The following info is from the 1959 AIS Checklist:

ECHO VALLEY (Muhlestein, introducer for Mrs. S. D. Kerr, originator; R.
1952) 36" EM   TB-onco. Reblooms in fall. Plicata, white marked purple.
Ormohr X Wabash. Tell 1952.

Tell Muhlestein was the longtime "Dean" of Utah hybridizers; I don't know
anything concerning Mrs. S. D. Kerr, but Tell would introduce worthwhile
iris from many different "amateur" hybridizers. As a cross between a "Mohr"
iris and a TB, I imagine Echo Valley would be classified as a TB by modern
