Chet Tompkins catalog.

I'm not Linda, but I did get a Tompkins catalog this year.  Chet Tompkins
is 83, I think, still going strong with the help of his sons, but according
to the catalog note will be moving soon to the Washington DC area.

Why has there been so little recognition of Chet Tompkins?  His irises are
excellent but it has been years since one has seen them on the awards
lists--or so it seems to me.

Among historics, his old EBONY ECHO has long been a favorite of mine.
