My short article for Bee World, published by the International Bee Research Association, is now in print. Bee World is the bee science journal founded by my Egyptian grandfather, A.Z. Abushady, in 1919 when he was living in the English countryside outside Oxford. Bee World is still published, and last year I was invited by editor emeritus Richard Jones to offer its readership some Bee World history:
Joy Garnett: “Blazing the Trail: A.Z. Abushady and The Apis Club,” Bee World, Vol.91, no.3 (Sept 2014), International Bee Research Association (IBRA), Cardiff, Wales.
