The Washington (DC) Daffodil Society existed before the ADS. It was the Washington Daffodil Society which invited all interested daffodil growers to their Third Annual Daffodil Institute in 1954 to discuss the formation of a national daffodil society. It was at that meeting that the ADS was formed. The WDS 1955 Yearbook was sent to all ADS members at that time. In the years 1956-1964, the ADS published annual yearbooks. The complete collection is available on a DVD at the ADS webstore.
The first file listed below is an index of all the articles in the yearbooks, so that you can then go to the appropriate yearbook to read the article. The size of the file is indicated for your convenience. All files are searchable.
