Oops, well, guess I didn't know that.  I was thinking primarily of Elizabeth
Nesmith,  from Lowell, Mass.  Rick Tasco has already mentioned a bit about
her.  She was a charter member of AIS, BTW. 

Other prominent names and gardens of the period were primarily in Mass., and
Conn., at least the ones I was thinking of.  

But NH did boast 2 AIS iris test gardens; one at Durham, U. of NH,
established in 1927, and one at Keene, Keene Normal School, est. 1929.   :-)
