Biographical/Historical note

In 1954 Arden Jacklin, George Royes and Dwight Hopkins incorporated the Merion Blue Grass Association in Oregon. The purpose of the Association is to promote, advertise and educate the public in the "use and desirable features of" Merion Blue Grass, thereby increasing its consumption. The Association is a non-profit organization. It meets annually in Oregon or Washington to discuss and further its business, and conducts public relations through an office in New York.
