Missing the Bus

How Memphians stumbled their way through a broken city in the aftermath of the King assassination. he decade that followed James Earl Ray’s murder of Dr. Martin Luther King was certainly the gloomiest of the five that Memphis has lived through since that dark day in April 1968. In the aftermath of that year when everything went wrong, our city went through the equivalent of an economic, civic, and spiritual depression.

olly Courtney watched her brother, Max, play football an hour before she was untying his football cleats for him. That’s when Max, who was seriously injured in the football game, went into cardiac arrest. Max was airlifted to Regional One Health. His family credits the work of the trauma team there for saving Max’s life. Max, Molly, and Will Courtney were among the 900 guests at the ONE Night Gala, held April 14th at Memphis Cook Convention Center. More than $300,000 was raised at the event, which included dinner, silent and live auctions, and performances by Kenny Loggins and the Bar-Kays. Regional One Health president/CEO Dr. Reginald Coopwood began the evening by telling the audience about the work of the health system and sharing the Courtney family’s story. Molly Courtney summed up the hospital’s work when she told the audience, “When the clock was ticking, they helped give my baby brother a second chance at life.” Madelyn Gray and Holly Craft were the co-chairs.

ore than $1.2 million was raised at the 2018 FedExFamilyHouse Gala, held April 14th at The Peabody. “Celebrate Home & Hospitality” was the theme of 3 the gala, which was attended by about 730 people. Marc Gasol and his wife, Cristina, were honorary chairs of the event. “Thanks, everyone, for coming — and giving from your heart,” Marc told the audience. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was honorary guest. He attended with his wife, Brittany. Michael and Beth Monistere and their son, Christopher, 11, from Metairie, Louisiana, took the stage at one point. They were staying at the FedExFamilyHouse that weekend because Christopher was doing a sleep study at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Michael said. Christopher had two surgeries at Le Bonheur in January 2017, Michael said. They were at the gala “to 4 support the FedExFamilyHouse and to try and give back to Le Bonheur to help other people.” The event included dinner, a live auction, and music by the Memphis Soul Revue. DJ Space Girl Janet Wilson provided the entertainment at the Late-Night Lounge in the Continental Ballroom.

The plastic poop bag is the only good thing about the despised free print newspapers that litter the sidewalks, gutters, and driveways in my Midtown neighborhood.

Martinez offers headache care at East Campus

ndividuals suffering with headaches don’t have to go through life dealing with the pain. Jesus Martinez, MD, sees patients dealing with a range of neurological issues, including those who suffer with headaches. He sees patients at Regional One Health’s Multispecialty Care Clinic where he works with a team of providers who offer a personcentered approach to care. Dr. Martinez guides patients suffering with headaches and enables them to get control of their condition. “I think information and education empowers the patient to better manage their problem,” he said. “It’s not just me telling them to take this or that, but how to avoid situations to prevent headaches. “It depends on symptoms, but a person with headaches taking pain meds more than twice a week needs to be seen by a doctor,” he continued. “You can be helped so you don’t have to take so many pills. That’s the patient with a simple issue who goes from doctor to doctor. But most others with symptoms like passing out, weakness, getting episodes of abnormal sensations or losing vision can be straight forward nervous system issues.” If a person has two or more headaches per week they need preventative medication, Dr. Martinez said. It’s important to learn what will stop the next headache. Dr. Martinez doesn’t treat the pain, he searches for the cause of the headaches to prevent them from occurring. “It’s more important to find what stops the next headache from coming,” he said. “That’s the fine tuning to find what works for you to cut down the number of headaches, or if you have them maybe they won’t be as severe.” The later in life a person develops recurring headaches the more worrisome it is, Dr. Martinez said. “You may still have migraines but after age 50 we want to look to make sure we’re not missing something else,” he said. “It could be an inflammatory issue, tumor or blood vessel abnormality. Patients with migraines have been known to have an increased risk for strokes.” Dr. Martinez said he enjoys being part of the Multispecialty Care Clinic where he has the opportunity to work with other

Dr. Martinez consults with nurse practitioner Amanda Best and pharmacist AhYoung Wah to use a team approach to care for his patients.

The clinic is staffed with medicine services such as internal medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, nephrology, neurology and rheumatology.

Greetingsfrom

ELLIS ’ ISLAND

Thoughtful renovations transform a “generic classic” home into a showplace of English Regency design.

T

his month’s featured home is on one of the loveliest streets in East Memphis; to my mind it has always been “a

great home.” Now, following

a fabulous renovation by Oscar Menzer, one of Memphis’ most prominent architects, and executed by Ryan Anderson’s RKA Construction, it has become even grander. The homeowners, George and Julie Ellis, tell me this is the home’s fourth renovation since 1985, when they first moved in. George points out that “from the moment we bought it, my wife has been recreating it.” They suggested that the focus of this overview be on Menzer and Anderson, as well as Carolyn Jones, their talented interior designer and good friend. Accordingly, Julie Ellis arranged for us all to meet and walk through the house together.

great memphis homes Architect Menzer told me his objective was to take the home’s design from a “generic classic brick” to a more distinctive English Regency look, defined by “a refined and restrained classicism.” The wooden gallery at the top of the house is new, and the upper porch and previous cast-iron elements are gone. Octagonal paired columns were added, as was a large front porch. The new ironwork was designed by Menzer and crafted by David Doss. The garage now features a handsome cupola with a copper fleur de lis on top designed by W.F. Norman. The pale-grayish blue shutters are by Twisted Dimensions. The grounds of the home — an acre in all — are beautiful, and Marley Fields, a top landscape architect, redesigned the front yard. As we moved inside, I was told that the changes to the library at the right front of the house entailed adding three Palladian windows in place of the original bay. The entire left side of the house was taken down to the

studs, principally to add a new study at the front and a downstairs master bedroom and bath at the back. Menzer designed all the ceilings and cabinetry in the addition, with an eye to adding “importance” (as he calls it) and making the new construction appear to be original. The dining room was renovated; added on was a gallery featuring four columns on pedestals and barrel vaulting. Both the high-gloss ceiling in the dining room and the stunning peachgloss ceiling in the new gallery are by Bridgette Speake’s company, The Finished Product LLC.

The dining-room chairs were re-covered with custom Edelman leather in a pearl-pink color. In the master suite, Julie Ellis’ closet is pure perfection — every woman’s dream — with its glass doors to dust-proof her wardrobe. The bedroom itself has a beautiful paneled ceiling and the walls are painted with a serene Benjamin Moore Linen White. Richard Martin painted the end table, in addition to other pieces in the dining room and gallery, and he also painted the lantern overhead “to quiet it down and allow the ceiling to dominate.” The custom acrylic desk is by

The dreamy Lee Jofa print is a muted cream, blue and green neutral; the painting over the bed is a contemporary by Tom Clifton. This new master bath is indeed luxurious and beautiful with its H.R. Ford hardware, which Menzer calls the room’s “jewelry.” The finished product is every inch the quiet, peaceful retreat that Julie Ellis had envisioned. Carolyn Jones told me that her training was not about creating a particular “look”; rather it was helping her clients find their own taste by helping them think of things that they might not have thought of. The attention to detail in Oscar Menzer’s plans for the home was little short of amazing. For him, proportion is all-important, as he feels that “it is easy to get a room

too big, and lacking in grace.” As George Ellis likes to say, “When Menzer says one-sixteenth of an inch, he really means it.” Julie added that if she mentioned any problem, Menzer would find the solution and, as a result, “everything was done right.” Both Ellises call Menzer “a Renaissance man,” and theirs is a mutual admiration society, to say the least. Julie has even become Menzer’s enthusiastic opera-going buddy at the Met Live series at The Paradiso. It was of course left to Ryan Anderson and his superintendent, Chris Clark, to turn Menzer’s masterful plans into a magnificent reality. While the scope of the work grew (as it often does), Anderson at the end of the day knew that the finished product was worth it.

He praised his employees as well as the expertise of his “A-team of subcontractors” which, to his mind, sets his high-end residential construction company apart from the rest. And judging by the proliferation of little green and white RKA signs on projects dotted around the city, Anderson’s company’s talents have not gone unnoticed here. For her part, Julie Ellis adds that “not one day

passed” that they did not have someone from RKA on-site with the project. The result is a stunning home, and based on the satisfaction of the homeowners I’m betting this is likely to be their last renovation — at least for a while! All were key players in the resulting perfection of the place, and, as Julie says admiringly, “George said no to very little.” If you ask me, that is really saying something.

P O T s ’ 8 1 0 2 TORS C O D Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is a healthcare research and information company founded in 1991 by a former medical college board chairman and president to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and top hospitals. Castle Connolly’s established nomination survey, research, screening, and selection process, under the direction of an MD, involves many hundreds of thousands of physicians as well as academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and regional and community hospitals all across the nation. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Its online nominations process — located at castleconnolly.com/nominations — is open to all licensed physicians in America who are able to nominate physicians in any medical specialty and in any part of the country, as well as indicate whether the nominated physicians are, in their opinion, among the best in their region in their medical specialty or among the best in the nation in their medical specialty. Careful screening of the doctors’ educational and professional experience is essential before final selection is made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers. The result — we identify the top doctors in America and provide you, the consumer, with detailed information about their education, training, and special expertise in our paperback guides, national and regional magazine “Top Doctors” features, and online directories. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.

MID-SOUTH DERMATOLOGY AND SKIN CANCER CENTER

r. Malika Tuli gravitated toward dermatology for personal reasons. “I had a lot of skin problems growing up and spent a lot of time in the dermatologist’s office,” she says. “So I had a unique insight. When you experience something like that, you have empathy for your patients and you can see yourself, sometimes, in their shoes.” Tuli has practiced at Mid-South Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center in Bartlett since 2001. While her work covers a range of dermatology-related issues, from surgery for melanoma or growths to removing atypical moles, her primary focus is on Mohs micrographic surgery — considered “the gold standard” of skin cancer treatment for basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma. Skin cancer can present itself in a number of ways. Patients may have an area that bleeds or flakes. There may be a crusty growth, a scaly patch, or a dark mole that changes color, shape, or size. But, Tuli says, it depends on the cancer. “Often, it’s an area that they realize just isn’t healing, doesn’t seem to be healthy skin, itching perhaps.” Mohs surgery isn’t used for every type of skin cancer. It’s typically utilized for aggressive cancers or cancers in cosmetically sensitive areas, such as the face, ears, scalp, head, or neck. For the procedure, the doctor acts as both the surgeon and pathologist. “The cancerous tissue is removed, and while the patient is waiting in your office, you perform the pathology on that tissue,” Tuli says. “Right then and there, you can inform the patient if the cancer is still present and you can go back and

take more, if needed. Patients are often very happy that they do not have to come back on subsequent visits to have the cancer fully removed.” Tuli also does some work with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She’s recently seen a young patient who is involved in a study for a cancer treatment that can cause skin side effects. “I’m part of that protocol,” says Tuli, “assessing the child for side effects possibly related to the medicines. The lovely thing about dermatology is you treat all generations.” Through her 17 years in practice, Tuli has seen important advancements in various aspects of dermatology, including new medical treatment options for patients with advanced melanoma. “We’ve also seen amazing breakthroughs in the treatment of psoriasis and eczema,” she says. “We have many more tools now to offer our patients. It’s a really exciting time to be in dermatology because every day there are new medicines coming out. And the great thing about these new advancements is that they really help the quality of life of the patient. In the end, that’s really what we’re trying to achieve.” Tuli’s husband, Salil Goorha M.D., is a hematologist/oncologist and is program director of bone marrow transplant at Baptist Memorial Hospital. They both enjoy serving the community. “I get to be part of so many people’s lives, and it’s a privilege to be able to take care of them. They trust me with their skin, their health, and it’s very rewarding,” says Tuli. “It can be a challenging profession, but it gives you such a great purpose.” — Shara Clark

DR. THOMAS “QUIN” THROCKMORTON

A

CAMPBELL CLINIC

t a Throckmorton family reunion, if anyone asked, “Is there a doctor in the house?” a dozen people might raise their hands. Dr. Quin Throckmorton, an orthopaedic specialist with Campbell Clinic since 2009, is one of 12 physicians in his family. His father is a general surgeon in Iowa, and his wife, Alyssa, is an oncologist with Baptist Medical Group. Throckmorton, raised in a small town in Iowa “that nobody’s heard of,” attended Vanderbilt University and earned his medical degree from the University of Iowa, then completed his residency at Vanderbilt. Though he was originally interested in surgery, he decided to specialize in orthopaedics after interning in the spinal treatment department at Vanderbilt. He switched to shoulders and elbows, though, “because that’s just about the only place where you can be comprehensive,” he says. For hip and knee surgeries, for example, one physician might handle fractures, and another might handle joint replacement. “With shoulders and elbows,” says Throckmorton, “we do it all. It’s a way to be holistic about a certain part of the body, and that always appealed to me.” Elected this year to the board of directors of the American Academy of Othopaedic Surgeons, Throckmorton is also a member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons, and is the 2016 recipient of the national Charles S. Neer Award for clinical research involving recovery after surgery. He’s witnessed important advances in his field in recent years. Among the most important is the “reverse total shoulder,” an innovative approach to replacing the shoulder joint that eliminates problems with the cluster of tendons called the rotator cuff, which controls shoulder

motion. “The prevalence of rotator cuff disease made the traditional shoulder joint replacement not very reliable,” he explains. In this new procedure, the positions of the “ball and cup” joint are reversed, and the results have been remarkable. “A few years ago, a survey question asked, ‘what’s the most important advancement in shoulder surgery in the past 20 years?’ and the reverse [procedure] won by a landslide,” he says. “It’s changed the way we treat many conditions.” Other advances are improvements in the materials used for replacement joints and an increase in minimally invasive procedures. “When I was going through training, a rotator cuff repair could mean a couple of days in the hospital,” Throckmorton says, “but now patients go home the same day, and the complication rate is much lower.” What does he hope for the future? “I’d like to see more durable joint replacements,” he says, “where the new joint is good not just for 20 years, but for 30 and even 40 years.” Although significant advances have been made to procedures for treating elbow injuries, the shoulder remains a challenge, and “if somebody can figure out a way to make the rotator cuff heal, that would be very helpful. You have a wider range of motion in the shoulder than any other joint in the body, and the rotator cuff is a particularly capricious group of tendons, that doesn’t want to heal on its own.” Treatment for a torn rotator cuff can range from physical therapy to surgery — followed by more physical therapy. Even so, “the pace of research has been so brisk, and in the past five years of my field I’ve seen a whirlwind of innovation,” says Throckmorton. “This is the golden age of shoulder surgery.” — Michael Finger J U N E 2 0 1 8 • M E M P H I S M A G A Z I N E .

LE BONHEUR CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

or Dr. Patricia Dubin, the chief of pediatric pulmonology and and sleep medicine at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, the path to her specialty had been set since her undergraduate pre-med track. Her chemistry professor’s young daughter had a big presence in the department and around campus, but she had cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease common in the U.S. “Through her,” says Dubin, “I saw what cystic fibrosis really could do to a family in terms of how this chronic disease could impact family dynamics, and just how devastating it is to a community to have a young child die from such a prolonged and involved disease process. When I saw that, I knew that’s something I’d be really interested in becoming involved in.” Dubin attended the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. Her residency sent her to Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital; after New Haven she completed a three-year fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, staying on as a faculty member there for another 10 years. Once the call from Le Bonheur came, Dubin had an easy decision to make. “When I interviewed at Le Bonheur, I was struck by what a great community it is," she says. "The leadership at an institutional level was also very open, very supportive, and very committed to developing programs that would help this community specifically, but would also expand those programs to improve care throughout the region.” At Le Bonheur, Dubin oversees research and programs in the fields of pulmonology and sleep medicine, covering conditions such as asthma, primary ciliary

dyskinesia, and respiratory issues related to cancer or hematology. One program specifically designed to help asthma is Le Bonheur’s CHAMP Program. The program is dedicated to improving outpatient care for Shelby County patients with severe asthma. “There are severe asthmatics who are at high risk for hospitalization or severe illness, so this program was developed to help deliver better outpatient care so that they weren’t getting sick or at as high a risk of an asthma attack," she says. "That way they could go about their normal lives, go to school, and enjoy everything. Some of the innovations in that program were shown to have great impact on many factors, like hospitalization, ICU stays, duration of illness. Folks are actually doing much better because of that program.” Going forward, Dubin wants to be more involved in research aimed at sickle-cell disease. That will be achieved through a program that identifies and manages respiratory and sleep complications specifically caused by sickle-cell disease. Beyond that, asthma is still a main focus of Dubin and the pulmonology department, with Le Bonheur seeing around 3,500 cases a year. She isn’t fazed by the volume, however, and believes she’s in the right place to make a difference for the Mid-South. “The leadership and the faculty here really look at the right types of programs and the way to deliver the right kind of care. I just love taking care of kids; they’re a joy to work with every day. I like adults too, but I have to say, when you take care of kids day in and day out, there’s no greater joy for me.” — Samuel X. Cicci

NO PERSON IS AN ISLAND. Supremely capable. Thoughtfully decisive. Willing, when necessary, to go it alone. In other words, you. In your business, you’re used to taking responsibility for transformational decisions – protecting others from risk and shielding them from undue stress. It makes sense that asking for help with a behavioral health issue, such as mental illness or substance abuse, might be hard for you. That said, you know you can’t go it alone. Not this time. The Landing was created to provide treatment and care for working professionals and high-functioning people just like you. Our approach (the result of years of clinical experience) has shown high-functioning patients can be connected to the outside world and still realize treatment success.

Behavioral health treatment for working professionals.

In fact, at The Landing, patients can stay connected with home and work while receiving care – and keep up with the duties of their real-world lives.

MM_FullPage_TrimSize_9x25_11x125.indd 1

Whether yours is a mental health issue, substance abuse problem or a combination of both, a team of accomplished professionals at The Landing will develop a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs. Furthermore, treatment takes place in a patient-centric environment where safety and comfort are paramount. This includes a private, modern room with access to a fitness studio and business center.

Together, getting you back to you.

Our holistic offerings such as equine assisted psychotherapy, instructor-led yoga and meditation sessions are part of the experience. So, too, are chef prepared, organic meals.

The Landing’s top-flight team, modern amenities – and programs that employ the latest modalities for treating mental illness and substance abuse – are reasons why so many professionals choose The Landing for their care. At The Landing, our philosophy is simple: No person is an island nor should they ever feel alone. Call us at 901.500.8517.

MODERN DENTISTRY OF MEMPHIS Drs. John Reddick and Mark MacGaw have a unique practice in Memphis specializing in high-end dentistry. Having been the leader in cosmetic and comprehensive dentistry for several years, they have expanded their specialization to treat craniofacial pain and sleep breathing disorders. “We now realize dentistry plays an integral role in the entire health of an individual, and therefore we treat the person and not just teeth. We address your body’s inflammation, mouth breathing, poor sleep or apnea, and the resulting head, neck, jaw and ear pain that ensues. Putting all the pieces together allows us to help patients decrease pain, increase energy, and improve sleep. Sometimes dentistry is involved, and other times a custom appliance is all that is necessary to get results. However, if you do need dentistry, prepare to be amazed by your smile!” Visit us at memphistmjsleep.com. Memphis Magazine’s

TOGETHER KIT S. MAYS, M.D. AND MOACIR SCHNAPP, M.D. have created what is now the oldest and most well-regarded pain management facility in the Mid-South. Dr. Mays’ and Dr. Schnapp’s clinical and pharmacologic research and pioneering work in nerve blocks spans over three decades. Effective treatment requires comprehensive evaluation by experienced physicians. The patients seen by Dr. Mays and Dr. Schnapp have access to diagnostic expertise gained from years of interventional pain management. For the best clinical outcome and functional improvement, diagnosis and treatment may include nerve blocks, medication management, and physical therapy. The physicians confer to make decisions on patient care. They are a perfect balance as personality opposites, but in pain management, they have one focus: relieving the suffering patient and meeting the challenges of the patient in pain. Their interest also extends to the design, development and production of rehabilitation instruments for the treatment of complex regional pain syndrome. They broke new ground together, and now continue in their indefatigable quest for answers and advances in the treatment and management of patients with pain. Each patient is treated individually with compassion, and always see a physician on each visit. Mays and Schnapp Pain Clinic and Rehabilitation Center is the only CARF certified outpatient pain clinic in the state as well as the region and is a Tennessee certified pain management clinic. The physicians’ private practice, physical therapy, and ambulatory surgery center are all in one convenient location. When the problem is pain, we’re here to help: world class care in the heart of the Mid-South.

DR. ARCOT has six board certifications including interventional cardiology, cardiology, venous disease, vascular, and endovascular medicine. He received his cardiovascular training at the University of California-San Francisco and has trained several practicing cardiologists in peripheral vascular percutaneous intervention. Dr. Arcot was voted Most Compassionate Doctor 2010-2017 on Vitals.com. Memphis Cardiology and Vein Center was voted among the best clinics in the Commercial Appeal in 2014, 2015 and 2016. At Memphis Vein Center, we treat all types of vascular problems from the simple to the very complex including varicose veins, DVT, peripheral arterial disease, leg ulcers, May-Thurners syndrome, and pelvic congestion syndrome. Dr. Arcot and his highly qualified medical team, who are board-certified in their respective fields, offer comprehensive treatment for all vascular conditions including venous and arterial diseases. Varicose veins are abnormal veins that occur in the legs. They can be small, thin, purple lines (called spider veins), or they can appear as thick, bulging, or knotty veins. SYMPTOMS OF VARICOSE VEINS: • Achy, tired, heavy feeling in the area of the varicose veins • Leg cramps, restless legs at night

SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION

• Burning or throbbing pain along with swelling of the legs • Itching, rashes, bleeding • Discoloration of the foot • Non-healing ulcers • History of blood clots • Pain with menstruation While most people think that varicose veins are simply a cosmetic issue, an underlying medical problem often causes varicose veins; it’s called venous reflux/venous obstruction. In a normal vein, valves work to move the blood back to the heart. When a valve malfunctions it causes the blood to pool in the vein, a disorder known as venous insufficiency, which causes varicose veins. The procedure is covered by most insurance companies. Memphis Vein Center is the only outpatient stateof-the-art, accredited vascular facility (IAC) to offer all modalities to treat varicose veins, including endovenous laser ablation treatment (EVLT), radio frequency (VNUS), Varithena, Venaseal and venous stenting for May-Thurners syndrome, as well as ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, and a microsurgical procedure called phlebotomy. Please visit memphisvein.com for further information about varicose veins including personal testimonials and before-and-after pictures.

Forge, Form & Function Artist Blacksmithing at the Metal Museum by anna traverse

S

hould you find yourself presented with an opportunity to get up close and personal with a vat of molten metal, I humbly

suggest that you seize it — the opportunity, mind you, not the blazing-bright metal, from which one ought maintain a respectful distance. Until scarcely more than a year ago, I worked for a company that manufactured copper and brass products — pipes, fittings, forgings, rods, valves, you name it: the veins and arteries of offices and autos, houses and hospitals that most of us ignore until water is flowing out of somewhere it shouldn’t, or not flowing out of somewhere it should.

Most days, my corporate-headquarters work put me nowhere near the darkly lit, green-flamelicked, Hephaestus-ruled noisy cauldrons of the manufacturing plants. But occasionally, behind a pair of safety glasses, I saw copper turned and flipped and formed, one part underworld magic and one part Play-Doh Fun Factory. We know that metal is formed somewhere, by someone or something — but seeing it in the glowing, ignited process is something else entirely, rather like being a visitor from a planet of only ice and watching for the first time as it melts to water.

FORGE, on display in the Gasparrini Galleries at the Metal Museum through August 19th, presents the forged metalwork of some 15 contemporary artist blacksmiths. The exhibit, a collaboration between Hereford College of Arts, in the West Midlands, UK, and the Ruthin Craft Centre, in Ruthin, North Wales, is traveling internationally, and makes its only U.S. stop in Memphis. ACTION PHOTOGRAPHS BY BRANDON DILL

Form and function, beauty and utility: the work in FORGE explores the spaces between these notions and traditions. A metal tool may appear destined to be ever thus, ever itself, but in FORGE, we watch it transform into something else entirely. From noun — furnace, hearth, an anvil beside — to verb: to forge ahead, to innovate. To transform. Nils Hint’s Cutlery, for instance, takes ready-made forged iron components — pliers, wrenches, the sort of thing you might find hanging in a grimy garage — and elongates their handle-ends until they turn graceful, morphs them into spoons, ladles, delicate forks and knives, then gilds the new ends, the ones ‘worthy’ of display, until they gleam. Depending on, quite literally, how you handle the Estonian blacksmith’s dual-sided implements, you will find them to be either utilitarian or opulent. The hand is the furnace that turns the metal into what it shall be. In his Brick series, St. Petersburg-based Egor Bavykin folds sheets of f lat, thin metal into intricate, drapily curved patterns, like paper or pastry, then below Egor Bavykin, Brick, 2017 Forged steel

slices the stacks into the shape of bricks. Though forged of steel and copper, Bavykin’s bricks appear to be still bendable and bending, still alive within their six-sided cuboids. A Swedish maker and a New Zealander art historian, Tobias Birgersson and Damian Skinner, offer “15 Ways of Thinking About a Blacksmith” in the back of the exhibit catalogue. One cannot help but be put in mind of Wallace Stevens’ “13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird,” and in particular the lines: “I do not know which to prefer, / The beauty of inflections

right Nils Hint, Cutlery, 2017 Forged iron from readymade components and gilding

/ Or the beauty of innuendoes, / The blackbird whistling / Or just after.” The beauty of intentions or the beauty of functions, one might ask of this work, the blacksmith forging the metal, or just after. Skinner asks, “What is your intention?” He expands, “Everyone should be forced to ask themselves this question, especially people who are going to make giant metal objects that the rest of us have to deal with.” FORGE includes a maquette, or scale model, of Francisco Gazitua’s giant Rosa Nautica, which at 20 meters high has stayed put in Toronto.

Gazitua’s description of his own work, metal possesses its own strain of cool, quiet intelligence, with “one advantage over ours,” writes the Chilean sculptor. “Steel lives in peace in its own tranquility, in the silent coherence of its crystals and mathematical formulae . . . the silence of matter, its strict laws of functionality.” Rosa Nautica seems one part tall ship, one part pocket-watch gear, one part water droplet, and all parts somehow inevitable. I walked through the gallery at the Metal Museum while FORGE was being installed: a beachcomber’s pleasure. Emp-

ty pedestals, freshly painted, drying, awaiting their forged metal occupants. Glass cases on standby for one final sparkle-inspection. Big blue-green quilts spread across the floor to provide a comfortable napping spot for the sculptures, before their ascensions onto the pedestals, beneath the cases. Laid gently on its side to float upon one of the quilts, like some kelp-spangled length of driftwood bobbing downriver, was a piece in forged steel by Ambrose Burne, a Welsh-born artist trained as a blacksmith and working in Kingston, England. Ferro Seed #1, 2016, unmistakably though indeterminately organic-looking, is a rhythmic shudder of curled tendrils along a central curved steel limb, or stem. Burne envisions his work by gathering information in nature — shells and plants and other forms — then drawing what he gathers, analyzing structure and pattern. “To manipulate these drawings into steel,” he comments, “I seek out methods of manipulating the metal: drawing

out, spreading, bending, punching, that will emphasise the essential qualities of the original form.” What results is a piece of steel, heavy and hard, formed and forged by human design, that retains the bright motion of the ‘original’ version designed by nature. Questions of ‘home’ and familiarity flow through the metals of FORGE. Takayoshi Komine’s work possesses a tenderness, a sweetness one might not associate with metalwork. The Japanese artist creates gentle, softly shallow bowls of copper that seem almost like unfired folds of clay, or even freshly rolled sheets

of pastry dough. Komine’s Paper Knife series offers delicate handsized blades, hatched with lines and smudges that suggest ancientness, with looped handles a person might take to be carefully folded leather, but are actually metal themselves. The knives with their inviting handles cue an unspecified nostalgia for an unknown home where these might first have appeared, were they the ancient implements they appear. Another genus of tool appears in Leszek Siko ń’s work. Having heard about church bells smelted to make weapons during World War I, Sikoń went on to learn that left Nancy Cook, exhibitions manager, and Kevin Burge, preparator, install FORGE at the Metal Museum.

any available steel was confiscated in wartime to be melted and reformed as weapons. Sikoń decided to reverse the arrow from tool of creation to tool of war: he creates Shell Tools by forging ammunition from the First and Second World Wars into attenuated shovels and trowels, a scythe, all handled in hickory wood curved to glove but not obscure the steel itself. Sikon’s tools of art, all forged by traditional blacksmithing techniques, are displayed alongside the shells and muskets they once were. The solidity of the tools on display here is belied by the presence of muskets beside them, reminders that even the most hardened steel object can be reimagined and reformed at any moment: now plowshares, now swords, and back again to plowshares (which are now art). Daniel Randall’s series of house-like sculpted structures are both familiar and playfully strange: his simple-seeming steel houses atop elongating steel legs formed like bridges and culminating in darkly stained wood feet, that themselves seem more like river stones. Randall’s work arrives plucked from a world with variable levels of gravity: the bridges beneath his small iron houses either groan and flatten toward earth, or narrow to a concentrated point, and perch. Because Stephen Yusko’s small steel and glass vessels were not yet under glass when I visited, I watched as their tops, or roofs, were positioned. Yusko has included small guide marks so that the roof of each structure fits perfectly, snugly — fits, that is to say, like home fits. FORGE was curated by Delyth Done, leader of the Artist Blacksmithing BA course at Hereford College of Art. Drawing on a

tradition of artist blacksmithing, the exhibition asks where the legacy of innovative metalworking, which took shape especially during the Industrial Revolution in Wales and England, finds itself in the twenty-first century, and around the globe. In Done’s curator’s overview, she writes, “In recent years, the practice of artist blacksmiths has transformed. Contemporary artist blacksmiths are creating original and cohesive bodies of work, works which engage not only with the practices and forms of traditional blacksmithing, with its focus on material, process and function, but also with many broader cultural, environmental, and socio-political conversations . . . giving focus to an international community of artist blacksmithing driven by ideas and concept as much as by process and material.” The Metal Museum will host a gallery talk on Sunday, June 24th, featuring curator Delyth

Of course, there is Nashville to the east and New Orleans to the south, but other gems of the soul, R&B, and jazz that Memphians love sit right under our noses, perfect for a weekend jaunt. One need only steer to the southeast for a musical pilgrimage that’s off the beaten path.

he name “Muscle Shoals” is familiar to any music fan, being the point of origin for many a great soul record by Aretha Franklin, Percy Sledge, Arthur Alexander, and others. A 2013 documentary took its title from that Alabama city’s name, two words that instantly evoke the soulful sounds that really blossomed in four neighboring cities which, with Florence, Tuscumbia, and Sheffield, are often called simply “The Shoals.” (The city’s peculiar name, incidentally, is not a salute to body-building, but taken from

mussel beds originally found at this particular bend along the Tennessee River.) For a more detailed take on how those sounds were first laid to wax, I delved into Music Lessons, Vol. 1, the memoir of Norbert Putnam, a bassist and producer who grew up in Florence. “I became a musician because of Sam Phillips and Elvis Presley,” he writes. When Sun Records singles began rocking the world, Phillips’ humble origins in Florence, and his days as a DJ there, were not lost upon local youth. Hoping to better understand this perspective, I called on Norbert

Florence Alabama Music Enterprises (better known as FAME) was the first custom-built recording studio in the area, and should be the centerpiece of any musical pilgramage.

Muscle Shoals Sound Studio is where seminal recordings from the late 1960s and the 1970s were made by artists from Aretha Franklin to the Rolling Stones, many backed by the Swampers.

himself to guide me through the area’s living history. This affable gentleman, now back in his hometown after a lifetime working on multimillion-selling records, was the perfect guide to the area’s rich history. If playing in teen R&B bands was Norbert’s baptism, gaining the attention of would-be record producer Rick Hall was his ascension to recording artist. Hall, needing a band for then-unknown soul singer Arthur Alexander, recorded Putnam and his associates as they backed the artist/composer in a warehouse. The resulting single, “You Better Move On,” was a hit, leading Hall and two partners to construct the first custom-built studio in the area, Florence Alabama Music Enterprises (FAME). Today, FAME is inevitably the centerpiece of any musical journey to the Shoals. Though it’s still in business over 55 years later, the studio welcomes visitors. If an artist is recording, you’ll still get a tour of the kitschy office area, but most visitors can see the two studios, notable for their fine collection of vintage keyboards, including a mint-condition harpsichord. Though Rick Hall died earlier this year, his son Rodney keeps the business in the family. The studio itself is a testimony to the maverick spirit of the father, who embodied an independent, entrepreneurial approach to

music that many associate with Memphis. In addition to hosting many contemporary artists, the studio is now involved in a television dramatization of FAME’s stellar history. “The last thing my dad did was negotiate that deal,” says the younger Hall. “And he did a good job. It’s produced by Johnny Depp and Richard Branson of Virgin, and it’s been picked up by ABC for a full season. They start shooting at the end of this year. It should be coming out in the fall of 2019.” Norbert Putnam, for his part, is a little wistful about his work there in FAME’s early

days. Having moved on to session work and production in Nashville in 1965, he’s often omitted from history’s retelling of the Shoals’ musical saga. “The ones who could leave, left, because you couldn’t make any money down here,” he muses. The core FAME musicians who stayed ultimately set up their own shop, Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, in 1969. While the studio was not always in business in the decades since then, it has recently met with good fortune. Putnam introduced me to fellow bass player David Hood, one of the original rhythm section members (“the Swampers”) who founded the facility, whose wife Judy is chairman of the nonprofit that owns and operates it. “One night,” she explains, “Dr. Dre saw the Muscle Shoals movie in a tiny theater in Santa Monica, California. And he was so compelled by the story that he decided that night to start a philanthropic wing of Beats By Dre and called it ‘Sustain the Sound.’ The mission would be to take iconic old studios like this one and restore them. And he started with us.” The results have been spectacular, with the once-decaying building now fully operational and decked out with period furniture and recording gear. David Hood’s original bass amp sits where it did 50 years ago, leading me to ask if the recording console is the original. “No,” he says, “but it’s from the period. This was at RCA in Nashville, and then it went to Chet Atkins’ house. He used it, and then it went to other people.” Like FAME, one can tour the studio (if no artists are recording there) and soak in the ambiance heard on the Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses” and countless other hits. To put such history in context, Norbert then whisked me over to the Alabama Music Hall of Fame in nearby Tuscumbia. With exhibits covering musicians of all genres who hailed from the Cotton State, it’s a powerful reminder of how far back Alabama’s musi-

Norbert and I stopped briefly at his own portrait there, but reigning over all the gallery’s inductees was the visage of W.C. Handy, born and raised in Florence. Like Phillips, he’s another reminder of the interwoven histories of the Shoals and Memphis. One can still visit his childhood home and museum in Florence, a log structure that evokes his rustic roots, long before he went on to codify the blues as a notated musical genre. Every year, the W.C. Handy Music Festival lights up the area with over a week’s worth of bands on stages throughout the Shoals (scheduled for July 20-29 this year). At other times of the year, the Shoals Theatre in Florence is an elegant old venue for live music; this year, on June 5th, it will host the 75th birthday bash (featuring John Paul White) for Spooner Oldham, a Shoals-area native who contributed keyboards to many records there and at American Studios in Memphis. Even on a regular weekday, there’s enough in the Shoals to keep a music fan busy for more than one day. And during festivals, you’ll certainly want accommodations. I highly recommend a new “boutique hotel,” the GunRunner (gunrunnerhotel.com), subtly hidden over a coffee shop in the heart of downtown Florence. Its splurge-worthy

s I wrapped up my visit to the Alabama Music Hall of Fame, Norbert pointed out one inductee that he suggested they add: the artist formerly known as Herman “Sonny” Blount, now recognized internationally as the jazz bandleader and composer Sun Ra. Though the nod to him in those exhibits was small, Sun Ra’s vision looms large in the mind of any fan of avant garde jazz. Staring at his photo in the Hall of Fame, I knew I needed to make the short drive to Birmingham to pay my respects to that city’s native son. And if, as Norbert told me, today’s music in the Shoals tends to be either Southern rock or soul, I knew I needed to seek out the swinging heart of Alabama jazz. For my first stop, I hoped to visit the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame, but soon learned that it is in the midst of a complete makeover. In fact, this bodes well for future visitors who love jazz history. Not only will

all exhibits be improved, but according to executive director Dr. Leah Tucker, “the Hall has also just purchased a radio station from Samford University, to be known as WAJH, which will feature all jazz programming. It will be housed in the new theater. They have also partnered with the Birmingham Black Radio Museum project and will house their artifacts.” While the new facility will not open until September of next year, it continues its free educational programs, and its students can be heard at student concerts throughout the year. After getting the lowdown on the Jazz Hall of Fame, I had to continue my own personal quest. Why obsess over Sun Ra, you may ask? His unique vision of musical possibilities is one reason. Certainly he grew up studying more conventional jazz, being a student of the pioneering high school teacher, John “Fess” Whatley, who, like Memphis’ own Jimmie Lunceford, coached his school band into a nationally celebrated ensemble. As a youth, Sun Ra was a fixture of the

Birmingham landscape, frequenting the African-American Masonic Temple, which can still be seen today. But, in part fueled by his own readings at the temple and elsewhere, he became fascinated with more esoteric knowledge. Moving to Chicago, he became an exponent of Afro-futurism, combining racial history with science-fiction themes, in concerts enhanced with costumes and pageantry. Very early in life, his vision outpaced even a large scene like Birmingham’s, and yet his sensibility was deeply informed by “The Magic City.” Ultimately, he would be buried there after his death while visiting family members in 1993. A simple online search reveals the exact plot at Birmingham’s Elmwood Cemetery where his body lies (Block 25, Memorial ID 2682). For this particular fan of avant garde jazz, it was a powerful experience slowly to approach the grave and see that I was not alone in spirit. Others had been there, leaving coins and even cassettes of music, paying homage to a man so far ahead of his time. The unorthodox tokens of devotion were somehow appropriate for this visionary, his art being the sonic equivalent of magical realism. Should you wish to focus more on the world of the living, be assured that there are two excellent jazz clubs in Birmingham, one called Jazzy’s and another called Jazzi’s. Confused? Perhaps you need to rest. For my

At 100, Curt has a razor-sharp mind, with a memory for details, and he’s the very definition of “spry.”

Curt (left) with his father and older brother in Hamburg, Germany, sometime in the 1920s.

Curt Ward would be one of the people on that list. Last year, in the run-up to his 100th birthday, he summoned me to his apartment at Town Village Audubon Park: “I’d like you to write my obituary,” he said in his pronounced German accent. “But you understand, I’m not in any hurry! And don’t make it too long. I hate reading long obituaries.” That obituary — whenever it comes — may well not be lengthy, but Curt’s life has been, and our meeting that day started me on a fascinating journey. Over seven visits, Curt’s story unspooled like a cross between a History Channel documentary and Forrest Gump. At 100, he has a razor-sharp mind, with a memory for details, and he’s the very definition of “spry,” walking with

only a steadying cane. His fridge is stocked with wine, ready for entertaining, and although he no longer drives, he maintains an active social life. His only apparent capitulation to age is poor hearing, which he mitigates with hearing aids that squeal when he’s hugged. Humility is in short supply these days, but Curt’s got it — in abundance. During our first interview, he demurred, insisting he was nothing special. After our meanderings down his memory lane, he finally agreed: “You know, I’ve led a pretty interesting life.”

A German Childhood

K

urt Georg Wertheim (he later Americanized the spelling of his name) was born in Frankfurt, Germany, on September 17, 1917, to

Hermann and Hertha Wertheim. He was the baby by a long shot to older siblings. “I was a surprise,” he says, “but I’m glad I got here!” His father was in private banking, but lost his fortune in the Depression. “We were comfortable, but we went from well-to-do to middle class.” Still, the family employed a cook and two housekeepers, and he enjoyed an idyllic childhood, filled with memories of his family, his dogs Tell (for William Tell) and Bobby, and the luxury of being a “free-range” child. “I started riding a bike early,” Curt remembers. “I went all over the place, and I spent a lot of time in the park near where we lived, with nice botanical gardens and lakes and concerts. I had lots of friends. My mother, particularly, always worried where the hell I was, but when I disappeared, they always knew where to find me.” His Catholic nanny used to take him to church, and despite his strict conservative Jewish upbringing, Curt enjoyed mass. “I liked the ritual and the singing,” he says, “but my parents didn’t know I was going. When I was about 6 years old, they realized, so that was the end of the nanny taking me. Then I started going to Hebrew School.” Curt was well-educated, attending the selective German “gymnasium” school, where he learned French, Latin, and Greek. He also took private English lessons. For 16-year-old Curt, 1933 was a watershed year. Hitler came to power, his father died, he graduated high school, and was apprenticed in Frankfurt to L.S. Mayer, a company that exported German-made products. “We could tell what the future would bring with Hitler,” he says, “and they were already restricting education for Jews, so I went to work, which was an education.” He was promoted to full employee status and moved to Berlin in 1935. “In 1936,” he says, “Berlin was still wide open, because of the Olympic Games, and the fact that Hitler was trying to put forward a good front to the rest of the world. I did go to the Olympics a couple of times, taking some of my American customers.

Unfortunately, I did not get to see Jesse Owens. After the Olympics, things changed very, very rapidly.”

Coming to America

T

he handwriting was on the wall in Berlin, and it was suddenly quite dangerous to be a young Jewish man in Germany. Curt’s siblings were arranging to move to Belgium, with his mother planning to join them later. The family put its efforts into securing passage to America for Curt, which had been a long-held dream of his. “It’s really sort of ridiculous,” he says, “but there were two things I admired about the U.S. I got hold of a Sears & Roebuck catalogue, and I was captivated. The other thing, I had heard about drugstores with soda fountains, and I wanted to see them. It’s silly, but these are the things I thought of America.” He was fortunate to get a visa, because the quota for Jews to immigrate to the U.S. was so low. “I got a strong affidavit of support from Erich Fromm, a cousin, which allowed me to get an appointment with the U.S. Consul in Stuttgart.” Wait, what? The Erich Fromm? The German social psychologist, philosopher, and psychoanalyst? Author of Escape from Freedom and The Art of Loving? Yes, that Erich Fromm. Curt’s grandmother and Fromm’s father were sister and brother. The visa was granted, and Curt booked passage on the S.S. Manhattan of the American Line. “The crossing took about five or six days. I was 20 years old, and I arrived in the U.S. on November 11, 1937, with my personal belongings in one suitcase.” Within the Erich Fromm Archives at the New York Public Library is a folder labeled “Wertheim, Kurt,” containing correspondence surrounding Curt’s quest to escape Nazi Germany. There are letters, in German, between young Curt and Fromm. In one, Fromm asserts that he is “very fond of Kurt Wertheim,” and invites him to come and “make his home” with him in New York. When Curt’s ship docked in

New York, Fromm came to the boat, signed the paperwork admitting him into the U.S., and announced, “Excuse me, I have an appointment. Come see me for lunch tomorrow. Then he was gone.” So much for Fromm inviting Curt to “make his home” with him. “That was a rough beginning,” understates Curt. “But I met a man at the pier that night, and he took me to the Hotel Belleclaire on Broadway, where I spent the first few nights until I could situate myself.” Curt loved New York, where he lived from November 1937 until the spring of 1939. “I made $15 a week, but I never missed a meal. My furnished room on the Upper West Side was $8 a week. Subway fare was five cents; I got breakfast for 25 cents at a place called Nedick’s, and you could get dinner for 75 cents at the Automat.

Within the Erich Fromm Archives at the New York Public Library is a folder labeled “Wertheim, Kurt,” containing correspondence surrounding Curt’s quest to escape Nazi Germany. “The most exciting thing was the vibrancy and the enormous amount of entertainment and education available at little or no charge,” he continues. “I took English lessons at night school, and I had a lot of friends, and we had get-togethers on the weekends. I wouldn’t take anything for those two years in New York.”

ne of Curt’s most marked characteristics has been his ability to make friends wherever he goes. Through one of his New York acquaintances from Hamburg, he met a woman who said, “If you ever go to Memphis, you must look up my niece, Mildred Haas.” This would prove to be a fateful connection. Since the Depression still gripped New York, Curt decided there might be more opportunity if he were to take the advice of people who told him to go west. He had a friend from Frankfurt, Walter Bacharach, who was living in Memphis, so he decided to add “south” to the “west” dictum. In spring 1939, he boarded a bus, arriving three days later in Memphis. Upon his arrival, Bacharach met him and introduced him to Bertrand Cohn, a local lawyer. In keeping with the custom of the times, Cohn suggested Curt Americanize his name. “I changed my name from Kurt Georg Wertheim to Curtis George Ward,” he remembers, “and I’ve always regretted it,

because I lost my identity.” Cohn’s wife’s family had a lumber mill in northern Louisiana, and Curt moved there briefly to take a job working in the “company store” for employees. “That was a culture shock,” Curt says. “All the employees were black, and I’d never really seen any black people in Germany or New York, and I didn’t know there was supposed to be any difference. So I treated them well, and they all liked me, and I became the top salesman. At first, I didn’t even know what ‘two bits’ meant, and it was hot as hell down there. The food was good country food, so I probably gained more weight than ever in my life.” In the fall of 1939, a call came about an opening in the Mayer-Myers paper company, and Curt returned to Memphis.

But we did find some, and we turned them over to the military police.” Curt speaks of the way in

which they interrogated the German POWS, and he mentions that “we tried to make them comfortable, at home. The more comfortable they felt, the more information they gave us.” The war was winding down. The word came out on February 4, 1945, that Belgium (where Curt’s family relocated) had been liberated. “I left that night,” he says. “It was a harsh winter and I drove all night in an open Jeep, and the exhaust pipes kept freezing up, so we had to keep stopping. We got to [a pay phone in] Brussels and after a couple of calls, I found some friends of my brother, and they found him. It was an emotional reunion. “My mother, my brother, and his wife were okay, but my sister and brother-in-law and their daughter had been deported shortly before the liberation and died in Auschwitz. “For a long time,” Curt says, breaking from his usual sunny demeanor, “I didn’t talk about the Holocaust. In the last couple of years, I’m beginning to because that generation is dying out, and people need to remember.”

Toward the end of the war, he commanded a team that interrogated German POWs. This gave Curt leeway to commute back and forth from Brussels to be with his family. His group was quartered in a picturesque part of the Bavarian Alps, where then-Captain Ward was even able to pursue his childhood hobby of horseback riding. He has another vivid memory of those last days in Germany: “When FDR died, I stopped my Jeep and I cried.”

ack home in Memphis in 1946, Curt resumed work for Slumber Products, rising to the position of plant superintendent. “The reason I went back to work,” he says, “instead of college, which was available to Army veterans, was because I wanted to bring my mother over to the United States, which I did in 1950.”

“The essence of my life is that I was blessed with good fortune. I was blessed with a happy childhood. I was blessed to be able to come to the U.S. I was blessed with so many happy coincidences ... I was blessed to have a very happy marriage with Hedi, and to have a fine son in Jeffrey ...” Curt established his mother in an apartment on New York’s Upper West Side, and sent her on vacations with Erich Fromm’s mother to the Catskills and Lake Placid. Along with his financial support, Curt made frequent visits to see his mother. During those visits, another coincidental connection was taking shape. Hedi Schulenklopper was born in 1930 and lived in Frankfurt with her family, where her father owned a shoe factory. Around 1935, her father was picked up by Nazis and sent to Buchenwald concentration camp. He was allowed to come back to Frankfurt on the condition he turn over his factory. Realizing this would not be the end of their troubles, the family decamped for the U.S. Hedi’s family settled in New York. She graduated from New York University, and became a social worker in Harlem. The coincidence: In Frankfurt, Curt’s family lived two doors down from Hedi’s, and he remembers her birth when he was 13. After Curt brought his mother to New York, she became reacquainted with the Schulenkloppers, and during Curt’s many visits, he began dating Hedi. They dated long-distance for seven years, marrying on November 10, 1957,

at New York’s Hotel Brewster. “I’ve made many mistakes,” Curt says, “but the biggest was not marrying Hedi earlier.” Curt and Hedi set up housekeeping in Memphis. Curt was at Slumber Products and Hedi began working for the Shelby County Department of Welfare. Segregated Memphis was an alien culture to Hedi, coming from progressive New York, where her best woman friend was African-American. “Hedi was super-liberal, and very outspoken, so I told her to keep her mouth shut,” Curt remembers, laughing. Their son, Jeffrey Bernard Ward, was born on Halloween in 1960, completing their family. Curt’s career with Slumber Products flourished as he cycled through many positions. Around 1957, Slumber became the exclusive Sealy mattress manufacturer for most of the Southern states and areas east of the Mississippi River to Georgia. One of Curt’s tasks was spearheading the company’s “dealer trips.” Starting in 1963 with a trip to Puerto Rico, Slumber sponsored incentive trips for furniture store owners. Any store that sold a certain number of Sealy mattresses earned slots on the weeklong vacations. Every couple of years, upwards of 300 people would board a charter plane for destinations across the globe. Although a travel agency organized the nuts-and-bolts of the trips, Curt was the point person at

He retired at the age of 70. He and Hedi then traveled with gusto, returning to their favorite spot in California — Carmel — 19 times. A yearly trip to Brussels to visit Curt’s brother was always on their agenda. Hedi and Curt were married nearly 50 years when Hedi died in 2007. Today, Curt wears two wedding rings — “One for Hedi, one for me.” For Curt’s 100th birthday last year, 25 friends and relatives — from Israel, California, New York, Utah, and Memphis — gathered at Erling Jensen’s restaurant to toast him. Afterward, he sent handwritten thankyou notes, along with this message: “I’ve had happy times throughout my life — I never had a bad day. “The essence of my life is that I was blessed with good fortune. I was blessed with a happy childhood. I was blessed to be able to come to the U.S. I was blessed with so many happy coincidences ... I was blessed to have a very happy marriage with Hedi, and to have a fine son in Jeffrey ... “Memories are very select. We can disband bad ones and cherish the good ones. The best one in my bank of memories was my 100th birthday party … I shall cherish this experience forever!!”

where clubs clustered in the downtown area host regional bands inside or on special outdoor stages. This year, the festival will be held August 3-4, although the 2018 lineup has not yet been announced. The key Birmingham festival, however, and certainly the most unusual venue, is the multistage event known as SlossFest. The Sloss Furnaces are unique to this city with a history so deeply entwined with iron production. After the massive Sloss pig-iron facility was closed in the 1970s, a movement developed to save this sprawling array of structures as a kind of public industrial park. Now a National Historic Landmark, the Sloss Furnaces serve as both a museum of industry and the site for

many metalworkers to create their art. And so, in both the cavernous, roofed shed and on stages in the surrounding fields, the venue now hosts an annual music festival. This year’s SlossFest, on July 14-15, may feature their biggest lineup yet, with Arcade Fire, Chris Stapleton, GRiZ, The War on Drugs, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, and St. Paul and the Broken Bones (plus more than 30 other bands). It will be a homecoming gig of sorts for the Broken Bones, who formed six years ago in Birmingham before rising to international acclaim in recent years. In a sense, St. Paul and the Broken Bones bring us full circle, back to the soul music that inspired this particular road trip in the first place. While this route took us from the relatively down-home region of the Shoals to the bustling metropolis of Birmingham, the combination felt very familiar to this Memphian. In all the musical encounters you’ll have in either metropolitan area, you’ll find threads of ideas and players connecting them to the Bluff City, as you uncover the musicality spilling over any city limits, informing the entire region and beyond. 112 • M E M P H I S M A G A Z I N E .

ASK VANCE

Botto Toy Company Our trivia expert solves local questions of who, what, when, where, why, and why not. Well, sometimes.

by vance lauderdale DEAR VANCE: When I was a child, my parents took me downtown to a large toy store across from Court Square. What was the name of this establishment, and what happened to it? — m.h., memphis.

DEAR M.H.: My first thought was that it was one of Happy

Hal’s enterprises, since the host of the kiddie TV show had several toy stores around town. My first thought turned out to be wrong, but instead of sulking about it, I did a bit of research — as much as 20 minutes, I’d say — and quickly turned up the name of the store you remember: V.F. Botto & Company. And considering that it proclaimed itself “The Toy Showplace of the South” and its ads and postcards announced that “10,000 Toys

Are Shown Year-Round,” I’m surprised that I didn’t remember it as well as you did. But then again, the Lauderdales thought toys and games made children “soft.” For birthdays and holidays, we were given more useful items: canned goods, barbed wire, matches to sell on the street corner, a new tin cup for begging, things like that. Back to Botto. The company actually has a long and rather convoluted history. And I know this because, well, I’m a Lauderdale, but mainly because I stumbled upon a dormant blog called, rather simply, “Phil’s Thoughts.” Phil happens to be Philip Botto, the grandson of the company founder, and not only did he tell the story of his family’s firm on his blog, I spoke with Phil and his wife, Anna Marie, who are alive and well and living in Collierville. So here’s their story. The family patriarch was Vincent Francis Botto, and sometime in the 1920s he formed a wholesale liquor business. But when Prohibition put a crimp in that, he and a partner decided to try the wholesale tobacco business — selling cigars and cigarettes to grocers, druggists, anybody who would buy them. After a while, they added candy to their line of products. By this time, a son was born, named Vincent David Botto, and he became a salesman for the company, doing quite well when World War II started because he managed to get an exclusive contract with all the military installations in the area. Even though many products were rationed during wartime, according to “Phil’s Thoughts” their business boomed because “these installations had first priority in securing tobacco products as well as candy.” The eldest Botto, Vincent above: As depicted on an Francis (known to everyold postcard, the Botto body as Frank) passed away building at 124 North Court in 1938, and by now the family featured colorful neon by included two grandsons, Phil Balton Sign Company. and his brother, Mitchell. left: In 1961, Vincent D.

around for a new product.

DINING OUT

Specials like this strawberry tart (left) let French pastry chef Franck Oysel (above) be inventive while sticking to his roots.

Meanwhile, at Interim Restaurant owners breathe new life into a longstanding favorite in East Memphis.

O

n a recent Saturday night at Interim, the dining room is full, abuzz with conversations — families, friends, and date-night couples enjoying the restaurant’s wine offerings and new menu options. From our table, a direct view of the expansive open kitchen shows half-a-dozen cooks, busy prepping, plating, and sending out dishes to eager patrons, pots steaming and pans sizzling behind them.

teurs/partners Tony Westmoreland and Brittany and Ed Cabigao (South of Beale and Zaka Bowl) purchased the restaurant. In some ways, things have come full circle for Scott, who was a chef on the opening team for Wally Joe back in 2002. “We found out through the grapevine

When Interim opened in 2006, it was meant be a placeholder for what was to come. After the closing of the former tenant Wally Joe, a restaurant run by renowned chef Joe himself (who now owns Acre) and co-owner Fred Carl Jr., the Viking Range founder who’s credited for the installation of its top-notch open kitchen, Carl opened Interim to keep the space active until he could sell. Through the years, the temporary project became more permanent, though it evolved, rotating chefs — and owners — until last September when chef Nick Scott (co-owner of Alchemy and City Block Salumeria) and restaura-

that it was for sale,” Scott says. “I always loved the restaurant, I loved the kitchen, so this was kind of a no-brainer to me.” Menus have been reimagined, while retaining some standards, like the Claybrook Farm burger and the mac-and-cheese. The latter is impossibly creamy with pasta bathed in a sauce of fontina, white cheddar, and grana padano, topped with an herb-parmesan panko crust and served in a cast-iron dish. Not your momma’s mac — dare I say better? For starters, we choose the beef carpaccio, which arrives like a fully bloomed f lower, colorful with reds and greens. Gliding the fork across the plate picks up a memorable bite: beef, arugula, discs of crisp potato, grated grana padano, briny capers, and aioli. As we eat, a server delivers an impressive dish to a neighboring diner: a weighty double-bone pork chop sourced from Home Place Pastures in Como, Mississippi. Other popular plates: the ribeye, dry-aged 28 days at City Block Salumeria; and a charcuterie board with three meats like duck prosciutto, lonza, or cured pork tenderloin, and bresaola, salty and sliced paper thin and cured, as well, at City Block. A standout entree among those we choose is the duck carbonara, a juicy duck breast, scored, panseared, and sliced, served along-

MEMPHIS DINING guide

Maciel’s on the Highland Strip features a festive mural inside and a large patio outdoors, where chef Manuel Martinez, pictured (above left) with some of the restaurant’s staff, oversees the grill for Taco Tuesdays. The new restaurant also offers food like spicy shrimp tacos and sopa de pollo authentic to Michoácan, known as the “soul of Mexico” and chef Manny’s home state.

Tidbits: Maciel’s Highland

rimming with carrots, cilantro, avocado, and chunks of tender chicken breast, the sopa de pollo at Maciel’s is curative and comforting. “Give it a stir,” our server suggests, and when we do, rice and crispy tortillas strips float to the top of the bowl like a colorful holiday snow globe. Order a large serving of soup, and you may ask yourself, Do I need a taco, too? Yes, you do. Made fresh to order, Maciel’s tacos in corn tortillas are addictively good. Try Baja tacos, beer-battered fried fish with a bright mango salsa, or carnitas, a specialty of Michoácan, the state in Mexico where chef Manuel Martinez learned to cook, guided by his mother.

Most of the recipes Martinez uses at Maciel’s come from his mother’s kitchen, including the chicken soup. “I talk on the phone with her all the time,” Martinez says, laughing. “I say, Mom, I’m cooking, and it doesn’t look right. What should I do? And she says, try again, try again.” Authenticity in both food and service mean a lot to Martinez. He opened the first Maciel’s downtown in 2015, focusing on tacos and tortas, the foundations of Mexican street food. Friend José Martinez bakes the restaurant’s bolillos, the tortas’ soft oval buns, every day. “We put the pureed beans on the bun, and we use the best meats and cheese,” Martinez says. “To me, the tortas taste like home.” (Pro tip: Remember to grab a slice of José’s

excellent tres leches cake to go.) For the second Maciel’s on the Highland Strip, Martinez partnered with Taylor Berger, but kept the heart of the restaurants the same. The Highland location, however, is larger, with a bar for cantina cocktails like Vampiro, a Mexican-style bloody Mary made with sangrita, tequila, and lime. There’s also a patio for Taco Tuesdays with Martinez at the outdoor grill and a bigger kitchen for weekend brunch, tamales on Saturdays, and an expanded menu. Look for ceviche, tuna tacos, and shrimp cocktail this summer and posole and mole by fall. Maciel’s Highland, 525 S. Highland (901-504-4584) $-$$.

On the Brink Changing times in The Edge district.

t’s customary when asked about Memphis’ progress to brag about the $11 billion in recent new construction, on against-all-odds projects like Crosstown Concourse, and the continuing downtown boom. Regularly overlooked is arguably the most exciting movement under way in Memphis, the one that is working hard to breathe new life into core city neighborhoods like Frayser, New Chicago/Smokey City, Gaston Park, and South City. Redevelopment in such places is a tall order, considering that the area inside the 1970 Memphis city limits has had 170,000 people move away, leaving many neighborhoods with half as many people as they once had. However, most of them still have churches, nonprofits, and community activists that are providing foundations for their neighborhoods’ future.  That’s what makes The Edge one of the more interesting neighborhood revitalization programs in Memphis. It has had no such foundation.  What we now know as The Edge — the area immediately east of downtown — was once a bustling industrial and commercial district, where small manufactur ing companies thrived, bread was baked, ve-

hicles were repaired, and the city’s three largest hospitals dominated the landscape. But the area was largely abandoned after 2000 as large and small businesses closed their doors and/or moved away.    And yet, in the past two years, this overlooked neighborhood has given birth to a flock of new businesses, as artisan’s studios, a brewery, cycle shop, and restaurants have opened in the area between Fourth Street, Jefferson, Union, and Manassas. The Edge’s success is a testament to the Memphis Medical District Collaborative, a group of “Eds and Meds” who came together to make the rejuvenation of this part of the inner city a priority. These institutions — Baptist College of Health Sciences, Memphis Bioworks Foun-

dation, Methodist/Le Bonheur While Pacello is encouraged by Healthcare, Regional One the tangible changes in the MedHealth, Southern College of Op- ical District, the intangible signs tometry, Southwest of progress are just The Edge’s success Tennessee Comas motivating.
