Carleton Wright was born in New Hampton, Iowa, on 2nd June, 1892. He attended the United States Naval Academy and graduated in 1912 (16/156). Wright became an ordnance specialist and on the outbreak of the Second World War he was captain of the Augusta.

Promoted to rear admiral in May, 1942, Wright was given command of the cruiser unit under Admiral William Halsey in the South Pacific. In November 1942, he replaced Vice-Admiral Thomas Kinkaid and became head of Task Group 67.

Wright took part in the action off Savo Island. Although one enemy destroyer was sunk the Japanese Navy crippled three US Navy ship. Admiral Chester Nimitz was disappointed by Wright's performance and although awarded the Navy Cross, was sent to Washington for a period of staff duty.

After a brief spell as commander of Cruiser Division 4 in the Marshall Islands but in January 1944 he returned to staff duty and became head of 12th Naval District in San Francisco.

In March 1946 Wright became Inspector General of the Pacific Fleet and Pacific Ocean Area. He also served as deputy commander of the Marianas (1947-48) before retiring from the US Navy in October, 1948. Carleton Wright died in Claremont, California, on 27th June, 1970.


Taliesin (studio)

Taliesin ( / ˌ t æ l i ˈ ɛ s ɪ n / ), sometimes known as Taliesin East, Taliesin Spring Green, or Taliesin North after 1937, was the estate of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Located 2.5 miles (4.0 km) south of the village of Spring Green, Wisconsin, United States, the 600-acre (240 ha) property was developed on land that originally belonged to Wright's maternal family.

With a selection of Wright's other work, Taliesin became a listed World Heritage Site in 2019, under the title, "The 20th-Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright".


Economic Historian Gavin Wright to Discuss the Material Impact of Civil Rights

Gavin Wright, an economic historian who is perhaps the leading authority on the American South today, will deliver Carleton College’s weekly convocation address on Friday, Sept. 30. Wright’s presentation, entitled “The Civil Rights Revolution as American Economic History: Who Gained? Who Lost?,” will look at the economic impacts of the civil rights legislation of the 1960s on both African Americans and whites. Convocation is held from 10:50-11:50 a.m. in the Skinner Memorial Chapel, and it is free and open to the public.

Gavin Wright, an economic historian who is perhaps the leading authority on the American South today, will deliver Carleton College’s weekly convocation address on Friday, Sept. 30. Wright’s presentation, entitled “The Civil Rights Revolution as American Economic History: Who Gained? Who Lost?,” will look at the economic impacts of the civil rights legislation of the 1960s on both African Americans and whites. Convocation is held from 10:50-11:50 a.m. in the Skinner Memorial Chapel, and it is free and open to the public.

Wright is currently pursuing research into the economics of civil rights, and his presentation will explore whether the advances of the 1960s provided actual economic benefits among African Americans, and whether these benefits were distributed evenly among African Americans of varying classes. Wright also asks whether these gains came at the expense of white prosperity, or whether economic restructuring benefited the entire population.

Wright has authored or co-authored four books on economics and economic history and edited or co-edited four others. Most recently Wright wrote Slavery and American Economic Development (Louisiana State University Press, 2006), which was described by University of Delaware history professor Peter Kolchin as “an unusually sensible, thought-provoking, and accessible challenge to the interpretation now in the ascendancy among economic historians.” In the book, Wright argues that slavery had a negative economic impact on masters as well as slaves by retarding the development and modernization of the South and preventing the South from gaining an advantage over the North in terms of economic growth. A previous book by Wright, Old South New South: Revolutions in the Southern Economy Since the Civil War (Louisiana State University Press, 1996), was awarded the Owsley Prize by the Southern Historical Association.

A graduate of Swarthmore College and Yale University, Wright taught at Yale, the University of Michigan, and the University of California at Berkeley before accepting his current position as professor of economics at Stanford University in 1982. Since 1994 Wright has also been the William Robertson Coe Professor of American Economic History at Stanford. Wright is a Senior Fellow at the Stanford Center for International Development and from 2010 to 2011 he was a fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C.

Correspondence of Stuart Wright and various authors whose work Wright either published or whose bibliographies Wright compiled. Included in this correspondence are letters, copies of poems, and bibliographical information. All correspondents are well known authors with ties to North Carolina.

The most voluminous is correspondence, 1977-1986, with A. R. Ammons. Ammons wrote concerning various broadsides and volumes of his poems that Wright published, as well as a bibliography of Ammons's work that Wright compiled. The letters often discuss financial matters, including the sale of signed broadsides, limited editions of poetic works, and Ammons's artwork. Ammons also discussed the prospect of selling his papers to a repository, as well as the possible market value of the original copy of his poem Tape. Ammons occasionally mentioned the substance of his own writing and often referred to his teaching load at Cornell University. Enclosed with one of the letters is a typed, signed copy of Ammons's poem "Delineation." Also enclosed in one of Ammons's letters is a manuscript of poems by Augustus Carleton entitled "Diverted Sonnets." Carleton, of Ithaca, N.Y., appears to have been a student or colleague of Ammons.

Wright published a revised version Shelby Foote's essay "The Novelist's View of History" in 1981 and some of the corrections to the proof are included with Foote's correspondence, 1977-1983. However, much of the Foote correspondence also concerns writer George Garrett, a friend of both Foote and Wright. Wright had apparently compiled a tribute to Garrett, and a holograph copy of Foote's contribution is included.

The correspondence with O. B. Hardison, 1979-1980 Robert Morgan, 1981-1985 and James Seay, 1982, contains, along with some personal material, letters about broadsides of their work. The original poems are occasionally included. There are three poems from Hardison, five from Morgan, and a prose piece from Seay.

There is but one letter each from Lee Smith (undated) and Sylvia Wilkinson (March 1983). Smith wrote to thank Wright for an invitation to a party attended by Eudora Welty. Wilkinson's letter referred to the difficulties she experienced in writing a book.

Carleton Wright - History

James Henry Carleton was born at Lubec, Maine, on December 27, 1814. He was the son of John and Abigail (Phelps) Carleton. His father John was a ship captain. At age twenty-five he was commissioned a lieutenant in the Maine militia in 1838 and participated in the boundary dispute with Canada known as the "Aristook War." He received appointment as a second lieutenant in the First Dragoons on October 18, 1839, and then trained at Carlisle Barracks. In October 1840 he married Henrietta Tracy Loring of Boston. Henrietta accompanied Carleton to his duty assignment at Fort Gibson, Indian Territory, where she died in October 1841. Later in the 1840s Carleton served as assistant commissary of subsistence at Fort Leavenworth, accompanied Maj. Clifton Wharton's expedition to the Pawnee Villages in Nebraska, served as an officer on Col. Stephen Watts Kearny's 1845 expedition to South Pass, and saw action in 1847 in the battle of Buena Vista. In 1848 Carleton married Sophia Garland Wolfe, niece of Gen. John Garland. During the 1850s Carleton served under Garland in New Mexico Territory.

Summer of 1858 saw him, his family and 700 raw recruits stationed at Fort Tejon, California as commander of the Fort with the First Dragoons. In 1859 he was ordered to Salt Lake City to investigate the massacre at Mountain Meadows in 1857 of 120 Arkansas emigrants. He concluded that it was Mormons dressed as Indians and 20 years later a court convicted one and he was executed at the spot of the crime. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Carleton was appointed to Colonel of 1st Infantry, California Volunteers on 26 July 1861 by then Governor John L. Downey. He would ultimately become brigadier general of the California volunteers and command the "California Column" on its march to the Rio Grande. This journey consisted of around 2350 men and was done largely on foot, in summer, wearing wool uniforms, and carrying heavy rifles & knapsacks. In a very hot and dry environment, amazingly not one man was lost due to non-battle causes. The hike from Wilmington, CA to El Paso, TX has been reported to be the longest infantry march in US Infantry history. Carleton was basically in command in Southern California from January of 1861 to April of 1861. In September 1862 he replaced Gen. Edward R. S. Canby as commander of the Department of New Mexico. One of Carleton's first acts upon assuming command was to reissue Canby's order establishing martial law in New Mexico. He also devised a passport system to distinguish loyal citizens from Confederate spies. Although Carleton never attempted to set himself up as a military governor, he believed he had authority to carry through any policy he deemed essential to the peace and prosperity of the territory. Many of his actions antagonized the citizens.

In addition to securing the territory against Confederate intrigue, Carleton took steps to subdue hostile Indian tribes. He sent Col. Kit (Christopher) Carson and other subordinates against the Mescalero Apaches with orders to kill all Indian men "whenever and wherever you can find them." By February 1863 the Mescaleros had been relocated on the new Indian reservation of Bosque Redondo on the Pecos River. Carleton then waged war against the Navajos, ordering Carson and other officers to destroy all crops in Navajo country to starve them into submission. Carleton's strategy brought immediate results. Some 8,000 Navajos surrendered and then made the "Long Walk" to Bosque Redondo, where Carleton planned to turn them into Christian farmers. The Bosque Redondo experiment ended in failure, however. The Mescaleros quietly fled the reservation, and the Navajo captives faced death, disease, and a constant shortage of food. The cost of maintaining Bosque Redondo persuaded the government to allow the Navajos to return to their homeland. Carleton's policies became ensnarled in territorial politics. Although his superiors believed him an efficient and capable officer, hostile criticism led to his reassignment early in 1867. After a long overdue furlough he returned to duty in 1868 with his regiment, the Fourth United States Cavalry in Texas. He served with his regiment until summer of 1872. He was granted six months medical leave in a "cold climate" for chronic excema problems with his legs. He returned to duty in December of 1872 probably by ship. He was hospitalized with bronchitis contracted enroute. He never fully recovered and left New Orleans for San Antonio in the cold rainy season. After arriving on December 28th he contracted pneumonia the next day. He was hospitalized the next day and died in San Antonio on January 7, 1873. Carleton and his second wife, Sophia, had five children two died in childhood. Carleton published several accounts of his military experiences. His oldest son, Henry Guy Carleton, became a journalist, playwright, and inventor.

What Kind of a Man Was James Henry Carleton?

He lived fifty-eight adventure filled years and we know what he did in those years. As a human being he is hard to pin a label on because he was a very different man at different times. He was sensitive, literate, emotional, and creative a patriot through and through capable and dedicated military man who sometimes used what seems toe be and excess of disciplinary zeal a good husband and father who had to neglect his family when duty called a compassionate peace keeper with his Indian charges when conditions permitted but an implacable foe when he had to be. There were reports that in the end he turned to the "bottle" in the twilight of his career. It was mentioned in some reports, but moderate drinking was very common on the frontier to combat loneliness and boredom. So without actually being there we will never know. He was never the less a good soldier and great leader at a time when he was desperately needed.

Biko Wright

With the heart of a mountain Viking and the soul of a skald, Biko is most at home in the wild. He grew up in the mountains of Topanga Canyon, California, where his parents shared with him their love of the wilderness. Family vacations involved camping, backpacking, snowboarding, snorkeling, spear fishing or hunting. Wilderness and survival skills were prized in his family. Biko’s father, a former Los Angeles sheriff’s sergeant and Marine veteran, shared a passion for wilderness outings and hunting and fishing, that he learned from his own father as a child in Fiji. “In a survival situation,” was Biko’s dad’s constant mantra. He taught Biko and his older brother everything about wilderness survival training. His mom rambled the canyon trails with Biko, his dogs and his friends. When he was older, Biko trained with his Dad’s search and rescue team and he even participated in avalanche training.

Biko loves the Norse gods and following in the old heathen ways. He spars with sword, axe and shield with like-minded friends, and loves building, welding, and forging with his own hands. These are all skills he puts to good use on the property he owns with his fiancé, Erin, in the woods of Western Oregon. Just before leaving to compete on Alone, Biko learned his fiancé is expecting twins—their first children. Taking on the Alone challenge will be his greatest journey until his next step—fatherhood.

Music is in Biko’s blood. His grandparents are blues musicians in New Orleans, and he formed his first band when he was 9. By 14, his growls, screams and strong baritone put him at the front of metal bands. He became the lead singer of the melodic death metal band Sirion, which became one of the top LA area local metal bands. In Oregon, he is part of a heathen folk band, Endelos, that plays at local mead halls, pubs and festivals.

Biko has longed for an adventure like Alone his whole life. To help Biko prepare for Alone, his dad camped out on Biko’s property. Together they worked day and night to train for this epic adventure. He will test his skills, his mental will and his voice. Not to survive, but to thrive and tell his saga.

Here are the ten items Biko selected to bring on his survival journey to Grizzly Mountain:


History 1963 to Present Day

After Jessie passed away it was Carleton’s job to do the purchasing of trees and the administration, Stanley oversaw the running of the yard and did the sawing and final grading and Albert did all the splitting and initial grading.

The business was small but the firm still employed up to 25 men, this was before a lot of the mechanisation. Carleton, Albert and Stanley each had a son. The sons were David, Nicholas and Peter, they would all be involved in all aspects of the business. Large teams of men would go felling all over the country, motorways were non exisitant so journeys would take much longer which meant a lot of time away from home.

This photo shows Nick (at the back), Carleton (left) and Peter cutting a tree

All the trees were felled and sawn into lengths using a cross cut saw, sometimes with four men on the saw. All the rolls would be carried out on men’s shoulders and the lorries were loaded by hand. A crane was used to load the rolls that were too big to lift, this was fitted on the front of a lorry. Forklifts, chainsaws and other modern equipment has now taken on the job. In the 1950’s the yard moved into the middle of the village, there it continued to grow and the system of sawing the blades from the split clefts was started.

In 1971 David decided to emigrate to Australia. Again the company needed a larger site so the land in the middle of the village was sold for building and it was allowed by the council to move to the present site at Coles Farm.

By this time Peter had a son in the business but a tragedy struck in 1980 when Robert ( known as Bobby) was killed on his motorbike. This was a great blow to the company as Bobby was an integeral part of the business and a good friend to all.

Unfortunately Carleton Wright sadly passed away on 3rd March 2009 aged 96, he lived for the business and had a very interesting and good life, he is sadly missed by all the family and the business.

Peter Wright then passed away on 26th January 2010 at the age of 84, he retired at 65 and gave his working life to the company.

The family are still very much involved in the business. The business is run by the Chairman Nicholas Wright (Jessie’s Grandson) who has recently been awarded an MBE for Services to Industry, Jeremy Ruggles (Jessie’s Great Grandson) and Oliver Wright ( Nick’s son and Jessie’s Great Grand Son). The Company now produces more cricket bat blades than ever.
