Ron Hoham, professor of biology emeritus, ties up lilies
in his flowerbeds at his home in Hamilton. Having cultivated his garden for
more than three decades, he says that he can't even begin to figure how much
time he spends with the plants throughout the course of a summer. Hoham retired
this year (he had taught at Colgate since 1971) but still maintains an office
and continues his research.
The summer months in Hamilton are a time
to relish. A chance to catch up on work -- both scholarly and domestic -- and
to find time for a little play. Then there are those who blend them together.
