HELD--Huyler. The Board and staff of The New York Botanical Garden are saddened by the death of Board Member Huyler Held. He was a knowledgeable amateur gardener, a passionate preservationist, and an upstanding citizen active in many fine causes. Huyler's interests at the Botanical Garden included the historic lilac collection, many other horticultural activities, and the Bronx Green-Up community gardening program. His charming sense of humor enlivened many Garden occasions and he will be missed by all of us. Maureen K. Chilton, Chairman Lionel Goldfrank III, Chairman of the Executive Committee Gregory Long, CEO and The William C. Steere Sr. President Thomas J. Hubbard, Chairman Emeritus Wilson Nolen, Chairman Emeritus
