Alabama Bonsai Society History: Six degrees of separation, John Naka

My wife mentioned that our daughter’s good friend has a bonsai connection in her family. Turns out, her friend’s grandfather purchased and donated a bunch of bonsai trees in honor of his mother. Recently, I started digitizing our club’s records, and found a few records showing some of the donated trees:

A few of those trees came from John Naka himself:

Via Brussel’s, of course!

Here is a shot from around 1983, when Mr. Naka visited the Alabama Bonsai Society, and the trident forest he created 8 years earlier:
