Viateur's piece brought back some memories. Edwin Hausermann was very good to me when I was a graduate student working with orchids at Colorado State University. And the company generously provided me with beautiful Cattleyas for my wedding in Downer's Grove all those years ago. Edwin got to visit me in New Zealand at the time of the 13th WOC and the family have been legendary in Midwest orchids. I remember that they brought Herman Pigors in from Germany as Manager and he also has been an absolute rock in the area orchid community. Long may they continue!
