    I am looking for information on Mrs. Harvey Smith who hybridized
some of the cactus-flowered zonals.  She was from the San Francisco Bay
Area and some of hers are 'Noel,' 'Morning Star,' 'Southern Cross.'
 Charles Piper Smith wrote a little article about the cactus flowered in
Geraniums Around the World, Vol. III, Number 1, on pages 9 and 14.  She
introduced her plants through the nursery of William Schmidt in Palo Alto.
    Have not found much at all about her in back issues of GATW or in
books.  'Morning Star' is such a beauty.  Would love to know more about her.

    And, am still looking for information on Howard Kerrigan who
hybridized many regals, 3 dwarf zonals that I know of, and have found
that he hybridized many evergreen azaleas, rhododendrons, and roses.  He
was also from the Bay Area.  Any leads would be so appreciated no matter
how small.
