Robert D. Stuart Jr., former CEO of Quaker Oats and son of the company's co-founder, has died at the age of 98
During his tenure at Quaker Oats, Stuart oversaw popular innovations like instant oatmeal and chewy oatmeal bars.
Robert D. Stuart Jr., son of the Quaker Oats co-founder Robert Douglas Stuart, and himself the former chief executive officer of Quaker Oats from 1966 to 1981, died on May 8th at the age of 98.
Stuart joined the company after law school and remained there for 38 years.
During that time, the company introduced many of its still-popular innovations including instant oatmeal and chewy granola bars.
In 1969, under Stuart's guidance, the company also acquired toy manufacturer Fisher-Price.
In 1940, several years before he joined the family business, Stuart and a group of fellow Yale law students founded the America First Committee, which vehemently opposed America’s involvement in World War II. The antiwar group grew to more than 800,000 members, including Gerald R. Ford and Charles Lindbergh.
Following the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, the committee disbanded and Stuart enlisted in the army, serving in Europe and eventually achieving the rank of major.
After his long tenure with Quaker Oats, President Ronald Reagan appointed Stuart the ambassador of Norway, a title he held until 1989.

Quaker Oats ex-chief takes control at 3M
The 62-year-old Morrison, a member of the 3M board, was named to temporarily replace James McNerney Jr., who Thursday was named chairman and CEO of Chicago-based Boeing Co.
Morrison joined Quaker in 1997 after three years in the top job at Kraft Foods Co. Former Quaker shareholders credit Morrison with leading a turnaround of the company that resulted in its sale to PepsiCo Inc. in 2000 for a 120 percent premium.
Still, he has not been engaged in the day-to-day operations of a company since stepping down from PepsiCo in 2003.
Morrison, who said a search team has been formed to consider "inside and outside" candidates, sought to reassure Wall Street that 3M would continue outperforming market expectations.
He said he was "confident that the right team and the right plans are in place to realize our potential."
Still, shares of 3M fell nearly 5 percent, or $3.74, to $72.30, on the New York Stock Exchange after the announcement of McNerney's departure.
Morrison also is a member of the boards of Aon Corp., Illinois Tool Works Inc. and Tribune Co., which owns the Chicago Tribune.
Little Known Black History Fact: The History of Aunt Jemima
In 1890, a former slave named Nancy Green was hired to be the spokesperson for Aunt Jemima brand food products.
Nancy Green was born into slavery in 1834 in Montgomery County, Kentucky. In 1889 the creators of Aunt Jemima, Charles Rutt and Charles Underwood, sold the company to R.T Davis, who soon found Nancy Green in Chicago. The previous owners had already agreed upon her ‘look’ of a bandana and apron. Davis combined the Aunt Jemima look with a catchy tune from the Vaudeville circuit to make the Aunt Jemima brand.
Green’s identity was first uncovered at the Worlds’ Columbian Exposition in 1893. There were so many people interested in the Aunt Jemima exhibit, police were called for crowd control. Green served pancakes to thousands of people. People loved her warm personality and friendly demeanor, not to mention her cooking. Green was given an award for showmanship at the exposition.
As a result of her dedication, Aunt Jemima received 50,000 orders for pancake mix. Not only did flour sales soar, but Green received a lifetime contract to serve as spokesperson. She was a living legend of the brand until she died in a car accident in September 1923.
After Green’s passing, the owner of Aunt Jemima, R.T. Davis, experienced financial issues and the brand was sold to Quaker Oats two years later.
As for the image of Aunt Jemima, Nancy Green was followed by Anna Robinson, whose image was changed to a painted portrait on the packaging of the mix. Next was Chicago blues singer and actress Edith Wilson. She was the first Aunt Jemima to appear in television commercials.
After Wilson there was Ethel Ernestine Harper, a former school teacher and actress. The fourth Aunt Jemima was Rosie Hall who was an advertising employee at Quaker Oats until she discovered their need for a new Aunt Jemima. After she died, Hall’s grave was declared a historical landmark.
Next, there was Aylene Lewis. She made her first appearance of Aunt Jemima in 1955 at the Aunt Jemima restaurant at Disneyland. The last woman known to appear as Aunt Jemima publicly was Ann Short Harrington. Harrington would make television appearances as the brand spokesperson in the New York area.
3M Board Gets Stuck Over CEO's Contract
Here's an urgent Post-it note for 3M Co. : Decide who's in charge.
Directors of the conglomerate have failed to agree on a succession plan, even though the contract of Chairman and Chief Executive George Buckley is due to expire in a month when he turns 65, the typical retirement age for top executives at the sticky-notes manufacturer. Some directors want to extend Mr. Buckley's contract, while others don't, a person familiar with the situation said.
Mr. Buckley doesn't want to leave because "he loves his job,'' the person said.
Lead independent director Vance D. Coffman and Edward M. Liddy, a former Allstate Corp. CEO, are among the board members who prefer to extend Mr. Buckley's contract, perhaps for a year, the person said.
But several directors—led by Robert S. Morrison, a former Quaker Oats Co. CEO—favor promoting Chief Operating Officer Inge Thulin to CEO for fear he will jump ship if Mr. Buckley's contract is renewed, according to the person.

Tribune investor could be pivotal
John W. Rogers Jr., the founder, chairman and chief investment officer of mutual fund company Ariel Capital Management, is an avowed admirer of investing superstar Warren E. Buffett, who once described his average holding period for a stock as “forever.”
Patience is the prime virtue at Ariel, whose company slogan is “slow and steady” and whose “deep-value” investing style involves seeking out-of-favor companies in out-of-favor industries, buying stock at a bargain price and holding on until the rest of the market figures it out. Rogers, 48, had patience drilled into him on the basketball court, as team captain at Princeton University under legendary coach Pete Carril, who took a highly disciplined, grind-it-out approach to the game.
“It is uncanny how his investing style mirrored Pete Carril’s offense,” said Alexander Wolff, a writer at Sports Illustrated who was a year ahead of Rogers at Princeton. He recalled that Rogers “had a campus-wide rep as a precocious stock picker” even then.
But patience has its limits, and Ariel’s patience has been tested by one of its largest holdings, Tribune Co., parent of the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers broadcast properties including KTLA-TV Channel 5 and the Chicago Cubs baseball franchise.
Tribune’s stock has lost nearly half its value since the 2000 acquisition of The Times’ former parent, Times Mirror Co. The anemic performance has helped drag down Ariel’s recent results, in turn causing some big Ariel investors to pull their money out. As of last week, the flagship Ariel Fund ranked 308th out of 321 funds in its peer group, with a one-year total return of 10.3%, as compared with a peer average of 17.03%, according to fund tracker Lipper Inc.
Although Tribune is by no means the worst laggard in his portfolio, Rogers may be in a unique position to do something about that investment.
Rogers’ office on the 29th floor of the lakefront Aon Center here is a five-minute walk from Tribune’s headquarters in the iconic Tribune Tower downtown. In his business and civic roles, the lifelong Chicagoan has ties with Tribune management and its board. Ariel also has more than a casual connection to David Geffen, one of three Los Angeles billionaires who has voiced an interest in buying The Times.
In a recent interview, Rogers acknowledged that he has been working behind the scenes to keep information flowing.
Tribune is under intense pressure to boost its stock price -- the same kind of pressure experienced by Knight Ridder Inc., which was the nation’s second-largest newspaper chain before it was sold and broken up this year. Shareholder discontent at Tribune burst into public view in June when the Chandler family of Los Angeles, which controls a nearly 20% stake and three of 11 seats on its board, chastised management for a “failed strategy” and called for aggressive action, including putting the company up for sale.
Tribune Chairman and Chief Executive Dennis J. FitzSimons and the board have since taken some conciliatory steps, including restructuring two Tribune-Chandler partnerships last month in a way that removed them as an impediment to more radical moves, such as a spinoff of the company’s 25 TV stations or the sale of The Times, the Cubs or other properties. The board also named a special committee of seven independent directors -- excluding FitzSimons and the three Chandler representatives -- to oversee management’s campaign to pump more life into the stock.
FitzSimons, however, has said he wants to devise strategies for the whole company before considering sales of individual assets, specifically The Times. People who know the members of the management team believe that they would be loath to part with The Times, the Cubs or cable TV network Superstation WGN. The Chandlers have said little since their public outburst in June, but a minimalist, stay-the-course approach probably wouldn’t satisfy them.
If Tribune’s destiny came down to a proxy vote, FitzSimons could count on the management-controlled McCormick Tribune Foundation, which owns about 11% of the company’s stock, the second-biggest stake after the Chandlers’.
But other big shareholders haven’t shown their hands, including Rogers, a talented card player who has competed in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
Ariel holds 14.9 million shares, or 6%, of Tribune stock, just behind Baltimore-based T. Rowe Price (15.6 million shares) as the company’s biggest institutional owner. But where Tribune is concerned, Ariel is better connected.
For example, Ariel does its banking with Northern Trust Corp., whose chairman, William A. Osborn, heads the Tribune board’s special committee. Both Osborn and Rogers are active in the Chicago Urban League and in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, of which Osborn is chairman and Rogers a life trustee.
As a director of McDonald’s Corp., Rogers serves with Enrique Hernandez Jr., chairman of Pasadena-based Inter-Con Security Systems Inc. and another member of the Tribune committee. A third committee member, former Quaker Oats Co. CEO Robert S. Morrison, sits with Rogers on the board of insurance giant Aon Corp.
Ariel’s connections don’t stop at the Tribune boardroom. Rogers’ protegee and a fellow Princeton alum, Ariel President Mellody L. Hobson, 37, is a director of DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., along with Geffen, the studio’s co-founder. When Hobson visits Los Angeles, she sometimes stays at Geffen’s house.
Rogers called Hobson’s ties with Geffen “an interesting coincidence” but cautioned against reading too much into it.
“As a major shareholder in a company like Tribune, we get calls from private equity firms and wealthy individuals,” Rogers said. “It’s part of our job to engage in conversations.”
Although he shrugged off the notion that Ariel has been a conduit between Geffen or other interested parties and Tribune, Rogers said: “As we gain insight and information as to how people view the company, it’s important to bring those questions up” to management. “We might say, ‘Have you thought of this? Have you thought of that? Here’s what one person thinks such-and-such an asset is worth.’ ”
In its public statements to date, Ariel has sounded a pro-management theme.
Ariel Vice Chairman Charles K. Bobrinskoy, 47, who was a longtime investment banker at Salomon Bros. before joining Ariel, issued an approving statement last month when the board revamped the Chandler partnerships and created the special committee: “Ariel has continuously expressed confidence that the strong board and management of Tribune would take steps to realize the intrinsic value of the company.”
Bobrinskoy, who grew up with Rogers in the city’s Hyde Park section and worked with him as a peanut vendor at White Sox games, said several months ago that Tribune could be worth as much as $46 a share. The company’s shares closed Friday at $32.31, down 60 cents.
Today, with Tribune potentially facing an auction, Ariel has backed away from naming a target price. Rogers said only that the stock “is selling at a significant discount.”
Though he has been circumspect about prescribing how to achieve maximum value, Rogers departs from FitzSimons by focusing on the assets that could be sold individually.
“Look at Food Network and CareerBuilder and the Cubs,” he said. “There’s a robust interest in individual entities.”
CareerBuilder.com, 42.5% owned by Tribune, has emerged as the leading Internet job-search site and the most coveted of the company’s digital properties. The Cubs, though barely profitable and lackluster on the field, could command $500 million in a sale, some analysts estimate.
The Cubs and The Times exemplify “trophy properties” that might attract community-spirited or ego-driven buyers who would pay more than what the usual cash-flow analysis might imply.
“Tribune has more trophies than most companies,” Rogers said.
Ariel has seldom turned confrontational with its portfolio companies. It was more in character for Rogers to declare himself “extremely disappointed” last August when Career Education Corp., one of Ariel’s worst-performing stocks and the subject of a federal investigation, came out with subpar quarterly earnings that again bashed it on Wall Street.
“One of the things we discuss with our own board is how activist to be,” Rogers said. Because of Ariel’s “very constructive, positive dialogue” with FitzSimons and his management team, he has not felt “any inclination to be negative.”
“I don’t think he’s there to rock the boat or upset management,” Jeff Tjornehoj, a senior research analyst at Lipper, said of Rogers. “If he thought they were heading in a really wrong direction, he’d just get out.”
Former Quaker Oats Chairman Gets More Responsibility in Pepsi Shuffle
PepsiCo Inc. said it is reorganizing some business units to integrate Quaker Oats Co., in a structure that expands the role of the chairman of the recently acquired food and beverage maker.
Robert Morrison, Quaker's chairman, chief executive and president, will assume oversight of PepsiCo's Tropicana juice unit while remaining in Chicago and continuing to oversee most of Quaker's businesses in North America. Production of other PepsiCo juice and juice-based products, such as its Dole and SoBe lines, will be consolidated and put under his watch.
Oversight of Quaker's international businesses will be transferred to other PepsiCo units, while Quaker snacks, such as grain and cereal bars, will become part of a new convenience-food unit within PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North American division.
The reorganization at the Purchase, N.Y., food and beverage company suggests that Mr. Morrison, who is now also a PepsiCo vice chairman, will play an even more active role in running the newly expanded company than had been expected. Credited with engineering a major turnaround of Quaker Oats, Mr. Morrison, 59 years old, had pledged when the deal with PepsiCo was announced in December to remain with the combined company, retaining responsibility for the Quaker businesses for 18 months.
But spokesmen for both PepsiCo and Quaker said his added responsibilities fit with PepsiCo's original plans to integrate businesses with similar production and distribution. Combining Tropicana with the Quaker businesses will allow PepsiCo to maximize efficiency by forming one sales organization for those units and using Quaker's extensive distribution system to more quickly expand availability of Tropicana products, they said.
The Kellogg's granola with apricot and pumpkin seeds was apparently found to have the equivalent of 499.9 ppb – 312.4 per cent higher than the EWG's benchmark.
Quaker's microwaveable oats had 464.23 ppb – 290.1 per cent higher, and Weetabix's Oatibix contained 318.85 ppb – 199.2 per cent higher.
THE GLYPHOSATE SAFETY SAGA
Glyphosate is a herbicide used to kill weeds which was first registered for use in the US in 1974.
It is marketed either as a salt or an amber-colored liquid with no smell.
Monsanto markets glyphosate as part of the pesticide Roundup.
Several studies found that high doses administered to laboratory animals caused cancer, although the evidence is 'limited' when it comes to humans.
In March 2015, the World Health Organizatrion ranked glyphosate a Group 2a carcinogen, a substance that probably causes cancer in people.
In 2017, California added glyphosate to its proposition 65 list, which requires Roundup to carry a warning label if sold in California.
Monsanto has vehemently denied that its product causes cancer and says and more than 800 studies that have established its safety.
Yet more than 4,000 plaintiffs have filed lawsuits - 800 over the past year - claiming Monsanto made them or members of their family sick.
In the testing, done by the Health Research Institute, glyphosate concentrations are measured in nanograms per gram, which are equal to parts per billion.
'I was extremely alarmed at the results and parents should be warned,' Dr Mason told campaign website Beyond GM.
Dr Mason worked for decades as an NHS anaesthetist and was assistant editor of the medical journal, Anaesthesia.
Dr Alexis Temkin, a toxicologist at the EWG who worked on the report, says finding the chemical in cereals is disconcerting.
'The report shows that breakfast cereals are not a place for pesticides linked to cancer,' Dr Temkin told Daily Mail Online.
'Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's safe or that it provides that extra level of protection for children.
'What we show here is that there are detectable levels in common foods that children exposed to every day. Over a long period of time, that can be dangerous.'
The UK does not grow genetically modified crops to feed to humans, but the US does, and the practise has led to a rise in the use of glyphosate.
The chemical is, however, sprayed on picked crops around the world to help dry them out, and is used as a weedkiller by landscapers.
Gardener Dewayne Johnson, 46, from California, successfully sued Monsanto, which makes weedkiller Roundup for $78million (£60m) after claiming their product gave him terminal cancer.
A jury decided it was the glyphosate in the weedkiller which had left him with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Weetabix declined to comment – Kellogg's and Quaker did not respond to requests.
The intimidating St. Louis Cardinals ace struck out 3,117 hitters during his Hall of Fame career, currently putting him at 14th all-time. He was nearly unbeatable in the postseason, leading the Cardinals to two World Series titles in the 1960s.
The rock ‘n’ roll star offered up joyful solos that defined the best-known songs of his band, Van Halen. Rolling Stone magazine put him at No. 8 on its 2015 list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists. He died of cancer.
The South Dakota native represented Oregon’s 4th Congressional District in the 1970s and ’80s. He advocated for environmental protections for wildlife in the Pacific Northwest.
The pitcher starred for the New York Yankees during a period of dominance for the franchise he was a member of six World Series championship teams. He won the Cy Young Award in 1961.
The second baseman twice won the National League Most Valuable Player Award. Morgan helped lead the Cincinnati Reds to back-to-back World Series titles in 1975-76.
The actress appeared in classic 1940s and ’50s movies, including “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.” She made four movies with future U.S. president Ronald Reagan.
Known as “The Amazing Randi,” the illusionist and MacArthur “genius” grant recipient became a determined foe of paranormal quackery. He appeared on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show” many times and wrote the 1980 book “Flim Flam! The Truth About Unicorns, Parapsychology and Other Delusions.”
The singer-songwriter was born in New York but became identified with the Texas outlaw movement in country music. He wrote the song “Mr. Bojangles,” made popular by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sammy Davis Jr. and Bob Dylan.
The Emmy-winning dancer and choreographer served as a movement model for Snow White for the Disney animated classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” She and her husband Gower Champion became the foremost dance team of the Golden Age of Television.
Dr. Leonard Laster Oregonian
The former U.S. assistant surgeon general led Oregon Health & Science University during an important period of growth in the late 1970s and early ’80s. He later served as chancellor of the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
An active player in the 1950s Beat movement in Greenwich Village, the Brooklyn native’s erotic autobiographical novel “Memoirs of a Beatnik” became an underground classic. Di Prima went on to become San Francisco’s poet laureate.
The Texas musician wrote hit songs for Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson. He had a small acting role in Robert Duvall’s 1997 movie “The Apostle.”
Matthew Choi, right, and his mother
The University of Oregon graduate and his mother operated the award-winning Choi’s Kimchi, which became popular at Portland Farmers Market before going national. He was fatally stabbed by an intruder in his Southeast Portland apartment.
Sean Connery and Michael Caine in "The Man Who Would Be King."
The Scottish actor originated the role of James Bond, playing Ian Fleming’s suave secret agent in seven movies. He branched out in the 1970s with ambitious films like “The Man Who Would Be King.” Sir Sean won a best supporting actor Oscar for his performance in 1987′s “The Untouchables.”
The feminist sex educator taught women the art of self-pleasure and hosted consciousness-raising groups at the height of the women’s-liberation movement of the 1970s. She coined the mantra: “Better orgasms, better world.”
