Abstract: The Conard-Pyle Company of West Grove, Pennsylvania was a large horticultural enterprise that specialized in the cultivation and hybridization of roses. It was founded in 1897, and established a large magazine-based advertizing campaign and mail order business. According to a Company history, Conard-Pyle can take credit for several "firsts" in commercial horticulture in the United States, particularly in the development of new varieties of roses. The Company is best known for its famed Star Roses, most notably the world-famous Peace Rose. The Peace Rose was "provided to delegates from around the world as they met in San Francisco on April 25, 1945, to form the United Nations" (Thomas p.1). The Conard-Pyle Company records contain material relating to the business activities of an influential and successful nursery company, created over a period of just over one hundred years. The papers chronicle Conard-Pyle's evolution from a small-scale retail business to an influential wholesaler, as well as the financial, legal, and marketing concerns of a major nursery company. The collection provides a unique look at the activities of a large-scale nursery company, providing insight into the processes of plant breeding, patenting, marketing and sales. In addition, the collection serves as a window to the nursery industry as a whole, due to significant correspondence with other nurseries and material relating to professional organizations and societies within the nursery community.

Historical note

The Conard-Pyle Company of West Grove, Pennsylvania was a large horticultural enterprise that specialized in the cultivation and hybridization of roses. It was founded in 1897, and established a large magazine-based advertizing campaign and mail order business. According to a Company history, Conard-Pyle can take credit for several "firsts" in commercial horticulture in the United States, particularly in the development of new varieties of roses. The Company is best known for its famed Star Roses, most notably the world-famous Peace Rose. The Peace Rose was "provided to delegates from around the world as they met in San Francisco on April 25, 1945, to form the United Nations" (Thomas p.1).

The Conard-Pyle Company was founded in 1897, but can trace its roots back to 1874 when Charles Dingee (1825-1911) and Alfred Conard (1835-1906) started Harmony Grove Nursery. Charles Dingee was a former dairy farmer and Alfred Conard was descended from a German Quaker farming family. Dingee and Conard originally specialized in fruit trees, but soon began producing roses at the request of Mrs. Dingee (Conard-Pyle Company, History, p.1). Despite their success -or perhaps, because of it - Dingee and Conard had a falling out in 1892 that ultimately ended their partnership. Dingee continued his operation of the Dingee & Conard Company until his death in 1911.

In 1897, Conard joined with Antoine Wintzer and S. Morris Jones to form the Conard and Jones Company. Wintzer, a hybridizer who hailed from Alsace Lorraine, had left the Dingee and Conard Company around the same time as Conard. Both men established small nurseries across the street from the Dingee and Conard Company nursery. S. Morris Jones, a dairy farmer whose land bridged the gap between Conard and Wintzer's land, was persuaded to invest his land in the new company (Conard-Pyle Company, History, p.2). The Conard and Jones Company was incorporated on June 3, 1897, with Wintzer serving as head nurseryman. The company operated as a mail order nursery and seed business that sold their own root-roses while still small.

Successful merchant Robert L. Pyle invested in the company in 1898. Two years later his son, Robert Pyle (March 7, 1877-September 28, 1951) joined the company as a helper, and soon worked his way up to Director of Marketing. The business bloomed under his direction (Quillman, p.49). Conard died in 1906 and in 1907 Robert Pyle and his father purchased Conard's share of the company. Robert Pyle became President, and that same year made history by marketing the slogan, "Guaranteed to Bloom". It was the first time in the horticulture industry that product was sold to consumers with a guarantee (Conard-Pyle Company, p.5). Pyle soon came to believe that specialization was the key to success, and choose roses as the company's new focus (Conard-Pyle Company, The History of Conard-Pyle, p. 3). In 1908 he trademarked the term "Star Roses" as a way to distinguish the company's roses from the competition.

S. Morris Jones retired in 1923, and the name of the company was changed to Conard-Pyle (Conard-Pyle, Company, p.1). Soon after the company purchased additional land in Jennersville, Pennsylvania and established the Red Rose Inn, which held an annual "Red Rose Rent Day" event. In 1930, Antoine Wintzer died and Sidney Hutton was hired as the new business manager. Soon after his sons Sidney Jr. and Richard joined the company.

The United States Plant Patent Act passed in 1930 and Conard-Pyle began to develop and patent new varieties of roses. "Conard-Pyle was among the first to patent new roses and license other leading nurseries to grow and sell them" (Thomas, p.2). In 1932 Conard-Pyle entered a partnership with French hybridizer Francis Meilland's company, The House of Meilland. When war descended upon Europe in 1939, Meilland made an effort to save a new rose variety he had developed. He sent parcels of the new rose to associates in Germany and Italy, as well as to Conard-Pyle. After several successful trials across the United States, the famous "Peace" Rose was patented in 1943 and officially unveiled on the day Berlin fell to Allied forces (Conard-Pyle Company, The History of Conard-Pyle, p. 4). The Peace Rose was distributed to delegates as they arrived at the first meeting of the United Nations in 1945. Almost every new rose today is a descendant of the Peace Rose.

Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, the Conard-Pyle Company continued to successfully develop and patent numerous award-winning roses. Upon Pyle's death in 1951, the Huttons purchased the company and Sidney B. Hutton, Sr. became president. He was succeeded as president by his sons Sidney B. (Beany) Hutton, Jr. in 1964 and Richard J. (Dick) Hutton in 1974. In 1978, Conard-Pyle dissolved its retail garden center and mail order business and to become a strictly wholesale nursery business. In 1986 Steven B. Hutton became president of Conard-Pyle (Conard-Pyle Company, The History of Conard-Pyle, p. 4). As of 2011, Conard-Pyle continues to develop and market quality and award-winning plants.

Series II, "Financial records, 1897 – 1997," includes transactional and documentary material concerning financial activities conducted during the course of retail and wholesale business at Conard-Pyle. There are sales invoices, journals of operating expenses, bank account summaries, and annual financial reports. Some of the sales books, as well as additional account books, are in the form of oversize ledgers, and are stored apart from the majority of the series content. The large number of sales books in this series is particularly notable, as they provide an unbroken financial history of the company's retail operations, dating from the company's founding as Conard-Jones in 1897 to the permanent cessation of the retail business in 1978. Unfortunately, there are no records to document the receipt or payment of royalty monies as these transactions fell under the domain of a separate Licensing Department when active. They may be found alongside the records of that department in series IV. This series is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Series V. Marketing, promotions and advertising, 1876-2000

Series V, "Marketing, promotions and advertising, 1876-2000," contains material related to Conard-Pyle's advertising and marketing operations. This series is further organized into nine subseries: "Advertising, 1910-1991," "Catalogs, 1876-2000," "Price lists and buyer's guides, 1973-1999," "Mail order, 1960-1999," "Catalog production records, 1957-1994," "Publishing firms, 1964-1988," "Rose show covers, 1972-1985," "Press releases, 1963-1990," and "Catalogs for other nurseries, circa 1970-1990." Original folder titles were retained whenever possible.

Subseries V.A. Advertising, 1910-1991

Contains all materials related to Conard-Pyle's promotion, publicity, and advertising, for both individual flower varieties and for the company as a whole. In particular, there is correspondence with advertising agencies such as Charles Blum Advertising, Dickson Associates Advertising, and the Fondren/Miller Advertising Agency, as well as magazine advertisements and promotional materials. The promotional material forms the bulk of the subseries, and consists of printed flyers, inserts, mailers, folders and advertising posters for the company and individual flowers, all of which were distributed to customers with catalogs or by mail. The majority of this material pertains to the company's retail business before its 1970s conversion to an exclusively wholesale enterprise. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Includes documentation relating to the longstanding professional friendship and business partnership between the Conard-Pyle Company and the Meilland family's rose breeding interest, which would be known as Universal Rose Selection (now Meilland International). The material in this series is representative of the lengthy partnership between the two companies, through which Conard-Pyle marketed Meilland rose varieties in the United States. Researchers will find descriptions of Meilland roses, rose name selection, Meilland promotional material, and a large number of meeting minutes dating from 1955 to 1983. The majority of this series, however, consists of correspondence between representatives of Conard-Pyle and representatives of Universal Rose Selection, as well as between Sidney Hutton and Alain Melliand, who took his father Francis' place as head of the company in 1957. The correspondence is generally limited to business-related subject matter, such as the acquisition of patents and background material for publicity of Meilland roses, and the scheduling of business meetings between Sidney Hutton and Alain Meilland. This series is arranged alphabetically by subject.

Many files also include photographs and descriptive narratives about each variety, as well as any relevant correspondence between the original hybridizer and the Conard-Pyle Company. Also included, for those files concerning licensed plants, are patent assignments or other transfers of rights and ownership. Many varieties of rose are represented, including a large selection of AARS award-winners such as "Scarlet Knight," "Bonica," "White Knight," "Scarabande," "Fire King" and "Carefree Wonder." This series is arranged alphabetically by variety name.
