   AKC HISTORY
 
Major James M. Taylor
1884
A witness to one of the most perilous periods in American history, Major James Taylor saw first-hand how dysfunctional dog shows had become; he felt compelled to correct this and ultimately lay the groundwork for the AKC. His values, integrity, continuity and commitment, have transcended his life and have become the core values of the American Kennel Club for the past 125 years.
