CRFG Publications 1969-1989 Index
For many years an index of CRFG publications was determined to
be necessary and past due. Like many other time-consuming projects
it needed a catalyst to get started. In 1988 Emory Walton of
the Tri-Counties Chapter computerized the titles and authors of
the CRFG publications for chapter use. That was the starting
point. He gave me a copy of his work on floppy disk and I decided
to expand it with pertinent cross-references. Most of the titles,
authors and issue references were done by him. David M. Guggenheim
assisted me in reviewing each article to decide its applicability
to the selected headings.
The descriptive paragraphs are predominantly from:
A Guide to Tropical Fruit Trees and Vines
published by the Brevard Rare Fruit Council of Indiatlantic,
We wish to express our appreciation to Brevard Rare Fruit Council
for allowing us to use its material and to Don Matchette, who
was president of that organization when this project was started
in April 1989; also, to Claire A. Guggenheim for keyboarding these
descriptions and to Clytia M. Chambers for her many hours of proofreading.
In a project of this magnitude, errors may exist. If so, I would
appreciate hearing about them to correct future editions. I hope
this index will be of value, not only to those involved in research,
but also to the many CRFG members who seek the personal satisfaction
of increasing their knowledge and gardening techniques.
