Annotation from Turfgrass History and Literature: Lawns, Sports, and Golf, by James B Beard, Harriet J. Beard and James C Beard:"This revision contains an update on turfgrasses and cultivars plus the advances in weed, disease, and insect control in North America. The golf course architecture chapter was deleted. Members of the Editorial Board were William H. Bengeyfield, William C. Chapin, Joseph C. Dey Jr., Marvin H Ferguson, Charles K. Hallowell, and Alexander M. Radko. The book was sponsored by the United States Golf Association, as were an earlier book by Drs. C.V. Piper and Russell Oakley (1917) and later books by Dr. Jim Beard (1982 and 2002)." p. 294
Beard Section Heading:Bibliography of books/monographs on turfgrass culture
Annotation from
Golf Course Design,
by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"A publication of the USGA with contributions from superintendents. A final section in the First Edition, authored by Robert Bruce Harris, ASGCA, and Robert Trent Jones, ASGCA, is specific to course design. Musser's work was the first book on turfgrass science published in America following World War II and is a landmark. Written as a general text, it nevertheless provides the information that turfgrass managers seek." p. 121
