TB-HIST: Don't Cry for Me, ARGENTINA

From: "Jeff and Carolyn Walters" <cwalters@digitalpla.net>


Linda Mann and I have become engaged in a discussion of maternal lines,
both on and off list, with WHOLE CLOTH as a point of departure. The
maternal line of WC (pod parent to pod parent, etc.) runs from CAHOKIA
(Faught, '48), through a Faught sdlg to PURISSIMA (Mohr-Mitchell, '27) to
ARGENTINA (Mohr, '23) - and at this point the thread begins to fray. The
1939 Checklist records the parentage of ARGENTINA as "CATERINA X I.
mesopotamica", but in The World of Irises ARGENTINA is firmly identified as
an offspring of KASHMIR WHITE. Does anyone have any light they can shed on
the actual pedigree of ARGENTINA?

This question may be of more than passing interest, as due to the
heavy use of both PURISSIMA and its daughter SNOW FLURRYas pod parents, we
are dealing with what is almost undoubtedly the most common maternal line
in TB
iris, e.g. THORNBIRD, VANITY, and VICTORIA FALLS all share this same
maternal line.
