Living History notes 2017
Background:
...Jan nee Benningon VanBuren, FHS1958, has been working several years on a book regarding Susan Collins, an M.E. Church Missionary in Africa, http://www.iowaz.info/surname/collinssusan.htm   In May2017, Jan sent email requests to several 'high school' friends regarding living history observations to racists/discriminatory comments/incidents.   The responses were the same....no memories of comments, nor incidents.

....."I have some questions that require you perceptions/ observations about growing up in Fayette.  Were you aware of any discriminatory remarks made about blacks in the Fayette area and those attending our school as we were growing up (and later as well)?  If you heard comments what were they about and/or what was the tone of those comments?   What was the attitude about blacks attending Fayette churches?   If you don't remember any negative comments, but if you did they also would be useful to my project.  I don't remember hearing negative comments from my family members or the community, but you would have had a better pulse on those living in town.  I'm wondering if attitudes were different from those of those living in the country, where I saw farmers readily cooperating and working together."  Jan

Response and 'story' regarding Ralph Dixon (from Kip.Knight, FHS1959):
...Jan, I do not remember any racist/discriminatory comments, and certainly no incidents, during my 13 years (k - 12) attending the Fayette Consolidated Schools or during all that time growing up/working in Knights Hardware.   Undoubtedly, given the wide range of feelings in any community, there may have been some racial negativism, however, I did not personally observe it.  The Fayette & rural area seemed quite an accepting community.
...However, one very personal "back-in-the-day" race oriented conversation has always remained with me. 
.....Setting:  This conversation took place with Ralph Dixon (1911 - 1980) while he and I were sitting on the cement just outside the door of Buz Earle's Standard Station in Fayette one beautiful day around the summer of 1965  Ralph emphatically stated that he was a proud Negro, and in his own words, not an African-American or a Black.  This is about that conversation.
.....Background:  Ralph was an older gentleman (54), compared to me (24) at the time, who lived on a farm southeast of town (Sec 2, Smithfield.Twp, 3mi SE of Fayette).  I had known Ralph for the many years that he was in and out of our Knights Hardware in Fayette  http://www.iowaz.info/surname/knightfayette.htm  .  Ralph was easy to talk to, was very personable, and although he seemed more of a quiet type of person, he always had an interesting story to tell.  He and Dad were very friendly and every-once-in-a-while when we were on a Sunday drive or delivering something in the area and Ralph was out in the yard, we would stop briefly and say hello. 
.....After graduating from Upper Iowa University in 1962, I had headed to Oregon to teach and attend graduate school at the University of Oregon.  Each summer, I would spend some time back in Fayette.  It was during one of those summer visits (1965) that I spotted Ralph at the Standard Station and went over to talk.
.....The Issue:  Our conversation covered reminiscing his farm happenings, and my graduate school experiences.  Then he became quite serious and wanted to know
"What was going on with all you college students?"  This was during the era when there were varying levels of discourse and discomfort on university campuses regarding the use of the term Negro.   Ralph continued, "I spent my life working to make 'Negro' proud and respectable and now they are tearing it down and making it something bad.  They want to be called 'Africa-American' or 'Black'.  I am not an African-American or a Black, I am a Negro."  Ralph quite eloquently expressed his resentment in perceiving all that he had worked for being torn down by those who appeared to have little respect for what had been accomplished, and for potentially creating future divisions this new emphasis might produce. 
.....Ralph's Dixon's comments and perspective made quite an impression.  Keep in mind, this was back in the 1960s.
Ralph was a good man.  Obviously, I never forgot the conversation.
.....Another Observation:  Based upon experiences at various colleges and universities, large and small as well as local and international, there seems to be a critical number (percent) at which point an assimilated minority begins to dissimilate and become an separate identifiable group.  I first observed this at Upper Iowa University.  Having grown up 1/2 block from Upper Iowa (if you cut through our back yard), I spent many years on and around campus.  Add to this perspective living within the immediate neighborhood and the downtown observations, and this becomes a time study in slow motion.  When the (at that time Negros) African-Americans were arriving on campus, their numbers were very few.  These few seemed to assimilate within the university community with very little reaction or apprehension.  However, over the years as the numbers increased, identifiable subcultures were subsequently formed and the overall general population became somewhat less cohesive.  As noted, I have observed this in various other settings as well, including overseas.

Ralph Dixon was a well known and liked farmer on the home Dixon farm between the Fayette, Arlington, Wadena triangle.
Ralph was the 8th child of Beverly Wayne Dixson (1869/OH-1934/Fay.Co.IA) & Sarah Aquilla Wilson 1876/IL-1965/Fay.Co.IA).
