Contributor Notes

See Jones, H. A. 1928. Joseph Tooker Rosa, Jr. Proc. Amer. Soc. Hort. Sci. 25:397, for curriculum vitae. Dr. Rosa was survived by his wife, Bess, nee Naylor, a professional home economist, and 4 children.

I am grateful to professors O. A. Lorenz and C. M. Rick of the Univ. of Calif., Davis, Department of Vegetable Crops, for making available the photograph and other material in the files of the Department.

The cause of Dr. Rosa's sudden death remains a mystery. Feeling badly, he left the field in the afternoon for home and went to bed. The next day he died. His physicians suspected a virulent virus, but the exact cause was not determined.
