About the Author

Russ J. Goldberger is a well-regarded dealer and collector in quality antique decoys with over 36 years experience. He is the third generation from his family to participate actively in the antiques and art business. It was this acquired appreciation of form and surface, coupled with a love of the water and waterfowl, that attracted Russ to decoy collecting. Russ, originally from Long Island, New York, spent most of his business career in the Midwest. Russ and his wife Karen have lived in New Hampshire for 24 years where their business, RJG Antiques, offers quality antique decoys, folk art, American country furniture and accessories in their original painted surfaces. They have a large antique and decoy gallery in their home, available by appointment. Russ had had the pleasure of working with most of the major decoy collectors. He believes that "Masons are unrivaled from a design craftsman ship, collectibility and value standpoint"
Alan G. Haid is well known as a collector and author in the field of classic antique waterfowl decoys. He and his wife Elaine have actively collected decoys for more than 46 years. His first book, "Decoys of the Mississippi Flyway." published in 1981, is the definitive work on that area. He was the decoy columnist for Sporting Classics magazine from 1982 to 1989. His writings and interviews have appeared in North American Decoys, Wildfowl Carving and Collecting, Decoy Hunter, The American Sporting Collector's Handbook and Hunting and Fishing Collectibles. Alan has always appreciated the exceptional quality of Mason decoys. He made the presentation, "The Mason Decoy Factory, 1896-1924: Undisputed Royalty of Factory Made Bird Decoys," at the day-long seminar at Sotheby's in conjunction with the McCleery auction in January 2000. Alan and Elaine live in Connecticut and dealers of quality decoys on a full-time basis.
