Celebrating George Forrest!
« on: June 21, 2022, 05:48:41 PM »
We in SRGC know how great a fellow George Forrest was, that's why our premier Show Award is named in his honour  so this was no surprise to us ......
Archivist Leonie Paterson has tweeted this:
 
The letter that started plant collector George Forrest's association with @TheBotanics was written #OTD 119 years ago, 21st June 1903, from John Abercromby to I.B.Balfour: Do you know of any person or society who wants a collector? ... He looks the right sort of man...
