Mr. Fallenscale, Mr. Magicmick, Mr. Msestak, I presume you were all donors, but I can't guess from the donors list. Incidentally, are you aware that those bricks were never planned as part of the original monument? The idea came about as an afterthought insofar as there were enough extra funds left over to cover the cost of the bricks. Someone in charge decided it would be a fine way to show appreciation to all those who pitched in with donations. Furthermore, it took donations from non-taxidermists to reach the monetary goals. This so-called 'industry' did not support this memorial project as a class of practitioners. Can anyone show me an ad from a taxidermy magazine or state association newsletter that ran a single plug for this project during its fundraising period? (I hope I'm wrong.) If just the Akeley Award winners from all the state and national competitions had pitched in a few bucks there would have been enough bricks to surround the monument perhaps three or four feet wide. I'd like to say more on this subject, and may yet, but for now just take a gander at the names of all who answered the call to honor one of taxidermy's greatest men with the only outdoor monument to his great gifts to all who practice and love the art of taxidermy. Then notice whose names do not appear on the donors list.
