There is Mrs. Arno Nehrling and Dr. T.L. Mead and Edith
Mead. Possibly more. Also the name Joyner appears. Mrs. F. M. Joyner and
Postman Joyner, maybe named by Mead or Nehrling.

Hello,

Does anybody know a site (database, document) where I could find when and by who various aroid cultivars were registered and introduced?

Best,

Marek

I was able to find this also

Dr. Nehrling produced many
varieties. His ‘John Peed’ and ‘Fannie Munson’ varieties
are still popular and commercially produced.

and......

naturalist David Fairchild was a colleague and admirer .... so you might be able to get more names from Fairchild Botanic Garden, if you drop them an e-mail.

Good luck with your hunt! Merry Christmas to everyone!

Dear Marek,

The starting place is aroid-l section on
cultivars, although because of lack of response by breeders and other members
to my requests to join in the registration process, only a few will have all
the information that you require.

Write to me ( here or off site ( href="mailto:derekburch@hotmail.com">derekburch@hotmail.com) if you have
specific cultivars in mind, and I will try to help. Derek
