Mr. Carter is a Yale Forest School man. He feels a great affection for W. H. Brewer whom the studnts call the "Old Man."
August 2, 1906.
Brewer is now Emeritus Professor. Brewer occasionally talks to Forest School students. "It was my fate never to have a valuable useful tree named after me. Relics of an antediluvian age like Picea Breweriana or scrub oaks like Quercus Breweri."
Toumey delights in 1 or 2 jokes says Carter. After spending some hours out on the snow identifying trees by their winter branchlets Toumey runs some man who hasn't been paying attention up against a common apple tree. After the student blunders a guess, Toumey says: Why that is a common apple tree. Haw, haw, haw. Also "You can recognize the Dogwood by its bark."
