Report of the New York Agricultural Experiment Station for the Year 1914

 As in the previous fruit books some prominence is given in footnotes to biography.  A knowledge of the career of those who have been giants in their day in the development of any industry is most helpful to the best understanding, indeed, is almost indispensable to the fullest comprehension, of the industry.  The short footnotes, it is hoped, will serve to give some conception of what the master builders in pomology were like in training, character, and methods of work.  From the reception which these sketches in former fruit books have received, the writers feel that the considerable expenditure of time and thought that these biographical notices have required is amply justified and that the effort to give credit due and some small honor to the promoters of pomology has been well worth while.  For aid in the preparation of The Cherries of New York I am especially indebted to those whose names appear on the title page, to my associate, Mr.  R. D. Anthony, for reading proof; to the Station editor, Mr. F. H. Hall, who has had charge of the proof reading; to Zeese-Wilkinson Company, New York City, who have had an especially difficult task in making the color-plates and who have done the work well; and to the J.B. Lyon Company, Albany, New York, for their painstaking work in printing the book.
