Thank you so much Clarence both for the description and the info on how to read the older checklists.

That book I can locate : ) I am just up to the section on San Souci. I am enjoying it very much!

Betty provided the above description of QUAKER LADY from the 1939
Alphabetical Iris Check List. The "TB-M-S3L" code means it is a "TB" that
midseason ("M") and that it is blend bitone or bicolor "S3" of light ("L")
The following description of QUAKER LADY in my book (p.190) is based in part
on the Sheets 1928 catalogue listed in the Check List"

"'Quaker Ladyb is a blended bicolor in pastel shades of lavender, violet
yellow. It has smoky-lavender standards and mauve- to ageratum-violet falls that become bronze toward the edges. A yellow glow radiates from the center
of the flower, a glow enhanced by lush orange-yellow beards."

I hope this is helpful. Clarence Mahan
