Mr. Root was a beekeeper who wrote extensive books called, "Gleanings in Bee Culture." I learned of Mr. Root from my dad who was an avid beekeeper many years ago. The following quote is from The Root Candles Website by Amos Ives Root:
"A.I. was a visionary with faith in others who dared to dream. A friend of the Wright Brothers, he published the first account of their flight (found today in the Smithsonian Institute) when few others believed what they had done. He was a humanitarian lauded by 11 year old Helen Keller for his kindness. "
