Neel, William. W.:
Duncan, British Columbia 1932-1934.Neel’s best known introduction was SHAH JEHAN which received acclaim in both Britain and America, as it was the first Canadian iris to receive an AM from the AIS in 1937, and an AM from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1938. Neel came to Canada from England to establish his nursery in Duncan B.C., which between 1926 and 1930 had half an acre of iris. He was associated with Eagle Heights Iris Garden (E.W.Neel) of Duncan, B.C.  and his son Lawrence became owner of the Orpington Nurseries in England - the same nursery from which his father had purchased his earliest iris.
