University pressure on land owners...Actually, Scatter was angry at the campus for years because as owner of the Pierce Ranch she'd wanted to develop a parcel of that land and the campus blocked her goals by influencing city/county government. Many years later, the University purchased the Russell Ranch and the chancellor at the time tried to talk Tawny and Scatter into letting the campus acquire their land as well. While the Russell Ranch owners were delighted to have the university, rather than developers, get their property, the Glides had no inheritors to satisfy and had no intention of leaving their land to the campus. --["Users/LindaHughes"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Glide Ranchhttp://daviswiki.org/Glide_Ranch2010-09-21 16:20:12LindaHughesComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Glide Ranch<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 54: </td> <td> Line 54: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-09-21 16:20:12'' [[nbsp]] Tawny told me that their original wealth came from a lucky purchase of Kettleman Hill land for 25 cents an acre. That became a huge oil producing area and made the Glides very wealthy. According to Tawny either his father or grandfather, I don't recall which, was on a train trip that passed through the Kettleman Hill area. His co-traveler (who I think owned the land) said he'd sell the land for the price noted and Mr. Glide bought it then and there. The only think I ever heard Tawny say about the RR is that he didn't like the fact that land they owned (below what is now the "causeway" between Davis and Sacramento) was condemned for use as a railroad and that the land taken up included much more than the RR needed to operate. He didn't like the idea that anyones land could be condemned for "public purposes." If he wanted to donate, that was a different matter. Scatter was in full agreement and perhaps had stronger feelings about it. The Vic Fazio bird refuge below the causeway came from Glide ranch land though both Scatter and Tawny were strong Republicans. To me its interesting because it fit with some of their conservation interests but they didn't like to be told that they had to "sell" their land for any reason.

There was never a sister who lived there. Scatter's sisters all resided at their "home ranch" in Minden, NV. The picture of the house above is the back of the "glide home ranch" and was drawn after their deaths in July of 1995, since the back of the house had been altered to remove the "bird porch". The limosine belonged to Mr. Glide's father and he personally never used it. It was stored in the barn until it was sold after his death. His car was a 1950 black cadillac that also was stored there and sold after his death. Mr. Glide inherited the ranch from his father. He purchased the Pierce ranch (for the Mrs.) and the Russell ranch directly to the west of the home ranch. The rumor of seven fully stocked and wardrobed ranches is not true, Scatter kept her home ranch in Minden, NV stocked and visited often. The Glide's always believed in preserving ranch land and animal husbandry. They had no heirs and left their estate to provide for preservation of land and animals. Mr. Glide had one sister who has since passed away; Scatter's sister's preceded her in death. I worked for the Glide's for many years and found their love of the land and animals a very heartfelt and wonderful thing. --["Users/Goose"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Glide Ranchhttp://daviswiki.org/Glide_Ranch2007-06-14 21:52:13JoRoI see this house everyday - it's for real, don't worry. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Glide Ranch<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 46: </td> <td> Line 46: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + * Hi Ernie.

Or maybe it is the house at the bend in the road from Winters to Putah Creek. I new Joe and Marnell Glide quite well. He was very reserved and she was a real character.
