Remembering Carl Wesley Martin: 'Encyclopedia man' traveled world
By: PAUL EAKINS - Staff Writer
CARLSBAD -- Perhaps it was his love of knowledge that led Carl Wesley Martin, known to most as "Wes," into the encyclopedia industry.
Or maybe it was the other way around, said his wife Aldea Martin.
Either way, the former Carlsbad resident's intelligence was what got him ahead in life, and it was also what got him his second wife at almost 80 years of age, she said.
"When you get to be 80 years old, all men, they dodder and they aren't interesting," Aldea Martin said Monday. "I wouldn't be interested in those people. If I ever found anybody, it would have to be somebody who stood up straight, walked well, talked well. And this man was brilliant."
Wes Martin died of cancer and other illnesses Wednesday at the age of 84, less than five years after remarrying and only six years after returning to live in San Diego County following a long absence.
Martin came from humble roots, growing up in Portland, later entering the Navy and training in San Diego. Although his formal education ended at high school, Martin found success working for a publishing company, P.F. Collier & Son, his wife said.
What began as a part-time job selling copies of the World Book Encyclopedia after World War II eventually became a career in which he would travel around the country and advance to the highest ranks of the company, she said.
After a brief stint with Famous Artist School International, for which he worked in Sydney and London, he returned to his previous company, now known as the Crowell-Collier Publishing Co., to take over as president of the World Book Encyclopedia division.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Martin lived in Southern California, including many years in La Jolla where he bought and resold dozens of homes, his wife said.
Before meeting his current wife, Martin married and had three sons and a daughter, and has several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He returned to live in San Diego County at Rancho Carlsbad Country Club Estates in 2000, where he met his future wife.
"We decided we'd better hurry up and get married if we were gonna get married, because you never know what's going to happen tomorrow," she said.
Martin was well-read, a great conversationalist and knew all about computers, and when the couple watched the TV show "Jeopardy" together, he would get most of the answers correct, Aldea Martin said.
"He was interested in everything and everybody and whatever happened in this world," she said.
The 6-foot, 2-inch Wes Martin was handsome and stayed youthful by playing golf and traveling, his wife said, at least until Alzheimer's disease began to slow him down over the last two years.
After a discussion once about whether East Coast or West Coast trees were prettier, Martin took her to his boyhood home in Oregon to make his point, she recalled.
"One day he said to me, 'I'm gonna' show you trees like you've never seen,' and he took me up there, and I was breathless," his wife said.
Carl Wesley Martin
December 19, 1921 - August 23, 2006
Carl Wesley "Wes" Martin, 84, of Carlsbad, Calif., died August 23, 2006, after a long and courageous battle with Alzheimer's, cancer and multiple other illnesses. He was the son of the late Carl Conrad Martin and Elizabeth Hartman Martin. He was born in Portland, Ore., and raised in that area and in Everett, Wash. Wes graduated at the head of his class in Everett High School, he studied most all his life and was an avid reader until illness brought that to an end. His great joy until lately was his ability to answer correctly 85 to 90% of the questions on quiz shows, such as Jeopardy. He bought and sold multiple residences, which became a challenging hobby. He was a golfer for at least 50 years, his major avocation. His tremendous career accomplishments over a lifetime without benefit of higher education, are a source of great pride to Wes, family and friends.
After graduation from Everett High School, in 1939, he worked at the Navy Torpedo Station in Keyport, Wash. Classified by the U.S. Navy as an essential worker, until WWII was nearly over, he entered the Navy, and trained at San Diego, where he vowed to return some day. He served on Guam and was honorably discharged when the war ended.
Upon his release from the Navy, he worked as an apprentice machinist, in Everett, Wash., and part time as a route collector for P. F. Collier & Son in their World Book Division. In 1949, Wes joined the Collier Company full time, and in 1951 was promoted to manager of the Portland office. In 1954, he was transferred to their New York City home office, managing and establishing branch offices throughout the United States. In 1963 his career took him to Chicago, where he joined LaSalle Extension University as executive vice president. In 1968 he became vice president of Famous Artist Schools International (FAS), and moved to Sydney, Australia, and later to London, England, with that company, in charge of all overseas operations. He later returned to the Collier Company, then known as the Crowell Collier Company, as president of their World Book Encyclopedia Division. He moved to Stamford, Conn., and became president of their Overseas Operations, based in their New York offices until he moved to California, where he resided at Laguna Beach and Los Gaviotas, Baja, Mexico.
He retired in 1985, and returned for a short time to Kirkland, Wash. Missing Southern California, Wes returned to Carlsbad, where he has resided at Rancho Carlsbad since October, 2000, and was married to Aldea Halprin, on September 16, 2001. He is survived by his wife; his son, Dean Michael Martin and daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Martin of Glen Ellyn, Ill.; his daughter, Janice Martin of Portland, Ore.; and his son, Anthony Martin and daughter-in-law, Sharon, of Kirkland, Wash. One son, Ronald Wesley Martin, his eldest, predeceased him on July 21, 1989. He is also survived by eight grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren; his son-in-law, William J. Collins of Ramona, Calif.; a half-sister, Cecelia Finley Cling of Athens, Texas; and a half-brother, William Finley of Logansport, Ind.
There will be a memorial service on September 6, at 2 p.m. at Rancho Carlsbad, 5200 El Camino Real, Carlsbad, CA.
Memorial donations may be made to UCSD Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer's Research Center, 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla, CA 92093-0948, San Diego, CA, or VITAS Innovative Hospice, 9655 Granite Ridge, Suite 300, San Diego, CA 92123.
|MARTIN, Carl Wesley (I1360)
Thomas, a farmer, was born most probably in Gloucestershire, England about 1590. The particular location of his birth within Gloucestershire is not known, however numerous Bliss records are traced to the Painswick area which has been termed "Bliss Country" by other researchers. He resided in Rodborough, Gloucestershire at one time, and a son Nathaniel was born there. However, there were very few Blisses resident at Rodborough at that time and in fact no Bliss testators lived there during Thomas' stay. It was not the place of his birth nor the place of his ancestors. The reason for his presence was one Margaret Hulins (or Hulings) of Rodborough whom he married in about 1617.
The particulars of the family's arrival in New England are not known, though tradition has preserved a date of 1635. Evidently they lived first at Mount Wollaston (then a part of Boston, now belonging to Braintee), and subsequently removed to Hartford, Connecticut. However, there is nothing to prove these statements. It does, however, appear that Thomas was in America at the time of his father-in-law's death. In February of 1640 he had his land entered into the Hartford records and on one parcel "his dwelling house now standeth." This would indicate that he had been a resident of Hartford for some time, and for lack of any earlier evidence of his presence in America, his arrival in New England was probably in 1638, early enough for the construction of a dwelling house and late enough to not tempt the reality of John Hulins' will, which makes no reference to his daughter residing anywhere but Rodborough. There is, of course, the possibility that Margaret Bliss joined her husband after her father's will had been written. Evidence of Thomas's presence at Hartford prior to 1640 is found in the following excerpt from the Hartford Book of Distributions:
Febr: Anno dom: 1639
Severall Parcells of land in Hertford vpon the River of Conecticott belonging to
Thomas Blisse sen & to his heires forever.
One parcell on which his dwellinge house now standeth with yards or gardnes therein being Contayninge to Estimation two roods (more or less) Abuttinge on the highway leading from John Barnards land toward the North on the west & on Thom Richards land on the North & on Thom Blisse jun: land on the South & on Paul Pecks land on the East.
Thomas and his son, Thomas, Jr., were mentioned in a few other land records. At the division of the lands on the east side of the Great River in 1641, "Thomas Blysse Senior" was given six acres and "Thomas Blysee junior" was given four acres.
Thomas made little impression on the public life of Hartford. He held no public office (though belonging at the time of his arrival to the age-group most liable to civic responsibilities). He had not been among the first comers, and hence held no regular rights of proprietorship. He pleaded but one minor court case, and was himself presented once only for being absent from military training: "March the 4th, 1646. Tho: Blisse for not trayneing, is fyned 2s. 6d." From this account he was probably then under 60 years old, but from the apparent ages of his older children, he was at least over 50.
Thomas died either very late in 1650 or early in 1651 at Hartford. He was possessed of 58 acres of land and the house lot was on a highway west of the present Lafayette Street in Hartford. His estate was inventoried at a meager 86 pounds, 12 shillings and 8 pence on February 14, 1650/51, but since four older children were already married, it is likely that their portions of the estate had already been distributed. Thomas had not written a will, but instead recited it orally to his wife, with his daughter, Mary Parsons, as a witness. As recorded and witnessed by John Pynchon and Henry Smith at the time of his estate's inventory, his will was as follows:
feb: 14th 1650/51. mary parsons of Springfeild the daughter of Thomas Bliss late of Hartford deceased, doth testifie, that when her father lay on his death bed Shee heard her mother Aske him, how hee would dispose of his estate, hee Answered hee would giue it to her, who should haue it elce, her mother asked him if hee would not dispose of it to his Children, her father Answered againe no, her mother Should haue it, this Shee Shall bee ready to testifie if Called therevnto. wittness John Pincheon Hen: Smith.

The New England experience of this man appears, in sum, undistinguished. However, his earlier life may well have been very different. Such at least is the traditional story of the Bliss family during the years just prior to their departure from England. Unfortunately, the story comes down without firm documentation, and is included here only for interest.
Tradition has it that Thomas Bliss, the emigrant, was the son and name-sake of a well-to-do, locally influential citizen in the village of Belstone, county Devonshire. In the opening decades of the 17th century the father, Thomas, Sr. had become a determined advocate of the Puritan cause and had participated with like-minded neighbors in the acts of protest against religious oppression. On one particular occasion, he and three of his sons (George, Jonathan and Thomas, Jr.) had accompanied a party, led by the local member of parliament, in riding up to London to engage both king and archbishop in direct confrontation. The upshot was their imprisonment and the levying of heavy fines (said to have been in excess of £1000) in lieu of their freedom. Payment of the fines required the virtual liquidation of the family estate, and even then there was not enough money to free all four Blisses. Thus one of the sons, Jonathan, remained in jail some while longer, was severely whipped in the public square at Exeter, and never thereafter recovered his health.
Impoverished and broken in his own health, Thomas, Sr. subsequently returned to Belstone and lived in the household of his daughter, Lady Elizabeth Calcliffe. She was the wife of a knighted gentleman who had remained a regular communicant of the Anglican church (thus avoiding persecution). As the crisis of the realm deepened, the father summoned his sons, divided among them what patrimony he still retained, and advised them to remove to New England. Thomas, Jr. and George left soon thereafter; Jonathan was too ill to join them, but sent at least one of his sons in their care. During the years that followed, Lady Calcliffe sought to help her relatives across the sea by sending them periodic shipments of clothing and food. And it was in her personal correspondence -- regrettably, long since lost -- that this part of the Bliss family history was remembered for succeeding generations.
On Feburary 20, 1650/51, the Particular Court gave Margaret full power to administer the estate "if Shee So long Continue a widdow." Margaret, daughter of John Hulins/Hulings and Margaret (____), was born ca 1595. It is evident that she was a woman of more than ordinary force of character. Some of her older children had already settled at Springfield, Massachusetts at the time of Thomas' death, leaving her with the sole care of seven children still in their minority. Margaret wasted no time taking over the management of her husband's estate, and removing with her younger children to Springfield.
Under the date of "Jan ye 22th 1651/2" she appeared as a grantee of three acres "on Pacowsick beginning at ye lower end" in the Springfield Town Votes. She also acquired seven acres on the west side of the Great River opposite her house lot, nineteen and one half acres in Longmeadow, four acres in the same general area, five acres in the second division over Agawam River and three acres on Pacowsick Brook. This estate is bounded today by Main Street on the east, the Connecticut River on the west, Margaret Street on the north and Fremont Street on the south.
Margaret's widowhood would last for another three decades. Her resources at the outset were relatively meager, but she managed - more than managed - with what she had. She made particularly effective use of the courts. She filed, and won, lawsuits on a variety of counts and charges. At the Particular Court of Connecticut "Goody Bliss of Hartford", having received her administration powers, brought suit against William Ayers for the unlawful detaining and wrongful selling of her cow on March 7, 1650/1. Margaret also sued "for damage done in her Indian corn by [the defendant's] swine"; for [defects in] ditching and quick-setting a hedge in her meadow"; for "debt to the value of 35 shillings"; and (this one against the town of Springfield) "for the annoyance she receives by the passage of the water to the mill." She served as guardian to at least two of her grandsons (and sometimes went into court to protect their interests). Her estate, when probated in 1684, came to £278 - an increase of more than three times the amount of her husband's inventory. It made an unusual record by any standards - and, for a widow, perhaps a unique one.
Margaret died August 28, 1684. On September 30, 1684, her son Samuel, of Springfield, presented her last will and inventory of her estate to the Hampshire County Court. Her will read as follows:
At the Countie Corte in Springfield Sept: 30: 1684

||A strange aside:|
This Martin surname was introduced by Carl Conrad MARTIN - presumably it was to get out of some trouble. Before that he was Carl Conrad Finley. After Elisabeth "Betty" caught him during an act of infidelity he was kicked out. He later remarried changed his name back to Finley and fathered Cecilia and William.

George Harmon Peabody worked for Sargent, Harding Co., NYC, when he wrote to his uncle George (March 21, 1853): “I write for us all; it was the wish of our kind mother, deceased, that I would write this at some future time. We are obliged to you for assisting in educating us, in paving the way for us. I thank you for the kindness you are now exhibiting towards my sisters and Aunt Russell [GP's younger sister Judith Dodge (née Peabody) Russell Daniels, 1799-1879] for her untiring willingness in attending to their many wants.” Ref.: George Harmon Peabody, NYC, to GP, March 21, 1853, Peabody Papers, PEM, Salem, Mass.
