A Man of Salt and Trees: The Life of Joy Morton by James Ballowe
“This biography is a must read if you are a member or visitor to the Morton Aboretum. If you are neither, it will motivate you to visit this internationally acclaimed outdoor museum of woody plants. We are all familiar with the picture of the little girl holding the umbrella in the crook of her right arm and salt pouring from the Morton Salt container in her left arm and the slogan popular since 1914, “When it rains, it pours.” Morton Aboretum stands today as a natural expression of a desire Jay Morton had from childhood when he learned from his father, the founder of Arbor Day and his mother, a dedicated gardener, that a necessary complement to a good life is the cultivation and preservation of the environment. ”
