Barbara William, Horace Sykes helpful granddaughter from Corpus Christi, Texas, sends this 1955 clipping showing Horace in a Post-Intelligencer story about an upcoming orchid show of which he is an important part. The story notes that the origins of Sykes interest in growing orchids originated in his delight in photographing examples brough home by his daughter. (One line is missing fronm the clip, but it does not seem essential.) Thanks Barb.
