HIST: Color Codes

From: Sharon McAllister <73372.1745@compuserve.com>

Message text written by Mike Lowe:
I have been pushing a couple hundred slides around on a light table for the
past month, trying to achieve a consistent and coherent 'ILLUSTRATED  GUIDE

I believe that half the iris in the 39 and 49 C.L.s were coded using the
'dart method' for assigning color designations.

My own theory is that those coded in the 30s were referenced to some flower
of similar appearance that had appeared in the '29 CL and those coded in
the 40s were compared to ones that appeared in the '39 CL.  What I've found
most interesting is the amount of variation WITHIN a single code.  Perhaps
that isn't terribly far from your "dart theory"....
