County.

J. F. ADAMS

A leading sheep and horse raiser of Umatilla county, lives in the edge of

the Blue mountains near the Umatilla reservation. His parents were Joseph and

Areete Adams, of Franklin county, Maine. He was born in the town of Jay, Maine,

July 20, 1835, and has seven brothers and sisters, Charles B., Henry C., Joseph

W., Helen M., Mercy H., Adda B., and Bertha. His boyhood days were spent in the

quiet of New England farm life, attending the public school at intervals, and

dividing two of the later years between attendance at an academy and working on

the farm. In 1858 he resolved to make a bold stroke to better his condition.

He therefore, came to this coast by the Panama rout, and made his way to Umpqua

valley, Oregon, where he began life as a school teacher. He taught four years,

investing his earnings in live stock, thus laying the foundation of his fortune.

He then devoted himself to the stock business. In 1865 he came to Umatilla

county and located his present home, containing 250 acres, which forms one of

the illustrations of this work. J. F. Adams, Robert Thompson and Jacob Frazier

were the pioneers in that section of the county. Mr. Adams confined his

attention to sheep until 1870, when he began raising horses also. His bands of

sheep contain from 6,000 to 10,000, and his horses graze on the hills in large

numbers. In 1868 he married Miss Susan F. Fry, a lady from Indianapolis, Ind.

Their children are: John R., born January 15, 1880; George H., July 27, 1881.

Having lived so long on the frontier, Mr. Adams has had many adventures and

experience incident to such a life, including a narrow escape from the hostile

Bannocks, when they came upon the reservation in 1878 and murdered several

people. He possesses in a marked degree the qualities of energy and activity

required to conduct his business successfully, and is reconed among the most

enterprising citizens of Umatilla County.

Obituary | Charles Herring anchored Seattle's first live TV news

By Tan Vinh

Seattle Times staff reporter

(Picture)

Charles Herring is seen on the set of KING-TV News in 1962. The first live broadcast aired on the station on Sept. 10, 1951.

On an early September evening in 1951, Charles H. Herring Jr. stepped in front of a camera and into history, becoming Seattle's first live-television news broadcaster.

He changed the landscape of this radio- and newspaper-dependent city, colleagues and historians said. He brought Seattle breaking news and live coverage of historic events. He became part of the family dinner-hour ritual.

Mr. Herring died Monday at Swedish Medical Center after a long bout with cancer. He was 83.

Mr. Herring, who worked at Channel 5 for 16 years, was the first live-news anchor north of Los Angeles and west of Minneapolis, said Feliks Banel, a news historian for Seattle's Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI).

His coverage of the 1962 Seattle's World's Fair was the nation's first live broadcast via satellite to Europe, according to KING-TV News.

Through Mr. Herring, a riveted public had a front-row seat for the historic test flight of the Boeing 707 prototype in 1954, the riot in the state penitentiary at Walla Walla in 1955 and the McClellan Committee hearing into the affairs of the controversial Teamsters union leader Dave Beck in Washington, D.C.

With his authoritative voice and dapper suits, Mr. Herring projected a sense of confidence during the nightly 15-minute broadcast.

The first live broadcast aired on Sept. 10, 1951, MOHAI said, and among his top stories, according to a Seattle Times article, was a forest fire that spread across thousands of acres in Forks, Clallam County.

"In the early 1950s, KING-TV was the only television station on the air. Anyone with a television set got the news from Charles Herring," Banel said.

Born on Aug. 18, 1922, Mr. Herring was raised on a farm outside of Walla Walla. He enrolled at Washington State University for a year, then transferred to Whitman College, where the English major graduated cum laude in 1944.

The U.S. Navy sent Mr. Herring to fight in the Pacific. When he returned two years later, he took a newscasting job at a Seattle radio station before becoming Channel 5's first news director and anchor in 1951.

A former mom-and-pop store on Queen Anne Hill that had an uneven floor served as his newsroom. "His desk was propped up with something so that his pencils wouldn't roll off onto the floor as he was trying to edit his news script," Banel said.

He would type his script he was the fastest two-finger typist you will ever see, his family said then hop into his car to the studio in South Lake Union, sometimes arriving minutes before airtime.

Every day was a race to the studio because he was chasing news, said his son, Charlie Herring of Seattle.

By the time his son was in middle school, he realized his father was a big deal because at restaurants, diners would always stop Mr. Herring to get his autograph.

Mr. Herring, who once read the news on air with a smoking pipe in his hand, left Channel 5 in 1967, and with his wife, the late Mary Bemus, purchased KAPY-AM in Port Angeles. The couple ran the radio station until 1978. He then worked for Boeing as a video producer until retiring in 1987.

He lived on Glen Acres Golf course in Seattle, near the first hole, for about the past 20 years.

Besides his son, Mr. Herring is survived by his brother, Jerry Herring, of Sonora, Calif.; a sister, Carlee Lorenz, of Rolling Hills, Calif.; daughters Mary Susan Pitlick of Seattle, Pam Beil of Fox Island and Jenny Herring of Edmonds; and six grandchildren.

At his request, no services will be held. Remembrances may be made in his name to Whitman College, 345 Boyer Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362, Providence Mount St. Vincent, 4831 35th Ave S.W., Seattle, WA 98126-2799 or the Union Gospel Mission, 3800 S. Othello St., Seattle, WA 98118.
