Walter Smith kept Louise's 'Fragrance Notes' in their computer, a Tandy 286
with about 80 megs of hard drive. FN were too large to keep in one WP file,
he had it broken at several spots. They kept a master hard edition and
would zerox and sell copies ($50.00--advertised in a BAIS in the early
'90s). The document was copyrighted to Louise and Walter Smith.
Their son, Steven C. Smith, has (had?) Walter's computer and has been in
touch with HIPS officials and Clarence Mahan regarding disposal of Walter
and Louise's extensive iris document holdings. Clarence may have more info
Incidentally, Steven Smith was front page news in the 'Richmond Times
Dispatch' Friday, November 26th 1996 [Archived online in Gateway Virginia]
in reference to a proclamation by a Williamsburg-based organization called
'Henricus Colledge (1619) Inc.' The subject was Christian Heritage Week and
rated 31 column-inches plus color pic and call-outs!
