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). 

To Spring!
