THANK YOU, Jeff, for this information! I am trying to learn about the
hybridizers as well as the irises, and had absolutely no information on
him (or whether he WAS a him!). When did he die, and what were some of
his other irises?
I have just ordered the 1959 and 1969 Check Lists (with the others to be
ordered in February and March), so I expect I'll find out about some of
the other hybridizers who worked after the '30s and '40s (which check
lists I DO have).
