Norman K. Meyer - September 17, 1929 - December 20, 2015 May of us old timers may recall that Norm Meyer was an NTA charter member, NTA board member (1972 - 1983) and NTA vice president (1984 - 1985). He was also a former chairman of the National Taxidermists Hall of Fame and in 1990 became an inductee as well. Having served our country during the Korean war in Army 82ND Airborne, Norm successfully went on to run his own taxidermy studio in Miamitown, Ohio where he developed and marketed his own technique of fish fill taxidermy that became the choice of many more taxidermists than one would believe. Knowing Norm as personally as I have, his passion was the National Taxidermist Hall of Fame. Every slide, photo and document he ever placed into the custody of yours truly, is safe and sound here for future research and referential purposes that may someday come to be needed in the future. Of the many achievements that Norm realized in his life, teaching taxidermy at Princeton High School and at Northern Kentucky University were among his numerous other contributions to our industry. He never stopped 'teaching' taxidermy nor did he need a classroom to do it from. In many ways, Norm was a personal mentor to me in all the years of my service to the NTA by always being just a phone call away. He will forever be remembered in the vault of my heart for helping little boys and girls mount their trout that they personally caught in special indoor trout ponds that were at the New York City sportsmen show back in 1964. There was a 10 year old boy there whose little hands were guided by Norm's as the small trout was skinned, cleaned, boraxed, filled and sewn in less time that it would take to read the New York Post. Today, that little boy now thanks Norm Meyer, as he begins his new life with all the other NTHF inductees he never had the chance to meet, in whatever section of Heaven that taxidermists go to be with each other, and their God. Thank you Norm for everything you did for the NTA, our industry and of course, for this NTA past president too.
