American Singer Snippets
 

The following are snippets of information gleaned from various places about American Singers, American Singer breeders, and historical items related to American Singer canaries. If you know of anything interesting that should be added, please contact the webmaster at webmaster@americansingercanary.com 

Please note: this information is correct to the best of my knowledge. Much of it has been culled from show reports found in American Cage Bird Magazine, American Canary Magazine, old national American Singer newsletters, and other similar sources. Although efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy of transcription, no guarantee is made of the accuracy of the original information.

For some folks, this is a walk down Memory Lane!

In the October 1940 issue of American Canary Magazine the following item appeared in the " 'Round The Circuit" feature:

"Mr. Charles Radocy of Trenton writes us that he has been active in the interests of American Singers in his section of the country. He suggests that there should be A.S. sections in Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia. Our club stands primarily for the production of a better-bred bird to be known as an American bred bird- a bird with better song, better type and better color. A special tag will be in every cage exhibiting an A.S. bird in the Chicago combined show to be held Nov. 15, 16 and 17. These tags will be small and will utilize the A.S. emblem in red, white and blue. To the one securing the most members for the year goes a $10.00 bill and to the one securing the most members during any one month will go a beautiful A.S. standard show cage. New members for the last month were added as follows: Joseph Stern, New York City; Joseph Schepple, New York City; Hans Burgmaer, New York City; Mrs. Rose Firestone, Brooklyn, N.Y.; Viola Truitt, New York City; Miss Hazel Seetens, Chicago; and Mrs. E.

A biographical sketch of Mrs. Rose Green, American Singers Club judge, appeared in the October 1965 issue of American Cage Bird Magazine. The sketch was a part of an article entitled "1965 National Cage Bird Show News". The article read as follows:

" Mrs. Rose Green, St. Louis, Missouri, Judge of American Singers

 

For many years an active competitor in bird shows, Mrs. Green has in her possession 87 trophies, 109 Rosettes and 200 Blue Ribbons. To her, it seems a long time ago when she first had a winning bird and her award for that one was two silver dollars and a bag of bird seed. She still has the silver dollars.

 

She started breeding canaries in 1938 and in 1941 became a member of the American Singer Club. In that year she won blue ribbons on both of her entries in a St. Louis show. The following year she got a trophy for The Second Best American Singer. She modestly says that she considers luck to have played a part in her continuing success in shows in Dayton, Peoria, Cincinnati and Chicago.

 

To her, she says, National shows are exciting and she looks forward to them from year to year. She says, just as in the Kentucky Derby, when the best horse wins, so it is in National Shows, where the best bird wins- and the work of the judges as they slowly and carefully compare and eventually pick the winning bird is every bit as exciting as a horse race. And she says, the National Shows are always a place where old friends can meet again and talk "bird".

 

She believes that because San Antonio has a favorable climate and because it seems evident that proper ground work has been done the November show will be a success. It will be a "first" in Texas to her and she is looking forward to it."

An article written by Peg Frick- American Singers Club president and regular contributor to American Cage Bird Magazine in the 1960's- included the following information about Madeline Mysliwiec, American Singer judge and ASC Secretary - Treasurer:

"... Madeline Mysliwiec (the hardest working secretary I know of) is the judge. She knows and likes good song and is pretty fussy about conformation. She's good and doesn't fool around. She takes her judging seriously and when you win under her you know you've got a good bird..." (American Cage Bird Magazine, November 1965)

The same article later discusses ASC judge Tom Powell and notes that he was one of the first American Singer breeders and is also a Type breeder. Mrs. Frick noted that "Anyone who wins under him really has got to be on the ball. Tom is no newcomer and he knows his birds." (American Cage Bird Magazine, November 1965)
