How did you first become involved in dogs? What breeds have you been involved with and in what capacity – breeder, owner, handler?

I was an AKC-licensed professional handler. I showed my first dog, a Smooth Fox Terrier, at a match on Long Island in 1935. I’ve bred or owned numerous breeds including Affenpinschers, Boston Terriers, Boxers, Lhasas, Whippets, Brussels Griffons, English Toy Spaniels, Maltese, Miniature Schnauzers, Norfolks, Norwich, Pugs, Toy Manchesters, Old English Sheepdogs, Wire and Smooth Fox Terriers, Poodles, Doberman Pinschers and Labrador Retrievers. ‘Bear,’ my Affenpinscher, was the very first in the world of his breed to achieve a Best in Show. I am also a past president of the New York Boxer Club and the American Lhasa Apso Club and current show chairman for the Adirondack dog show circuit.

Who has been your mentor or mentors?

Alva Rosenberg and Percy Roberts were very helpful to me as mentors.

What is, or was, your profession?

I graduated with a degree in entomology (the study of insects — Ed.) from Purdue University and am a former director and vice president for several major national chemical companies. I am a naval veteran of World War II.

Do you have any hobbies or special interests other than judging?

I collect coins and stamps, bowl, and like cooking.

Do you have any pet peeves when judging?

A pet peeve is exhibitors baiting when I’m trying to exam their dog.
