Two AARS Winners recorded as the sole production of Ollie Weeks in Modern Rose 8 are co-inventions of him and me as recorded by the Patent Office. These are PERFUME DELIGHT and ARIZONA – both Hybrid Teas. (By agreement I had no financial interest in either these two or GYPSY an AARS Winner for the Introduction Year 1973 ) The Patent Office has certain guidelines that qualify invention. These include (1) the making of a cross or the ordering or directing that the cross be made, and (2) the propagation of or the ordering or directing that a selection be propagated. As these two activities were a joint effort inevitably several generations of introductions require a statement of co-invention after the retirement of one of the co-inventors, (From five to ten years normally elapse after pollination to the actual marketing of a rose). This sort of circumstance arose in the carry-overs from Dr. Lammerts to me, from the carry-overs from me to Dr. David Armstrong, from me to Ollie Weeks, from Dr. Armstrong to me, and from me to Jack Christensen. All were registered with the American Rose Society with the same credits that applied to the invention except for PERFUME DELIGHT, ARIZONA and HONEY BUN where only one of the co-inventors were named in Modern Roses. I am not faulting the editors of Modern Roses.
