Merritt Huntington was quite a character, and our orchid club was incredibly lucky to have Merritt as a strong supporter.  Personally, I will always remember Merritt around the year 2000 as the show table judge and commentator at the monthly meetings.  He was thoroughly knowledgeable, and a quick wit.  Visiting the Kensington Orchids greenhouses was always a memorable occasion.
