Media, Pennsylvania, USA.
A Philadelphian, he resided during his later years near Media where he raised many seedlings of Irises and Peonies. President, Scott Paper Company, he helped to organize the A.I.S. and was its Treasurer at the time of his death. A fine arboretum has been established in his memory at Swarthmore, PA. His loveliest Iris is perhaps ROSE VALLEY, though STEEPWAY caused quite a sensation in its time.
