Rotary Club Honors Leslie


In 1939, Ed Leslie joined Rotary Club 29 in Oklahoma City and took a job with Mutual Life Insurance Co. of New York.

Now, 62 years later, he still services accounts with MONY in the Oklahoma City office and is still a member of the Rotary Club.

And over his 62 years as a member of Club 29, Leslie has a record of perfect attendance -- one of only 11 Rotarians in the United States with perfect attendance of 50 years or more.

Club 29 President Page Dobson presented Leslie with its Service Above Self award on Tuesday in recognition of his perfect attendance. Leslie, who will be 90 years old in November, has held virtually every office in the club. He was president in 1957-58. Club 29 was formed in 1911, the same year Leslie was born. In the club's 90 years, the Service Above Self award has only been presented only 18 times.

Reed gets Kerr-McGee post

Kerr-McGee Chemical has named Grant O. Reed vice president of stored power systems.

He will be responsible for the company's interest in Avestor Corp., a 50/50 joint venture with Hydro-Quebec, Canada's largest electric company.

Reed, who has 33 years of experience in the chemical industry, was senior vice president of ProCorp. His experience includes five years with LaRoche Industries as president and chief executive officer, six years with Degussa Corp. as executive vice president and eight years with Ashland Chemical Co., where he served as assistant general manager and vice president and general manager.

Tulsa reviews U.S. Open

Tulsa officials this week are tallying the U.S. Open's impact, both economic and image-wise.

The event pumped in more than $60 million to the city and gave Tulsa a chance to shine. Between 35,000 and 50,000 people watched golf tournament play daily at Southern Hills Country Club and more than 11,000 attended for Monday's playoff. Retief Goosen shot an even-par 70 to win his first major tournament.

"Southern Hills has always had a great history of golf, and this has been a very good experience for us," said Marty Parkes, senior director of communications for the United States Golf Association. "And you can't say this could have been more exciting or challenging for the players."

Parkes said he didn't encounter the usual concerns about traffic and adequate concession stands in Tulsa's event, but did come across friendly and helpful Tulsans throughout the week. …
