Mistaken for Squirrel

The Washington Times, Washington DC, September 16, 1922

Raymond Clapsaddle’s red hair caused him to be mistaken for a squirrel by Fred Painter while both were hunting near here.

Clapsaddle had lain down behind a log and only his head was visible to Painter. After extracting the shot from his face, neck and shoulders, surgeons at the hospital here said they believe he will recover.

Occidental Hotel and Restaurant (next to the Willard Hotel) on 1413 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC. Ca. 1910-20.

The Occidental Hotel is an example of the architectural eclecticism that prevailed at the turn of the century as designers sought to reconcile advances in high rise technology with stylistic tradition. Its distinctive mansard roof echoing the adjacent Willard hotel; ornate balconies, and elaborate rustication combine with the more modern window treatment in the articulated facade, which is well scaled to its setting.

In 1906, Gustav Buchholz, originally a Willard Hotel employe, opened the restaurant in the Occidental Hotel, which was founded by Henry Willard, the Willard’s original owner. Buchholz’s son Frederick inherited the restaurant in the 1920s. Old employes ran it from the ‘30s until 1952 when the Price family, New York restaurateurs, bought it.
