FDSB:
""Fishel's Frank (11145)". U.R. Fishel, Hope, Ind. Breeder, J.A. Stam, Hope, Ind, Whelped January 20, 1904. White and liver dog. Sire, "Fishel's Rip Rap" (6991, FDSB); dam, "Boy's Queen", "Jingo's Boy" (570 FDSB) -- "Nellie Rush" ("Rushaway Dick" x "Ruby Rap")." -- FDSB 1907, vol.VII.


""Fishel's Frank" sired 58 field trial winners, many of them champions and top-flight peformers. ... Two of his sons made Pointer history. They were "Comanche Frank" and "John Proctor", both out of daughters of "Alford's John"". ... Both won the National Championships ("Comanche Frank" in 1914 and "John Proctor" in 1916) in addition to other field trial title events. Both established winning and producing families which have made and are continuing to make Pointer history." -- The Sportsman's Bookshelf, Volume XIII, Hunting Dogs and Their Uses: The Stackpole Company, Harrisburg, PA, 1951


"What the "four aces" were to the Pointers of the early days, what "Croxteth" and "King of Kent" were to a later period, and what "Rip Rap" and "Jingo" were still later, "Alford's John" and "Fishel's Frank" were in the period following the turn of this century." -- The Sportsman's Bookshelf, Volume XIII, Hunting Dogs and Their Uses: The Stackpole Company, Harrisburg, PA, 1951


"Three years after "Alford's John" made his first appearance, U.R. Fishel, Hope, Indiana, brought out a youngster named "Fishel's Frank", and won second with him in the Nebraska Derby. Frank ... soon attracted much attention by his spectacular performances and it was not long before breeders were flocking to his banner. He won on many occasions, but the race which brought him more fame than any was a race he lost. This was the National Championship of 1908. "Count Whitestone II" won, but for months afterwards the field trial gallery buzzed with argument that "Fishel's Frank" should have been the new champion. And the dog's fame continued to spread. After this race he was retired to the stud." -- The Sportsman's Bookshelf, Volume XIII, Hunting Dogs and Their Uses: The Stackpole Company, Harrisburg, PA, 1951


"The Field Trial Hall of Fame was initiated in 1954, and since that time, each year, deserving dogs and worthy field trial personalities have been elected." -- American Field: The Sportsman Journal, Website, 2002

"Induction to the Field Trial Hall of Fame is an honor. The dogs were inducted based on their performance in trials and their ability to produce winning offspring. The Field Trial Hall of Fame is part of the National Bird Dog Museum located in Grand Junction, Tennessee." -- UplandBirdDog.com Website, 2002

Five pointers were inducted into the Field Trial Hall of Fame in 1954. "Fishel's Frank", "John Proctor", "Luminary", "Mary Montrose", and "Muscle Shoal's Jake".
