[From A Rose Odyssey
, p. 118:] ...in 1925...I stopped at Hinckley...to see two interesting men, father and son Hurst
. The father was ninety six, and the son, known as Major Hurst, was a great student of Mendelism. Since then he has taken a degree of doctor at Cambridge University, given up the nursery, and become professor of genetics....vast collection of rose species both had accumulated for study and cross-breeding experiments. The place was at Burbage, three miles out of Hinckley...Since then the father has died and the son has sold the nursery to his superintendent, George Geary
. The latter is doing some hybridization, but so far, nothing startling has yet come to America, although the HT Mrs. George Geary is appreciated in England.
