Scottish Terrier Club of America History
SOME FACTS CONCERNING ITS EARLY HISTORY
By Caswell Barrie
When I undertook to write this article dealing with the early history of the Scottish Terrier Club of America I had no idea the work would be so interesting and difficult. I assumed it would entail the setting down in chronological order easily accessible, important and interesting facts in the life of the club. However, I soon found that to garner even a portion of such matter would be difficult, for with the exception of recent years there are no complete Club records to use as source material. So the task has resolved itself into digging here and digging there to unearth a few facts, going to this old time member or that long time breeder to glean a few reminiscences. It is by these means that I have collected the information which I have set down in the following article. I present it as sort of a frame work which I hope will serve as the beginning for a more complete document and I ask all those interested who can draw upon their memories or who have in their possession old letters, magazine clippings or other material bearing upon the history of the Club, its officers, members, judges, breeders, exhibitors, specialty shows, trophies and famous dogs to communicate with the writer with a view to including such material in any subsequent edition of this booklet which may be published.
I take this opportunity of expressing my sincere appreciation and thanks to Dr. Fayette C. Ewing and Mr. Henry D. Bixby who have very materially aided me in assembling the data which appears in the present article.
The Scottish Terrier Club of America was organized in 1900. It owns its being to the enthusiasm and hard work of two gentlemen, Dr. Fayette C. Ewing who at that time was a resident of St. Louis, Mo. and Mr. J. Steele Mackenzie of Cincinnati, Ohio, who brought together in the membership of the Club that little group of Scottie lovers who thirty-nine years ago were struggling to improve and popularize their beloved Diehard.
In 1895, before the formation of the Scottish Terrier Club of America, there had been an organization known as the American Scottish Terrier Club composed of four or five gentlemen who had attempted to foster the breed but after several years they abandoned the idea, at least so far as a specialty club was concerned, for the American Scottish Terrier Club ceased to exist. However, its treasurer, Mr. James I. Little of Boston, Mass. became active in the new Club.
The STCA Board passed the following resolution on Legislation:
7-9-10: Motion: I make a motion to adopt and publish this statement. The Scottish Terrier Club of America was formed and exists to encourage and promote the responsible breeding and ownership of Scottish Terriers and to protect and advance the interests of these dogs. Towards these ends, all members of the STCA sign the following Code of Ethics.
The STCA encourages its members to become educated about and involved in local legislative issues and to support the AKC. We also ask for members to notify the legislative committee of important legislation in their area.
The following items and links are provided by the STCA Legislative committee. They may be national or local in scope. This is provide for your information because the Legislative committee felt it may be of interested.
