Mace, Isabel
Isabel Mace - Glenwood Post Independent - February 5, 2006 - Glenwood Springs, CO - At 10 a.m. on Jan. 30, 2006, in her 87th year, Isabel Mace, the silent giant of Toklat, died. This is her story. Isabel Mace's roots are generations deep in the southern Indiana community of Corydon, where she was born Isabel Pfrimmer Hays on Sept. 13, 1918. She enjoyed a well-grounded childhood of opportunity. Her father was an attorney and a dairy farmer who nightly read to her books of great literature. Her mother was a college-educated homemaker, a music teacher and a very early advocate of healthy living via natural, organic foods. Isabel followed her older brother, Clay Blaine Hays Jr. to Grinnell (he then went on to the University of Indiana for a law degree so he could join the family practice). Her younger brother, Samuel Pfrimmer Hays, graduated from Swarthmore with a B.A. in psychology and continued on to Harvard for a Ph.D. in history. Sam was the chairman of the department of history at the University of Pittsburgh from 1960-73. Family histories, legacies and connections were a significant part of Isabel's life. Isabel received the Golden Eaglet Award, the highest honor from the Girl Scouts of America, in 1937 for her outstanding efforts in community service and personal achievement. She earned her bachelor's degree in sociology from Grinnell College, Grinnell, Iowa, in 1941. At Grinnell, Isabel met her husband of 52 years, Stuart Aitken Mace, a native of Denver. They were married in 1941, shortly after their graduation and just weeks before Stuart's draft orders were issued. Isabel later reflected that she simply let fate take her by the hand. After the war they settled for a very short time in Boulder so that Stuart could resume his studies in plant genetics. Instead, with their growing family, they came to the Aspen community in January 1948 at the invitation of Aspen revivalists Walter and Elizabeth Paepcke. The Maces personified a self-reliant, post World War II generation that renounced the then contemporary American dream for simply life in a sleepy place. Along with her late husband, Isabel pioneered modern day Ashcroft, eventually bringing snow plows, telephone service, school buses and electricity. In a rare moment of regret, Isabel later proclaimed that "bringing the power line up this valley was the worse thing we ever did." They settled in the Castle Creek Valley among the weathered remains of the silver-mining ghost town of Ashcroft, 9,500 feet in elevation and 11 miles south of Aspen. Ashcroft was a six-mile dog-sled trip to the nearest pavement when the Maces built their home and business, named Toklat, there in 1948. Toklat evolved to become ground zero for community sentiment, among the most original and most enduring businesses of the ski era Aspen. The Maces' operations at Toklat were continually shaped to suit the changing times and their changing needs. In 1949, they established Toklat Husky Kennel and Toklat Wilderness Lodge, offering day-long and overnight dog-sledding trips into backcountry huts and accommodating up to 16 guests in their small lodge/home, also a licensed restaurant. In the mid-1950s the Toklat huskies became famous, capturing the imagination of a generation, when they starred on the popular show "Sergeant Preston of the Yukon.”The Maces' independent way of life demanded a union of strong interdependence. Isabel offered the stern backbone of Toklat, holding it all together with a quiet efficiency. On any given day, it was not unusual for her to care for and feed five children, a small staff, a household of guests, a hundred huskies and a Hollywood film crew. A simple and resourceful woman, she ground her grains, "darned on darns" as June Kirkwood said, and learned to orchestrate a month's worth of meals on a shoestring without duplicating a menu. Few women of her day worked harder than Isabel Mace. Beginning in the early 1960s, first in Aspen and later in Ashcroft, the Maces opened a series of distinctive restaurants incorporating Isabel's wisdom of natural foods and Stuart's flare for unique flavors. The roast goose is remembered by legions. By definition, the Toklat meal was the antithesis of fast food. The Toklat restaurants were easily among the first to intentionally promote and offer organically grown foods. Isabel was a passionate teacher of her kitchen craft. A second-generation advocate, she endlessly practiced and preached her support of and belief in natural, organically grown foods. Serving food with a conscience, Isabel searched far and wide to obtain suitable ingredients, and in the process she loosely organized an early natural food cooperative involving family, friends and source suppliers. Isabel published a cookbook, "Recipe Requests from the Mace Kitchens," in 1994 and republished it in 1999. A family business, Toklat succeeded through ingenuity and effort. Over several decades, Isabel coordinated a cherished mail-order business offering among other things sourdough starter, exotic tea blends, baked grains and jams and jellies homemade from berries hand gathered in the area by family and staff. The Maces also collected and sold fine handmade crafts, many made by Stuart himself, or of other indigenous origin. Toklat's endlessly creative offerings evolved in the late 1970s into Toklat Gallery, a Mace business that continues today in Basalt. Between the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, Isabel contributed to the various efforts of the Malachite Small School and Farm in Gardner, an organization founded by the Mace family to promote sustainable agriculture methods. Isabel stood for all efforts to preserve and protect the special place in which she lived, as well as all wild places beyond. Additionally, she supported the movement toward establishing the Ashcroft ghost town as a national historic site. Less is still more. Small is still beautiful. Hers was a way of life, passionate with purpose, difficult by design and proud on principle. She will be remembered as a woman who worked tirelessly for her family, her home, her community and a better world with much contemplation and without complaint. Isabel Mace left her mark. She was a selfless and humble woman of strong conviction who never put herself forward for vanity or for praise. For much of her life, she worked quietly in the shadows of her legendary husband; however, she will be remembered as the giant upon whose shoulders he stood. Together they raised five fiercely independent children in rustic simplicity, and together they made an immeasurable impression on the community of Aspen and on the tens of thousands who joined them for a meal at their hanging tables. Isabel died on a beautiful snowy morning from a life lived long and well. To the end she continued to floss though she knew her time was limited, she cleared her plate until the very end, and she never forgot the purpose of food - to nourish the body, mind and soul. Stuart died in 1993. Their eldest son died in a mountain climbing accident in 1986. She is survived by her brother Sam, three sons, a daughter and six grandchildren. At Isabel's specific request there will be no memorial service. She will be cremated and her ashes will be spread by her children and grandchildren. Over the past several years, Isabel spent a great deal of time sharing stories about the extraordinary life of the Maces in the Castle Creek Valley. These stories will soon become a book. The desire to preserve history runs deep in Isabel's family. To assure that this type of tradition is continued and that other stories will also be preserved and published for future generations to share, please make a donation to the Isabel Mace Oral History Project at the Aspen Historical Society, 620 W. Bleeker, Aspen, CO 81611.

Mace, Stuart
Stewart Mace - Rocky Mountain News - August 07, 1993 - Aspen dog-sled operator Stuart Mace, who established a dog-sled operation in Aspen in 1948 and saw his dogs featured on the old television series Sergeant Preston of the Yukon, has died of cancer at age 74. Mr. Mace and his wife, Isabel, established the Toklat Lodge at nearby Ashcroft. His sled-dog operation, which numbered as many as 60 huskies at a time, was famous worldwide. The dogs' baying, or "singing," was recorded by CBS records and an Italian record company. French composer Darius Milhaud wrote a composition based on the musical tones he heard when Mace's dog "choir" performed. In addition to the Sergeant Preston series, his dogs appeared in the 3-D movie Those Sisters from Seattle, a musical about the rigors of life in the Yukon. Mace objected to the Hollywood sled dog term "mush." "You can get them started any way you want, but don't yell `mush,' " Mace said. "The dogs need sharp, crisp words to command their attention." A lifelong environmentalist, Mr. Mace was one of the founders of the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies. He also was a nature artist. In the 1970s, Mr. Mace, a native of Denver, and his family launched the Malachite Family Farm in Huerfano County. It acquired school status in 1983. Mr. Mace earned a degree in plant pathology at Grinnell College. He married Isabel in 1941. During World War II, Mr. Mace was assigned to the 10th Mountain Division and lived at Salida while Camp Hale was being built near Leadville. He volunteered for the dog-sled detachment and trained dog-sled teams for the planned invasion of Norway. After the war, he bought the puppies of the sled-dog unit and started his operation in Aspen. Mr. Mace is survived by four of his five sons, Lynn, Alan, Kent and Bruce. His son Greg was killed in a 1986 fall in the Maroon Bells in a mountain rescue accident. Memorial services were to be announced.

Madrid, Jose Miguel
Jose Miguel Madrid - The Chronicle-News - September 27, 1944 - Jose Miguel Madrid, one of the most highly esteemed and widely known pioneer citizens of Las Animas county and southern Colorado, former state senator and county superintendent of schools, prominent Catholic layman, passed away at 10:45 last night at his home 316 East Sixth Street, after a prolonged illness. He was 81 years old and a resident of this community most of his life. Honored as one of the most distinguished of pioneer citizens, a leader in educational activities, a public official and state legislator at periods of his life, Mr. Madrid was an acknowledged leader among Spanish-American people, and recognized as an authority on early day history of Trinidad and community. Long active as a Republican, Mr. Madrid had served four terms or eight years as county superintendent of schools, and twice had served in the state legislature, the first time in the lower house prior to 1904, the second time when he was elected state senator from Las Animas County in 1932, serving four years. As a small boy he had experienced excitement of long overland treks with freighters over the old Santa Fe Trail thru Willow Springs, N.M., to Puerto De Luna or Las Vegas, and thru the "Uncle Dick" Wooton tollgate to Trinidad and El Moro. As a youth he had learned the business of overland freighting and had met many of the best known of the early pioneer folk. His funeral will take place Friday morning at 9 o'clock from the Mullare Funeral Home followed at 9:30 by solemn Requiem High Mass at Holy Trinity Catholic church, and with burial in the family lot in the Catholic cemetery. Thursday evening at the drawing room at 7:30 there will be rosary by Knights of Columbus, at 8 o'clock by the Sagrada Corazon de Jesus, and at 8:30 by the Holy Trinity altar society, the Sagrada Familia and public. Mora County to what is now Madrid Plaza up the river, west of Trinidad, the plaza having been named for the Madrid family.  There he had lived on the Madrid ranch place. He attended country schools, and in 1879 the family had returned to the former home in Mora County, N. M. remaining ten years and returning to Madrid Plaza in 1889. During the ten years the family made their home in Mora County, Mr. Madrid had taught school and been elected one term as county superintendent of Colfax County, New Mexico. In 1904 being active and prominent in the Republican party of this county, he was elected county superintendent of schools and was re-elected three times.  Upon retiring from this office he engaged in the real estate and insurance business which continued to be his business until ill health forced retirement.  Serving one term as state senator 1932-1936 he retired from political activity and public office. For nine years he had served as an interpreter in the district court, many years ago. He was active and prominent in the affairs of Holy Trinity Catholic church, being a charter member of Holy Trinity Council No. 1972, Knight of Columbus of which he had been Grand Knight and for some years Chancellor.  He had also served the state council Knight of Columbus as State Advocate and State Secretary.  He was also a fourth degree member. Distinguished by a high sense of honor, courteous, kindly, Senator Madrid held the respect and affectionate regard of people all over Las Animas County, and as a member of the state legislature he was greatly esteemed as a gentleman of refinement and high character.  Few citizens of this community were more generally respected than he. Mr. Madrid perhaps had a wider acquaintance among the elder pioneer folk than any other man in the community.  A few years back he was one of the eleven pioneer citizens who had been residing in Los Animas County more than 60 years.  Of this eleven possibly the only one surviving is Theodore Abeyta. Senator Madrid had been in steadily declining health for some time.  About the time he retired as state senator his voice failed him.  He became less active in fraternal affairs and publicly, but continued as a most devout churchgoer, and his counsel and advice were frequently sought on matters of community interest. His memory had remained keen for historical facts.  Oftentimes he could, without resorting to records give authentic and accurate data regarding persons and events of the early Trinidad and community.  Of his many activities during his more than 70 years of residence he had been most distinguished for his service and contribution to education.  He lived at peace and in harmony with all men, said no ill word, and was ever a sturdily patriotic, law abiding American citizen and Christian gentleman. Deceased is survived by his wife, Mrs. Inez Madrid, five daughters and two sons.  Daughters are Mrs. Sofia Salazar of San Luis, Colo.; Mrs. Esther Morris of Cheyenne, Wyo.; Mrs. Eva Christy of Benton City, Wash.; Mrs. Corinne Paul of Denver, and Miss Rebecca Madrid of Trinidad.  Sons are Manuel Madrid of Phoenix, Ariz., and Benjamin of San Francisco, Calif. Two half brothers are Nemecio Baros of Denver and J. P. Baros of Los Angeles. Seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren also survive.

Madrid, Randy
Randy Madrid - Pueblo Chieftain - August 02, 2000 - Randy Madrid, born Nov. 10, 1952, passed away July 31, 2000. Pueblo saw Randy into and out of this world. As a National Merit Scholarship finalist, he graduated Roncalli in 1970, attended Notre Dame on a scholastic scholarship, then went on to attend CSU. Following an accident in 1987, Randy was confined to a wheelchair and made his home at the Minnequa Medicenter. Filled with the laughter and energy of the children and the loyal daily visitations by the dogs living in the intergenerational facility, this home gave Randy a new lease on life. The generous gift of an electric wheelchair by special friend, Teri Waugh, accentuated this new life and allowed Randy to provide rides to his friends through the hallways of life at Minnequa Medicenter and beyond. He was preceded in death by his father, Joe A., and is survived by his mother, Tillie, of Santa Barbara, Calif.; a brother, Mark, and his wife, Kathy Abarr of Graeagle, Calif.; a sister, Nancy A. of Santa Barbara, Calif.; and a son, Charlie Madrid of Pueblo.

Madson, Carlyle C.
Carlyle C. Madson - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - November 3, 1961 - Four Die in Plane Crash Near Pueblo - Flying into a blinding snowstorm, four men crashed to their deaths in a light plane Thursday 17 miles southeast of Pueblo. The fast-moving storm cleared within a few hours to reveal the wreckage on the Butler Ranch. Another airman, Glenn L. Nash, spotted the shattered remains on a flight from Pueblo to Raton, N.M. Those killed were Carlyle C. Madson, 50, the pilot, and Henry J. Pannell, Jr., 30 both of San Diego, Calif.; Paul Miller, 38 (?), La Mesa, Calif., and Vernon L. Parrish, 32, Denver. Parrish headed an electronics firm with offices in Denver, Albuquerque and Salt Lake City. The others all were employes of a San Diego firm. First on the scene, according to Maj. Lawrence H. Reibscheid, information officer of Group III, Civil Air Patrol, were three CAP officers and two deputy sheriffs of Pueblo County. They arrived on the scene at about 4:30 p.m. The searchers were Lt. Col. W. A. Coe of Black Forest, deputy communications officer of the Colorado Wing CAP; 1st Lt. Joseph Girodano and 1st Lt. Elvina Smith of the Pueblo County (?) CAP, and deputy sheriffs Theodore Nickolett and M. C. Forester. The search was directed by Lt. Col. Herbert E. Hammond of Colorado Springs, commanding officer of Group III. Operations officer was Maj. Earl Cole of Manitou Springs, also of Group III. The wreckage was scattered over a quarter mile area of the flat prairie land north of the Huerfano River, Hammond said. The largest piece of wreckage could be put in the back of a pickup truck. One body was in the nose wreckage. Two others were 80 feet ahead of where the plane struck the ground. The fourth body was at the point of impact. Controllers at the Pueblo airport said the plane, bound from Denver to Albuquerque, N.M., radioed at 10:43 a.m. that it was returning to Pueblo after running into the blizzard. Efforts to communicate with the plane failed. Workmen on the Butler Ranch said they heard the roar of a plane, apparently at full throttle, about 10:45 a.m. but heard no crash. The plane did not burn. It dug a furrow about 8 inches deep before disintegrating. Sheriff officers said it appeared the plane struck in a pancake fashion. Reibscheid said that since Feb. 4 of this year, the CAP has participated in more than 25 search and rescue missions of this type.
