Hi, Linda!  To answer part of your question, the Santa Fe Iris Society keeps a 
scrapbook (which over 15 years has grown to two very large three-ring binders) 
in which are included photos, show catalogs, newspaper articles of the club or 
members, and the like.  We also keep another box which holds all the 
checklists and any other books members want to donate.  The minutes are 
another matter, unfortunately.  Whether they get kept or not depends on who's 
the current secretary.  Right now that's me, and though I'm great at taking 
notes and getting them into the computer and typed, I'm really bad at keeping 
them in hard copy (they must be around here somewhere).  Just as well I'm not 
keeper of the scrapbook and library.

allergies say the junipers have begun blooming.

Does anyone on the list keep historical records for their local Iris 

Someone in the Maine Iris Society thought it would be a good idea to 
have all our records in one place and appointed me in charge of the 
project!  The Secretary has many years of meeting minutes and someone 
else has show records.  If I can get them to hand it all over - what 

They think this will be a massive project (groan), but I haven't 
figured out why - yet.  Get it all together - put it in one or two 
boxes and label the boxes, right?  I'm obvoiusly missing something.  
Clues anyone?

There is a Historical Committee listed in the AIS Bulletin. Anyone 
know what its function is and if it would be a resource?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be most welcome.  I would be 
especially interested in what records are kept by other local iris 

Many thanks,
