Pages of History: Fungus growth found at point a real specimen

From the pages of the Crescent City American, May 1928.

Game Warden Harry S. Prescott and A.H. Kramer found a fungi growth in the swamps north of Point St. George today.

The growth, or Burl, weighs about 30 pounds and measures 14 by 26 inches. This growth is called “Conk” and is rarely found. Mr. Prescott values it greatly as it will add to his collection of “different things,” as he terms it.

Mr. Prescott’s home is a real den, with freak horns, heads and hide rugs and skins. In his work, he is able to gather many trophies of wildlife and anyone interested in such lore would learn much from this collection.
