Oops - another round of bad proof reading - Carless love is really called Careless Love.

The ones in quotes ("") are study names.

Actually, Margo Koster was a sport of Dick Koster. I've seen revert.

Queen Elizabeth has a number of sports:

Yellow Queen Elizabeth
Sebastian Schultheis (almost red)
Delta Queen (more petals, tendency to spot)
Weisse Queen Elizabeth (white)

Lafayette (Joseph Guy) also did several:
Pink Lafayette
Frau Astrid Spath (pink)
Dagmar Spath (white)
Zuknuft (deep red)
Fuchsine Guy (purple -- I haven't seen this one)
