Ampersand Club broadside, talk at the Landscape Arboretum, 1982

"...Then I asked Eleanor, 'Wouldn't it be fun if we could be identified with the library portion of the [Synder] building [at the Arboretum]?' She could not help but concur. I had already started collecting rare books about horticulture. A library is books. I did not wait for the construction of a building to start amassing the books to fill it."
