Conference 1982

The Guild of Taxidermy Conference Competitions

held at the University of East Anglia in March 1982

WAGSTAFFE TROPHY - introduced to be awarded in a different aspect of taxidermy to be decided by the Committee.  It is named after Reginald Wagstaffe who was well known throughout the museum world for his expert knowledge in not one, but several fields of natural history.  He was probably better known as the co-author of that standard reference work, 'Preservation of Natural History Specimens'.  He was also a competent taxidermist.  The trophy is a Royal Worcester Porcelain Medallion.

BIRD COMPETITION on the study of bird skins was also first introduced this year.
