Transcript Landmark for Sale Sam Daidone's worldly possessions 'carried away' The wordly possessions of Sam L. Daidone went up for sale Thursday, March 8. Daidone, who died July 18, 1987, was a collector. It would not be accurate to call him an antique collector; an art collector; a book collector; a collector of cut glass bangles and ceramic baubles. He collected all of these things, and many more, with a passion, but there is no apparent rhyme or reason to his collecting. No clear motivation except a deep love for stuff. Daidone's house, a squat two story, frame structure at 2814 Cullen Blvd, is a landmark. Around 1981, exercising its right of eminent domain, UH bought Daidone's house and most of the land around it. Daidone was given 10 years before UH took possession. The contract, however, stipulates that someone must live in the house, Daidone's daughter, Sara Jones said. "After Daddy died we had to put my Mamma in a rest home. She just couldn't keep the place up," Jones said. RUMMAGE SALE- Even though Sam's daughter Sara Jones referred to the estate sale as 'bottom of the barrel/ many visitors spent both afternoons in the dimly lit rundown home browsing through the boxes of old phonographs and tables crammed with glass ornaments that once belonged to the respected collector.Pfiofo by Lara Schultz. UH attorneys told the family in December to begin emptying the house, Jones said. They had until March 9 to sell what they could, Jones said. The rest would have to be moved. "I don't hold any grudges against the university. They've made it possible for my Mamma to be cared for," Jones said. A group as diverse as Daidone's collection, trodded the old house's water-stained carpets. There were canny antique buyers opening drawers in search of dove-tail joints, junk- shop freaks and compulsive browsers. "It tears me up watching Daddy's stuff carried away," Jones said. "But it's also a relief. The place has been broken into several times and some expensive pieces were stolen. Last week somebody broke in and smashed a $500 stained glass door." "Before he died, Daddy shipped a lot of his collection to the Hart Gallery. Then he sent another load to a buyer. Most of what's left is just bot tom of the barrel stuff." Jones said. The bottom of Sam Daidone's barrel was an interesting place to rummage. There were Victorian lamps, Art- Deco lamps and pool-hall lamps pushing beer that had not been brewed for decades. .% The crowd had to maneuver around a small collection of SingeJ sewing machines. Radios from even era — some cast of cheap plastic some made of finely carved hard wood — stood silent in the corners. Every horizontal surface contained' something odd, old or simply inter] esting. On a large table in what ond must have been Daidone's den, then was a collection of glass sporting everything from whiskey bottles to Avon decanters to crystal goblets. On one wall, lost in a huge portrai frame, was a copy of the Houstorj Chroncicle. The page was folded, scj the date was hidden, but in od headline a newly sworn president Lyndon Baines Johnson, is said td have a four-point plan. The page alsq so REDTAPE
