Abstract/Contents:"In line with our policy to name bentgrasses as soon as they have been tested and proven, and are in commercial production, the name COLLINS BENT has been assigned to C-27. This grass was selected at the Washington Golf and Country Club, Arlington, Virginia, in 1937, but due to the preoccupied uses of names associated with this club, it has been decided to name the grass in commemoration of the late William "Billy" Collins and his fine work at Arlington. It was through his untiring efforts and supervision that the Gardens were immaculately maintained. This memorial will serve as a national recognition of his work."
