About the Author:

Fred Charles Galle was formerly the Director of Horticulture at Callaway Gardens, Pine Mountain, Georgia, 1953-1979, and served as Curator until his retirement in August of 1983. Active in many horticultural organizations, Galle was the president of the American Rhododendron Society, 1979-1981, winning its Gold Medal Award in 1983. He has also served as a past director of the Holly Society of America, and president of both the American Association of Botanic Gardens and Arboreta and the American Horticultural Society. From 1964 until 1971, Mr. Galle served on the Advisory Council of the United States National Arboretum in Washington , D.C. His landmark book, Azaleas, published by Timber Press in 1985, was listed by the U.S.D.A. National Agriculture Library at Beltsville, Maryland, as one of the fifty great American gardening books. Another one of his books, Hollies: the Genus Ilex, won the American Horticultural Society Book Award and, according to August E. Kehr, it is the "'first authoritative and comprehensive guidebook"' on hollies in the English language. Galle received his bachelor and masters degree in Horticulture from Ohio State University and did graduate work at the University of Tennessee. He was also a veteran of World War II, winning a Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and a Cluster. In 1964, Galle was elected a Fellow of The Royal Horticultural Society, London, Great Britain.
