JOHN G. LAYTHAM  - (3/15/06–9/24/83) Jack was the President of APC in 1962, ’63 and ’68, Secretary, and Director as well as a member of AKC’s Advisory Committee for Pointing Dog Field Trials.  He authored “The Pointer” in 1981.  Favorite pointers he bred or owned include Ch. Happy Squaw, Ch. Ruralville Stylish Mike and Ch. Redwing Of Indian Springs.  He was a respected and most sought after judge for both shows and field trials, and his name was synonymous with the American Pointer Club Field Trials.  Jack was described as a kind and friendly man, a breed enthusiast who always took time to encourage newcomers and amateur owners by extending a warm handshake and the willingness to take time to share with them the joys of owning a Pointer.
