Hybridizer Theda M. Clark (1921-1967)

Woodward, Oklahoma, USA

Theda Clark, an accredited judge and member of AIS for twenty years, died on June 30. She was active in all phases of growing and showing irises, hybridizing and judging, and all levels of organization work. A product of her hybridizing efforts, a lovely tall bearded white iris, will be in the Oklahoma City Test Garden next bloom season. Her nephew, Hooker Nichols, who gardened with Theda most of his thirteen years, will continue to grow the fine irises in her garden and carryon for her in other iris activities. [AIS Bulletin, No. 188(January 1968)]
