NOTES ON THE EARLY HISTORY, HORTICULTURAL SECTION
ASSOCIATION SOUTHERN AGRICULTURAL WORKERS
G. H. Blackmon
When one looks back into the history of the Horticultural Section of the Association of Southern Agricultural Workers, one can realize the extensive changes that have come about in southern horticulture. The Section, in those days, was not affiliated with the American Society for Horticultural Science, and was considered solely as a Division of the Association of Southern Agricultural Workers as indicated. The programs consisted of general topics and the meetings were held in one room. Frequently there would not be over 25 or 30 attending the Horticultural Section, although occasionally it might reach as many as 40 interested in horticulture.
In 1928, a typical program included a discussion on extensive landscape work; applications of physiological studies to horticultural problems; more economic direction in horticultural workers; horticultural investigation by the U. S. Department of Agriculture; pruning apply trees; fertilizing fruit trees; fruit bud differentiation in the tung oil tree; economic fire heated hot bed, and certified Irish potato seed. These general subjects were carried in two afternoon of February 1 and 2, 1928, and the meetings were held in Atlanta.
In 1931 there were discussions on fruit freezing; peach pruning, certain type of injury to peach and apple; apple pollination; moisture relation to horticultural plants; peach situation; selection of native blueberry; tung-oil; four papers on pecans, including test planting, terminal growth and blooming; variation of performance and general pecan studies; records on home and market gardens; amount of formaldehyde treatments; teaching landscape by the sand-box method; road beautification; transmitting horticultural information; Fordhook bush lima bean; growth of asparagus, and one general address.
During this early period, some of the horticulturists were active that are now even on the retired list, or have passed on. Professor J. C. C. Price was Chairman the first session I attended in Atlanta in 1925. Then, Dr. T. H. McHatten was Chairman in 1927. Dr. J. R. Cooper was Chairman in 1930. There have been many of these old-timers who have held an important place in southern horticulture and have contributed to the development and growth of the industry through the region. They have been influential both from the standpoint of research as well as disseminating information, training and direction of horticultural students who have gone through the classrooms.
Dean E. J. Kyle, retired, Texas A & M College, who for many years was head of the Department of Horticulture at that College, took great interest in students in horticulture, and had much to do with popularizing horticulture in Texas which was felt throughout the southern region. C. L. Isbell, of Alabama, did an outstanding piece of work with reference to the growth and improvement of pecans. R. A. McGinty, of South Carolina, was noted for his interest in the field of vegetable research, teaching and administration. He did a great amount of work a few years before his death in connection with the Research and Marketing Act Regional Projects. Harold Mowry, in Florida, who worked in the field of horticulture for many years did outstanding research with tung-oil, citrus fruits, deciduous fruits and ornamentals. He did the first research work with minor elements on tung and citrus in Florida which changed the entire situation with reference to their growth and production. He later became Director of the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station, now retired and is connected with the Point Four Program as Consulting Director to the Minister of Agriculture in Costa Rica. There are numerous other old-timers about whom we could write, but these few will give a very good idea as to the type of men who helped to build horticulture in the Southern Region and really put the industry on the map.
