[From A Heritage of Old Roses, by Hazel Le Rougetel, p. 25] When he was horticulturist [at the Huntington Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens], John C. Macgregor IV assembled a comprehensive collection of roses (more than 1,600) and contributed much valuable work on identification and classification of older varieties. His successor is Clair Martin III... the Botanical Library there is a good place to do research -- among the references there are early catalogues of Prince, Hovey and others... The Huntington rose garden arrangement is historical, the oldest being in the Herb and Shakespeare Gardens.
