Until 1908, Dr. Macoun (1869-1933) was Dominion Horticulturalist for Canada working from the Dominion Experimental Farm since its creation in 1886. During his years on the farm he raised and evaluated an exceeding large number of perennials and reported his work in many publications. (CIS-N v35n2p44) A list of his iris growing at the Central Experimental Farm was published in Bulletin 2nd Ser.5: 1908. As a 50 anniversary project in 1936, the Macoun Memorial Garden was created on the th site of his former home at the Farm. (CIS-N v35n2p44) Macoun was credited in AIS Check Lists as working with other irisarians in collecting and researching species iris. (Researched by Don McQueen)
