DR. ASHWORTH joined the staff of the Royal Horticultural Society at Wisley Laboratory in the summer of 1935 as assistant to the mycologist. Before this her work had been concerned with pure research on various rust fungi, but she quickly adapted herself to the practical problems of horticultural plant diseases, and besides continuing valuable studies on various fungus parasites, notably the Antirrhinum rust fungus, Puccinia Antirrhini, rendered valuable assistance in the experiments on methods of control of diseases in certain ornamental and crop plants.
