Archie Owen (Encinitas, California) can claim to have had a long association with irises and irisarians in Region 15 since the heyday of such persons as Carl Milliken, Lena Lothrop, Clarence White, and Eric Nies. During the early 1950s she served as that region's RVP, and southern California convention visitors in 1956 and in 1975 toured the Owen garden.¹
