Hybridizer Edwin Reid Fox (1892-1975)
Memphis, Tennessee, USA
From The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 224(Winter 1977)
: Eddie, as he was affectionately called by his many friends, was a member of the American Iris Society for more than forty years. He hybridized FOXFIRE, one of the great yellows of the early fifties, which won the Franklin Cook Memorial Cup in 1957, also FOXGRAPES and FOXCHARM. Saturday afternoons through the year were always open house at the Foxes, and we who were privileged to know him will not soon forget the hospitality of Eddie and his gracious wife, Mary Martha[1906-1979], who now resides with her daughter in Indiana. —QUAY BAUMAN
