Looking For Historical Photos etc. For New Book!

Submitted by John Bellucci on 9/19/1998. ( ArtistExpr@aol.com )

Now that I've completed my first book: "The Breatkthrough - Art Of The Big Cat - Manual", I'm starting on another. It is tentatively called, "The History of Taxidermy in the United States". This is our past as an industry, and it was pretty glorious for a while, what with the likes of Hornaday, Akeley, Clark, Rockwell, Jonas, and Inchumuk - just to name a few. They paved the way and broke all kinds of ground that so many take for granted. I think the time has come to write about where we came from as an industry and art form, so that we may know where we are going. I am therefore looking for any old, but good quality - reprintable if you will - archival photos of some of these men at their work; any papers on preparation that may have been produced, for inclusion into the book - all material returnable to those who donate of course; as well as any additional sources and such, any of you out there may know of. All help will be greatly appreciated and duely noted as a contribution to the book. My heartfelt thanks in advance to any who can come forward here.
