Dr. William L. Ackerman 1923-1913
The world of botanical research lost a shining star last month when Dr Wm Ackerman died. Growing Camellias in Cold Climates was one of his many publications. I visited his home in Ashton, Maryland a few years ago and he had a remarkable collection of camellias. He continued working and researching after he retired. 'Sweet October'? was the name of a very sweet, fall-blooming camellia with white flowers which I remember.
