Northern Nut Growers Association
SIXTH ANNUAL MEETING
SEPTEMBER 1 AND 2, 1915
ROCHESTER, NEW YORK
The sixth annual convention of the Northern Nut Growers Association was called to order in the convention hall of Powers Hotel, Rochester, New York, on Wednesday, September 1, at 10:15 A.M., the president, Dr. J. Russell Smith, presiding, and thirty-two people being assembled.
THE PRESIDENT: Ladies and Gentlemen, Members of the Northern Nut Growers Association, the meeting will please come to order.
I'm a BIG fan of all the 'Northern Nut Growers...' books. Each one of the series brings some new insight into nut culture.
This report, in particular, offers a vivid description of the 'Big Freeze of 1914', wherein almost everyone in Pennsylvania froze their nuts. The book was the basis for the 1922 silent film classic, 'How Cold Were My Nuts'; starring Wallace Beery, Gloria Swanson, and 'Waggy' the Wonder Dog.
