The orchid collection at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden was seriously under-appreciated by most visitors to that wonderful institution, until suddenly there was a news article. Remember that amazing and ENORMOUS Grammatophyllum scriptum (biggest orchid in the world!) that flowered there a few years ago, and made all the local papers? Well, David Horak, the curator, had plenty to do with that! An impressive store of knowledge of a wide, diverse range of orchids is just part of his job. But those of us in GNYOS are fortunate to know Dave better than that, not just because he frequently has been one of the judges of our Show Table. Dave is an accredited judge of the American Orchid Society, and past Chair of the AOS Conservation Committee. He served as the President of the Greater New York Orchid Society from
2000–2007 and as the show chair of the New York International Orchid Show at Rockefeller Center during those same years.
