Letter from Sterling Morton to the Board of Trustees of The Morton Arboretum sharing that Godshalk spoke at the Shade Tree Conference in Santa Barbara, giving a comprehensive talk about the Arboretum, then showed a set of remarkably fine colored pictures. He received an outstanding response. Both Morton and Godshalk were approached throughout the rest of the conference with inquiries about the Arboretum's work. In his introduction of Godshalk, Morton called attention to the fact that after graduation, Godshalk worked as a laborer, but within a year he was named superintendent, ultimately becoming director of the Arboretum. Those who had not already visited the Arboretum expressed interest in visiting as soon as possible. They can all be proud of the work they are doing at the Arboretum.
