August 6 email from Paul Camire:
I was able to get a copy of Caroline Dormon's paper on Torreya.
Labeled as 765 on the Northwestern State University archive site of her papers.
It doesn't give an exact year, but it occurred after 1938 and before this paper was sent in 1966.
The most exciting thing is that the largest tree/trees on the preserve are rooted cuttings!
[CORRECTION: In the 2018 posted video on this site, participant discussion reveals that the 3 trees were very likely dug as young seedlings in Florida, confirming what Torreya Guardians already knew: rooted cuttings cannot grow into a tree form.]
The way she describes the roots as "brittle icicles" is golden!
She was a true conservationist and went to a local farmer to get cuttings from trees on his property.
The farmer's land was near Aspalaga. That is the town where Croom discovered Torreya, but the town died out. So the land became part of Torreya State Park. (I believe that is the town she is referring to when she says "Appalachicola".)
