Thank you for posting these extremely interesting quotes from Charles Piper
Smith. They say a lot about the state of the art at that time. I too would
be very interested in seeing "Geranium Records" if anyone knows where it
could be found.
Charles Piper Smith was a botanist who published significant works on
lupines, especially those of the Pacific States. The UC library catalogue
gives his dates as 1877-1955, and somewhere I got the idea that geraniums
was an interest he took up after his retirement. These dates would make it
pretty unlikely that Mrs. Harvey Smith was his mother -- but there's one
more name to research!

While reading these back issues of GATW, I have found an interesting
short article on cactus flowered hortorums by Charles Piper Smith in
Saratoga, California, in Volume III, Number 1. No date and I should go
upstairs and see where it is in the stream of time.
:What we knew about the Cactus-Flowered Geraniums in 1941 is recorded on
page 5 of our Geranium Records, namely: "Only the common
slender-petaled red variety has yet been seen by us." [...]
