“People had never seen anybody like me before.”

paul-on-green-roof What an honor it’s been to accompany Paul Meyer, the F. Otto Haas Director of the Morris Arboretum, in the Way Back Machine as he recalls memorable experiences throughout his 40-year tenure at the Arboretum.

As he reminisces, he embodies several roles: botanist-explorer, during the early years when he was Curator of Plants; fundraiser, after he accepted the job as Director; and visionary leader as he imagines the next phase in the Arboretum’s growth.

I was particularly enchanted by his stories about plant exploration in China and South Korea. Listen and I bet you’ll see what I mean.
