Our efforts to uncover some of ARC's history are still pending;
however, thanks to Mike Watson, we finally have some very special
images to add to this page. Please see the images and Mike's
message below. Thanks, Mike! We appreciate your
visiting my friend, Steve Basht (a former ARC member), in
Maryland this past fall,
I was looking through one of his many rare books on Labrador
Retrievers and field trials. These two pages were immediately of
interest to me. Once I saw your new layout of the ARC website, I
knew that these would possibly spark some interest from other
members in gathering more historical data on the ARC. I requested
that Steve digitize these pages so that I could present them to ARC
on his behalf.
display these files on the ARC Historical webpage for posterity
the data on the book that these were obtained from so that proper
identification of the source can be credited.
