The University Archives recently received this photo of Professor M. B. Cummings and his horticulture class in the fall of 1930. Cummings taught at UVM from 1909-1944 and conducted experiments in breeding apple varieties. The students standing in front of fruit trees are equipped with saws and loppers, perhaps for lessons in tree maintenance. #uvm #uvmlibraries #uvmcals #instauvm #librariesofinstagram
