From Sass catalog, 1937: GOLDEN BOW (H. P. Sass)-Large flowered chrome yellow intermediate. Rather long flowers on tall stems. $1.50
1935 April AIS Bulletin Pg. 67. "To take the yellows in the order of their yellowness, we must begin with the richest and finest yellow yet shown in any iris I have ever sighted, Hans Sass' intermediate, Golden Bow. I had not believed that a more brilliant yellow was possible or likely in an iris than that of Crysoro but Golden Bow is richer and more glowing and with a remarkable heavy, velvety substance. A slight undertone of brown was detected by some observers which they believed gave it its richness of color. This is a stunning bit of color."
1937 April AIS Bulletin Pg. 41 (Alice Whiting notes circa early May 1937) "GOLDEN BOW (R. p~ Sass '35)-Striking a~d effective with Gentius. Excellent form with a smooth velvety finish (Ia.).

1937 Sept AIS Bulletin Pg. 6 When we returned home we found the iris season just opening. Gentius, Cosette and Golden Bow made a beautiful early group,

1938 April AIS Bulletin Pg. 70 (Gersdorff notes)"Golden Bow, a deep yellow extra early intermediate, about the best of the deep yellows in this type;"
David Ferguson in the Species e-mail group, on 8/3/2017 noted: "As a further aside, 'Golden Bow' is very like I. x albicans (has anyone noticed this?), but it is yellow. Is there any more detailed record of the parentage than what shows in the AIS registry?. I have hoped that more detailed records are recorded somewhere by the Sass family for their crosses? If species were used to create 'Golden Bow', it ?might? shed some light on the original parentage of I. x albicans. As a group, I. x albicans, 'Madonna', 'Kochii', and 'Golden Bow' stand out from everything else I've ever grown. Plus, they look good planted together (at least the three I have do)."
