Bob Whitman Remembered

Bob in the 2006 ARBA convention in Forth Worth, TX.

The greatest rabbit history book, written by Bob.

It's hard to believe that another great rabbit breeder had passed away. Bob Whitman, ARBA director and the greatest rabbit historian, passed away in the morning hours of June 10, 2009. He was in his late 50s.

It would be hard to list all Bob's accomplishments; he had been in rabbits for over 40 years since he was a youth. What we knew him the best was the history column in the Domestic Rabbits and his 450+ page book of "Domestic Rabbits and Their Histories". Most of all, he was a very kind person.

We will miss Bob and miss all the wonderful knowledge that he shared with us.

    My heart just hurts this week with the loss of two wonderful rabbit people. Thanks for keeping us updated Betty.
