Gold Medal Award
Few members have contributed so much to so many over so long a period as you have. Your ability and industry in identifying and collecting many important rhododendron species have added immeasurably to the knowledge of the genus for plant lovers the world over. Your willingness to share this knowledge by articles, lectures, and plant donations makes your contributions truly unique and beneficial.
The Officers and Members of the American Rhododendron Society gratefully award the Gold Medal to Warren E. Berg this 29th day of April, 1989.
