I did a lot of comparing and my final guess is "Indian Chief" as well. 
  The thing that finally flipped me over to it (from Dauntless)  was 
the fine veining on the crests of the falls.  That only seems present 
in Indian Chief and my NOID.  The late mention of Indian Chief as an 
early bloomer threw me for a bit - He was my second-last-man-standing!!!

All of the Iris I grow were stressed in some way or another this year. 
  We had a very cold, dry, windy winter, (very little snow) and then 
we had several days of frost at the end of May.  After a fairly wet 
spring it dried out too much, and warmed up rapidly.  The frost really 
did a number on those buds already set.

Then to add insult to injury, those #!>^%$ goldfinches decided that 
Iris buds were good salad fodder and took to shredding them before 
they opened . . . <sigh>

To be legal, I'm including a shot of my last-man-standing "Wild Thing" 
whose bud grew straight DOWN and opened that way - talk about stress!
