BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

George "Doc" Abraham (Cornell Class of 1939) and Katherine "Katy" Mehlenbacher Abraham (Cornell Class of 1943) married on July 4, 1942, just before Doc shipped out with Task Force 5889, one of the U.S. Army's first integrated units, to safeguard Liberia's rubber plantations during World War II. Doc's parents were Lebanese immigrants. Katy dropped out of Cornell to work as a munitions inspector. She finished her degree after raising their two children, Leanna and Darryl, and actually graduated from Cornell in 1969. Katy and Doc operated a commercial greenhouse and florist shop, offered landscape architectural services, published nine books on gardening, and worked to extend the reach of their "Green Thumb" garden column. Doc also wrote "The belles of Shangri-La: and other stories of sex, snakes, and survival from World War II," published in 2000. Doc died on January 27, 2005 and Katy on May 25, 2005.
