W9863d TO MATT BROMAN from his associate, H.A. Gleason
Feb 27 1942
To: Matt Broman, Niagara Falls, Ontario
From: H.A. Gleason



President: Joseph R. Swan
Vice Presidents: Henry Baldwin, John L. Merrill.
Director: William J. Robbins, Treasurer: Arthur M. Anderson

Feb 27, 1942.

Mr.K.M. Broman1, 2
Training School for Apprentice Gardeners
Niagara Falls, Ontario

Dear Sir:

There are no pines native to chile.

There are a number of conifers native to the southern Andes, but belonging to different genera from the pines. All of them are of great geological age. Possibly the name Chile Pine3 refers to one of these other conifers, but without more information it is obviously impossible to be sure which one is meant.

Very truly yours,
H.A. Gleason
Assistant Director

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 part of the Broman collection.

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