In Memoriam: Harry Cyril Wright

It is with the deepest regret that we of the Scottish Chapter have to advise ARS members of the sudden passing of Harry Wright, Arduaine Lodge, Argyll, Scotland. Rhododendron lovers everywhere will be aware that Harry along with his brother Ed devoted over 20 years to the restoration and enhancement of Arduaine Gardens transforming the area into a plantsman's paradise.

A shy person, Harry remained at all times a gentleman. At almost 80 years of age, he retained a keen mind and ready wit, delighting his friends constantly with his fund of stories and gentle humour. We shall all miss him.

Harry is survived by his two younger brothers, Ed, who continues to live at Arduaine, and Louis, who presently resides in Cornwall, England.
