Hybridizer E. A. Emery (1892-1966)

Sioux City, Iowa, USA

E. A. EMERY - "Ernie" Emery had been a longtime member of AIS. He became a garden judge in 1950, and was elevated to the position of senior judge in 1965. He did extensive hybridizing in irises, and his last releases were MONKSHOOD, SILVER PALOMINO, MISTY ORCHID, VALETTA, SUZANNE MINNICK and EVELYN MINNICK. One of his goals was to produce a pink amoena. He and his wife, Alma, have one of the loveliest gardens in Region 21, and it has been a highlight of many spring tours. [A.I.S. Bulletin #182, July 1966] LARRY L. HARDER
