From Cosmos Club Journal: "It all started in the summer of 1941. The war in Europe had been going on for two years. But the mood in the United States was "stay out." In August 1941, the US House of Representatives adopted, by a single vote, a proposal to extend the draft of young men into the armed forces.
In June, I had graduated from the Peabody Institute of Music (now part of Johns Hopkins University) with a teacher's certificate in cello. There was no work for either cellists or teachers. Luckily, I had an A.B. degree from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, and decided to use this to secure a commission in the US Navy. My application was accepted pending a physical exam. Application denied: underweight; slightly deaf in left ear; and colorblind with respect to certain shades of pale blue and pale green. Hardly fit material for the Navy, which apparently required perfection.
In November 1941, I became an assistant to William Hard, Sr. (CC 1917-1962), who was then a Roving Editor of the Reader's Digest. My title was "Labor Researcher." When my draft number came up, one of the top Digest editors wrote a letter to the draft board explaining that I had an essential job with a magazine that was essential to morale, both civilian and military.
In January 1945, I was promoted to "Associate Editor" and my name was placed on the masthead. By that time, however, our troops in Europe had suffered through the Battle of the Bulge and the Army decided that the war was going to last indefinitely, making it necessary to draft every man who could stand up without help and every mouse who could squeak. By that time, I had acquired a wife, three children, and a mortgage. The letter about an essential job on an essential magazine did not work. I was drafted and told to report at 6:00 A.M. on 3 April 1945 for transportation to Fort George G. Meade to be inducted into the Army. "
Frederick J.O. Blachly (CC '80) was an associate editor of the Reader's Digest and later a writer and public affairs adviser for the departments of Commerce and State, and in the executive Office of the President. He says "I made my living as a writer and my life as a musician." He played in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and was first cellist of the Washington Camerata.

Louis Bradley Blachly was born on 5 Nov 1889 in Delta, Colorado. He died on 5 Mar 1965 in Tuscon, Arizona. Lou grew up mostly in Delta, Colorado, in poverty with his brothers and his mother. He and several of his brothers operated a small cattle business for about five years, which eventually went bankrupt without any of them having received any pay. His mother sent him off to Oberlin, but Lou quit school and worked a year selling Manheim Mendless socks to help put brother Fred through a graduate program at Columbia. He then enrolled in the University of Wisconson at Madison, but upon the death of his brother Hal in 1915, Lou returned home to support his mother for a year. He then returned to college at Madison, bringing his mother to live with him. After Dellie found other lodgings in Boulder, Colorado with another son, Edward, Lou joined the service for the duration of WWI. He married Natalie Norton in 1922, and they lived in Montclair, New Jersey. He went into business as a broker of apples, peaches, and pears, selling mostly to companies in Germany and France. He was fairly successful in this business until the advent of WWII resulted in a loss of his overseas market, and his company went bankrupt. The family lost their house in Montclair and moved to New York City, where Lou was able to continue in the fruit business for a while longer. He was finally forced to go alone to Washington D.C., to seek the the help of two of his brothers who lived there. He found work with the government as a procurement specialist with Lend-Lease, and spent most of the war years away from home. Natalie became discouraged with their marriage, and when Lou returned home they were divorced. In his later years he worked as a journalist, authoring at least two guide books on flora and fauna of the west. He also spent much time interviewing and recording the recollections of residents of New Mexico. He was instrumental in founding the Pioneers Foundation, and spent much time and effort in finding funding for his oral history project. He was writing a biography of his mother's life at the time of his death. This work served as the basis for the biography 'Dellie' by Ruth Bradley. He also recorded a narrative biography of his own life up to the time of his divorce.
Following from a University of New Mexico biography:
Louis Bradley Blachly was born on November 5, 1889 to Andrew True Blachly and Adelle Bradley Blachly on a farm near Delta, Colorado. In high school, Lou was class president, debating team leader, and manager of the football team. He was fascinated with history, and especially with the oral pursuit of the historical record. He didn't finish high school because of illness, but nevertheless was accepted to Oberlin College in 1911. Family responsibilities forced Lou to quit Oberlin College that same year. In 1912, he continued his college education at the University of Wisconsin, Madison pursuing a degree in economics. Again, family responsibilities disrupted his college education, but in 1919, he received an A.B. degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin. In 1922, Lou Blachly married Natalie Norton, with whom he had 2 children. Much of Lou's professional career was with the federal government. His position with the Land-Lease program required frequent moves and extensive time overseas, straining his marriage. In 1947, when forced to make a choice between his marriage or his career, Lou chose his career, and he and Natalie were divorced. Blachly received a disability retirement from the government in 1949 at age 59, and then moved to Silver City via Albuquerque upon retirement. Blachly worked for the Silver City Enterprise until 1950, where he began a column called, "I'll Never Forget, " featuring recollections of old timers. Lou's childhood fascination with history and oral history was resurfacing. He was intrigued that there were still people alive who remembered the "frontier experience" and he felt an urgency to record their remembrances. In 1951, Blachly successfully met with some of Silver City's prominent businessmen to plead for support in forming the Pioneers Foundation, an organization which would record the reminiscences of the remaining "pioneers." Caeser Brock was the first of more than 150 individuals who were interviewed by the Pioneers Foundation. By 1955, Blachly had become discouraged with the Pioneers Project, and focused his attention elsewhere. Blachly moved to Tucson in 1957, where he produced 2 books, Picture Guide to Southwestern Arizona Wildflowers (1963) and Mammals, Snakes, and Lizards of the Southwest (1964). Lou Blachly died at home in Tucson on March 5, 1965. His remains were cremated and scattered in the desert near Tucson. Parents: Andrew Trew BLACHLY and Mary Adelle BRADLEY.

Jane Trew Blachly wrote in 1875 "Marion has a hard life, but we hope that she has been a better Christian for the last two years. Hutchins is no help to her in training up her children. He has the Honor of two inventions, first a churn and a corn planter. Still they are poor." Later the same year Jane wrote "Marion has a very rough path in life. She is greatly tempted to infidelity. Talked most of the time with her father while here on the authenticity of the Scriptures. Pray for her, that Satan may not sift her as wheat." Parents: Eben BLACHLY M.D. and Minerva SEELEY.
