I think this entry should be merged with Stephen F. Hamblin of Lexington, Mass.

Percy Wright (The American Rose Magazine 5(7): 140-141. 1944) mentioned "Stephen F. Hamblin, of Lexington, Mass." as the breeder of Harison's Orange, Harison's Lemon, and Harison's Profuse.

Stephen F. Hamblin, Lexington, Massachusetts, USA

Do you know where he did the breeding?

I have several of his articles on my web page, dating from 1930 through 1960. All have him living in Lexington, Mass. In the 1940s he identified himself as Prof. Stephen F. Hamblin, which suggests that he was attached to a university there.

A quick google search turned up:
Prof. Stephen F. Hamblin of the School of Landscape Architecture, Harvard University. That was in 1937.

'Harison's Lemon' and 'Harison's Salmon' both carry a date of 1929 - fairly close to your records of 1930.

ADMIN - when you complete that merge (I had a minor problem there), perhaps make Stephen F. Hamblin as living in Lexington, Massachusetts.

Are Stephen F Hamblin of Lexington and Stephen Hamblin of Alberta the same person? My listing of Canadian Hybrids only lists Harrison's Profuse (1936) as introduced by Percy Wright of Northern Alberta. Percy Wright himself used Harrison's Yellow in his Hybrids.

The Harvard Crimson (October 29, 1929)
President's Statement Makes Plain Cause of Shift--Garden Has Long and Varied History
The Garden, which is situated at the corner of Garden and Linnaean Streets, Cambridge, was established in 1807 by a number of public-spirited gentlemen who endowed a professorship of Natural History. The seven acres which form the present Garden were laid out in 1807 by Professor William Daudrige Peck, with the formal lines of smaller Loudon establishments being used as a model. After the death of Professor Peck the Garden passed under the charge of Thomas Nuttall as Curator, and later of Thaddeus William Harris, the funds having dwindled so that it was no longer possible to assign the income to a full professorship. About 1842 the income of a newly established professorship, endowed by Joshua Fisher 1766, became available, and to this new chair Dr. Asa Gray was invited. The most recent change came in 1923, when Assistant Professor S. F. Hamblin was made director.

I have signed in, signed out, paid for premium membership, received my user name, e-mail, password. Done, all done. I did this so that I could access a nursery in CA, Otto's. Neither HelpMeFind nor Otto's has any information and I cannot sign in and can, therefore, not check on the availability of flowers.

Could you please assist me with this.

Thank you. Marguerite Murphy

Sorry for the delay Marguerite.

Can you please contact the "support" department with the details of you HMF membership. These types of issues are most always the result of having multiple member accounts. The support department will be have to address this out and combine multiple accounts as necessary.
