1964-2013. All programs are in fine to near new condition. Item #006701
A series of 23 Weatherby Award dinner programs. These programs were available only to attendees of the Weatherby Award dinner, which was invitation only till the late 1980s. It is unknown if the first 3 dinners (1956-1958) had dinner programs but there after apparently all dinners did. The programs list that year’s winner plus a resume of his accomplishments as well as the nominees of that year. In addition some dinners had a list of guests and bios of past winners. They have a complete program of the speakers, the food and wine served and more. All have elegant gilt stamping (often a sheep head) on the front covers and are printed on very nice (deckled edged) paper. Obviously the early programs are the very hardest to find. It is estimated that by the early 1960s the dinner had about 200 guests and probably most of them threw the programs away afterwards. We can hereby offer; 1964, 1966, 1971, 1976, 1989, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013. Some of the winners during these years were Dr. Frank Hibben, Dr. W. Brandon Macomber, Juan Naude, Rudolf Sand, Donald Cox, Irvin Barnhart, Adiran Sada Alan Sackman and many more. In addition several of the programs are signed by such individuals as Wally Schirra (astronaut) Frank Hibben, George Landreth and others. Also included are color printed newsletters of the Weatherby Foundation, which took over the Weatherby Award in the late 1990s. These newsletters were handed out at each dinner.
