In Roger Way’s obituary, it mentions that he introduced 16 apple cultivars, often with colleagues.
I thought it would be easy to track them down, but I haven’t seen them listed in one place. He started developing cultivars as early as 1949 and was a professor at Cornell from 1953 to 1983. He kept working at Cornell after he retired well into the 1990s.
These are the cultivars I’m pretty sure he is credited for or shares credit for. Corrections and additions would be welcome.
Bean and Lovell (but not Conrad, since it had already been used) were apple cultivars introduced by Cornell in the 1970s and named after the astronauts who took apple seeds into outer space.
Autumn Crisp was developed while he was at Cornell, but it was not released until long after he retired for good, and I think Susan Brown gets the credit.
I would also welcome comments on the varieties. We grow Jonagold and Autumn Crisp, and they both consistently finish high on taste tests we hold in the fall. We also grow Liberty, and some years it is as good as Macoun, but other years but so-so.
