    Hello all, I attend Campbell University in North Carolina and was in our business building when I came across our heritage museum. The man in which the building was named after was a international big game hunter. He has a room full of his trophies in the building, I went through and snapped a few photos but was wondering if anyone knew anymore about him or some of the trophies that I am not familiar with. Attached are the photos I took. I can take more if anyone would like to see more!

    The only date that is on any of the trophies is the polar bear which he shot in 1967 and I was curious as to when do you all think he had gone on the safaris for things such as his black rhino, jaguar, etc. ?

    Collected the specimens on Safari expeditions in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
    It was donated in the late 1980's to Campbell University.
    That would be a Leopard he hunted, not a Jaguar.

    The ordeal the collection went through for restoration after a fire.

    Definitely worth the drive amazing to see his collection! If you plan a trip the museum is only open Mondays and Tuesdays from 10:30-3:30. But they can open it by special appointment!

    All the literature says Leopard. I'm going to check and stand corrected for believing them.
    You never know if the restoration company just decided to label it or perhaps he was one of the last hunters on the planet to hunt one.

    Someone had best change the name plate. I see Rosettes, not clusters. :)

    I will take a individual picture of what they say is the Jaguar and let you decide what it is, I wasn't really paying attention to that with the monster situanga next to it haha!

    Very nice, thanks for sharing!

    But I am wondering if this was really donated by Burrows T Lundy or by Mrs. Burrows T Lundy, shortly after the passing of her husband.................

    Very nice. There is a collection like this at Cumberland University in Lebanon Tn. It's a shame when someone hunts a lifetime and builds a fine trophy room only to have family give it away when they are gone.
