Title: Alfred J. Fordham, (1911-2000) Papers: Guide.
Quantity: 0.67 linear feet
Abstract: Fordham's father was the superintendent of the R and J Farquhar Company, a leading
nursery and importer of rare plants that were introduced by Charles Sargent and E.
H. Wilson. Following the advice of his father and E.H. Wilson, Al Fordham came directly
to the Arnold Arboretum as a student trainee in 1929. He would continue his association
with the Arboretum until his retirement in 1977, rising to the position of chief propagator.
Known unofficially as "The Propagator's Propagator," Fordham became a nationally and
internationally recognized plant propagator. Mr. Fordham continued his involvement
in plant propagation research, and continued to share his knowledge through giving
talks on horticultural subjects until his death in December, 2000. The Alfred J. Fordham
papers reflect his contribution to horticulture and botany as a plant propagator,
lecturer, teacher, and author of over 50 published papers.
Provenance: In large part the Alfred J. Fordham Papers were acquired during Mr. Fordham's
tenure at the Arnold Arboretum. Some of the items were given to the Arboretum after
Mr. Fordham's retirement.

Alfred J. Fordham was born January 22, 1911, in Roslindale, Massachusetts. The second of four children, Fordham was the son of Patrick William and Sarah Ellen
Fordham. His early childhood was spent his Dedham, Massachusetts and he graduated from Dedham High School in 1929. Fordham's father was the superintendent of the R and J Farquhar Company, a leading nursery and importer of rare plants that were introduced by Charles Sargent and E. H. Wilson. Following the advice of his father and E.H. Wilson, Al Fordham came directly to
the Arnold Arboretum as a student trainee in 1929. He would continue his association with the Arboretum until his retirement in 1977,
rising to the position of chief propagator. While a student trainee Al Fordham continued
his education at night school and studied mathematics, science and other subjects
relevant to horticulture. His talents were quickly recognized and he was appointed
assistant propagator in 1930. Although Mr. Fordham never received a formal degree
in horticulture, he was a productive researcher and widely published author. He also
took many extension courses at Massachusetts's universities and was an exchange student
at the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens in England in 1936-37. Mr. Fordham came to specialize in plant propagation. He focused on the
study of dwarf and abnormal conifers, particularly seedlings raised from witches'
broom seeds of various species of pines. Fordham studied barriers to germination of
woody plants, seed dispersal, and techniques to speed up germination. He published
more than 50 articles on plant propagation in various journals, and became a popular
lecturer. Known unofficially as "The Propagator's Propagator," Fordham became a nationally
and internationally recognized plant propagator. In 1971 he received the prestigious
International Plant Propagators Society Award of Merit, given at irregular intervals to individuals whose work is considered especially
significant. He received numerous other awards as well.
Mr. Fordham was also an accomplished clarinetist, and played in several orchestra
concerts and bands. He had aspired to be a musician as a youth, before finding his
calling at the Arnold Arboretum. Alfred Fordham married Mary E. Redmayne in 1939, and had one daughter. He lived in Westwood for many years, where he tended
an extensive garden and well-appointed yard. Mr. Fordham continued his involvement
in plant propagation research, and continued to share his knowledge through giving
talks on horticultural subjects until his death in December, 2000.
In addition to his papers the Arboretum maintains a collection of his 33mm color
slides. The Alfred J. Fordham Slide Collection is curated by the Living Collections
The Alfred J. Fordhan collection is organized in 4 series:
- Series: I. Biographical Material
- Series: II. Correspondence
- Series: III. Publications
- Series: IV. Research: Slides of Witches Brooms
The Alfred J. Fordham papers reflect his contribution to horticulture and botany as
a plant propagator, lecturer, teacher, and author of over 50 published papers. The
collection covers Fordham's arrival at the Arboretum in 1929 at the age of 18 and
includes correspondence from the 1960s to the 1980s, primarily concerned with plant
propagation issues specific to various species. Biographical information is included,
but there are few details of Fordham's personal life or early education and how he
became a student at the Arnold Arboretum. The Fordham papers also include publications,
newspaper clippings, letters of recommendation and a cassette tape interview.
Current version of this finding aid is available at the Archives of the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University.
