Jimmy, as he preferred to be called, was the Secretary of the American Rabbit Breeders Association for nearly thirty years, from 1945 to 1973. As well as his involvement with the American, he was also very active from the early 1930's, with serving as a Director of the Dutch Club prior to its reorganization. Jimmy had been the premier Dutch Judge for several years, as well as serving the Club as a Director and Standards Commitee member for countless terms. I might add, he judged National Dutch Shows and Conventions from coast to coast and was considered one of the premeier fancy breed judges.
I am told he bred Dutch rabbits for well over 65 years. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the early 1900's, he bred, showed, judged, and imported Dutch most all of his life. I might add, in closing, he was never big in winning with his Dutch but his name at all the big shows seemed to appear on show reports because of his involvement with either running the meeting, being the Superintendent of the show, judging the Dutch, etc.
It is also noted, he is a long-time Hall of Fame member of the English Spot Club and one of its founders.
