Abstract

During a meeting of the Memphis Lumbermen's Club in the early spring of 19.50, the words of two men initiated one of the most unique research programs ever known in biological circles. On this day, Dr. Curtis .\fay, a government forest pathologist, had been asked to speak to this group on the relatively new disease of oaks, oak wilt. At the conclusion of Dr. .\lay's discussion, the late Leonard H.. Steidel, a Club member, challenged his group to do something constructive in meeting this threat to their chief lumber tree. From this simple beginning, the National Oak Wilt Research Committee was born.
