ELY: Stephen Lee/Lea, son of Solomon Leander and Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" BAWDEN, savant, Ph.D in philosophy, spends high school summer in Des Moines Round House

Excerpts following from a letter written by Stephen Lee ELYs friend Richard W. BALLARD of Denver, Colorado - Memorial Day 1985. Richards father owned BALLARD Drug and Dental, on 2nd St. in Davenport where many of the BAWDENs shopped.

He was by all current standards a true savant, but a very well-balanced one; he sight-read Latin (even Cicero) to the extent the teacher was certain he had a pony hidden over-leaf. There was none. In spite of his mastery of just about everything with a once-over-light, he didnt appear to be bored, or even arrogant, as some of these unfortunates are likely to be.

[In his letter, Mr. BALLARD refers to Stiffen Lea. This was a nickname - Lee Elys fathers middle name was Leander, a name which had become humorous to school boys by 1900, and the name Stiffen referred to an occasional overindulgence of alcohol during his high school days.]

Lea ELY was a strike-breaker or scab, of which Im one. Summer of 1922, the Maintenance of Way Union went out nationally. They were shop and round house, and gandy dancers (section hands) but the Brotherhoods didnt support them. Even so, their work on locomotives and cars and right-of-way was beginning to be felt by June, and wed just graduated from DHS - pretty cocky, us! (Central High School, Davenport, Iowa).

A classmate wrote that unbelievable wages were being paid, and come on to join him. We took the night day-coach for Des Moines; even then strikers were riding the trains, looking for strike-breakers. When identified as such, they were treated roughly, even before they were employed as such. Lea and I, both using our Boy Scout packs, said we were on our way to a Boy Scout Camp, and we were allowed to go on. We got a room at the Y opposite the Brown Hotel that night, and went to 15th & Walnut, early next morning with our Boy Scout packs. We were hired as fire-builders.

Id spent some time at Rowland WILLIAMS fathers farm in Cordova [Illinois], where he made a living repairing Stanley Steamers, and I had a fair idea of steam engines, their care and feeding, after a few summers of doing the grunt work. Lea had absolutely not the foggiest of what it was about but he was quick to take at anything. Lea elected to work the night trick, and I the day shift, as night wasnt very busy, and he could pick up what the job was easiest that way.

Please understand a steam locomotive is the contrariest, hardest to lubricate, expensive to maintain AND inefficient invention of modern man. Thats why they only last a hundred years - 1840 to 1940, when the railroads discovered the Diesel. The locos Des Moines Union owned never got on the main line, but were Yard Goats, so their fires had to be pulled at the end of each shift, the grates turned over, and new fires started. That was our job; hitching up a blower to the smoke box, throwing kindling (old ties) up on the deck to see if there was water in the boiler, set the brakes, toss in oily rags, and when there was a good fire, load her up with coal.

It took about 3 hours to get one ready for the job with enough steam to get out of the yard, So we had several tallow pots at once under our car. We worked different shifts for another purpose; to guard the other guys belongings. There were about 45 stiffs like us doing the work of 175 union men; we didnt do it well, but there were no breakdowns in service. Maybe some engines didnt steam as well as they might. Unions truly do great jobs!

The food started out good, but as the strike degenerated, so did the food. About the middle of August, we got stewed raisins that were half flies, so we quit, wired our money home, and started walking; we couldnt figure why there was no eastbound traffic. It was opening day of the State Fair! We walked as far as Altoona (about 25 miles) with no water, no food, so we slept in a school house, and each ate an apple from the teachers desk that night. Both Lea and I never forgave ourselves for that, but it was a life-saver. Next morning, we caught a ride clear to Davenport. Two weeks later, Lea went to Wisconsin, I went to Iowa (University of), but we were the best of friends. Last time I saw him was summer of 1926 (wed graduated); he was sitting in a car, smoking a cigarette, a bit drunk, and explained the Fourth Dimension!

ELY: Stephen Lee/Lea, son of Solomon Leander and Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" BAWDEN, savant, Ph.D in philosophy, m. Bertha/Berta MONTEMAYOR in Chicago, dies of cancer in Madison

Stephen Lee/Lea was born 2 Jan 1905 in Davenport, Scott, Iowa, seven mos after the death of his father. He was brought up by his mother and grandmother in the Stephen Douglas BAWDEN home on 1315 E. 11th St. in Davenport.

"Lee" is remembered by some of his Davenport school friends (no cites) as being very popular, a near genius in his studies, and able to play any tune he ever heard on the piano. He and Bix Beiderbecke attended Davenport High School at the same time, and although they were in different classes, they shared many friends. One summer during high school, Lee and Richard BALLARD worked as strike breakers in the Des Moines Union Round House doing maintenance work on the locomotives. It was a dangerous job which paid well because feelings over the strike ran high and many strike breakers, if caught coming or going from the round house were beaten and even murdered (see seperate blog story).

Lee graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison where he was a member of Kappa Sigma social fraternity and elected to Phi Beta Kappa national honor society. He received his Bachelors, Masters and Ph.D from Madison in philosophy where he became an associate professor. He taught at the university for 15 years, during which he wrote the controversial book "Religious Availability of Whitehead's God" and reviews and articles in that field.

In March 1945 (no date) Lee married Bertha MONTEMAYOR, (middle of 6 children: Estella, Gustavo, Berta, Roman "Rum", George, Charlie) in Chicago, Illinois (? not substantiated but listed in references). She was the dtr of Gustav Octavius and Elvira VILLAREAL MONTEMAYOR, born 15 Jun 1921 in San Antonio, Bexar, Texas. About 1926, the MONTEMAYOR family moved to Janesvillle, Rock, Wisconsin, where Gustav worked for the Parker Pen Company. Bertha attended Janesville schools and the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where she met Stephen.

Stephen Lee ELY died 7 May 1947 at Madison of cancer. He was cremated and his ashes were inurned in Madison suburb Monona's Rose Lawn Memorial Park, in a lot owned by Bertha. For 2 weeks after his death, the flag over the University was flown at half-mast in mourning for this talented and beloved teacher.

Bertha ELY married 29 Sept 1949 in Madison, Robert CRAFTON GILPIN who was studying at the university.

They moved to Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana where Bertha attended Butler University, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in languages...teaching secondary Spanish. She taught Spanish at the private Park-Tudor School in Indianapolis. After Robert died she took up residence in Fairhope, Alabama where she married pediatricin Rollie ???.

Stephen and Bertha had only a daughter, which Robert adopted: Elizabeth MONTEMAYOR ELY, born 30 July 1945 in Madison, Dane, Wisconsin. (seperate blog).

The family moved back to Davenport, Scott, Iowa (parents natives) in 1895 so George could form a partnership with Julius LISCHER. Jennie's father, Jacob MULLEN ELDRIDGE, gave the couple 80 feet of land on Kirkwood Boulevard [511 Kirkwood], near her family to build a house.

Harry attended Davenport schools and the University of Iowa (Iowa City, Johnson Cnty) where he was a member of Signa Chi social fraternity. After one year in Iowa City, Harry returned to Davenport to join brothers Albert (AR) and George Ray "Ray" in the newsstand and picture postcard business in the I&I Interurban railway ticket office on Brady St.

Harry enlisted in the Army on 22 Nov 1917 at the Rock Island Arsenal. He served as Sergeant in the Special Training Ordnance Co., 2nd Regiment Training Camp, Hancock, Hancock, Georgia. Upon his return, he managed the commercial photography department of BAWDEN Bros. Inc, now at 121 E. 3rd St. (no longer exists - Kaiserslautern Square "K Square" city park named after Davenport's sister city in Germany, and restaurant Duck City replaced)

On 12 June 1926, Harry married Blanche KNOX at Short Hills Country Club in East Moline, Rock Island, Illinois. Blanche was born 18 May 1898 in Moline. Her adopted father was Luther Calvin KNOX and mother was Sarah Jane Reily (sp?) KNOX. Calvin's grandfather, Charles founded the KNOX Funeral Homes in Rock Island.

Blanche graduated from Moline High School and the National Kindergarten and Elementary College in Chicago, Cook, Illinois. She was a kindergarten teacher in the Moline schools.

The BAWDEN home at 105 Greenwood Avenue, Bettendorf, Scott, Iowa, was where Blanche was living when she died on 30 Aug 1972. Harry and Blanche had 1 child, Nancy Glee born 18 July 1927 in Davenport. "Nan" legally changed her name in high school to Nan - no Glee. (seperate blog) She died 13 Jan 1999 in Coral Breeze, Florida.

At his death, 25 Jul 1976 in Davenport, Harry was Chairman of the Board of BAWDEN Bros. Inc. He was the last of the founding brothers to die. Harry was a member of Davenport's First Presbyterian Church, The American Legion Post 26, and Rotary Club. He and Blanche are buried in the public mausoleum in Oakdale Cemetery.

He spent his last years at Ridgecrest Village in Davenport, where he brought happiness to others with his daily visit to those who were bedridden and by originating and organizing trips to local restaurants for those able to travel. He was a beloved man, always enthusiastic and cheerful, with a keen interest in the role his family played in the development of Scott County and the City of Davenport. Many references in this 1896 family gene study are attributed to his undated family history.

Family stories from Ridgecrest say Harry put Playboy magazines in the sunrooms.
