Transcript i 'In I \ VOLUME XVIII, NO, lO February, 1970 ]_c_s -test The most obviously beautiful things in the world of Hature are birds and flowers and the stones we call precious, -Havelock Ellis PUBLISHED BY THE 0RHITH0L0GY GROUP, OUTDOOR HATURE CLUB, HOUSTOH, TEXAS ARMAHD YRAMATEGUI; A RAY OF SUHSHINE, A FOUNTAIH OF KHOWLEDGE, AND AN INSPIRATION TO ALL WHO KNEW HIM by Noel Pettingell I'll never forget my first spring in Houston - especially those early-morning birding walks with Armand in Hermann Park, One day in particular stands out vividly - as I know it did in Armand's mind too because he was fond of recounting it in many of our conversations over the years. It was April 19, 1952 and we were standing on the footbridge over Brays Bayou when suddenly a large strikingly-beautiful fork-tailed bird appeared in the sky, gracefully following the course of .the bayou. It was a Swallow- tailed Kite - the first time either of us had ever seen one and a sight that we both treasured as the most memorable of many shared experiences. There are many facets of Armand's exceptional character that will live forever in my mind and heart; his unquenchable cheerfulness and sense of humor (he was a serious student of nature and science - yet never took himself seriously): his contagious laugh, smile and enthusiasms his willingness to talk at length on any subject at any time (he was never too busy to visit with me whenever I dropped in at the Museum unexpectedly); his encouragement and helpful suggestions) his countless thoughtful and unselfish acts. Once when visiting the Museum with my family I showed Armand a chunk of blackish rock that my son had found and thought might be of meteoric origin. Though he probably suspected the substance was not extraordinary, Armand nevertheless took the time and trouble to make various tests of the material just to satisfy my son's curiousity, Armand Yramategui will be remembered by a great many persons of all ages and interests in places both far and near. We who have had the privilege of knowing this kind and considerate ijjan who contributed so very much toward the preservation and appreciation visions of future goals.a living tieans at pur disposal to us - just as he did...., EARLY TEXAS BIRD SOCIETY by Bessie G, Cornelius While I was browsing about the Browz-A-Bit Book Stoe in Beaumont, I came across a delightful bit of bibliography that may be of interest to many birders, I found all the early issues of Bird-Lore starting with Volume I, No, 1, dated February, 1899. to 1913, with the exception of two years. All were bound in six hardbacked volumes and lovingly gilt- edged by hand, Bird-Lore was the first official organ of the Audubon Societies and preceded the now nationally known Audubon Magazine, Bird-Lore's motto was "A Bird in the Bush is Worth Two in the Hand," A seetion of the magazine was usually devoted to the report of State Societies ( and there were very few) with the names and addresses of secretaries,- On page 103 of Volume I, No, 3, dated June 1899, appeared the following: "Two Hew Audubon Societies, We announce with pleasure the formation of Audubon Societies in Texas and in California, The Texas Society was organized on March 4, (1899) at Galveston with Miss Cecile Seixas as Secretary,.,.,,...The addresses of the secretaries of these societies are given in our 'directory' and we trust they will receive the cooperation of all bird lovers in their respective states." In the directory appeared the name of Miss Seixas, 2008 Thirty-ninth Street, Galveston, Texas, Thereafter her name appeared in each issue but suddenly it disappeared, the last mentioned being in August, 1900 issue, I thumbed throug several subsequent issues and finding no mention thought to myself that the first Texas bird society had not lasted long. However, going back I found the following sad announcement in the October, 1900 issue: "Death of Miss Seixas, We regret to announce the death of Miss Cecile Seixas, secretary
