Mari Doty and her husband Norman bred and exhibited cocker spaniels for well over thirty years using the prefix Nor-Mar. She is also an approved cocker spaniel judge.

As the editor of the American Cocker Review, Mari was a staunch supporter of the club through her magazine for many years. She served the club as a board member, correspondent to the AKC Gazette and chair of the standard committee. She wrote and illustrated The Cocker Spaniel Show Trim and So You Want To Show Your Cocker Spaniel. (Note: These publications have been updated by the ASC Foundation and are available for purchase from the ASC Secretary).

Through her magazine she spearheaded the Cocker Spaniel research fund that led to nationwide clinics and those clinics are still being utilized to this day. Mari’s contributions to the club and to the breed will always be remembered.
