[From the American Rose Annual 1945, pp. 226:] Charles Mallerin, Varces, Isere, France.

[From The Makers of Heavenly Roses, p. 123: His profession had been as an engineer, in central heating, when he could, he retired to his property in Varce to breed roses...] In 1929, Charles Mallerin decided to invite French rose growers to see his new roses, especially a yellow Hybrid Tea... The yellow rose proved a success in France and America under the name 'Mrs. Pierre S. du Pont'...

[From Lyon-Rose, by Patrick Eberhard, 2007, p. 62:] Charles Mallerin était un homme de paradoxes: ingénieur et artiste, passionné et parfois dépressif, fantasque mais perfectionniste. Perfectionniste jusque dans le mort: c'est de ses mains qu'il fabriqua la cartouche avec laquelle il se suicida. A 82 ans.
