Forestry College at Los Baños, Philippines

Written by Edward Beckwith on Saturday, July 20, 1940

I photographed specimens for David using the new Zeiss camera and found it much preferable to the Rolleiflex. More photographing in the afternoon including flash lights of seedlings from seeds that David had sent from the Dutch East Indies, Pigaffetas, etc. The fine experimental garden here was interesting.
