BERYL V. HIRSCHBERGER – (8/27/10–-2/19/83) This dear lady served as the American Pointer Club’s AKC Gazette columnist with wit and grace for more than a quarter century (1956–1982). As such, she was the natural bond between all Pointer people. She began in pointers in the late 1940’s with Ch. Lady Jane Of Aldendale (Hall of Fame Ch. Governor Moscow bloodlines from England), bred her and produced the fine Ch. Lady’s Man (the “Old Gentleman”); acquired the English bitch Ch. Lucent of Abbottsend (also with HOF Ch. Governor Moscow bloodlines) and established the “Ry-Hi” program with a background from American Richland. Some of her champions and top producers were Ry-Hi’s Gunsmoke, Ch. Ry-Hi’s Great Gunner, Ch. Ry-Hi’s The Tennessean CD, Ch. Ry-Hi’s Roundabout Raccoon, Ch. Ry-Hi’s The Tennessee Waltz, Ch. Ry-Hi’s Wayward Witch and Ch. Ry-Hi’s The Chocolate Moose. Beryl served as APC Secretary in the early 1950’s, was Treasurer and Director for many years and was always well known for her friendliness and encouragement to newcomers in the fancy.
