. Cranberries; : the national cranberry magazine. Cranberries. oblxruARV DANIEL "JIM" CROWLEY Daniel James "Jim" Crowley, 88, of the Long Beach, Wash, area, died June 9 at the Ocean Beach Hospital. He was born Sept. 13, 1889 in Dunmanway, Ireland and came to the United States in 1909. The well-known cranberry plant specialist and grower became a naturalized citizen while in the army on June 1, 1918. Crowley attended Washington State College (now University) at E*ullman in October 1919 and later graduated in 1923 with a degree in plant pathology. He married Ruth Lindsey on August 27, 1920 while they both were students at the college. During his years on the penin- sula since 1923, Crowley was super- intendent of the Coastal Washing- ton Research and Extension Unit at Long Beach from 1923 to 1954. iis work included research on problems mvolvmg weeds, msects and plant diseases. Crowley is known to have saved the cranberry industry for the state of Washington through his research dealing with sprinkling for frost protection. His experiments began shortly after he became superin- tendent and the method has since become standard procedure for cranberry growers. In 1970, Washington State Uni- versity officials announced that a cranberry selection had been offi- cially designated in his honor by calling it "Crowley" as a reflection of appreciation from cranberry growers for his assistance given to the cranberry industry of the Paci- fic Northwest and for his leadership of the research station. Between 1954 and 1960, Crowley acted as a cranberry con- sultant and was involved in the development of a family cranberry bog. Following the 1959 "cranberry chemical scare," Crowley was called out of retirement by Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc. to act as a field represeniaiive lo oDtam complete accounts of chemicals used by the growers in the growing areas of the state of Washington. He was a charter member of the Ocean Beach Presbyterian Church
