    Pearl Henderson of Beebe, Arkansas, passed away on December 27, 2020. Miss Pearl was a beloved founding member of the National Taxidermists Association and was the only person who attended every NTA convention from the first one in Poplar Bluff, Missouri in 1972 to the last one in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 2019. She taught the first NTA seminar mounting a two-headed calf. She is pictured above at the 2004 NTA Convention where she received the Pioneer Award from NTA co-founder Lola Haynes.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    A very special lady. When I sat on the NTA board, I created the Pearl Henderson Award for longevity and dedication to the industry. She was the first recipient of her namesake award. Four years ago , I was humbled when she presented her award to me. IMG_20160611_175745383_HDR.jpg

    I met Mrs Pearl at the first NTA meeting at Poplar Bluff,Missouri. She brought a life size 2 headed calf that she made the mannikin for. She did a great job on it. She was a excellent taxidermist and a very nice person. Rip , Mrs Pearl.
