In 1967 I had an opportunity to view Bill Mackey’s impressive collection at an Exhibition of American Bird Decoys at the Paint Art Center in Oshkosh. Seeing these great decoys – the best of the best – just got me hooked.

Other Involvements: Roger is currently President of the Wisconsin Decoy Collectors Association, and President of the Wisconsin Decoy and Sporting Collectibles Annual Show in Oshkosh held every March.

The Collector: Roger is a long-time collector having begun in 1967. His collecting interest centers around decoys from his home state of Wisconsin, including Evans factory decoys, as well as Mason factory decoys.
