Walta, do you know for a fact that the iris Peabody College, now of 
Vanderbilt University in Nashville gives/gave away is I. germanica? I've been 
working with a fellow whose mother graduated in the 'thirties and he wants to 
get her the iris that grew on the campus, but the only name he had for it 
clearly dated from the sixties. I've been trying to find out what iris grew 
on the campus in the thirties, if indeed it was a named one. Greg has some 
inquiries out for me among the garden club women and I have done everything 
possible including asking the alumni affairs office there, who ignored my 
most eloquent and groveling e-request for information. To date we are at a 
standstill despite my efforts, Mike's, and Greg's. Can you--or anyone else 
listening-- confirm we are talking about I. germanica?
