      When Harry Hatt was sworn in as Burlington's Superintendent of Parks and Public Property in April 1952, one of his first concerns was keeping the Schneiders in Crapo Park.

      Fred Schneider had held the caretaker's job at the park for 55 years. His son, Clarence, who was born in the house that bears the family's name, had been his father's assistant but was fired by Hatt's predecessor, Art Hartman.

      "Hartman fired Clarence, and when I went in I hired him back," Hatt recalled. And not just as an assistant groundskeeper: Hatt knew what Fred Schneider didn't want to believe - at 82, the elder Schneider was ready for retirement.

      "I knew I had to be careful how I did it because I knew he'd be hurt by it," Hatt said. "I made Clarence the park man, and I kept his dad on the payroll as a consultant. Fostering the Schneiders' legacy was only a small part of Hatt's contribution to the park, if an integral one. In his 16 consecutive years in the office - longer than anyone else has ever held the position - Hatt changed Crapo Park more than anyone since Philip Crapo himself, yet he carefully safeguarded the timeless beauty and the traditions of the park.

      One of Hatt's most visible changes at the park was Dankwardt Pool.

      When Harry Hatt came on board, the park was home to a once-grand but neglected, dilapidated pool known as the Kiwanis Pool. The pool was constructed in the early 1930s and opened in 1932, but 20 years later its lavish turrets and conical towers had fallen into ugly disrepair.

      Hatt, always ready to go to bat for the community's children, argued that a new pool would be a vital addition and a wise investment for the city. But nay-sayers refused to heed Hatt's logic, saying a new pool would get little use and in 20 years would be the same relic the Kiwanis pool had become.

      But Hatt didn't give up, and by his second year in office he'd convinced voters to endorse a $100,000 bond issue to build the new pool.

      That August, 14-year-old Larry Holihan became the 100,000 person to pass through the pool's gates during its first year of operation. The temperature hovered in the upper 90s and Burlington was named the "hottest spot in the state" that week, but children in the city had a new pool to cool off in thanks to Harry Hatt.

      It was Hatt who came up with and implemented a plan to let local businesses sponsor flower beds in the park - and to get them to line up to do so. Hatt let the business community know a tastefully arranged flower bed spelling out a group or organization's name or logo could be had for a modest donation to the park's flora and its upkeep. The idea filled Crapo Park with bouquets of color and scent.

      It was Hatt who, with friend and fellow youth promoter Dick Wagner, brought the Little League diamonds to Dankwardt Park. It was Hatt who made Lake Starker and its cozy warming house a favorite winter destination, stringing the lake with colored lights and providing music and warm beverages. It was Hatt who, when the park's two cannons were salvaged for scrap during World War II, traveled to an Indiana naval base to procure the guns that sit defiantly atop the Mississippi River bluff, declaring the freedom and ferocity of Iowa's first territorial capital.

      Hatt resigned as superintendent in 1968, but his love of Crapo Park and his dedication to its history never wavered. Failing health will keep the 80-year-old Hatt from attending next weekend's centennial celebration, but his heart will be there, where so much of his energy and commitment still is evident.

      From one generation of caretakers to the next, Harry Hatt hands down a legacy of hard work and closely held values - and this advice.

      "Make the park so people are interested in it. Keep up the flower beds. Get people to think more of the park ... and work for the kids.

    • Hatt dead
      By Linda Taylor
      The Hawk Eye


      Long-time Burlington parks commissioner Harry D. Hatt died Monday, leaving behind a legacy of color, trees and flowers. He was 81.

      Hatt was elected as Burlington's Superintendent of Parks and Public Property in 1952, where he was firmly planted until 1968 when he resigned.

      "His love and dedication for the parks was his passion," his son, Michael Hatt, said. "He was so dedicated to them, and to the beauty of parks during those 17 years he was in office. I think a lot of people in town will remember him for that."

      Paul Hemann, president of Concerned Residents Interested in Streets and Parks, said Hatt was one of the better parks commissioners.

      "He was very aggressive" in getting things done in the parks and at the airport, Hemann said.

      Hatt was instrumental in getting the war guns placed in Crapo Park and the airplane at Burlington Regional Airport, his son said.

      Hatt also helped get the old Kiwanis Pool rebuilt into the Dankwardt Park pool, enlist business donations to fill Crapo Park with flowers, and helped bring Little League baseball to Burlington.

      "He had a lot of guts," long-time friend Lee Honts said. "A real good friend. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for you."

      "The parks were in bad shape when he took over and he really spruced them up," Honts said.

      Hemann and Honts also believe that Hatt was involved in putting on air shows at the airport during his 17 years in office.

      Mayor Tim Scott said it seemed like everyone in town knew him.

      Scott is asking that flags on city, other public and private property be flown at half staff Friday, Saturday and Sunday to honor Hatt and Burlington native Dan Bied, who died last week.

      Hatt's love of the parks will continue in his memory through a memorial established for the city's parks department.

    • Harry D. Hatt, 81, of Burlington, died at 6:24 p.m. Monday, March 30, 1998, at Burlington Care Center, Burlington.

      Born October 18, 1916, in Iowa City, he was the son of Alexander H. and Elizabeth Tice Hatt. On October 25, 1936, he married Dorothy Manley in Ottumwa. She died September 25, 1985.

      Mr. Hatt graduated from Marion High School in Marion. He took a youth course at Coe College, Cedar Rapids, so he could be a scout leader. He taught crafts and nature at Camp Waubek for four years. He then worked in Fairfield as an apprentice pattern-maker. He was a U.S. Army veteran of World War II. Due to injuries sustained in the war, he and his wife moved to Burlington, where he began making shell jewelry, which was sold to Cliff House in San Francisco, California, Kansas City, and Brooklyn, New York. He served as fire department secretary in Burlington for five years, and, in 1951, he was commissioner of Burlington Parks. He retired as Superintendent of Parks in Burlington, a position he held for 17 years.

      He was a member of St. Paul's Catholic Church, VFW Post No. 10102, Eagles, Knights of Columbus, Moose Lodge, Elks Lodge, all of Burlington, D.A.V., and Jr. Chamber of Commerce and Order of the Purple Heart.

      Survivors include one son, Michael Hatt of Bloomingdale, Illinois; two daughters, Judy Gall and Denise Hatt, both of Burlington; foster son, Walter Peszulik of Omaha, Nebraska; nine grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; one brother, John A. Hatt of Cedar Rapids; one sister, Jean MacArthur of San Bernardino, California; nieces and nephews.

      Besides his wife, he was preceded in death by his parents, one infant son, four brothers and three sisters.

      The family will receive friends following a Christian wake at 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. today at Prugh's Chapel.

      The funeral for Mr. Hatt will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, at St. Paul's Catholic Church. Burial will be in Sacred Heart Cemetery, Burlington, with military rites conducted by VFW Post No. 10101.

      A memorial has been established for Burlington City Parks Department.

      A better tribute
      Michael Hatt

      I loudly applaud the City Council's intentions to recognize the hard work of citizens who improve the quality of life in Burlington through the naming of public property to recognize their contributions. It is a lasting tribute to them as well as an inspiration to others.

      My father, Harry Hatt, who passed away last month, was certainly a strong supporter of beautifying the public property along the riverfront area. While serving the city for nearly two decades as commissioner of parks and public property, his leadership led to the beautification of the existing parks, improvements to the grounds at the municipal auditorium, creation of new parks around the city and the expansion of the airport runways and facilities to bring modern air service to the city.

      However, it was after his time in office that the Riverside Park was created. Therefore, like your editorial on April 19, I, too, believe it would not be appropriate to name it after him. Renaming a park or other public property or establishing a memorial that recognized my father's contributions to an area he actually worked on would be more befitting.

      Burlington Parks Advisory Committee Thursday approved a request to rename a service drive in Dankwardt Park after the late Harry D. Hatt former parks commissioner.

      The unanimous vote came after Hatt's daughter, Judy Gall, 9158 Glenmark Drive, asked the board last month to consider doing some kind of memorial to her late father.

      Hatt died in March 1998 at the age of 81.

      He served the city beginning in 1952 when he was elected as the Superintendent of Parks and Public Property. In that position he also served as the airport manager, said Gall.

      The committee also approved putting a plaque honoring Hatt in the large shelter house.

      Both recommendations will go before the City Council in March.

      The one-way drive is located near park offices and winds between a playground and a roller hockey rink.

      Hatt's family will use part of an estimated $800 gift to pay for the plaque. Any money left over will be spent on additional park improvements, Gall said.

      Park board chairman Ron Snyder said the service drive was picked because it does not have a name.

      "I think it's really nice, where it's located is really nice," Gall said. "I think Dad would be really pleased."

    • Newly named Harry D. Hatt Drive in Dankwardt Park will be dedicated Saturday.

      The ceremony will be at 2 p.m. at the service drive that runs between the inline roller-hockey rink and the playground.

      Hatt, who died in 1998, was the city's superintendent of parks and public property for many years. In that capacity, he also managed the airport.

      In February, the city's Parks Advisory Committee approved a memorial to Hatt in the park system.

      Hatt's son, Michael, said he and his family, along with his sister, Judy Gall and her family, another sister, Denise Hatt, and their foster brother, Walter Peszulik, will be there for the ceremony. He asked anyone who knew his father should come and share a memory.

      The committee also approved erecting a plaque at the Dankwardt Park large shelter house honoring Hatt. The plaque will be paid for with Hatt memorial money.

      Michael Hatt said the plaque will be ready for the dedication ceremony.
