Hybridizer William Miles

Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada

Ontario is particularly fortunate in having Mr. William Miles, now of Ingersoll, and Mr. L. W. Cousins of London[Ontario], whose Great Lakes has been the standard of excellence for years, and who modestly admits that a couple of his new iris have merit. One is June Glamour, and there is a very sound white. Mr. Miles is one of the famous British hybridists who worked so successfully with the late Rev. W. R. Dykes. He has a wealth of knowledge and great enthusiasm for his hobby. [Mrs. Harry Bickle, (Ontario), “Iris Interest Grows in Canada”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 50.]
