Virgil Mitchell's 1995 posts (historical)

Virgil Mitchell was probably “the” early internet rose hybridizer. He prepared a rose hybridizing video that he routed to whoever requested it.

He stopped posting in 1995 when his wife died. The following link gives his rec.gardens.roses posts."Virgil+Mitchell"+group:rec.gardens.roses+group:rec.gardens.roses+group:rec.gardens.roses+group:rec.gardens.roses&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&group=rec.gardens.roses&safe=off&start=0&sa=N


Wow. That is really sad yet inspiring at the same time.
