The Crown Gall Conference is still going strong.  The last meeting was
just held the weekend before Thanksgiving at Cornell University in Ithaca
NY. The next meeting will probably be in the early autumn on the West
Coast in order to honor Eugene Nester on his 65th birthday. This meeting
is small(50-75 people) and tends to be very friendly. Stan Gelvin (Purdue
in Indiana)and Steve Farrand (U OF Ill,urbana) would be a couple of the
people you could contact to find out about this years meeting. Good luck!
