Eliza Greenman reports the sad news:
It is with a heavy heart to report the passing of C. Lee Calhoun, Southern apple hunter.
Calhoun is the author of Old Southern Apples. For many years he and his wife, Edith, operated a nursery that was a source of rare and regional apple varieties.
Greenman met Calhoun several times. Her account includes more about the man, his life, and his devotion to apples.
