NCGA Member Attempts to Correct History During a visit to St. Andrews NCGA member MAYNARD

GARRISON saw a pamphlet on American history fi gure James Wilson at an antique fair. Reading the pamphlet in the home of golf invigorated Garrison and ultimately resulted in a passion to set the history books straight. Garrison explained that James Madison was the only note-taker during the constitutional convention. All delegates swore themselves to secrecy and it wasn’t for 50 years that Madison’s notes were revealed. “The facts of life are that the world hates a vacuum and a lot of skewed information regarding the creation of our constitution existed. Until Mr. Madison’s notes were revealed in 1840 no one knew what Mr. Wilson had done.” Wilson wrote the fi rst draft of the constitution creating the phrase “We the People.” Calling that role “too important to ignore” Garrison has put in hours and hours of research and given talks and written a book on the historic fi gure. “The ultimate goal is rec-

ognition of Mr. Wilson and what he did,” explained the San Francisco GC member. “It is gradually getting done. There have been a number of stories, law review articles and other printings by scholars who recognize Mr. Wilson and his contribution to the creation of America, which is profound. His pro- posal of a strong but divided central

government controlled by the people through frequent elections was adopted.” Garrison and his wife Mary own a house one block

from the Old Course in St. Andrews and he calls him- self a “history buff.” The 84-year-old is retired from an illustrious 40-year career practicing law in San Francisco and deems golf an important part of his life. The R&A member gives talks about Mr. Wilson

and spreads the word when he can. “American history is too important not to be correct. I invite everyone to review it, consider it, discuss it and analyze it and come up with a correct understanding of the creation of America.”


After a creative process that took 14 years, artist JAMES DAVID CHASE of Angwin

unveiled his tribute to Arnold Palmer, a piece that is a de- tailed portrait created from words woven into the form of Palmer’s face. Chase took hun-

dreds of pictures to capture Palmer’s facial expressions and features and invested untold hours researching the words that form the handwritten text

shaped in Palmer’s face. The text chosen are words spoken by Palmer, words writ- ten about him or names and scores of every tournament and award the part-owner of Pebble Beach earned.

Named “Gratitude” in

dedication to the emotion Palmer’s fans feel toward the Latrobe, Pennsylvania native,

the piece is displayed at the Arnold Palmer Center for Golf History at USGA headquarters in Far Hills, New Jersey and at the World Golf Hall of

Fame. “To be with Arnie at the re- opening (after a renovation) of the USGA museum was the thrill of my life,” the artist said. Chase, a

Pacifi c Union College profes-

sor of Rhetoric and Public Speaking, specializes in a technique described as “rhetorical pointilism” in creating the portrait on 30 by 40-inch posterboard. The technique’s name comes from the use of

22,719 words that form the picture—words written on

the posterboard at the rate of eight an hour. “I have enormous admira-

tion for the character of this man,” Chase said in reference to why he chose Palmer as the subject of his work. “I’ve

observed patience and per- sistence in him, and a regard for every human being. The portrait was a labor of love.” Reproductions of the print

will be available for sale at a later date.
