I believe I bought from Edgar Kline when he was gradually retiring  
during the 1980s, as there was a younger person at the nursery that I  
think was going to take over. I'm not sure of the year, but it was  
after CITES was operating, because I remember Mr. Kline filled a form  
out for the cyclamen I bought, and apologized that he had to charge me  
for doing it, though he wouldn't get the money.

I don't know when he began selling plants.  There are letters to him  
and other nurseries in the archives at the University of Oregon from  
two landscape architects who worked from 1929 to 1970.   Unfortunately  
the pdf report does not date the letter to Edgar L. Kline Nursery, so  
someone would need to look in Box 6, Folder 7.

Salem, Oregon in 1929.
Working out of their home on Mission Street, Elizabeth Lord and Edith

partnership lasted forty years,
until they retired.
