Correction needed in the Profile: The Barbier whose rose collection was acquired by Louis Noisette, and who was a respected surgeon at the military hospital at Val-de-Grâce ca. 1790-1825, had nothing to do with the Barbiers of Orléans.

"Barbier Frères et Compagnie in Orleans were rosarians. The company was founded in 1900 and closed sometime in 1933. During those years, the brothers introduced 67 hybrid roses; many were crosses between hybrid teas and Rosa wichuraiana descendants. The brothers derived bushes with the best traits of both."
