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.
