This webpage includes a brief note by an 82-year-old friend, who in his retirement turned his attention to hybridizing some really amazing flowers. In his younger years, Oscie Whatley was one of the engineers who worked on the St. Louis Arch. His son, David, is CEO of Simutronics.
Oscie has been in seriously poor health lately, and many of us are worried about him. I wanted to blog something about him for my memestream though, and decided that pictures of his flowers would be most appropriate. :)
