Your written word has graced the pages of publications ranging from local newsletter to international journals. You have taken on all responsibilities from chapter executive to the international Director of Chapters at Large. You co-chaired the 1989 ARS annual convention which produced an attendance record that has yet to be equaled. You have always given freely of your time, your talents, and your plants. You are, unequivocally, an outstanding diplomat for the American Rhododendron Society and the genus Rhododendron. With grateful appreciation, the American Rhododendron Society is proud to award the Silver Medal to Norman Todd. May 3, 2003, Olympia, Washington.
