But, just maybe, his favorite name might have been, "The Heather King."<br><br>"He was the Heather King of Cape Cod," said Roberta Clark of the Barnstable County Cooperative Extension, where Harry Bowen volunteered and shared his love for the low-growing heather plant and its blooms.<br><br>"He learned about Heather probably 40 to 50 years ago," she said. "He propagated them for over 35 years, and many of the heather beds on the Cape came from Harry."<br> Mon, 25 Mar 2013 13:22:13 +0000 Sean Corcoran 7790 at http://capeandislands.org Harry Bowen, the Heather King of Cape Cod Sarah Rosenberg, an advocate for children and lover of music http://capeandislands.org/post/sarah-rosenberg-advocate-children-and-lover-music-1 <p>Maybe lots of people know there are three verses to the Happy Birthday song.

As a student in New York City, Dan Rosenberg says his mother would study lyric sheets as she road the subway from Washington Heights to Brooklyn College.
