Albert W. Berg reading the paper

Above: Albert W. Berg some time in the 1940s reading the paper. His son Douglas suggests that perhaps he was relaxing in his "weekend" garden in Salisbury Mills, New York.

Douglas still loves the smell of cigar smoke. (Image donated by Douglas E. Berg, Ph.D. in remembrance of his father, Albert W. Berg.)
