Carl Vermeulen ’61

Carl Vermeulen ’61 and his students at Paul
D. Camp Community College in Virginia
presented their peer-reviewed work at the annual
meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, of the American
Society for Microbiology, showing that nodes in
all categories of vascular plants are instrumental
in inhibiting the upward spread of bacterial
diseases. This is a small part of a program in
which the vascular systems of plants are being
revisited with modern methods with an eye
toward preparation for agriculture on Mars.
