Cool article, Tony!

It's interesting to see the crosses that plant breeders attempted a hundred
years ago.  They tried all sorts of wide crosses that I would assume could
not work, and sometimes they were successful.

The author is listed as "A. Worsley."  I wonder if he's Arthington Worsley,
the guy that Worsleya is named after.  He would have been age 40 when the
article was published in 1901.

Google Books is a great resource for looking up things in old publications.
