I remember professor Abbott from my days at Umass studying forestry and forest management. I also remember an elective class he taught in wildflower identication. We met at the then ungodly hour of 8 am--the ONLY 8 am class I ever took--and drove around to some of his favorite spots for viewing spring wildflowers. As a major part of the class, we had to submit 20 color slides--remember cameras that used film --of various wildflowers identified with both the scientific name ans a common name. After that class, I never could decide whether to look up or down when I was walking in the woods.
He was a real character and a funny guy; I smile whenever I think of him. I especially enjoyed his Maine accent. It was very familiar to me as my mother's family is from Bath Maine and I spent many summers in West Bath at my other grandparent's summer cottage.
I believe I will visit the J Harry Rich state forest think fondly of Professor Abbott.
