Hall Of Fame

The American Spaniel Club first inducted members into its Hall of Fame in 1995 when current members nominated candidates to the Hall of Fame in four different categories. In 1999, those categories were simplified to just two: Service to the Organization and Contribution to the Breed.

It is the purpose of the Hall of Fame to capture for succeeding generations the memory of the extraordinary and not the ordinary.

Hall of Fame Inductees for 2015: Mary & Norman Barnes and Charles P. Born 

Mary and Norman Barnes
Norman and Mary Barnes

Mary Barnes bred and showed cocker spaniels from the late 1940's until she whelped her last litter in the early 1990's.  She was primarily known for her black cockers and especially her beautiful black bitches but she also finished ASCOBs and Parti-colors.  It is altogether fitting and proper that we pay tribute to Mary and Norman Barnes and induct them into the ASC Hall of Fame for their Contributions to the Breed.
