George Imirie's PINK PAGES

Monthly Index

George W. Imirie Jr. was a lifelong beekeeper and founder of the Montgomery County (MD) Beekeepers Association. Over a decade or more, George wrote and published detailed articles about beekeeping which he titled "Pink Pages." These articles contain broad and deep wisdom about bees and beekeeping, along with George's rather strong opinions and spicy rhetoric. I believe this is the most complete archive of Pink Pages on the internet. Material was sourced from original Pink Pages scans, George's Pink Pages website, and elsewhere on the internet. In addition to the articles, I have compiled multiple indexes facilitating easy access to George's wealth of beekeeping knowledge. I hope you enjoy this archive. Please see the About This Project page for additional information.
