Excerpt from Trees, Fruits and Flowers of Minnesota, 1903, Vol. 31: Embracing the Transactions of the Minnesota State Horticultural Society From December 1, 1902, to December 1, 1903

At the age of sixteen the youth Clarence entered the University of. Minnesota, then a struggling school under the management of Prof. W. W. Folwell, whose kindly commendations and cheerful incentives to the higher ideals of living were one of the strong formative influences of this period of his life. After three years spent in the scientific course, the death of his step-father and the failing health of his mother seemed to require his presence, as the eldest child, at home.

In 1876 he moved to a farm one mile southeast of the city and began the occupation of a general farmer, paying some Special at tention to the raising of draft horses. His natural bent toward horticulture, however, kept him planting and improving his place, and for his own convenience he soon found himself with a small nursery of evergreens and ornamental trees. The sale of the surplus from this led him by degrees into the commercial nursery busi ness, which in the year 1900 had assumed a magnitude that made it seem necessary to transplant it to a soil better adapted to the purpose than the cold heavy clay upon which it was begun. In that year he therefore left the home of his first choice, endeared to all his family by the many ties of a long residence, and moved to a tract on the Opposite side of the city which a variety of soils seemed to mark as especially intended for nursery purposes, and where the finest old orchard in that section, and a situation of un usual sightliness, does much to make the family feel at home in their new location.
