August F. Haw [sic] is the shortened placename designated by the United States Postal Service for a South Los Angeles area associated with ZIP codes 90002, 90044, 90051, 90059, and 90061.[1]

It is a corruption of the name of the Augustus F. Hawkins Natural Park, which was recently built in a highly urbanized area of south LA.[2] The park itself is named after former Congressman Augustus Freeman "Gus" Hawkins.

This corrupted name is recognized on an information pass-through basis by a variety of government agencies, including state agencies such as the Southern California Air Quality Management District[3] and the Medical Board of California,[4] and the federal government.[5]

"Turkey in the Straw" is an American folk song that first gained popularity in the 19th century. Early versions of the song were titled "Zip Coon", which were first published around 1834 and performed in minstrel shows, with different people claiming authorship of the song. The melody of "Zip Coon" later became known as "Turkey in the Straw"; a song titled "Turkey in de Straw" with different music and lyrics was published in 1861 together with the wordless music of "Zip Coon" added at the end, and the title "Turkey in the Straw" then became linked to the tune of "Zip Coon".[1][2]

The song is related to a number of tunes of the 19th century and the origin of these songs has been widely debated.[3][4] Links to older Irish/Scottish/English ballads have been proposed, such as "The Old Rose Tree". The song became highly popular and many variations of the song exist. It was also frequently adapted and used in popular media. A song based on the tune of "Turkey in the Straw", "Nigger Love a Watermelon, Ha! Ha! Ha!", has been described as having the "most racist song title".[5]

"Turkey in the Straw" is thought to be originally a tune from 19th century minstrel shows, "Zip Coon" or "Old Zip Coon", published around 1834. The authorship of the song has been claimed by George Washington Dixon who popularized the song, and Bob Farrell and George Nicholls.[2] "Zip Coon" in turn has been linked to a number of 19th folk songs believed to have older antecedents in Irish/Scottish/English folk songs. Songs proposed it has links to include "Natchez Under the Hill", "The Old Bog Hole", "The Rose Tree", "Sugar in the Gourd", "The Black Eagle", "Glasgow Hornpipe", "Haymaker's Dance", "The Post Office", "Old Mother Oxford", "Kinnegad Slasher" and others.[6][7]

Eloise Hubbard Linscott believes that the first part of the song is a contrafactum of the ballad "My Grandmother Lived on Yonder Little Green", published in 1857 by Horace Waters, which is in turn said to be a contrafactum of the Irish/Scottish/English ballad "The Old Rose Tree" published by at least 1795 in Great Britain.[8] The link to "The Old Rose Tree" has been questioned,[4] but a number of musicologists suggest that it may be a composite of "The Rose Tree" and "The (Bonny) Black Eagle".[7] Similar tune was popular with fiddle players as early as 1820, and the tune of "Turkey in the Straw"/"Zip Coon" may have come from the fiddle tune "Natchez Under the Hill" believed to have been derived from "Rose Tree".[9][10]

The title "Turkey in the Straw" later became associated with the tune of "Zip Coon" in an unusual way. According to James J. Fuld, Dan Bryant copyright a song with new lyrics and music titled "Turkey in the Straw" on July 12, 1861, but with the wordless music of "Zip Coon" (but titled "Old Melody") attached at the end. The tune of "Zip Coon" then became known as "Turkey in the Straw".[2]

In 1942, a soundie titled, "Turkey in the Straw" was created by Freddie Fisher and The Schnickelfritz Band (directed by Sam Coslow and produced by Josef Berne). There are two versions to the chorus that are sung. The first goes:

A' Turkey in the Straw, A' Turkey in the grass,A' Turkey in the Straw, "I get a kick outta this.."Roll 'em, twist 'em up a high tuc-ka-haw,Hittin' up a tune called "Turkey in the Straw."

The title of "Zip Coon" or "Old Zip Coon" was used to signify a dandified free black man in northern United States.[11] "Zip" was a diminutive of "Scipio", a name commonly used for slaves.[12] According to Stuart Flexner, "coon" was short for "raccoon" and by 1832 meant a frontier rustic and by 1840 also a Whig.[13] At that time, "coon" was typically used to refer to someone white, it was only in 1848 when a clear use of the word "coon" to refer to a black person in a derogative sense appeared. It is possible that the negative racial connotation of the word may have evolved from "Zip Coon" and the common use of the word "coon" in minstrel shows. An alternative suggestion of the word's origin to mean a black person is that it was derived from barracoon, an enclosure for slaves in transit increasingly used in the years before American Civil War,[11] but on the stage, "coon" could have been used earlier as a black character was named Raccoon in a 1767 colonial comic opera.[14]

"Zip Coon" was sung to the same tune as "Turkey in the Straw",[15] and it was first performed by Bob Farrell, and popularized by George Washington Dixon in the 1830s.[1][11] This version was first published between 1829 and 1834 in either New York or Baltimore. Dixon, and Bob Farrell and George Nicholls had separately claimed to have written the song, and the dispute has not been not resolved.[2] Ohio songwriter Daniel Decatur Emmett is sometimes erroneously credited as the song's author.[16]

"Zip Coon" has a vocal range of an octave and a minor sixth. Both the verse and the chorus end on the tonic, and both begin a major third above the tonic. In the verse, the highest note is a fifth above the tonic and the lowest is a minor sixth below. In the chorus, the highest note is an octave above the last note, and the lowest is the last note itself. The song stays in key throughout.

"Zip Coon" has many different lyrical versions. Thomas Birch published a version in 1834,[18] while George Washington Dixon published a version called "Ole Zip Coon" with different lyrics circa 1835.[19] Both Birch's and Dixon's versions keep the same chorus and the first four stanzas:

I went down to Sandy Hollar t other arternoonAnd the first man I chanced to meet war ole Zip Coon;Ole Zip Coon he is a natty scholar,For he plays upon de Banjo "Cooney in de hollar".

The chorus "Zip a duden duden duden zip a duden day" likely influenced the song "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" in Walt Disney's 1946 adaptation of Joel Chandler Harris' Uncle Remus tales, Song of the South.[15]

"Nigger Love a Watermelon, Ha! Ha! Ha!" is a 1916 adaptation of "Turkey in the Straw", performed by Harry C. Browne and produced by Columbia Records.[22] It has since been named as the most racist song title in the United States for its use of watermelon stereotypes.[22][23][5]

The song was released in March 1916. It was performed by the silent movie actor Harry C. Browne.[24] It was released with "Old Dan Tucker" as a B-side.[25] The music for it was based upon "Turkey in the Straw" and performed with Browne singing baritone whilst playing a banjo with orchestral accompaniment.[26] A contemporary review in July 1916 called it: "... a treat to tickle the musical palates of those who love to listen to the old-time slave-day river songs".[26] Columbia Records continued to promote it up to 1925.[27] The song used racist stereotypes in it with Browne describing watermelons as "colored man's ice-cream".[28]

Radio DJ Dr. Demento, who had played older songs with racial overtones on the radio, refused to ever play this song because he felt that the title showed it was always intended to be hateful.[29] In 2014, Dr. Theodore R. Johnson asserted that the jingle used by many ice cream trucks in the United States was based upon this song.[30] It has been argued that this allegation is incorrect, as the "Turkey in the Straw" tune had been used long before this song was created.[31] Nevertheless, because of the association, a number of American ice cream truck companies ceased to use the "Turkey in the Straw" melody for their jingles.[32]
