I would like some information on what happened to this school and the J.W.Elwood Supply co. as i took the course by mail years ago in jr.high never had a place to practice the taxidermy part but did get into the tanning i still have all corrispondance that was sent except for one booklet on tanning that i loaned to a friend and never got back and was hoping to get it replaced. tried every thing to get in touch with them a couple a years ago and couldnt so i gave up on it until i got this computer and found this place. Thanks in advance for any information on where they went and why.KP

They went out of business in 1998. Someone had the same quesion as you because his grandson had completed the work and sent photos to the school but they were returned undeliverable. I still have my set of booklets as well as my Dad's. I think if you check Ebay you might find a set of the booklets. Good luck.
I have that book. I can make some copies for you if you like. Please call or Email me.
