Hybridizer Mabel and Mildred (Mrs. John) Harrell

Aurora, Illinois, USA

Another ardent iris hybridizer is Mrs. Mildred Harrell, of Aurora, Illinois, with many interesting seedlings. She is breeding for different ones; the day I was there she had made over two hundred crosses and she doubled that by the end of the season. Something interesting will come from her crosses someday. A lot of fine bitones and bicolors still remain to be created. [Richard Goodman, (Illinois), “Iris Ramblings in 1948”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 42.]
