W9861k TO MATT BROMAN from his associate T.B. McQuesten
Jun 25 1936
To: Matthew Broman Niagara Parks Commission, Niagara Falls Ontario
From: T.B. McQuesten

[ONTARIO CREST - shield and animals]
Office of the Minister of Highways

Toronto , June 25, 1936.

Matthew Broman, Esq.,
Niagara Parks Commission,1,2
Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Dear Mr. Broman:

I am very much interested in the attached bulletin of Morton Arboretum in respect to crabapples. I would like to see you get them all. I draw your attention especially to the description of the Sargent Crabapple, Malus Sargenti, as a variety which might be planted in the vicinity of Table Rock House, that lies on the ground and will take plenty of punishment.
T.B. McQuesten

1 Matt Broman worked very closely with Thomas B. McQuesten on many of his projects in Hamilton and in Niagara. There is a plaque commemorating Matt Broman's work at the RBG near the Thomas B. McQuesten High Level Bridge. There is also a small lookout park named after him on the brow overlooking King's Forest Park in Hamilton. The series of letters beginning with "986" are all the "Broman" letters.

For more information on T.B. McQuesten see his biography.
