Thanks to everyone that replied concerning my query versus Wm. Mohr and Wm.
Mohr Giant.  At least I know my memory isn't completely gone.  Can't
remember peoples names well enough to place them with faces.  But I can
still remember those first iris 'loves' of mine even though I haven't seen
them in years.

>The following is from the "Comprehensive Checklist of Arl and 
Arilbred Iris" compiled by Kay Nelson Keppel and Sharon McAllister, 
distributed by the Historic Iris Preservation Society.  The 
compilation is a list of cultivars based on AIS registrations and 
ASI records.  (Note - 'Tell' will be Tell Muhlestein):

WILLIAM MOHR GIANT AB (William Mohr, NR).  Sport of William Mohr 
selected by Lloyd Austin.  Lavender self with network of red-
violet.  Notes: Tell wrote that it "grows larger, more vigourous 
both in foliage and flowers" than William Mohr; Austin wrote 
that "produces an abundance of fertile pollen"; and some have 
speculated that it was an amphidiploid form although no chromosome 
counts of it have come to light. Ref: Tell's '61, p.42.
