The founders of the IGBA - US Chapter wished to
promote the Gloster Canary in the United states. They were very
familiar with the many Gloster Specialty Clubs in England and
especially with the International Gloster Breeders Association in
the United Kingdom, which, in company with other clubs, was
affiliated with the Gloster Convention.
Harold Sodamann and Mark
Whiteaker traveled to England where they requested and
received authorization to found a chapter of the IGBA in the US.
