| From Western Iris Gardens catalog, 1948: GOLDEN HIND (Chadburn, 1934). ML. 30" So many yellows to choose from, you say. This pace setter is deep, solid, and rich in yellow color value. Long continued popular demand constitutes an attribute. AM 1937. 40c.
| Golden Hind (Chadburn). Cleanest butter yellow of any, of good form—would like to see it with larger blooms. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 17.]
| Golden Hind's outstanding characteristic is its clarity of color. It is rather small in size with short horizontal falls and standards inclined to open. [Lila McCombs, “A Critical Evaluation of Older Irises”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 57.]
