Connecticut Tabacco Grower, 69, Owned Light-Harness Racers
Hartford, Conn., Feb. 12 Associated Press
Ralph C. Lasbury Sr., South Windsor tobacco grower and packer, and owner of many light-harness racing horses, died yesterday in the Hartford Hospital. His age was 69.
Starting as a grower at at 14, while yet a schoolboy, Mr. Lasbury developed a 200 acre plantation, employed sixty field hands and had a payroll of 100 packers. In 1924 he entered the real estate business in Florida but five years later resumed tobacco growing on a 500 acre tract.
He was the owner of Earle Jr., familiarly known as the "War Horse", said to have been the most consistent horse ever to run on a track in this country. His time was 2:04 1/4.

Lasbury, Connecticut Valley head who wrought labor reform, dies
Ralph C. Lasbury Jr., one of the colorful figures in the history of tobacco-growing in the Connecticut River Valley, died March 18 at his winter home, Winter Park, Fla. Death came suddenly from a heart attack. He was 72. Under Lasbury's direction, the valley's growers of high-priced cigar-wrapper leaf drew national attention in the improvement of migrant farm workers' working and housing conditions. He was executive director of the Shade Tobacco Growers Agricultural Association in Connecticut and Massachusetts for 26 years, until retirement in 1968. At his retirement, the then- president of the association, Gerrit Krot. declared that no man in contemporary American agriculture contributed more to the industry's welfare. Such contributions were also referred to by Krot when Doris Rockwell, Lasbury's assistant, retired at the same time. He said she "also pioneered in capably administering the association's Youth Camp Program, the biggest farm youth employment program in the country, as well as our Farm Workers Hospital, the first and still the only establishment of its kind. " A tall, spare man, Lasbury was an outspoken individualist. He worked hard and played hard, taking pride in his ability to hunt ducks and coons, and to judge and ride horses. He was also proud of the fact that, to some extent, Indian blood flowed in his veins. Comparatively few knew that his middle name was Cherokee, his paternal grandmother being a member of that tribe. This in no way conflicted with the fact that one of the gifts of the American Indian to modern society was tobacco. Outside the door to his office stood a cigar-store Indian, and on the wall behind his desk hung a picture of one of his favorite horses. At a birthday party some time ago for a now-deceased grower named Thrall, Lasbury paid one of his highest tributes when declaring, "Oliver J. Thrall is the best coon-hunter in New England." Another hobby was collecting antique duck decoys, 200 of which Lasbury once owned. He helped popularize the Morgan horse and was the owner of the former national champion gelding, Windcrest Fireball. Lasbury was the first president of the Connecticut Morgan Horse Club. One of his first memories of the tobacco business occurred when, hardly old enough to walk, he was strapped to the buckboard of his father's wagon and rode while the older Lasbury inspected his 225 acres of broadleaf tobacco, grown for use as cigar binder

Lasbury finished his high school education in Winter Park, Fla., after his father sold his tobacco farm and moved south. While completing his education at Rollins College in Winter Park, he met his future wife, Cecilia Justice Chase. Mrs. Lasbury's family established Chase Groves, near Orlando, in which citrus business the fourth generation is still in active operation.

Ralph Lasbury returned to Connecticut and was appointed the first executive director of the Shade Tobacco Group in 1942 as a result of criticism aimed by the Connecticut State Department of Labor at the conditions surrounding employment of youth in tobacco fields and sheds. Children only eight years of age worked 9 1/2 hours a day, six days a week on some farms; there was criticism of housing, unsanitary living conditions, unsafe transportation, and lack of supervision in some cases.

Lasbury was called to his job as a result of his volunteer work with the Connecticut Defense Council at the outbreak of World War II, when he was assigned to take charge of farm labor. As his first job with the shade group, he drew up corrective regulations and obtained acceptance by the growers. The regulations were put in effect voluntarily in 1942, becoming the basis for Connecticut's pioneering Farm Labor Youth Law of 1947.

During the harvest season, 1968, Senator Harrison Williams of New Jersey. chairman of the Senate Migratory Labor Committee, inspected the shade growers' labor camp in Windsor, Conn.. with its modern housing, recreational and cafeteria facilities, representing a $2,000,000 investment. The association's operation was the "most enlightened" of any employer group in the nation he had visited, Senator Wiliams said. That year the shade growers employed a peak total of 20,000 farm hands with a $27 million payroll. Beginning with Lasbury's appointment and lasting until a few years after his retirement, growers operated a unique program, bringing West Indian residents annually for the season. They formed a core of experienced farm adults. Thousands annually were thus recruited, under a contract providing round trip air fare. Jamaicans were hired for many years, until enactment of alien work laws caused a switch to Puerto Ricans. Four years ago, after protracted labor troubles, the importation program was dropped, and domestic labor substituted.

A memorial service for Ralph Lasbury will be held May 19 at. 2:00 p.m. at the Congregational Church of South Windsor, Conn., in this the town where he lived most of his life
