|I had heard something had happened just a very short time ago when I tried to access his website and his slide show: 'The Virtual Lily Patch' and I couldn't get through. And the information I heard about him at that time was very sketchey. I enjoyed reading every article he ever wrote. I liked his attitude of "don't baby any weak seedlings" and "don't get stuck on a pretty flower alone" and "let nature take it's course" when it came to desease resistance evaluation. I learned a lot from his articles in my early days of crossing/seeding and those three concepts above run deep in me today because of him.
A truely great person with a very interesting Bio.
Thanks for posting Anthony, and if you have any additional information, please post or Tree Mail me.

|Oh! This is the first I've heard of it. I remember his involvement in the early days of the NWTLS, and admired his pioneering. He was one of those inspirational hybridists - a rare personality. Such a contribution he made!|
