The Carlin Aden Contest (traditional rhyme and meter)
The Carlin Aden Contest for poems with traditional rhyme and meter began in 1990. First judged by Ed Harkness, the contest was named after Carlin Aden for his long years of inspiration in writing formalist poetry.
Carlin Aden was a founding member of the Washington Poets Association and served as a board member through most of the 1970s and 80s. During some of the 1980s he was an exchange teacher in Europe. He served as board president from 1981 to 1983. As an educator, he was principal of Clover Park High School in Lakewood, Washington, and an instructor of English and creative writing at Ft. Steilacoom (now Pierce Community College).
Aden was an unabashed and enthusiastic supporter of poetry. He was the author of six books including 25 Poems published by the WPA, The Drum Tuners with an introduction by his friend William Stafford, and The Seventh Gate with blurbs by Howard Corning of the Portland Oregonian and Beth Bentley.
An introductory quotation from William Stafford: "There is a direct human interest, an alert awareness of others and events that illuminate the possibilities of our lives and just as the Aden conversation has a burning urgency about it, so do the poems."
Beth Bentley wrote that "He is both wise and witty in his survey of the human scene, expert at observing human folly as well as human loyalties. . . . Indeed, Aden's voice is so attuned to the human predicament that it is impossible not to feel empathy with almost all he writes."
Aden was involved in several writing groups, one in Tacoma as well as the Pacific Northwest Writers Conference. He conducted workshops around the state and did readings in Washington as well as Portland, Oregon. He appeared on panels with Stafford, David Wagoner, and Laura Jensen. Amelia Haller characterized him as "a good listener and everyone listened to him when he talked."
Carlin Aden critiqued many poets. The following is an observation of his from a review of Ballad for a Striped Bass by Anne Fasulo: "Her poem, without saying so, is about love. And that's how to write a poem about love; do it without saying so."
Respected for his work with traditional forms, Aden also wrote free verse and one of his six books was entitled Prose Poems.
On May 14, 1989, Tom Erdmann Jr. moved to rename the Adult Traditional Contest as the Carlin Aden Contest. At the same meeting, the Junior Traditional Contest for students was renamed after Betty Fukuyama and the Totem Award for students was renamed after Tom Erdmann "in honor of founders of the WPA."

Enne came to New York, USA about 1865 from Germany, and settled in Minonk, Woodford Co., IL. On a trip to NE visiting his kinfolk (who were they?), he met
Hiskia, soon marrying her. They moved to IL where three more children (Ella, Dora, John ADEN) were born.
Enna and Hiskia farmed in Illinois. After the death of his wife, Hoskia, in 1884, Enne took the children to Nebraska to his relatives to be raised. This is proven by the 1885 NE Census on which Ella and John appear. Family believes Hiskia’s death was due to ongoing complications of the childbirth of John Ennen two years prior. Enne stayed in NE,
but switched residences every couple of years. Enne "Henry" never remarried. After the kids got a bit older, Henry gathered them up and moved them to Walla Walla WA.
Ennen managed to stay with his children, one family at a time, throughout his lifetime. He was a farmer and had a passion for flowers, always planting and tending them.
Ennen and Hoskia spoke German in their home, and the children (two sons and two daughters) were expected to learn English from their American playmates.
Enne Heinrich was known to be very brilliant (a high IQ), to have been very slender, and to stand over 6 feet tall.

“Big John” (he stood 6’ – 6 1/2 “ tall) farmed in NE during the time he was there, then moved out west with his father and sister. His ultimate destination was Walla Walla WA, then still part of the Oregon Territory. Here he farmed a pretty good parcel of land for the landowner and did well with horses. He worked for a grocery for a short while, and then moved to the Mill Creek area.
He married Freda Bryant in Walla Walla on 30 Apr 1911, just two days after her 18th birthday.
They issued four offspring, two boys and two girls. Freda became a great cook, feeding the family and all the farmhands. At a later point in John's life he sold out and moved to town. He resided in a smaller home that was built around the 1920's, but it was groomed well both inside and out. It was at this time that he went to work for the Walla Walla State Prison System as a guard. He was at that position until retirement.
When John was asked about any siblings, he claimed to have had an older brother, deceased, but that was a long time ago. The question was posed in the 1960s.... This writer found out his half-brother was a son from his mother's first marriage (she was a former widow). John and Nick were pretty close, exchanged many letters and shared visits until Nick's death.
The day before his death, John was up and active for an elder. He'd cleaned the furnace already, but checked it again (always cautious about the oil heat). A normal day for him when he had already cleaned off the sidewalk and porch too. A hard worker, he was. No question about it. That night he went to bed as normal, and the next morning his wife found him lifeless. We know that his spirit yet lives, and his family is surely around him, now, and forever more.
Note: All four children of John and Freda had near genius level IQ’s (“genius” officially begins at 140). They were all very brilliant academically.

Mr. Aden was in the field of education. He practiced in the Tacoma School District for high school biology/sciences; next as Hudtloff Jr. High principal in the late 1950’s; on to the school district administration offices; teaching in the local community college level; and ended his career as a creative writing instructor overseas, for the University of Maryland.
In addition to his love of fishing, he wrote a considerable amount of nationally published poetry, winning several awards and mentions. He belonged to Kiwanis, Masons and several community associations.
No issue. (Two adopted children).

Clifford Ennen ADEN , ID: I549047979, M, b: 7 Apr 1914 in Walla Walla Co., WA., d. 3 Jul 2001 in Port Angeles, WA
== Dorothy King
Note: Clifford was a Washington State patrolman from 1937 through 1970, and then he was promoted to the position of
Director of the Washington State Traffic Safety Commission under governors Dan Evans and Dixie Lee Ray through 1977.
Cliff Aden served the State for 40 years. He was born April 7, 1914 in Walla Walla and after attending Whitman College
where he was an outstanding athlete and at 6’-6” tall and weighing 210 pounds, was a starting offensive tight end and wide
receiver on his college football team. He joined the State Patrol in the Port Angeles District in 1937 and shortly thereafter
married Dorothy King, who survived him. He was transferred to Olympia in the summer of 1960 and ultimately rose to then
rank of major before retiring. His seven years' service in the Traffic Safety Commission saw many improvements and earned
the praise of two governors before his retirement from State service. Cliff and Dorothy returned to Port Angeles to their
friends and relatives in 1988. Cliff passed away peacefully after a short illness on the evening of July 3rd, 2001 and is
survived by his wife and by his daughter, Nancy, and grandson, Michael, both of whom are living in Auckland, New Zealand,
and by his sisters Wanda Sutich in Olympia and Marion Culley in Weston, Oregon. Cliff's great good humor and his
compassion for everyone he met will be remembered both in the State Patrol and the Olympic Peninsula for many years.

Marion is remembered for the spread she put on the table at mealtime. A farmer's wife with a parcel of children, the woman could really satisfy a person's hunger. She also had a sense of humor that is recalled as wry, to the writer, but she was a fun and active person to be around. She certainly wasn't afraid of working the farm with Herb, as she had to do the crops (wheat) too. The oldest children watched the younger ones many times, as was expected. Marion
graduated from the University of Washington with a bachelors degree in nursing.
