Happy Memorial Day!

Here’s a nice tribute to an old-time super who passed away recently, Harold Peck, who was the superintendent at Battle Creek CC from 1947 to 1988. Published in the Battle Creek (Mich.) Enquirer.

According to the article, he was a charter member of the GCSAA… but that doesn’t sound entirely accurate, as I don’t think he was old enough to have been able to have accomplished that… it also says he was a founder of the Michigan State turfgrass program… but it also states correctly that facts blur over the years, especially when someone accomplishes a lot of things in their lifetime.

Regardless, an interesting article about a person who was obviously a hard-working superintendent, dedicated to his craft. Cheers, Harold Peck, and to all those friends who aren’t with us anymore…
