FRELINGHUYSEN--Peter. The Board and Staff of The New York Botanical Garden are saddened by the passing of our esteemed Board Member Hon. Peter H.B. Frelinghuysen. A U.S. Congressman from 1953 through 1974, he joined the Botanical Garden's Board in 1977, was an active member of the Horticulture Committee, and served continuously until he was elected a Board Member Emeritus in 1998. Peter was a fine Board Member, an avid gardener, and a good friend. We extend sincere condolences to his family. Maureen K. Chilton, Chairman of the Board Gregory Long, President
