I received a notice today from a colleague in Texas, apparently the man who has been documenting the history of the breed needs a successor, and quickly. If you know of anyone who would be interested, I would appreciate the pass along.
I am trying very hard to help a man who has terminal cancer. He has been
the National Historian for the American Pit Bull Society for over 35 years.
He has amassed a huge amount of history and 55,000 photos.
His wish is to see his work continue and he has been unable to find anyone
to take his position. I do not know this person; my connection to him is on
another matter; but he lamented this issue.
I have thought about this all day and am deeply saddened that he may die
before I can find someone to take over his work. There are those who wish
to eradicate all pitbulls, hopefully, they will lose their battle; but these
records are valuable to the history of the breed.
His time is short, so I am searching for someone to take his position and
continue his work. If you or someone you know, would be interested in
helping this gentleman, please contact me privately and I will give you his
information and help in anyway possible.
Thank you for your help.
