As a nurseryman, your innovativeness and management ability have contributed immensely to the distribution and popularization of the genus Rhododendron. You have become a recognized leader in your field. As significant as your business achievements are, they are no more important to our society than your contributions as a person. You have given freely of your time, your experience, and your plants. Few members have served their fellowmen better.
It is with grateful appreciation that the Officers and Directors of the American Rhododendron Society awards its Silver Medal to Bruce Briggs this 1Oth day of October, 1987.
