Hybridizer Stedman Buttrick (1901-1969)

Concord, Massachusetts, USA

Stedman Buttrick has gone from among us, but he has left to us a trail of rich memories. His estate, overlooking historically hallowed ground, and often photographed and written about in flower and other magazines and in color catalogues, was a mecca for iris and hemerocallis growers. None who attended the 1953 convention ever will forget the buffet luncheon served on the spacious and pleasant setting of the Buttrick estate. The national government now has this estate as a memorial of America's foundling days, for it was over this land that the Minutemen marched to defend Concord Bridge. Only this last year Mr. Buttrick's CUP RACE had tied for the Franklin Cook Memorial Cup at the Berkeley meeting. He was a member of the Board of Directors of AIS from the middle of 1953 to the end of 1956. [AIS Bulletin, No. 193(April 1969)]
