Re: Dr. E. M. Mills (a likely reference not currently posted on HMF)

"Rose-Breeding Notes for 1918," by Dr. Walter Van Fleet, 1919 ARA, p. 31 - "The first R. hugonis seedling containing Hybrid Tea blood has bloomed for three seasons and is interesting, if not beautiful. The pollen parent was most likely Radiance, and the large, double, pinkish yellow flowers afford strong resemblance to that excellent variety in form and fragrance. The plant is healthy, hardy, and has grown over four feet in height. It fruits sparingly and shows signs of a fair increase by suckers."
