Sad News: Malcolm Clark

Malcolm Clark died early the morning of Jan 16, 2009.

Malcolm was one of the Azalea Society guiding lights for many years,
having served as our President, and hosting conventions at Morristown
NJ and Hendersonville NC essentially single handedly. He was a
stickler for correct identification of azaleas, and was a hybridizer
and grower at his Chandler Gardens nursery in Southern Pines NC.

Malcolm was interested in azalea research, and had made a significant
gift to the Azalea Society a few years ago to start a research fund.
Gifts may be made in his memory to

ASA Research Fund
6009 Copely Lane
McLean VA 22101-2507

He was my friend, and the azalea world is poorer for his passing.
