Obituary - William H. Henderson, Fresno, California
« on: Sunday 05 August 18 05:46 BST (UK) »
I am looking for an obituary of William H. [probably Henry] Henderson.  He was born 14 August 1905 in Fresno and died there on 1 June 1972.  He gained some renown as a gardener for Luther Burbank and carried on Burbank's work after his death.

Oh, you know, the usual.  Who his wife was and his children.  How he died.  Where he was buried.  Statements from his friends about what a wonderful guy he was and such a great credit to the community.  That sort of thing.

I haven't found his obit, but I have found a number of articles on him that are pretty detailed. I sent you a PM.
