1960 Field Trial Hall of Fame
The four inductees in the 1960 Field Trial Hall of Fame were Raymond Hoagland and John S. Gates and the dogs: Becky Broom Hill and Lester’s Enjoy’s Wahoo. Here from the American Field August 20, 1960 issue of the American Field:
Here’s what was written about the late great John S. Gates, father to John Rex Gates, Robin Gates and Sheila (Gates) Wheaton. July 1960_AmField HOF_John S. Gates
The last paragraph reads as follows:
“Bestow upon this man the great honor that he so richly deserves and let him rejoice with his gracious wife, his three children and his grandson.”
Strideaway rarely, if ever, expresses an opinion on the Field Trial Hall of Fame or mentions who, as individuals, Mazie and/or I support. This year is different. Votes will soon be tallied. Strideaway respectfully calls upon the Field Trial Hall of Fame Committee to: Bestow upon this man, Robin Gates, the great honor that he so richly deserves.
John S. Gates, elected to the HOF in 1960.
