Sampan

A sampan is a flat-bottomed Chinese and Malay wooden boat. Some sampans include a small shelter on board and may be used as a permanent habitation on inland waters. Sampans are used for transportation in coastal areas or rivers and are used as traditional fishing boats, it is unusual for a sampan to sail far from land, as they do not have the means to survive rough weather. The word "sampan" comes from the original Cantonese term for the boats, sāan báan meaning "three planks"; the name referred to the hull design. The design resembles Western hard chine boats like the scow or punt. However, Pierre-Yves Manguin pointed out possible Austronesian origin of the word, attested in a Malay inscription from 684 CE. Sampans oars or may be fitted with outboard motors. Sampans are still in use by rural residents of Southeast Asia in Malaysia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. In the Malay community in Southeast Asia, they use the term sampan for their boats. Large boats such as sampan panjang and perahu panjang are used and built by the Malays and Orang Laut living in their coastal villages.

William H. Ray House

The William H. Ray House is a historic house located at 415 South University Avenue in Provo, Utah. A prominent non-Mormon in Provo, William H. Ray was one of the founders of the State Bank of Provo. A financier and broker, Ray organized the Ray Investment Company as an insurance and real estate brokerage firm; the William Ray House, built around 1898, "Combines Romanesque Revival elements with classical detailing in a personalized manner." The William H. Ray House was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 and was designated to the Provo City Historic Landmark Register on April 28, 1995. Built between the years 1893 and 1908 in Provo, this group of Victorian mansions are significant and represent not only fine architecture but some of the most successful men of the city and state at the time; these mansions include the Charles E. Loose House, the William H. Ray House, the Knight-Allen House, the John R. Twelves House, the Jesse Knight House, the Knight-Mangum House, the Thomas N. Taylor House.

All of these homes derive from the high style: Eastlake, Craftsman, Classical, Moorish and Romanesque Revivals. Made of brick, these homes exhibit the finest architecture and most ornate detailing to be found in the city of Provo. Born on December 30, 1864 to William and Martha E. Ray, in Gentry County, Missouri, WIlliam H. Ray grew up on a farm. After becoming certified as a teacher, Ray worked in Iowa, Nebraska, before settling in Salt Lake in 1890. Once in Salt Lake, Ray worked as a car inspector for the Union Pacific Railroad and the Oregon Short Line Railway Company, in addition to this invested in real estate. "In spite of limited salary from the railway company and therefore limited investment funds, in a period of five years he had advanced to become the senior partner in W. H. Ray Company, the largest real estate business in the area." In 1894 William H. Ray married Lottie L. Chappell, had six children. Ray was a member of the Provo Community Congregational Church. Ray was buried in Provo.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 as part of a multiple property submission that nominated seven and listed six Provo houses. The listed houses are the Knight-Mangum House, the John R. Twelves House, the Jesse Knight House, the Knight-Allen House, the William H. Ray House, the Thomas N. Taylor House; the seventh, the Charles E. Loose House, was determined to be NRHP-eligible but was not NRHP-listed due to owner objection. 2002. "Historic Provo" Provo City Landmarks Commission.
