Re: HIST:Black list


John I Jones wrote:

....
In 1931 the AIS issued a "Discard List" which I thought was nicknamed the "Black List" but I could be wrong.


Can anyone amplify on this?

In the January 1925 issue R. S. Sturtevant wrote an article titled "Official Standards of Recommendation" in which he wrote:*

Official White List*. This list is composed of both standard varieties and novelties that have proved generally reliable under normal cultural conditions and that are considered worthy of general planting as representative of the entire range of iris color. At present this list includes only Tall Bearded varieties. This is based largely upon the Symposium and recommends to the small grower representative and reliable varieties of proved merit.

*Official Black Li**st*. Varieties of markedly inferior quality, not worthy of further propagation and dissemination.
