I know you have been waiting a long time John, but I know Mark pretty well 
and 25 years ago he was still in graduate school and 24 years ago (1976) he 
had only started his first tissue culture work in graduate school with trees 
and shrubs.  It was 1978 when Mark first tissue-cultured a hosta.

The first hosta that Mark measured was in 1981 at the Iowa City 
Mini-convention and he was doing it to make sure the measurements in the 
catalogue for Walters Gardens was correct.  It was in 1983 that he decided to 
start taking measurements with the intention of printing the results in a 
book. (Thus, it has been 17 years so John, you are close!)

As I am trying to get a book review of Mark's book for the next Journal I 
have been bugging him weekly about getting a copy to Warren Pollock to 
review.  Mark finally was able to get a copy mailed out to Warren today.  I 
just talked to Mark about an hour ago.

Mark is a perfectionist and to show how great a guy Mark is; he received the 
first 500 copies of the book from the bindery today rather than ship them off 
to the advance purchasers he had the sense to check them first and, as often 
happens in the book business, they (the bindery) screwed it up and the last 
few pages in most of the books wouldn't open.  Mark has had them start the 
process over and get it right.  Luckily he was able to get one copy that was 
mostly "openable" to Warren for me so it will be reviewed in the next issue 
of the Journal.

Mark is looking out for us making sure the books are the best they can be!
