In Memoriam



In Memoriam: Donald E. Herman, 1930-1999

We announce with profound regret the sudden passing of Don Herman on 23 June 1999. Don was past president of both the American Orchid Society (1992-1994) and Orchid Digest Corporation as well as respected orchid judge and hybridizer. He was a towering figure and popular speaker at World Orchid Conferences, including the 16th in Vancouver. Tributes will be published in both Orchids and the Orchid Digest. His family has requested that memorial gifts be made to either the AOS Headquarters Development Fund or to the Orchid Digest Jack Fowlie Color Fund.
