This website is much travelled - from http://www.geocities.com/pennypoint9/vanson/ , via http://pennypoint9.hostrator.com/vanson/, it has now arrived here. Let us hope that a further move is not in the offing
Georges van Son - Orchid Grower
This Website comprises several documents which give one an insight into this Pioneer of Orchid Growing in South Africa.
DR. VAN SON, PIONEER S. A. ORCHID GROWER is an article that I prepared for publication in the South African Orchid Council's Yearbook: ORCHIDS South Africa 2004. It incorporates a set of mimeographed notes which I chanced upon, which stimulated me to undertake this project.
THE VAN SON FILM is a short note concerning an educational film made in 1956/7, in van Son's greenhouses.
A PHOTO ALBUM containing pictures of Georges' parents and other relatives exists on a Website created by the Stichting Familie van Hoogstraten, Amsterdam; relatives by marriage. My page offers a quick guide to the relevant parts of this Website.
