PAUL PALMER   – A distinguished judge and one of APC’s founders and 1st Vice President in 1938, he imported several outstanding pointers during the late 1930’s including future Hall Of Fame Ch. Drumgannon Dreadnought and Ch. Stylish Myrrh Of Rolew (bred in Scotland in 1935 by Isaac Sharpe).  Paul Palmer bred countless champions with his “Rolew” prefix at his kennels in Ridgefield, CT, including Ch. Rolew Startler and Ch. Rolew Rhyme (both out of Myrrh).  She was also the dam of Ch. Herewithem General Mac and Ch. Herewithem Old Glory, pointers Bob Maloney chose to send to England as gifts after WWII.  As a judge, Mr. Palmer was one of the earliest to discover future Hall Of Fame Ch. Vilmar’s Lucky as he put him up from the classes to Best Of Breed at the APC Specialty in 1954.  He served as the APC AKC Gazette columnist in 1955, AKC Delegate during most of the ‘50’s, and was instrumental in revising the Pointer standard in 1957.  His address on the APC membership roster simply read “Paul Palmer, Readers Digest, Pleasantville, NY.  He was editor in the 1950’s.
