ABC Show Stats: Futurity

"In 1944 Fred Hamm, midway in his six-year tenure as ABC President, appointed Jim Rosenjohn to head a new 'puppy sweepstakes' committee. The work and planning of this committee resulted in the creation of the Futurity in 1945. At that time, the Futurity was considered somewhat innovative. Originally just for puppies under one year of age, the 12-18-month classes were added in 1948, and because of the increasing numbers, colors soon also divided classes. The first ABC Futurity was held on February 11, 1945 at the Hotel McAlpine in New York City with our second independent specialty."    ~ Excerpt from the ABC 50th Anniversary Album

As the Futurity became more popular over the years, it grew from the small numbers at its inception. 1945 had 35 entrants, and there are currently well over 200.

In the first year the ABC Specialty Judge, Mrs. Alfred E. Cousins, also judged the Futurity. The next year a Boxer breeder was chosen to judge, and Dr. S. Potter Bartley officiated. Today not only breeders, but also Boxer handlers with strong Boxer experience have been selected by ABC membership vote.

In 1969, the Futurity entry topped 100. In 1977 the ABC National Specialty moved from New York City to the Woodbridge Armory in NJ, and the next year (1978) ABC became a two-day event. The entries in the Futurity increased to over 150. As both the entries for the Specialty and Futurity grew, so did the timeframe. The Specialty now spans five days with the Puppy Futurity Classes judged on the first day, and the Junior Futurity and Grand Prize Futurity judged the second day. The largest Futurity entry to date was 274.
