Robert Blake (admiral)
General at Sea Robert Blake was one of the most important military commanders of the Commonwealth of England and one of the most famous English admirals of the 17th century, whose successes have "never been excelled, not by Nelson" according to one biographer. Blake is recognised as the chief founder of England's naval supremacy, a dominance subsequently inherited by the British Royal Navy into the early 20th century. Despite this, due to deliberate attempts to expunge the Parliamentarians from history following the Restoration, Blake's achievements tend not to receive the full recognition that they deserve; the Blake family had a seat for several generations at Tuxwell, in the parish of Bishops Lydeard, near Bridgwater, Somerset. The earliest member of the family located in records was Humphrey Blake, who lived in the reign of Henry VIII. Admiral Blake's grandfather named Robert, was the first of the family to strike out on his own from country life as a merchant, hoping to become rich from Spanish trade.
He served as chief magistrate of Bridgwater several times, in recognition of the esteem in which the townspeople held him. His son, succeeded him in business, in addition to his father's estates at Puriton, Catcote and Wollamington, came into the estate at Plansfield held by the family of his wife, Sara Williams, since the reign of Henry VII. Robert Blake was the first son of thirteen children born to Sara, he attended Bridgwater Grammar School for Boys went up to Wadham College, Oxford. He had hoped to follow an academic career, but failed to secure a fellowship to Merton College in consideration of his political and religious views, but because the warden of Merton, Sir Henry Savile, had'an eccentric distaste for men of low stature'. Blake, at five feet, six inches tall, thus failed to meet Savile's'standard of manly beauty'. After his departure from university in 1625, it is believed that Blake was engaged in trade, a Dutch writer subsequently claimed that he had lived for'five of six years' in Schiedam.
Having returned to Bridgwater because of the death of his mother in 1638, he decided to stand for election to Parliament. In 1640 Blake was elected as the Member of Parliament for Bridgwater in the Short Parliament; when the English Civil War broke out during the period of the Long Parliament, having failed to be re-elected, Blake began his military career on the side of the parliamentarians despite having no substantial experience of military or naval matters. He would return to recover from an injury sustained in the Battle of Portland. During that time he represented Bridgwater in the Barebone's Parliament of 1653 and First Protectorate Parliament of 1654 and Taunton in the Second Protectorate Parliament of 1656 before returning to sea. After joining the New Model Army as a captain in Alexander Popham's regiment, Blake distinguished himself at the Siege of Bristol and was promoted to lieutenant colonel. After his leading role in holding Lyme Regis in the Siege of Lyme Regis he was promoted to colonel.
He went on to hold the Parliamentary enclave of Taunton during the Siege of Taunton, which earned him national recognition and where he famously declared that he would eat three of his four pairs of boots before he would surrender. He subsequently succeeded in winning the Siege of Dunster. Blake was appointed general at sea in 1649. Although it is used, Blake's name was never prefixed by'admiral', a rank, not used in the Parliamentarian navy. In 1651 he led a force to remove the Royalist Sir John Grenville from the Scilly Isles, where he had been appointed Governor by Charles II after a local rebellion. Blake is referred to as the'Father of the Royal Navy'; as well as being responsible for building the largest navy the country had ever known, from a few tens of ships to well over a hundred, he was first to keep a fleet at sea over the winter. Blake produced the navy's first set of rules and regulations, The Laws of War and Ordinances of the Sea, the first version of which, containing 20 provisions, was passed by the House of Commons on 5 March 1649, with a printed version published in 1652 as The Laws of War and Ordinances of the Sea, listing 39 offences and their punishments — death.
The Instructions of the Admirals and generals of the Fleet for Councils of War, issued in 1653 by Blake, George Monck, John Disbrowe and William Penn instituted the first naval courts-martial in the English navy. Blake developed new techniques to conduct landings. Blake's Fighting Instructions, issued by the generals at sea on 29 March 1653, are the first known instructions to be written in any language to adopt the use of the single line ahead battle formation Blake was the first to successfully attack despite fire from shore forts. In 1656, the year before his death, Blake was appointed Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports. See English Civil WarOn 11 January 1649 Prince Rupert of the Rhine led eight undermanned ships to Kinsale in Ireland in an attempt to prevent the Parliamentarians taking Ireland from the Royalists. Blake blockaded Rupert's fleet in Kinsale from 22 May, allowing Oliver Cromwell to land at Dublin on 15 August. Blake was driven off by a storm in October and Rupert escape
Bob Blake (American football)
Robert Edwin Blake was an American football and baseball player for the Vanderbilt Commodores of Vanderbilt University. Every football season in which he played, Blake was a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship team and unanimously selected All-Southern, he was Rhodes Scholar. His three brothers, Dan and Frank played on those winning teams. Dan and Vaughn were captains of the 1906, 1907, 1908 Vanderbilt football teams respectively, he thus signed letters "Bob Blake, pater familias."Blake was general counsel for the International Shoe Company, married Dorothy Gaynor. Blake was president of the Missouri Constitutional Convention in 1944. Blake was born on January 31, 1885 in Cuero, Texas to Daniel Bigelow Blake, Sr. and Mary Clara Weldon. Dan, Sr. was a physician and once president of the Nashville Academy of Medicine. Bob Blake prepped at Bowen School. Blake was Vanderbilt University’s first athlete to earn 16 letters, participating in football, basketball and track.
He weighed 170 pounds. While a senior, Blake was honored as Bachelor of Ugliness. Blake was a prominent end for Dan McGugin's Vanderbilt Commodores football teams in 1903 and from 1905 to 1907, he was a punter and drop kicker. As a punter, one writer claimed others considered him "the best in the country." He was selected All-Southern unanimously each and every year he played, Vanderbilt won the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship in all of his years. In 1915, John Heisman called Blake one of the greatest players in Vanderbilt history, along with Ray Morrison and Owsley Manier. Grantland Rice once said about Bob Blake, “he was the only halfback who never lost a yard around right end.”A fellow student at Vanderbilt once said of Blake "He is an athlete and this has been one great factor in making him popular, but Bob Blake would have been a popular man if he had not been an athlete. In the third place he takes an active part in every phase of college life. In the fourth place he has maintained himself well in scholarship, while not a brilliant student, he has, in my opinion, made a record above that of the average student."
In the opinion of fellow Vanderbilt player Honus Craig, Blake was the South's greatest player. Blake was chosen for an all-time Vandy team in 1912, for an Associated Press Southeast Area All-Time football team 1869–1919 era. Both Blake and teammate John J. Tigert were Rhodes Scholars. Blake broke his wrist in the Sewanee–Vanderbilt game. Bob Blake resumed play on the 1905 team. Vanderbilt won a major intersectional contest in 1906 when it defeated Carlisle 4–0 via a single, 17-yard Blake drop kick, "the crowning feat of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association season." The score was 4 to 0, as field goals counted for 4 points. College Football Hall of Fame inductee Albert Exendine was playing for Carlisle. Frank Mount Pleasant missed four field goals, he made Walter Camp's All-America Honorable Mention in 1907, as well as the first team All-American selection of Michigan coach Fielding Yost. Blake threw the pass to Stein Stone on a trick double-pass play which set up the score to beat Sewanee in 1907 for the SIAA championship, cited by Grantland Rice as the greatest thrill he witnessed in his years of watching sports.
Blake missed. He assisted his brother Frank Blake in coaching at Gordon Institute in 1907. In 1910, Blake was awarded a law degree and returned to Vanderbilt for one season as an assistant football coach for Dan McGugin; the 1910 team shocked defending national champion Yale with a scoreless tie. He coached at Montgomery Bell Academy in 1912. After practicing law in Nashville from 1911 to 1919, he engaged in business in Saint Louis, Missouri, he was elected to the board of directors of the International Shoe company in 1921, directed the company since 1929. Blake was president of the Missouri Constitutional Convention and awarded the "Man of the Year" award for Saint Louis in 1944. Blake died in St. Louis in 1962. 1907 College Football All-America Team 1907 College Football All-Southern Team List of Vanderbilt University athletes

Herb Jeffries was an American actor of film and television and popular music and jazz singer-songwriter, known for his baritone voice. In the 1940s and 1950s Jeffries recorded for a number of labels, including RCA Victor, Coral, Bethlehem, Columbia and Trend, his album Jamaica, recorded by RKO, is a concept album of self-composed calypso songs. He starred in several low-budget "race" Western feature films aimed at black audiences, Harlem on the Prairie, Two-Gun Man from Harlem, Rhythm Rodeo, The Bronze Buckaroo and Harlem Rides the Range, he acted in several other films and television shows. During his acting career he was billed as Herbert Jeffrey. Jeffries was born Umberto Alexander Valentino in Detroit to a white Irish mother who ran a rooming house, his father, whom he never knew, was of mixed Sicilian, French and Moorish roots. He claimed that his paternal great-grandmother was an Ethiopian with the surname of Carey. Firm evidence of Jeffries's race and age is hard to come by, but census documents from 1920 described him as mulatto and listed his father as a black man named Howard Jeffrey.
Jeffries himself, late in life, said that Howard Jeffrey was his stepfather, his biological father was Domenico Balentino, a Sicilian who died in World War I. Jeffries once described himself in an interview as "three-eighths Negro", claiming pride in an African-American heritage during a period when many light-skinned black performers were attempting "to pass" as all-white in an effort to broaden their commercial appeal. In marked contrast, Jeffries used make-up to darken his skin in order to pursue a career in jazz and to be seen as employable by the leading all-black musical ensembles of the day. Much in his career, Jeffries identified as white for economic or personal reasons. Jet reported that Jeffries identified as White and stated his "real" name as "Herbert Jeffrey Ball" on an application in order to marry Tempest Storm in 1959. Jeffries told the reporter for Jet:... I'm not passing, I never have, I never will. For all these years I've been wavering about the color question on the blanks.
I decided to fill in the blank the way I look and feel. Look at my blue eyes, look at my brown hair, look at my color. What color do you see?" he demand to know. "My mother was 100 per cent white," Jeffries said. "My father is Portuguese, American Indian, Negro. How in the hell can I identify myself as one race or another?" Raised in Detroit, Jeffries grew up "a ghetto baby" in a mixed neighborhood without encountering severe racism as a child. In the aftermath of the Wall Street Crash of 1929, he dropped out of high school to earn a living as a singer, he showed great interest in singing during his formative teenage years and was found hanging out with the Howard Buntz Orchestra at various Detroit ballrooms. Intensely musical from boyhood, he began performing in a local speakeasy where he caught the attention of Louis Armstrong, who gave the teenager a note of recommendation for Erskine Tate at the Savoy Ballroom in Chicago. Knowing that Tate fronted an all-black band, Jeffries claimed to be a Creole, was offered a position as a featured singer three nights a week.
He toured with Earl "Fatha" Hines's Orchestra in the Deep South. A 2007 documentary short describes Jeffries as "assuming the identity of a man of color" early in his career, he is shown in Black/White & All That Jazz explaining that he was inspired by New Orleans-born musician Louis Armstrong to say falsely, at a job interview in Chicago, that he was "a Creole from Louisiana" when he was of Irish and Sicilian heritage, among other ethnic backgrounds. From Detroit, at the urging of Louis Armstrong, Jeffries moved to Chicago where he performed in various clubs. One of his first gigs was in a club owned by Al Capone. Jeffries began his career working with his Vendome Orchestra. Tate signed the 19-year-old Jeffries to a contract with his Orchestra at the Savoy Ballroom in Chicago, his break came during the 1933 Chicago World's Fair A Century of Progress International Exposition singing with the Earl Hines Orchestra on Hines' national broadcasts live from the Grand Terrace Cafe. His first recordings were with Hines in 1934, including "Just to be in Carolina".
By 1940, he was singing with the Duke Ellington Orchestra and recorded with him from 1940 to 1942. His 1940 recording of "Flamingo" with Ellington, released in 1941, sold more than 14 million copies in its day, his name had been Herbert Jeffrey, but the credits on the record mistakenly called him Jeffries, so he renamed himself to match the typo. "Flamingo" was covered by a white singer, the popular vocalist Tony Martin. During his time with the Duke Ellington Orchestra as a lead vocalist, Jeffries proved his talent as a mature singer, demonstrating his wide vocal range in such songs as "I Don't Know What Kind of Blues I've Got," "The Brownskin Gal," and "Jump for Joy"; the 1944 single "My Little Brown Book" by Ellington and his Famous Orchestra, on which Jeffries provided vocals, reached No. 4 on Billboard R&B chart. In his teens, Jeffries had developed a fine voice singing in higher registers, he started out his singing career as a lyrical tenor, but, on the advice of Duke Ellington's longtime music arranger, Billy Strayhorn, he lowered his range to mimic the vocal stylings of crooner Bing Crosby.
Jeffries became a "lusty baritone," according to music critic Jonny Whiteside. In 1945, Jeffries had a hit on the Billboard R&B chart with "Left A Good Deal In Mobile", on which he was accompanie

Robert Harrison Blake
Robert Harrison Blake is a fictional character in the Cthulhu Mythos. The character is the creation of H. P. Lovecraft and appears in his short story "The Haunter of the Dark". In Lovecraft's tale, Robert Blake is a young painter from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he comes to Rhode Island and moves into an apartment on College Street. While there, he completes five short stories: "The Burrower Beneath", "The Feaster from the Stars", "In the Vale of Pnath", "Shaggai", "The Stairs in the Crypt", he becomes obsessed with a deserted church on Federal Hill. He learns of a cult, once active there, the Church of Starry Wisdom, his investigation of this cult leads to his death. Lovecraft based Robert Blake on one of his correspondents, the teenage Robert Bloch who had just begun his career as a writer of horror and science fiction. In the story, Lovecraft had Blake residing at Bloch's real-life address at the time: 620 E. Knapp Street, Milwaukee; the development of the Blake character has a notable backstory. The character first appeared as the unnamed narrator of Bloch's "The Shambler from the Stars".
Before he wrote the tale, Bloch thought it would be amusing to kill off a character based on Lovecraft. Lovecraft consented to the idea and gave his permission in the form of a satirical letter, signed by Lovecraft himself and "attested" by several of his creations: Abdul Alhazred, Gespard du Nord, Frederich von Juntz, the "Tcho-Tcho Lama of Leng"; the body of the letter appears as follows: This is to certify that Robert Bloch, Esq. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U. S. A.—reincarnation of Meinheer Ludvig Prinn, author of De Vermis Mysteriis—is authorised to portray, annihilate, transfigure, metamorphose, or otherwise manhandle the undersigned in the tale entitled The Shambler from the Stars. In Bloch's story, the Lovecraft-based character becomes the ill-fated victim of an invisible, vampiric monster summoned from the depths of outer space. Lovecraft was delighted by the story and returned the favor by killing off Robert Bloch, a.k.a. Robert Blake, in "The Haunter of the Dark". Years Bloch wrote a sequel to "The Haunter of the Dark" entitled "The Shadow from the Steeple" in which Robert Blake's death is investigated by his friend Edmund Fiske.
Robert M. Price believes that Robert Blake is not a counterpart to Robert Bloch, but is a combination of three different people: Bloch, Lovecraft himself, Clark Ashton Smith; as one example, Price notes that the dwelling that Blake occupies in Providence parallels Lovecraft's own apartment. Furthermore, like Smith, is a skilled painter and produces bizarre "studies of nameless, unhuman monsters, profoundly alien, non-terrestrial landscapes." Lovecraft sometimes mentioned Smith's art in his own stories whenever he wanted to feature a weird setting or the reproduction of one. In "The Haunter of the Dark", Price believes that Lovecraft took the notion one step further and depicted Smith himself as one of the three aspects of Robert Blake. Other Mythos authors have attempted to supply text for Blake's fictional titles writing them as Blake himself might have. Robert M. Price argues that at least three of these titles have been written. First, "The Feaster from the Stars" is a parallel to Bloch's "The Shambler from the Stars".
Second, "The Stairs in the Crypt" appears to be a cross between two of Bloch's short stories: "The Grinning Ghoul" and "The Secret in the Crypt". Lastly, "The Burrower Beneath" is similar to "The Blasphemy Beneath", an early story that Bloch sent to Lovecraft for review. Price believes that Blake's "In the Vale of Pnath" is another name for Lovecraft's The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, since in the story Randolph Carter is carried to the Underworld and soon realizes that he is "in the vale of Pnath". "Shaggai" may parallel Lovecraft's "The Whisperer in Darkness". Since in "The Haunter of the Dark" Lovecraft says that Shaggai lies beyond Yuggoth, he is adding yet another planet to the solar system a new version of Yuggoth. Since Lovecraft repackaged his Mythos creations in the revision stories he wrote for other authors, Price believes that "Shaggai" is the kind of story that Lovecraft would have ghostwritten if "Robert Blake" had been his client.
