Ben Reddick was the publisher of several small California newspapers and a former Orange County supervisor. He was largely credited with coining the term "Okies" for a story he did on the immigration of Dust Bowl refugees into California in the 1930s. Reddick was named an "Honorary Okie" by the Oklahoma governor in 1968. He was a member of the Orange County Board of Supervisors in the 1950s, served on the state Water Quality Control Board, and worked for several newspapers, including the Los Angeles Examiner. He bought his first newspaper, the Newport Balboa Press, in 1944, which he developed into the Newport Harbor News Press. Reddick later published the San Fernando Valley Times and the Paso Robles Daily Press, which he owned until 1996. He died in 1997.; Barry Goldwater Jr. is a former member of the United States House of Representatives from California, serving from 1969-1983. A Republican, he is the son of Barry Goldwater, U.S. Senator from Arizona and Republican Party presidential nominee in 1964.
Photograph caption dated January 6, 1964 reads "Barry Goldwater Jr., right, views the headlines in Friday's Valley Times in which his father declared his candidacy for the Republican Party nomination for President. Young Goldwater, looking over the shoulder of Valley Times Publisher Ben Reddick, revealed that he will head his father's campaign in California."
