Nipper was chosen for his close connection to Moorestown and recording pioneer Eldridge Johnson, founder of the Victor Talking Machine Company. In 1900, Johnson bought the rights to the painting, "His Master's Voice" and used the image on his "Victor" machines and records. Nearly 20 years later, Johnson moved his family to Moorestown from Camden. His machine shop there evolved into a major manufacturing enterprise- and made Nipper a very famous dog.

This exciting event will be held Sunday, October 9, from 7 – 11pm in Strawbridge’s Court at Moorestown Mall, 400 Route 38, Moorestown, N.J.
