Description
Letter from Sterling Morton to C. E. Godshalk saying while he supports the proposal to set up a course at the Arboretum for training professional gardeners, he was not envisioning the much more ambitious plan proposed in the letter from Mr. Carleton. The Arboretum has sufficient funds in its endowment to operate it along its present lines, but that may not be true in the future. The Founder wanted a privately endowed, privately maintained, and privately managed organization, with no affiliates. Morton does not want political or university control of any part of the Arboretum. If Carleton, or others, wishes to establish a school outside of the Arboretum, students could get experience at the Arboretum, but under the direction of the Director. Morton makes it clear that as long as he is Chairman, there will be no affiliates connected with the Arboretum. A P.S. states that the German fountain has arrived and been installed.
