 Whitfield Jack Jr.'s grandfather, Dr. Paul King Rand, (far right) with Francois Mignon (far left) in Alexandria, Louisiana. In the center are Dr. Rand's brother and sister, Harry and Lucille. Dr. Rand, like Cammie Henry, was an avid gardener. He was a pioneer in the accelerated propagation of camellias by grafting rather than by the extremely slow methods of seeding and by rooting cuttings. He was responsible for many of the beautiful camellias that grew at Melrose.
