W9863s TO T.B. McQuesten from Frank E. Milne
Aug 23 1942
To: T.B. McQuesten
From: Frank E. Milne

79 Sussex Avenue
Hamilton, Ontario
Aug 20/42

Dear Mr McQuesten,1

During the return journey in the bus from the Niagara Falls trip we were talking of a report on the work of the common earth worm which you thought might be of interest to the students in your gardeners' school. The work in question is a three-volume report. "Our Friend the Earthworm" by Dr. Oliver of the California Earthworm Experimental Farm. I don't know the location of the Experimental farm.

I am also attaching the mention of a means of making concrete castings resemble weathered bronze.

Yours truly
Frank Shuilne

1 This letter was mentioned in W9863r, from T.B. McQuesten to Matt Broman.

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.
