ryan and left in a similar dusty stack, Miller hung the work in The Gallery in the Pinckney Center for the Arts at Central Oregon Community College in October of 2003.
From there, the exhibit traveled to the Coos Art Museum in Coos Bay. M.J. Koreiva, the executive director of the museum, described Ryan as an influential contemporary artist.
”His work is very reflective of mid-1950s and mid-'60s art work,” Koreiva said. ”Contemporary works of the '50s are now looked back upon as holding the test of time.”
The exhibit is now back in Central Oregon, hanging at the Bend Public Library through July (see ”If You Go”). It includes mostly oil paintings, but also pastels, drawings, prints, lithographs and sketches.
”He was definitely a product of the age,” Miller said. ”I also think that he was ahead of his time insofar as he was teaching the art aesthetic of cubism, and elements that came from the later part of the 1800s and early 1900s.”
Ryan was born in 1909 in Fort Jones, Calif., a small Northern California town in the shadow of Mount Shasta. At the U of O, he earned a bachelor's degree in fine arts in 1939, and a master's in fine arts the following year. He was then hired as a teaching assistant in the university's zoology department, according to the exhibit's biography of Ryan, before World War II intervened.
As an avid outdoorsman, Ryan was recruited to join the Army's famed 10th Mountain Division, the ”ski troops.” Among those he served with was Mount Bachelor founder Bill Healy.
When the division was ordered to the Italian front, Lt. Ryan took advantage of his relocation to study art, leading fellow soldiers on tours of the region's art and architectural highlights. Immediately after the war, Ryan stayed overseas to teach art at the University of Florence in Italy.
He returned to Oregon in 1946, taking up an art instructor position with the U of O, and stayed with the university until his retirement.
Through the U of O, Ryan developed a friendship with Buckminster Fuller, the renowned 20th-century architect, scientist and philosopher. It was a relationship that deeply affected both Ryan's work and his life. In the exhibit at the library is a letter from Ryan to Fuller, addressed to ”Bucky.”
”Ryan was a good friend of Fuller's,” Miller said. ”He took on a lot of his ideas and theories, such as how strength is created by certain geometric formations, and (Ryan) built examples of these principles as teaching aids for his students.”
According to Miller, more than 500 of these geometric pieces are included in Stanford University's Buckminster Fuller archive. She also found them in abundance at the Ryan home, hanging from the ceiling like mobiles.
Ryan also put Fuller's theories to work at home, building one of Fuller's signature geodesic domes for a home during the 1960s outside of Eugene.
As with Fuller, learning was a real passion for Ryan, Miller said, and teaching provided him a creative force. Miller believes that most of Ryan's works were painted in class alongside his students, as he attempted to illustrate theories and provoke experimentation.
When Ryan was done teaching, he took his work home and left it. He had had a few showings of his work over the course of his life, but his motivation wasn't material, Miller said, nor was he inclined to seek recognition.
”I think he was born in a time when you were either good or you weren't,” Miller said. ”Marketing wasn't a big deal. They recognized you or they didn't.”
Miller said Ryan's position as an art teacher allowed him to fully develop as an artist, enjoying ample time to paint and freedom from the need to sell his work.
”He had the time to concentrate on art as he taught and he was not expected to show his work,” Miller said. ”I think all his works were to educate himself and to know that he could do it, and to discover things for himself and then pass his discoveries on to his students.
”He was a thoughtful, philosophical man but his art was very personal,” Miller added. ”I don't get a sense that he gushed about nature and art. The expression of who he was came through in his art and his teaching.”

Dr Paul A Mullan

Dr Paul A Mullan

Dr. Paul A. Mullan, a retired Baltimore pediatrician who had also served in the air Force Medical Corps, died Sunday at Stella Maris Hospice of complications from a stroke.  He was 84.

The son of George Vaughn Mullan, who was supervisor of maintenance for the New York subway system, and Mary Calaghy Mullan, and administrative assistant, Paul Aloysius Mullan was born in New York City and raised in Brooklyn.

He was a graduate of St. Francis deSales School in Geneva, N.Y., and graduated in 1948 from Seton Hall Preparatory School in South Orange, N.J.

After earning a bachelor's degree in 1952 in chemistry, he enrolled at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, and after a year entered the University of Maryland School of Medicine, where he earned a medical degree in 1957.

Dr. Mullan completed a rotating internship in 1958 at the Jersey City Medical Center in New Jersey, as well as a residency in pediatrics in 1959 at what is now Mercy Medical Center, where he was chief resident from 1959 to 1960.

From 1960 until retiring in the late 1990s, Dr. Mullan maintained a private practice at his Osler Drive office in Towson. He also was an attending physician and a member of the pediatric staff at the University of Maryland Medical Center, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Mercy Medical Center, Greater Baltimore Medical Center and what is now University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center, where he chaired the department of pediatrics from 1969 to 1979.

Dr. Mullan was an assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Maryland and the Johns Hopkins schools of medicine.

Dr. Mullan was commissioned a captain in the Air Force Medical Corps and was promoted to colonel. He was commanding officer from 1964 to 1967 of the 22nd Medical Service Squadron at Andrews Air Force Base in Washington. He later was assigned as a staff pediatrician to the 9019th Air Reserve Squadron at the Malcolm Grow Air Force Medical Center at Andrews Air Force Base. He was discharged with the rank of colonel in 1990.

Dr. Mullan and his wife made headlines in 1979 when they adopted a foundling who had been discovered earlier that year in a Towson apartment vestibule.

The child was originally named Joseph Francis Towson, or Joe Towson, by county police, and was cared for by Dr. Mullan, who at the time was living in the 3900 block of N. Charles St. After a two-day hearing to legally adopt the child, the Mullans named him Paul Edward Kennedy Mullan.

Their son, who became a photographer, died of a brain tumor in 2013. He was 34.

Dr. Mullan married Carol Kennedy in 1975. They lived in the Orchards neighborhood of North Baltimore.
Dr. Mullan was a powerboater, world traveler and a "sometimes golfer," said his wife, a retired schoolteacher. "His hobby was the Air Force. He loved the military."

Dr. Mullan was a communicant of the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 5200 N. Charles St., where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. Saturday.

He is survived by his wife.

Paul E.K. Mullan, 34,
photographer who was chronicled as infant found in Towson

As a baby found wrapped in blanket, he was dubbed 'Joe Towson'

Paul Edward Kennedy Mullan, a photographer who made headlines as a foundling discovered in a Towson apartment vestibule, died of a brain tumor Feb. 27 at his parents' North Baltimore home. He was 34.

The story of his first days filled news columns in January 1979. The Sun reported he was discovered near the vestibule mailboxes of a Towson garden apartment near Towson University. Days old, he was wrapped in a plaid blanket and dressed in a J.C. Penney shirt and a diaper held together with Scotch tape.
Baltimore County police officers took the infant to nearby St. Joseph Medical Center, where he was informally named Joseph Francis Towson, or Joe Towson.

"Joseph is the star attraction of the nursing station in the pediatrics ward ... where the nurses think he is beautiful," a Sun story said.

Months later, the baby was again making news stories. He became the subject of an adoption conflict, part of which was jurisdictional. Dr. Paul A. Mullan, a St. Joseph staff member and a pediatrician who cared for the infant after he was found, and his wife, Carol, a school teacher, had no children of their own and sought to adopt him.

The Mullans then lived in the 3900 block of N. Charles St. in the city, several miles from the Baltimore County line.

Judge John N. Maguire held a two-day hearing and by July 1979, the baby became the couple's legally adopted son.

The baby was diagnosed with a congenital heart ailment that required open-heart surgery later performed by Dr. Bruce Reitz, then of Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Mr. Mullan was enrolled at the Gilman School, where he graduated in 1997.

"He brought nothing but joy," said Gilman's headmaster, John E. Schmick, who had been his faculty adviser. "He was always on the sidelines, cheering. He was a real positive member of his class."

Mr. Mullan spent three years in the architecture program at the Catholic University of America, but left after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent surgeries.

On his website, Mr. Mullan discussed his decision to leave architecture. "My memory was too impacted by my surgeries and other treatments. That brought me back to my photography," he said in his essay.
"I started my photography in the 6th grade. I was the photo editor for both the yearbook and newspaper while attending high school. ... When my junior and senior years came I had to develop Independent Studies in photography," he said in the website. "Spending every summer on the Eastern Shore of Maryland I wanted to capture the sights found from the Chesapeake Bay to the Atlantic Ocean."

He also said that he devoted months to doing fine art photographic essays. "Photographs cannot have smells, tastes, texture, or sounds, but I try to involve all the senses in each photograph by capturing enough to have the viewer associate the image with the actual subject," he wrote. "By working hard to capture the image in perfection, that image can create the feeling of being there by your imagination or a quick day-dream."
He took photos of the stained glass windows in the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, where he was a member and he and his father were ushers. He also photographed the Isle of Wight, Assateague Seashore Park and the Dominican Republic.

He also spent time in Ocean City, Maryland, where he assisted lifeguards patrolling the surfers' beach.

Ginny Milanicz, a family friend from Fallston, said, "He was a happy, energetic person who did a lot of work for other recovering cancer patients."

A funeral Mass will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 5200 N. Charles St.
Survivors include his parents.
