Title: The American Pomological Society and Its Value to Apple Producers
Author: H.W. Fogle
The American Pomological Society is honored to meet again with North Carolina apple growers. Only 8 years ago, the two groups met jointly here in Asheville.

Probably most of you have had some contact with the Society, and I know several of you are memebers.
