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
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.
Charles P. Born
Charlie’s commitment to the advancement and protection of the Cocker Spaniel and the American Spaniel Club qualify him as an outstanding candidate for the American Spaniel Club Hall of Fame for Contributions to the Organization. We honor Charles Born by inducting him into the ASC Hall of Fame for his Contributions to the Organization.
