References:

From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1937: "Yes, it's here ~ a truly gigantic flower of bright, clear, rich yellow. Tall stems, not a trace of Dykes blood in its parentage, hardiness beyond question. Treasure Island is nearest to ideal of any of the new yellows we have seen, because there is neither the tell-tale purple flecking which eventually crops out in those of the Dykes strain, nor the ofttimes tender constitution accompanying them. Still other fine new golden hued introductions possess a suffusion of olive on the haft, but not so this one. The illustration on the opposite page is an exact reproduction in every detail except size, which is reduced to fit the page."
From Tell's Iris Garden catalog, 1948: TREASURE ISLAND (Kleinsorge 1937).(Cream Sdlg: Purissima x Dolly Madison) x Jean Cayeux). Clean yellow with light area in falls. Parent of Old Parchment, Copper Cascade and Grand Canyon. A.M. 1945. 50c .
 
From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens, 1947: A large striking yellow, with a white flush in the center of the falls.
