It  eludes me why such a tough little thing didn't seem to be growing in 
any  historic collections that I knew, except for Presby.
Well, to quote your own good self, that is a question only you can answer. 
As I said, it was documented by HIPS in the mid-1990s as being  in no fewer 
than two HIPS collections, and may, in fact, have  been in more. I will add 
that least one of those collectors is in  Virginia, and, to my certain 
knowledge, did claim, in  1996, to grow the iris. 
So, 'Dr. Bernice' (Hooper, 1867), has apparently circulated at  different 
times from at least two origins, unless the earlier  circulation also started 
at Presby. 
Thank you, again.
