I was very saddened to learn of the passing Monday, Jan. 7, of H. R. Martin
of Hopkinsville, KY.  
     A retired Ag. inspector, H.R. took up fruit exploring and breeding in
earnest in his retirement and created some very interesting grape varieties.
 Besides a cross of S. 9110 x Concord that he spoke highly of, he had some
Vitis aestivalis hybrid seedlings, several of which seemed very promising
when he sent me fruit samples this year.  Some were pure flavored, vinous,
with no off flavors, and one that was aestivalis x Muscat Hamburg was
excellent in flavor and had over 22 Brix, though the berries were small.  
    Hopefully, his material can be saved, and at least one man in the area
said he would approach the family about it.
