Bob Baird's final salute to loyal readers - The Journal News |

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
There was no way to know that Houston and his family would drop back into my life in the early 1980s when his son Kevin was a Journal News Scholar-Athlete of the Week, playing basketball for Pearl River. Kevin went on to lead the country in both scoring and free throw percentage his senior year at West Point, something no player since has accomplished. His dad coached basketball at Sacred Heart High School in Yonkers, was an assistant at Fordham and now is an assistant to his other son, Jerry Jr., the head coach at Pearl River, where Kevin’s son recently starred for the Pirates. In 2003, when I invited Kevin Houston to speak at the annual Scholar-Athlete of the Year dinner, he told me his wife Liz had been diagnosed with scleroderma, which my daughter Tracy has battled for 15 years. Liz’s ordeal brought our families closer together before her ...

Local historian digs up long-lost info on The Picayune Creole Cook Book -

Fri, Oct 21, 2011
Fertel has come to believe the cookbook was published because of Eliza Jane Nicholson, who, in 1876, became the first female publisher of a metropolitan newspaper. She wrote poetry under the name Pearl Rivers, and was the 1873 topic in The Times-Picayune's 175th anniversary project, a feature that appears daily in the A section. Nicholson died before the first cookbook was published, but deserves some of the credit for it, Fertel says. "She feminized the paper and marketed it more toward women readers," Fertel said. She added society coverage and a kitchen column called Household Hints. That column first appeared in late 1882, 18 years before the cookbook, and Fertel suspects many recipes there found their way into the cookbook. Through the years, the identity of the cookbook's author has been a mystery, as the book contains no credits. One of the speculations was that it was written by Lafcadio Hearn, which Fertel says is complete nonsense. Fertel says the author was Marie Louise Points, a writer and reporter who wrote for The Picayune and some Catholic publications. "She came from a white, French-Creole family in New Orleans; her ancestors were from Virginia and around the Gulf Coast," Fertel said. "In the 1890s and 1900s, you had this explosion of female writers in New Orleans and through the South. This is when Grace King is really prominent." He has not found Points' obituary, but two other obituaries credit her as the author of the first edition of "The Picayune Creole Cook Book." He also found a 1965 obituary of a "really famous New Orleans historian of his generation, John Smith Kendall ... that says he aided in the research and development of 'The Picayune's Creole Cook Book.' He was a professor at Tulane, and wrote way before that at The Picayune. He was also a distant cousin of the co-founder of The Picayune." Once he had all the editions, Fertel compared the forewords and introductions, which were rewritten for each new edition. They mirror changes in society and culture in America, the South and New Orleans, he says. "Over time, through different editions, the cookbook gives more credit, and less credit, and again more credit to women," Fertel said. Similarly, the recipes were credited to African-American cooks, and then to professional cooks, and then back to African-American cooks. In the first four editions, between 1900 and 1910, the introductions state that African-American women who were "the help" were disappearing from white households, and white women had to reclaim their kitchens; they had no other choice. The 1916 fifth edition is "tot...
