DR. ROCKWOOD H. THAYER
DR. ROCKWOOD H. THAYER – (1902--1981) Twice APC President (1970 & ’71) and a Director several times, this surgeon used the “Misty Meadows” prefix, named after his country place in Massachusetts and the site of a fun trial and party for APC he hosted. “Rocky” was always known to support the Club’s activities with both his generosity and his presence. Homebred “Goldie” was his favorite pointer, Ch. Goldilocks of Misty Meadow. Jack Laytham (HOF) recalled at one of the APC’s trials at the du Pont Estate in Delaware, Goldie had two finds; was staunch but on flush, broke and with her great speed, caught the bird in mid-air and retrieved it to her owner with hardly a feather ruffled!
